Who We Are

We've been changing behaviours for more than 18 years, but time hasn't changed us.
Who We Are
From day one, Diva has been delivering highly effective campaigns that make people stop, listen and take action. Agendas shift and policies evolve, but we’ve been ever-present in the public sector, helping local and national authorities alike communicate their most important messages.

We are diva

We’ve grown over time and we continue to get bigger with more success. We work on national campaigns, winning awards and earning recognition as market leaders. But we’ve never lost our identity as an ethical company working hard to exceed clients’ expectations and produce the very best campaigns.

Diva’s marketing experts, designers and developers use their unique talents to make a real difference to real lives and real communities. A fully integrated agency, we do everything from producing websites, apps and videos to conducting research, writing strategies and designing printed materials.

Whatever the project, our dynamic team brings passion to everything it does, every single day.
