Woolly Mammoth has been working with EF for over a year, helping to build and execute their media content strategy from scratch. We’ve worked on multiple video and audio projects, all designed to build EF’s global brand ambitions and move prospects into and through their funnel.

I've worked with Will for over a year now, and he has always been professional, creative and collaborative. Will has gone a long way to defining the aesthetic of our customer-facing brand. More than that though, he really understands our business and our customers' motivations.
