Welcome to Havas
King's Cross

We are HKX

The Havas Village is a truly unique proposition – creative, media and health all under one roof. Our philosophy is to work together seamlessly, building teams around our clients’ needs not our own.
We operate with one vision, one shared way of working, and under one P&L.
Our Havas mission: To make a meaningful difference to the brands, the businesses and the lives of the people we work with.

Our people

We are a home for collaborators. At a time when the industry has fragmented across specialities and disciplines, we're proud to be truly integrated - physically and philosophically.

Meaningful Brands

Our proprietary research study Meaningful Brands (that spans 350,000 people worldwide, 31 markets, 22 industries and 1,800 brands each year) discovered that:


of brands could disappear and no one would care


of consumers think companies and brands should communicate honestly about their commitments and promises


of the content provided by brands is not meaningful to consumers

It's these key findings that have led to the creation of our Meaningful Brands strategic framework. A unique approach that has allowed us to understand that a brand’s value - how meaningful it is to its consumers - is defined by a combination of 'functional', 'personal' and 'collective' benefits.

Used across strategy and planning teams in all our agencies around the world, Meaningful Brands acts as the 'glue' in our integrated process and provides a common approach to strategic thinking to ensure we deliver meaningful business growth for our clients.
