Clearcut Sound Rebrands As Little Things

Soho Sound House Clearcut Sound Studios Rebrands to Little Things

The employee-owned sound studio’s new name reflects its small size, industry prowess and dedication to paying attention to the littlest of details

Long-established sound engineering, post-production and voice recording studio Clearcut Sound Studios Limited has rebranded as Little Things.

After 30 successful years as Clearcut Sound Studios, the team behind the operation felt that now was the perfect time for the sound house to refresh its brand identity. Moving away from its early 90s roots, and shifting to celebrate - and communicate - the small, staunchly independent brand they have developed since becoming the first employee-owned UK studio of its kind in 2012.

Currently made up of just seven staff, Little Things has consistently used its small size as a competitive advantage. From their acoustically-treated studios boasting industry-leading equipment, the team have worked on lauded campaigns for the nation’s most beloved brands.

Collaborating with advertising giants including adam&eveDDB, Ogilvy, VCCP, and M&C Saatchi, in-house creative departments for brands such as Marks and Spencer, and sharing their expertise to the BBC and Netflix, the studio’s impressive body of work has, and will continue to be, heard in every UK household and beyond.

Company co-owner and senior sound designer James Clark said, “With 12 creative and successful years of employee ownership behind us, it is time for Clearcut Sound to be reborn as the more befitting Little Things. Since taking charge in 2012, a name change has always been talked about internally. Now, with such a super-weird spell of self-discovery behind us, the time is right. We are small and that is our strength.”

He added, “We are very proud of our history as Clearcut Sound and take solace in knowing it's being granted eternal life and will live on in all those online directories that we can’t seem to update.”

Managing Director Chris Wrigglesworth commended, “It’s been an incredibly daunting task renaming our company with its rich history and reputation, and we’ve not taken it lightly. But the whole team has seen the company change over the last ten years. We’ve never been more passionate about making great sound with our clients. It’s no surprise, and no mean feat, that we’ve just had our most successful year as employee owners. So, there’s no better time to harness this momentum and position our company for the future.”

“The team at Little Things are the masters of their own destiny. It has been a conscious decision to stay small, nimble, personal. All things which allow us to hone our craft whilst working with our clients closely, becoming trusted partners rather than just another supplier. Little Things is a testament to that. We’re little, but we also focus on the little things, the small details from which great things emerge.”
