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


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.


Christmas 2018

The third in our series of popular Christmas ads for Heathrow reprises the 50-year love story of Doris and Edward, the Heathrow Bears – this time travelling home for Christmas from sunny Florida. Since being introduced in 2016, the airport’s much-loved teddy bear couple have generated millions of organic views, been featured on daytime TV and have become one of the UK’s most popular and anticipated festive fixtures.


Made Local

Made Local is Carling's multi-million-pound campaign which is championing and supporting those people who are making things happen in their hometown – just like Carling, proudly brewed by local people in its historic home of Burton-on-Trent. Carling’s Made Local Fund will invest in community projects over the next three years, while a series of documentaries tell the stories of people ‘making it’ where they’re from.

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 in 2018, the campaign called upon the Government to cut planned increases in beer duty. The result – a Government volte-face – speaks for itself. This round is on us.



Does any other food span as many cultures, nationalities, communities and generations as naturally as rice? Our campaign for Tilda proudly celebrates the feeling of immense pleasure when food meets culture. A vibrant celebration of all the cultures of the UK, Tildalicious brings to life the culinary journey of different Tilda rice grains through the hands of real-life cooks from all over the world, via their UK kitchens


Ladies, Let's Lube

No one should have to put up with uncomfortable sex – and yet discomfort during sex is a familiar feeling for many women. This campaign aims to challenge some of the misconceptions around female sexual discomfort and normalises the use of a simple solution – lubrication. Our film celebrates women pushing against archaic attitudes to their bodies, choices and equal rights, then questions – given this – why women still put up with something like uncomfortable sex.
