Welcome to the
Home of Connected Brands
Situated on Level 3 of the WPP Sea Containers campus and covering over 300m², the Home of Connected Brands is a physical manifestation of our agency belief that connected brands are more powerful brands. With a continuous explosion of channels, spaces and places where brands can now show up, our space helps clients reimagine what it takes to build successful brands today through best-in-class brand, customer and creative commerce experiences.
“It's fantastic and has given me food for thought on how we structure and build integrated marketing communications.”
— David Heaney, Head of Integrated Marketing Communications at Diageo
Let's delve deeper!
The Home of Connected Brands is split into six different spaces —
each crafted to ignite the imagination of our people and client partners.
Engage with real-time feeds where people interact with each other and/or brands — where clients can tap into the power of influence and culture.
Emotion, gender, age determination data and anamorphic technology transform conversations into warm, personalized and relevant experiences.
The next generation of interactive technology gamifies the quick-serve restaurant experience — a Magic Mirror augments food ordering while an AI delivery robot delivers with a smile.
A bit of fun breaks down new technology barriers for brands. An interactive touch-table, webAR, holograms, social vending, and metaverse experiences connect people with brands through cutting-edge innovation.
From socially connected smart glasses to personalized cleaning and live shopping experiences, brands can reach people in their homes through devices from smart TVs to gaming consoles.
A full 3D floor-to-ceiling sensory experience capable of recreating more than 150 physical and virtual retail environments where brands can prototype and test creative commerce ideas prior to production.
“It's such an impressive facility and honestly blew my mind away. The potential and value of the space is massive!”
— Ian Hepburn, Marketing Director for UK & Ireland at Evergreen Garden Care

Expertly crafted, this space is designed to drive shopper engagement and conversion.
“This facility is incredible. My experience here has opened up so many opportunities and has prompted me to think about what more we can do.”
— Helen Jeremiah, Vice President AND Marketing Director AT Boots
