Dave’s the marketing genius. Sam’s the lead-designer.
Together, we are a killer creative team.
We are a special kind of creative firm. Small and mighty. Two brains, two complementary skill sets, 30+ years industry experience, endless creative ideas.
The Awemous difference
We keep our client list short and our overheads low. You have our attention and dedication without waiting for days and our full-service thinking without any heart-stopping prices. There are no middle men, no account handlers, no long commutes, no swanky offices just our two creative brains working hard for your business in a place we’re happy to call home.
We have both spent time working at large agencies, boutique firms and as independent freelancers and know that the best creative work comes from us understanding your business, your market and your goals. It’s not just about pretty pictures. By combining our creative thinking with strategic reasoning we deliver so much more than design for designs sake. What we do fits into your business plans and gets real business results.
Our small size and extensive experience are our killer selling points. We have more resources, skills and experience that a freelancer but deliver a more personal and cost-effective service than an agency. We are the best of both worlds.
We love working with clients who have big ambitions, know the importance of good design and are as passionate as we are. We believe in working with you not for you, making each project a team effort – you bring the knowledge of your business and we bring our marketing and design expertise. We develop strong, trusting, long-term relationships with our clients and are proud of our track record helping many businesses like yours to increase market share, revenue and profits, and look good doing it.
How we can help
From strategy through creative to delivery we provide a full-service solution to your business design and marketing needs. We can help with creative ways to launch a new product, design a new brand identity, develop a strategic marketing plan to help grow your business or devise an advertising campaign. Or perhaps you need to keep your business at the forefront of customer’s minds through powerful websites, inspiring events, effective email marketing and beautiful catalogues, brochures and product literature.
Whatever your requirements we offer friendly, honest, imaginative marketing support and design services to help your business.
