“The Biggest Publishing Company You’ve Never Heard Of!”


Don’t take our word for it. It’s how Fast Company described SJR’s pioneering role in content marketing. Today with unmatched depth of talent, from strategists to journalists to multimedia creatives, and top clients across consumer, finance, energy, pharma, tech and more, we are the industry leader.


Group SJR was founded in 2004 and acquired by WPP in 2013 since which it has grown rapidly, expanding from New York and Los Angeles to San Francisco, London, Toronto, Mexico City, Paris and Sydney, now counting a staff of around 200 global strategists, writers, designers, multimedia producers, and developers.


Group SJR and JWT partnered to launch Colloquial in 2015 which has grown phenomenally by leveraging SJR’s business model and JWT’s brand expertise and client base.


Colloquial lives at the intersection of advertising, publishing and public relations, with storytelling and creativity at its core. We turn brands into publishers as part of their marketing and communications mix. It is a joint venture of J. Walter Thompson, the world’s best-known communications brand, and Group SJR, “the biggest publishing company you’ve never heard of”, and within the WPP family.


In London, the combined SJR and Colloquial business has boomed from a staff of one to 30 with several million in revenues and healthy margins in less than 3 years, and is the hub from which expansion into EMEA is managed while also continuing to develop significant UK growth.
