Roughly half of Bravo’s work is for the corporate sector, which has been hit particularly hard by the unfavourable financial climate. The post house reports that budget cuts have, if anything, got even worse in the last few months and the last quarter has been “fairly quiet”. It is keeping expenditure to a minimum and “sitting tight” but md Tracey Bravo says “things are definitely starting to pick up now.”

Although known for its corporate work, the company’s roster of projects over the last year includes commercials for Expedia and Kenwood and Da Dick and Dom Dairies for the BBC. Bravo prides itself on using the most up-to-date and well maintained equipment and its planned investment over the coming year (recession pending) includes grading kit and a move into audio.
