About

Istoria Group

We’re part of a close-knit family

Tiny Spark are part of the Istoria Group, who are champions of sustainability. Our sister business Ignition are the 2020 winners of The Queen’s Award for Enterprise for Sustainable Development and holder of several ISO standards. The Group also incorporates an Incubator Hub, supporting promising small businesses in their growth and direction, so it’s part of our culture to gravitate towards more meaningful ways of doing business.

We love to solve business problems by understanding what customers think, feel and do. Our creativity, innovation and technical excellence allow us to provide an engaging and cost-effective way to deliver key messages and content to your audience.

It’s hugely important to us to build close relationships with our clients. We want to forge a partnership that fosters collaboration and enables creativity.

We question

We need to get to know you (and your audience). That means a lot of questions and poking around to ensure we feel like we’re part of your team so we understand what you need.

We hypothesise

Then it’s time to throw some ideas around and work out what kind of solution can make a difference to you and your audience.

We colaborate

Will our ideas work? That’s where we work with you to ensure no stone is left unturned. That might mean working directly with you, an IT team or your customers.

We test

There’s nothing like evidence to prove we’re on the right track, so prototyping and testing means hitting the nail on the head is much more likely.

We create

Now it’s time to get to work and create what we’ve all been working so hard towards. Heads down, our experts deliver time and time again.

We measure

When it’s time to look at the results, we’ll always try and look forward, rather than back – how do we improve and add value moving forwards?

Purposeful digital engagement

Purpose. People. Profit.

There are many companies whose purpose is to do amazing things and we want to help them on their quest. We are serious about making a difference, so we seek to work with purpose-driven brands who value as we do the importance of data, insights, and continual learning to create a positive impact on customers, staff, businesses and the wider society.
