The Cambridge Admissions Office has worked with Contra on projects which form part of a wider initiative to shift perceptions about the University. I found Contra to be professional, responsive to brief, creative and flexible, with a knack for securing strong performances from their subjects. Above all they have been dedicated to producing the best possible material for us, and have delivered compelling visual treatments.
