Havas London

Havas London is Havas UK’s flagship creative agency. Our mission is to make a meaningful difference to the businesses, the brands and the lives of the people we work with. 

We’re the only major UK advertising agency to share a single building with every other specialist business in our network, all under a single P&L. Sitting within the Havas Village in Kings Cross affords us some clear advantages; none more so than our ability to build bespoke, multi-discipline teams around our clients, whatever their business need. 

These are not teams that are together on paper alone, but teams physically, culturally, logistically and financially aligned. This set-up, alongside our partnership with Vivendi and companies including Universal Music Group, Canal+, StudioCanal and Gameloft, allows us to complement – not replicate – our specialisms. 

In 2018, we became the first major advertising agency to achieve B Corporation certification – joining a global movement of pioneering companies using business as a force for good. To certify, we met rigorous standards of accountability, transparency and social and environmental performance, as well as legally placing impact on people and planet alongside profit in any decision we make.

Some of our work


It's a Wonderful Flight

Heathrow's second-ever Christmas advert reprises the 50-year-long love story of Doris and Edward Bair - the airport's much-loved teddy bears - first introduced in our hit 'Coming Home for Christmas' spot in 2016. Set to Petula Clark's I Couldn't Live Without Your Love and shot in Heathrow's now-defunct Terminal 1, it employs some charming historical touches - and generated millions of organic views in the process. 


Screen Eyes

This campaign revolves around a surreal yet eerily familiar TV spot from Black Mirror director Owen Harris, depicting a world where people have developed eyes the shape of screens. The metaphor, coupled with scenes of everyday people going about their everyday lives, connects an increasingly common ailment - dry eyes - with its cause: the technology we have become so attached to. 


Straight Up Skincare

In a shift away from a historical perception of the 60-year-old skincare brand being a remedy for extreme cases of dry skin only, this dynamic repositioning majors on its straightforward, uncomplicated, everyday credentials, through a spokesperson who proudly shares the same fuss-free ethos herself: British boxing icon, double Olympic Champion and E45-user, Nicola Adams OBE.


Let it Shine

Let it Shine is a joyous, unashamedly populist singalong to traditional gospel song This Little Light of Mine, with the lyrics playfully adapted to reflect some of the everyday objects that Finish helps to shine. A global campaign running for 12 months, it's our first work for the world's #1 auto dishwashing brand since winning the account back from Wieden + Kennedy in 2017.

Long Live the Local

Britain's Beer Alliance

Three UK pubs a day close their doors for good, in part due to cripplingly high beer tax - three times higher than the EU average. Long Live the Local celebrates the important role local pubs play in our community, our culture and our national identity - and calls on Government to cut planned increases in beer duty. Sign the petition at longlivethelocal.pub.


Every Lesson Shapes a Life

Our first work for the Department for Education centres around this heartwarming film following one girl's journey through the school system. The campaign highlights that teaching isn’t about what young people become, but who they become – and underscores the unparalleled role teachers play in shaping young people’s lives.
