Impero is a creative digital and social agency based in London. We lead with strategy, disrupt category conventions and think ‘consumer first.’ We specialise in brands who have lost their way and need some help to be brought into the foreground again. For whatever reason, some brands are forgotten about- these are the brands we care about. Call us nostalgic, or sentimental, or both. These are the types of brands that we get most excited about. These are the brands that our proprietary strategies and methods work best for. It’s what we’re good at, it’s what we know, it’s what we love – we make tired brands famous again.



Michael Scantlebury

Founder and Creative Director

In 2009 Michael founded award winning agency Impero as an innovative, risk taking, digital and creative agency. Originally from New Zealand he created his first online start up as a teenager; New Zealand’s largest online dining guide ‘Menus’ and later Australasia’s most visited movie publication ‘Flicks’ , both of which were acquired before Michael set up Impero. First founded in London, Impero has now expanded into Latin America with its second office in Buenos Aires.
