ABOUT US

We help sustainable and ethical brands to grow and succeed.

Approach

Akepa was born from a drive to help brands that share our values – with a sense of purpose that’s about more than just profit. We want to help those likeminded companies grow and thrive.

We avoid the tunnel-vision that comes with thinking in terms of service labels. Instead, we focus on objectives and think long-term. Like a delicious garam masala, it’s about the perfect blend of spices and techniques to achieve your aim.

Offices

Offices are becoming an anachronism: Akepa is a location independent company that uses a remote working model. We were founded between Barcelona, Spain, and Edinburgh, UK, but we work with people and clients all over the globe – from Africa to Australia.

This international reach is cut from more than a decade working in the digital marketing industry, across the globe.

Psssst: another bonus of our remote working model is that you’ll get a more affordable rate than a trad bricks-and-mortar agency.
