Hogarth Davies Lloyd

Hogarth Davies Lloyd is an executive search firm specialising in international banking and finance, with offices in London, Stockholm, Dubai and Tokyo. When the firm was building its global offer, it asked Circle to create a new corporate identity that could reflect its ambitions, followed by a set of communication tools to express the brand and market the firm to the world. The tools we created – marketing literature, recruitment literature and a global website, plus the interior design of HDL’s London office – have helped the firm shift its reputation dramatically. Once a small boutique London-based recruitment company relying heavily on the profile of its three founder members, it is now seen as a global firm with a team of expert consultants, perfectly positioned to attract the best people for international senior positions.

“Circle always exceeds our expectations. They really understand our brand and how to communicate it to our key audiences.” James Hogarth, Guy Davies and Nick Lloyd.
