Smarter marketing with psychology


Turbocharge your brand, strategy and results with the 
UK’s first psychology-led agency

Conventional marketing strategies simply don’t cut it anymore. Today’s brands need psychology on their side to convert customers. 

While many agencies claim to use psychology, most can only pay lip service to it. 

Cognition is different. We have all the scientific and creative talent you need in one place. 

We are the only UK agency to have our own Scientific Board composed of psychologists, behavioural scientists and neuroscientists. When their expertise meets the talents of our marketers, the results are profound.
