What We Do

Co-creating brand experiences

for students, with students. 

About Us

We're a tight-knit group, always innovating and creating culturally relevant brand campaigns for students, with students. We do what we do because we're passionate about helping brands play a meaningful role in their lives, and in youth culture. Kinda cool, right?

Why?

Because we care about student culture. We strive to deliver ground-breaking marketing. And we want to reward young talent.

But also because we want adventure. We love developing experiences we’d enjoy ourselves, and experimenting with new ways to capture students’ imaginations. We believe in making a difference for students, and for our clients.

Our Values

Collaboration

We love to share knowledge, ideas, and skill-sets, in order to continue growing, innovating, and delivering work that we’re proud of.

Energy

We love the energy and enthusiasm that our student audience embodies, and in turn, we're always trying to reflect that same energy and enthusiasm into everything that we do.

Curiosity

Our student audience is no stranger to new trends and ideas. So we’re inquisitive, always learning and always questioning; the only way to keep moving forward

Impact

We endeavour to ensure that a positive impact is felt in all we do, by our audience and our clients, to the environment and our team.

Proactivity

We are driven to create positive change; requiring us to take initiative and lead with proactivity.

Accountability

At Raptor, everyone is empowered and encouraged to take responsibility and ownership of their work. We know that individual ownership fuels effective teamwork, but also trust, support, and transparency.

Sustainability Pledge

Our Pledge

Our mission is to champion students because we’re passionate about helping brands play a positive role in their culture. However, as part of this mission, we want to help build a brighter future for the next generation.

We have established an agency manifesto which pledges to reduce Greenhouse Gas emissions and reducing our waste footprint, within our organisation, and in the events we deliver.

We are proud member's of isla - and committed to tackling the climate crisis together within the events industry.
