Our Thinking

It’s intelligent thinking

Our story began in a very modest way in 1992

With a combination of inspiration, determination and a state-of-the-art Apple Mac Classic with an impressive nine inch mono monitor – how things have changed!

Today we are a growing team of skilled designers and professionals, with significant resources at our disposal. Our aims are broadly the same as they were when we started, creating long term, trusting relationships with clients which focus on reliable and honest delivery of creative yet appropriate solutions. Some of our clients have been with us from the start and we have become an integral part of their business, which we believe is testament to our approach.

We have always had a forward looking approach to business and especially embracing new technology, we continue to invest in technology to ensure we are prepared for the demands of a global, 24-hour way of doing business.

We’re proud of the intelligent processes that we apply. We’re not just creative, we’re intelligent too, and apply that to everything we do.

Whatever the project our approach remains the same; to be creative, to be appropriate, to use technology to best advantage and to complete projects on-time and within budget.

It’s not just our creative output that is of the highest standards, we believe that how we go about business is important too, our values lie at the core of our business and we believe that they make us good people to work with.

This is how it all happens…


Ask Questions

As a design agency, we work with a whole portfolio of clients at any one time and it is imperative that we understand the individual requirements and desires of those clients.  We ask a lot of questions to fully understand the needs of you and your business and we encourage you to ask question too.

Understand the issues

In an ideal world, there would be no issues, no hurdles to overcome, but realistically challenges do arise.  The convenience of working with a marketing and design agency is that with our experience comes an understanding of the possibilities and limitations so we can steer project to avoid these possible inconveniences.  Therefore saving time and saving you money.

Plan a Solution

Once we thoroughly understand the project we are undertaking we start to plan solutions.  One of the advantages of working with a marketing agency is that we have experience of a portfolio of marketing methods bringing knowledge and expertise to your project solutions.

Get Creative

Working with us is fun, exciting and eye-opening.  We help clients express the layers of their business in a fresh and engaging manner.  This involves client interaction and fresh thinking.  Let us help you and present your company’s best side to the world.

Deliver results

Every business wants a return on their investments and we are always focussed on applying this to the solutions we provide.  We are a creative marketing agency that not only ‘makes things look pretty’ we get results.

Provide best value

We ask questions to understand your values, we plan solutions to best deliver the results you want, we understand the possible issues saving you money and time and we wrap this all up in what we do best: result driven creative marketing.
