Let’s be Friends
We care about our clients and immerse ourselves in your project. From passionate entrepreneurs to established organisations, we bring creativity, credibility and strategy to your visual identity.
Because of the time and energy we invest into each project, we only work on a handful of brand identity projects each year. We like to get really involved and know our clients intimately – after all, we’re Friends, right?
We design beautifully crafted brands for businesses ready to take on the world! Our offering.
We always start with strategy because good strategy underpins all that we do. Before you invest in creative services we recommend spending time clarifying, uncovering and creating from a place of purpose.
A one hour strategy session infused with creativity and expert counsel (over the phone/Zoom) to connect and see if we have chemistry over a cuppa. Ask us anything, soak up our wisdom and work on your strategy simultaneously. An energised entry to kick-starting a creative conversation.
Walk with Us
Getting out in nature opens the mind and encourages creativity. Our Walk with Us offering is a nurturing experience that explores the plans for your business. Here we hold space for your hopes and dreams – listening, unlocking and allowing space for your vision to unfold. Coastal or woodland (cake is included, of course!)

The day is followed up with a beautifully designed PDF to summarise the experience.
