Who we are


Who we are

Hello. We are The Kite Factory.

We create ideas and let them take flight. While they’re soaring, our data driven insights keep us tightly anchored to the real world. Highly creative media solutions that deliver measurable results. Ideas rooted in rigour. There’s nothing better. And because we’re independent, we have the freedom to create the right idea for each client, every time.


What we do

Ideas that deliver.

Ideas are nice, but until you can prove they work they’re about as useful as a chocolate tea pot. Our heritage in performance media planning & buying means we have a natural drive to deliver measurable outcomes. We obsess over actionable insight and create bespoke media solutions that deliver against our clients’ business challenges.


How we do it

Our brilliant people.

Our people truly care about going above and beyond for our clients. We also believe good ideas come from everyone. From front of house to finance, we live and breathe our values to be boldly curious, to surprise and to be proactive. Collectively we generate excellent thinking and create ideas that make a difference.



Come meet the people that make it all possible

Here’s just a handful of the personalities, perspectives and passions that makes us who we are.
