In 2012, with a two-week old baby and just £1000 in the bank, Andrew Dobbie founded MadeBrave, which is now a global strategic brand agency with clients such as Nestle, KPMG, Medtronic, Diageo, Doritos, Edrington, Kandou, and First Group.

MadeBrave is well-known for its award-winning company culture and bringing its team-sourced brand values to life through creative projects such as murals, films, and animations, then demonstrating these brand values by collaborating with the creative community.

It also looks after its team through family-friendly benefits like enhanced maternity, paternity, and adoption. The company’s new flexible working framework gives its team the freedom to work from wherever is best for them, meaning its recently refurbished studio is now simply a destination for the brand versus a location its team are required to work from.

MadeBrave has an internal DEI Action Group, which facilitates proactive meaningful change in these areas through feedback on policies and initiatives, development of learning resources, and internal events that encourage reflective discussion and open dialogue. It has also recently launched a sustainability group which aims to foster a more environmentally conscious workplace.

At the start of the pandemic, MadeBrave launched a now 3,700 member Linkedin group to support the creative industry. It also helped relaunch a separate online community to complement this group, offering one-to-one support and a job board.
