We’re an award winning London based digital agency that loves ideas, design and technology

We aim to make people’s lives better, easier, fairer, more interesting or fun with great strategy, engaging campaigns and rock solid technology.

Digital Experience

We always take user needs, business goals and an understanding of how value is created as our starting point to develop a strategy for your project. We then build a user experience around this, using first-class planning and beautiful design.


We use all of our collective experience to help our customers implement successful content management solutions, build bespoke, value-focused products and integrate with other platforms to create end-to-end solutions that deliver.


Our focus is firmly on delivering value. That’s why we use Agile methods and why we want to help you become Agile too. We do this by embedding ScrumMasters with client teams and by providing Agile coaching and training services.

We’re a team of marketers, designers, writers, project managers and technologists based by the delightful Exmouth Market. Come join us for a coffee and let’s talk some!

Lots of the team have projects outside of Manifesto and we believe the eclectic mix of thoughts and ideas make the sum of our parts greater than any of us on our own. Although Manifesto was founded in late 2011, many of the team have worked together for many years.
