We create marketing with impact.

With decades of industry experience behind us, every member of the Notch team contributes to the wealth of expertise we have gained across the Life Science, Pharmaceutical, Commercial and Chemical Markets. Our team comprises a combination of creative, scientific, and marketing minds, joined together with a shared common goal: to create science marketing with a more significant impact.

Our Story

It was back in 2011 that our founder, Dr. Kate Whelen, had a vision to create a marketing agency that would challenge the B2B Life Science marketing world—a world dominated by clichéd stock imagery and predictable blue and white branding.

Today, Notch has grown and evolved into a leading marketing agency that collaborates with some of the world’s most prominent and highly respected chemical, pharmaceutical, and niche biotech organisations.

“We chose to name our agency after ‘the notch signalling pathway’ which plays a major role in the regulation of embryonic development. In biology, Notch is vital for ensuring the right message gets to the right place at the right time, in the right amounts. We believe that’s true in the business world too, where Notch Communications helps businesses thrive.”
