Year of the Ox 2021
It’s no coincidence Noble Ox was established in the Year of the Ox.
A trip to Singapore in early 2009, where New Year preparations were in full swing, helped inspire my new venture. A greyhound in mid-1980’s Lancashire also inspired the name, but that’s a story for another time!
Year of the Ox 2009
Back in 2009, recession was all around and redundancy was coming my way. It was time for change, time to take a risk and start my own business. I wanted to consolidate my years of brand marketing and project management experience and put it to good use. I also wanted to keep things simple, never over-promise and build a reputation on trust and good service.
In traditional Chinese astrology, those born in the year of the Ox are considered as strong, reliable, fair and conscientious. Pragmatic and down-to-earth, they inspire confidence in others and can be trusted.
These attributes are all fine credentials for a marketing agency determined to position itself as the antidote to marketing consultants. Our creative instinct is grounded in the down-to-earth warmth and integrity of the Noble Ox approach. The clue is in the name, for those who look closely!
The Joy of Ox
It took time to define and create Noble Ox. It’s a strong brand that continues to work hard, as all good brands should. It reflects and reinforces our mission to help our clients create the same.
The joy of Ox is in the diversity of clients we attract. Over the years, Noble Ox has helped a whole range of organisations to define and present themselves, creating Brand Identities and delivering Content and Digital Marketing services. Alongside, we’ve developed our popular Noble Ox Training and Mentoring for start-ups and established businesses alike.
Year of the Ox 2021
Twelve years on, it’s the Year of the Ox once more and the Noble Ox track record is something to be proud of. We have a reputation for helping organisations define, position and present themselves with confidence and humanity. In turn, we attract clients driven by the desire to deliver excellence and connect with target audiences in a meaningful way.
To date, highlights include our work supporting people and the planet. From individual health and wellbeing, arts and culture to environmental education, social enterprise and the renewable energy and low carbon sectors.
Our commitment to help our clients define, prioritise and communicate effectively is stronger than ever.
For any organisation, a trusted reputation with excellent credentials is important. For Noble Ox, it’s essential. The majority of our work still comes through referral and recommendation. Just how we like it!
As with all good brands, we have a good story to tell. We’d love to help you tell yours.
Meanwhile, we wish you a happy and prosperous 2021.
All the best
