Creative Partners

Managing and creative
partners

Together we have
over 40 years creative
industry experience.

A husband and wife team.
Nik makes sure the
studio runs smoothly, Carole takes
care of the bigger picture.

The food and
lifestyle markets are
our real passion.

We’ve gained a deep and
valued understanding of your
industry and marketplace.

We’re proud to head
up a growing independent
family business.

If you want a solid, safe and
trustworthy agency you can partner
for the long-term – that’s us.

Family and Friends

Extended family
and friends

We bring to the
table our extended
family of creative
and strategic talent.

People we’ve worked
with before, who share our values
and work the way we do.

A close-knit team of
people we trust,
that won’t let you down.

Even with tight deadlines
or requests for the impossible,
we are resourceful, resilient
and flexible.

We make the
process easier and less
stressful for you.

If there’s a way to make it
simpler or more straightforward, we’ll make it happen.

NO Suits

No suits and
no-nonsense

Your budget
goes on what you need,
not expensive
account handlers.

We don’t believe in
adding unnecessary layers
or extra padding.

Talk directly to
partners and designers,
we’re always at the
end of the phone or email.

The people working on your
account are the best people to
deal with it.

We’re straight-talking,
honest people,
that don’t try to blind
you with science.

Our industry is full of people who
can talk it up, but can’t
back it up. We’re not interested in
going around in circles
so we can charge you more.

Good Design

Good design
is good business

It can make
everyone buy into
your brand.

We’ve seen how it can open doors,
change people’s perceptions
and give sales teams confidence
and pride to sell.

Good design can
speak for you, when
you’re not there.

It can be eloquent, charming
and persuasive and often
much more helpful than the
staff in-store!

Strong brands are
about consistency and
strength of message.

We’ve built brands
from scratch and worked with
long-established brands
and know exactly how to grow,
nurture and protect them.

Small Team

Small team with big
partnerships

We run our business
nimbly and responsibly.

Our biggest and most important
expense is our team.

We may be small,
but big companies have
confidence in us.

So you can too!
It’s the quality of our work
that draws clients to us
and keeps them coming back.

We’re all about
big relationships

It’s for keeps.
It’s not about one project,
but forging a
lasting partnership.

Working Together

You and us working
well together

We bring
something different
to the table.

Something that challenges,
stands out and will
ultimately help you to
sell more.

A refreshingly
different
way of working.

Where client relationships
are at the heart
of everything we do.

That’s design as it
should be...
Distinctive, easy,
simple, inspired,
good and now.
