Sutton is a cultural communications company promoting creativity across the globe. Our bespoke campaigns span the fields of visual arts, performing arts, design, craftsmanship and architecture. We work with inspiring individuals, museums, galleries, venues, fairs, biennales, festivals, cultural enterprises, corporate supporters of the arts and luxury brands.
A full-service agency integrating all aspects of communications, our approach is as results-driven and strategic as it is creative and considered. Our team combines international experience and reach with local knowledge and we have an established network of journalists, industry figures and opinion formers. Through our offices in London, Hong Kong and New York, we offer a seamless approach to projects, at home and abroad.
We put thought into the stories we tell, the platforms we use and the people we work with.

Sutton was the ideal extension to our in-house team for the launch of our new Galleries, which has enabled us to secure far more coverage than we could have achieved on our own. They were intelligent and responsive, utterly collaborative, and most of all, just great people to work with.Victoria Ribbans, Deputy Head of Communications, Westminster Abbey
In 2006, after several years at Tate, Haunch of Venison and the Saatchi Gallery, Calum Sutton founded his own consultancy from a small room in South London. Calum believed there was space for a different agency – one with an in-house approach, providing intelligent, bespoke campaigns, led by people knowledgeable and passionate about art, with a commitment to deliver. He set about building a likeminded team with ambitious ideas.
After two years the team moved into Somerset House, a cultural hub in the heart of London. In 2012, we opened an office in Hong Kong, and subsequently in New York in 2014.
While our capabilities have grown to meet changing needs, we still believe in the same things: passion, knowledge and networks.
