More about us

Hello.

We are Carat.

Founded over 50 years ago as the world’s first media agency, Carat is an award-winning media and content agency, passionately committed to understanding our clients and their customers - and deeply humbled by the enormous responsibility that comes with it.


Our work is inspired by human understanding.

In this time of enormous change where media is more important than ever before, people are longing for humanity - for real connection, for truth and for what binds us together.

In this moment, our commitment is clear.  What can we do to build deeper relationships through real human understanding?
