About Karmarama

Karmarama are the UK’s most-progressive creative agency and now part of Accenture Interactive. The agency combines creative excellence with technology-inspired solutions, so they can help clients with their business challenges now, and plan for their next business opportunities.

London-based Karmarama was launched by partners Naresh Ramchandani and Dave Buonaguidi in 2000. Before this, they’d worked together at HHCL and were creative directors of the London office of Chiat/Day before launching the first agency, St Luke’s.

Dave left to be Creative Director of Channel 4 before teaming up with Naresh again to launch Karmarama. The current Chief Executive Officer is Ben Bilboul, who heads up 260 employees under the Karma Comms Group banner.

The agency fosters community spirit with regular mass company events. Each year, there’s a three-day skiing trip that’s heavily subsidised by the company. They also hold monthly ‘skint nights’ on the last Thursday of every month in the in-house bar, ‘Barmarama’.

In Open Brief, a team of juniors worked on a project to develop and design a product. It had to have commercial viability and be something they were passionate about. This allowed them to push themselves in a safe environment, i.e. not on live client work.

Friday ‘Big Ups’ improve interaction and communication across teams. They involve the whole department airing views on the week. There are ‘shout outs’ to celebrate people who’ve done well. This improves morale and offers a chance to eat chocolate and drink G&T.
