How we work
Connecting brands with people through research, strategy and compelling design
The secret behind a great marketing strategy is to do your homework. No two businesses are the same so it’s vital that we immerse ourselves in your world to fully understand how we can help you grow.
Understanding your business and its audience is vital in order to establish a long term marketing strategy that connects with people whilst producing results. During our conversations we’ll dig deep to discover how your business interacts with its customers, your goals for the future and gain a detailed insight into your target audience. From this information we can produce a user journey map that shines a light on where you should be marketing, when and how.
With a strategy in place we’ll explore a range of creative solutions for sharing your brand story and answering the questions your audience might have across various platforms from print to digital media. Initially we’ll present several concepts, each exploring a number of deliverables to give you a good overview of the flexibility of each campaign solution. We’ll then develop and refine your preferred design direction and produce a solid long-term marketing strategy.
We will work with you to produce cohesive campaigns across multiple channels including printed advertising and collateral as well as social, digital advertising and your website (amongst others). We can either produce all artwork for you for a set fee or on a retainer basis or create branded templates for your in-house marketing team.
Our talented team of designers and developers have over 15 years of experience delivering creative marketing campaigns across multiple sectors and disciplines. We regularly work with small businesses and non profits looking for ad-hoc support with single campaigns or with larger businesses looking for long term brand ambassadors on a retainer basis.
There’s nothing neutral about our feelings towards carbon. That’s why we’re dedicated to being carbon ‘positive’ forever. That means that any printed items produced by the studio will be offset at the end of the year at no extra cost to our customers. Find out more about our environmental policy here.

It’s important to consider what your target audience would respond well to rather than personal preference but if you don’t think any of the concepts fit the bill then we will discuss why this might be before revisiting the design phase and presenting further concepts for your consideration.
