A Different Model
A special type of person

Our people believe that business can be a force for good.

And they work with us to make that happen.

Our people believe that business can be a force for good and they come to work to make that happen.

We forego industry standards and have created a different, award-winning model in our culture and employment model.

We also surround ourselves with advisors who influence the shape of our business, and the work we do greatly.

Often described as ‘T-Shaped People’, these people bring with them stories, values and experiences that are critical to solving problems, developing ideas and driving change within organisations. 


Yes, our people are strategists, designers, researchers, journalists, photographers and technologists.

But they're also published authors, entrepreneurs, journalists, innovation, experience and change specialists.

Altogether they bring a breadth of expertise across our practice areas, and a world view from outside of their working lives.

In our day-to-day we create a flat-culture where our teams are both autonomous and encouraged to own the work they work on. 

We don't have juniors, mid-weights or seniors because we believe hierarchical nomencaltures aren't condusive to collaboration or innovation. 

Our people are very much their own people – and we like that.

They're leaders — creative leaders.

Would you like to work with us?

We're a little unusual. See, we like to get to know you first, what you care about, your values, your aspirations and experience.  We use freelance talent regularly — we on-board collaborators who are specialists in specific areas and we partner with organisations that align with our values and offer something that increases the value we offer to our clients.
