remote creative talent

Creating engaging experiences since 2017.

Working with agencies for over 15 years, three independent and creative teams joined forces to provide a streamlined integrated approach to agency support.

The Story of Covert.

We started as freelancers and managers; after 25 years of industry experience Covert was born.

What happens when two freelancers get way too busy & meet up for beers?

They come to the only logical conclusion they could think of, they form a company. So on that fateful evening, in deep conversation and an IPA in hand, Covert was born into the shadows. Well, kind of… If you class the dimly lit ambience of a local pub as ‘the shadows’. Same thing.





Covert was born in 2017

When we established Covert, we brought a relentless freelance attitude of hustle, grind and deliver. We soon built a reputation of being ‘fixers’ on jobs that were left askew. Displaying unmatched agility, we continuously turned around projects that were left ticking away into the final moments like an episode of 24.




Creating household campaigns from bedrooms.

Covert began to earn its stripes in the shadows, as a unique white label agency support entity. Working with various leading UK agencies, we were deployed as the silent firepower behind multiple household campaigns and activations.

Charging forwards direct-to-brand.

We now stood as a full-service brand and agency partner. We kept our freelance hustle and heart and continued to grow our team with like minded creatives that would push the boundaries of our capabilities. Working Globally, from LA to Shanghai, we created VFX for a feature film, were featured in David Reviews and created custom digital experiences and toured them across Europe.

Our reputation may have brought us out of the shadows, but we still live by the same Covert mantra, of quietly working in the background to deliver the best creative for agencies and brands alike.

Okay yes it is another Simon, yes they’re all real and yes.. it does get confusing. This Simon is our coding/tech guru. He’s the man that turns our hairbrained, crackpot ideas into functioning works of digital art.
