We’re a creative micro-agency.

It's like a micro-brewery. Except that instead of producing incredibly bespoke, high quality beers, we craft incredibly bespoke, high quality communications.

With loving attention to detail in each and every drop.

“World HQ's ability to quickly absorb themselves in the brand and produce the highest quality work in a timely manner is second to none. Creative ideas come in abundance and projects are always approached in a pragmatic way that puts your objectives first.”

William Dobbie,
Managing Director,
R&B Distillers


Ideas big & small, local & global.

Online, offline & both at once.

Your purpose
is our mission

How we do it

We tackle every new brief with an open mind and a rock-solid aim to solve our client’s business problem.

At World Headquarters you won’t be assigned the intern team. 25 years industry experience working for the world’s biggest brands means lightning fast ideas, understanding and action.


Our style is focused, integrated and realistic. We’re not stuck in our ways. And this is a prima donna free zone. We listen to the brief. We stick to it. And we welcome constructive feedback.


Ideas led
At World Headquarters, ideas are king - regardless of the media. Your brand comms can come to life in a million different ways, and we're here for them.


We interrogate why your audience will be interested in your message, and why they’ll spread the word. And we're not afraid to tell you when they won't.


Greater good
It’s not naive to believe in better. Today, more than ever, it’s an absolute necessity. We'll always try to ensure our work has a positive impact on society and our environment.

We always push our clients towards bolder, more interesting solutions. Many studies have proven the cast iron link between creativity and effectiveness. So we’re more than happy to remind you that being original can lead to a genuine business advantage.


The new, the wonderful
and the unexpected

About us

World Headquarters is a fleet of foot, ideas-led
communications micro-agency run by a versatile,
highly experienced creative team.

Founders and Creative Directors Gav Gordon-Rogers and Gemma Butler have worked together for over 20 years. We also happen to be married. But don't let that put you off - we're used to it by now. We started off by making music videos together in 1997, after Gav had been nominated for a Best Director BAFTA. We created promos for acts including Belle & Sebastian, Snow Patrol, Echo & The Bunnymen and Paul McCartney.

As advertising creatives we’ve delivered national and global campaigns for clients such as Mercedes-Benz, Honda, PlayStation, O2, Unilever, Diageo, Unicef and the BBC.

Our strong track record is thanks to building long and successful partnerships with clients and delivering effective, original and acclaimed communications time and again.

We launched World Headquarters Ltd in 2017. Our focus is on brand storytelling, film-making, and developing meaningful communications for organisations large and small, based pretty much anywhere on planet Earth.

We've been around

Track Record

Prior to launching World Headquarters Gav & Gem worked at some of best regarded advertising agencies in the world including Wieden+Kennedy, Karmarama, Agency Republic and Adam&Eve. Some of them for a few months, some for years and years. These places are where we learnt from the best in the business (thank you, places).

As well as winning countless national and international advertising awards we’ve helped four different agencies to be named the UK's Digital Agency of the Year on ten separate occasions.

Times are changing but our ambition hasn’t. We continue to strive for excellence in both creativity and effectiveness in every project we undertake.
