What we do

We're more than just another regular design consultancy

We don’t just create websites and logos that look like everyone else’s using predesigned templates and clip-art and then cut and run, leaving you to fend for yourself once the job is done.

We build and create bespoke creative websites, logos, brands, and marketing solutions that resonate with your customers and your brand values while maintaining ongoing support for small to medium businesses that want to grow and stand out from the crowd. All this and more backed by over 30 years of big advertising and design agency experience.

So we listen and look for the spark that will engage your customers and ignite your brand to a whole new level of “WOW, I didn’t expect that!”

Why? …Because when you succeed, so do we. So you can be damn sure that we’ll work hard to ensure you get where you want to go.

Who we work with

When little sparks fly unstoppable raging fires begin

We’ve gone from working with big brands and big agencies to working with little businesses who want to be big brands.

We like nothing more than working with small to medium sized businesses and start-ups, using our big brand experience to help you tell your story, grow your businesses, launch, position and build your brand to help create awareness, and discover new opportunities that will build engaging and enduring relationships between you, your existing customers and your future customers.

The next level

It only takes one bright spark to ignite a big fire

Developing your marketing or brand strategy

Oh boy, do we love starting fires because once lit, they’re hard to stop. So when you’re ready to really ignite your business and take it to the next level, then we’re here and ready to light your fire. Together, we’ll find the little spark that’ll ignite your brand and make it a beacon to draw your crowd.

Be a firestarter, twisted firestarter!

Two bright sparks

Our story starts here...

Two people with very different skills sets; one in creative marketing, brand strategy, print and digital, and the other one in sales. And like our customers, we both have a burning passion for creativity, building brands, and creating the unexpected to help small and medium-sized businesses tell their stories and grow their businesses.

Why? Well frankly, we find it more interesting and more rewarding for everyone when we work directly with small to medium-sized businesses and the people who know and love their businesses and customers better than anyone else and who are just as passionate as us to see it grow.
