If you are looking to re-brand your business, evolve and strengthen an existing brand, or build an entirely new brand from scratch, we have the insight, expertise and experience to deliver a comprehensive visual identity suite that is iconic, flexible, and a natural extension of the vision, values and foundation of your business.

Logo Design

A well-designed logo authentically brings your brand vision and values to life whilst also building trust and connection with your audience.

Brand Graphics

Brand Graphics are often the building blocks of template design, and expand the your toolkit for storytelling through your visual identity.

Typography

Typography is the way in which fonts are used to shaping your brand’s voice and personality. They must take into account a myriad of use cases, including print and digital applications, and large and small sizes.

Colours

A company’s colour palette brings life and expression to a brand. A palette includes background colours and accent colours, and provides guidance on how to combine them together and best use scenarios.

Print

In a digital world, well-produced printed material and collateral stands out and leaves an impression. Gone are the days of mass-production and disposable materials — print collateral today is all about enhancing the message, underscoring your brand values, and showcasing your business in the best possible way.

Postcards and Flyers

Posters and flyers are perfect for when you need something physical to hand to people, or have a physical presence an event or conference. Even around the office, posters can help celebrate the brand vision and values in a fun and engaging way.

Booklets and Prospectus

When your marketing requires a luxurious touch, and something more permanent and meaningful than an email or flyer, a beautifully presented book or prospectus can leave a memorable impression, whilst allowing room for a deeper level of information.

Brand Templates

Brand templates enable staff and employees to easily access and create frequently used documents and files whilst ensuring the design and visual identity is cohesive and on-message.

Special Events

Special events often require a whole host of unique collateral, including invitations, tickets, posters, programs, location maps etc — and of course unique event branding.

Websites

A vibrant, dynamic and easy to use website is at the core of any contemporary marketing plan. It underscores your entire digital presence, and should act as the one-source-of-truth for accurate information on your business and products. A website is also like a plant — it needs to be watered and nurtured in order to thrive and grow. We help you maintain your website and evolve it over time as your business naturally grows and expands too.

Website Design

We craft websites that provide information in a compelling and engaging way, whilst being a natural extension of your brand. We help you identify and define the structure and functionality that’s right for you, with hosting and support that’s always on.

Online Stores

Opening an online store requires a greater level of complexity and functionality. We help simplify the process, managing every stage from product photography to database management, transactions and payment to shipping and tracking.

Social Media Profiles

Customising your Social Media profiles can take greater advantage of features and tools, and make engaging with your audience even more powerful.

Updates and Maintenance

Websites naturally change and evolve over time, just as your business does. It is essential that your website remains accurate and up-to-date at all times.

Email Marketing

One of the most valuable marketing tools for any business is an email community built on permission marketing and value-driven content. Our services include design, content development, and list management.

Content

Content is arguably the single most important element in a communications strategy. It is the core and substance of your message, and your greatest ambassador to expand influence and engage an audience. A lot of energy and expense is invested in putting a spotlight on your website, social media and marketing materials — we’re here to make sure that time and investment is worthwhile with clear, meaningful and useful content.

Articles & Blog Posts

We have extensive experience in writing clear and engaging articles, blog posts, emails, profiles, micro-copy, metadata, descriptions — anything that involves words. We also offer expert editing and proof-reading, as well as co-writing services.

Graphics & Illustration

Content can often be enhanced and brought to life by the right graphic or illustration, used to anchor a message and provide warmth and personality. Illustration that is exclusively yours becomes an invaluable extension of your visual identity.

Videos

Whether used as a feature video, or short clips used in Social Media stories, video is a fantastic way to engage an audience and inspire your community.

Photography

If a photograph speaks a thousand words, it’s important to make sure those words speak exactly the right message for your brand and business.

Presentations

Whether presenting to clients or delivering a keynote address, presentation design and storytelling can make all the difference. We are experts in not only designing powerful slides for maximum impact, but in shaping the story and narrative of the presentation, helping provide focus and clarity for your content, and coaching the delivery of the presentation as well.

Slide Design

You deserve a slide-deck that matches your professionalism, visual identity and authority in your subject matter. We craft slides that are both a natural extension of your brand, and focused on delivering your content as clearly and memorable as possible.

Custom Graphics

Once the overall design is in place, specific slides need memorable graphics. Whether it is through illustration, infographics or diagrams, we can create and source the graphics that will make your message as powerful as possible.

Storyboard Sessions

The structure and sequence of your presentation is vital — often it is the key difference between average and exceptional. We facilitate the process of workshopping and sequencing your presentation to have a natural flow and rhythm for storytelling.

Delivery Coach

Our fundamental belief for presentations is that nothing matters more than the way your presentation is delivered. We are experts in coaching body-language, eye contact, use of voice and language, and how to make the most of the stage.

Corporate Gifts

Strong, authentic, meaningful connections are the currency of business-to-business relationships, and standing out is becoming increasingly difficult. We can assist with sourcing and creating unique cards and gifts that will present your business personally, professionally, and act as a natural extension of your brand.

Branded Greeting Cards

Make your corporate correspondence more personal with custom designed thank you cards, holiday cards, birthday cards and more — all elegantly branded with your logo and visual style.
