innovative and creative

innovative and creative

Chinese proverb “Yi quan fei yinh, bai quan fei sheng”, one dog snarls at a shadow; a hundred howl at it’s bark. There is little gained by following a trend! To stand out from the crowd, one must differentiate one's self. It pays to be innovative and creative!

We endeavour to produce better outcomes by producing, practical yet creative and innovative product outcomes. We do this by investing in creative resources and through product innovation. Our goal is to produce product specifications which have genuine creative, innovative, ecological and quality based elements

product concepts

product concepts

Materialising and quantifying marketing ideas / messages into product concepts is one of the most rewarding things we get to do. We take a significant amount of care and allocate a large amount of time to selecting items that we present to clients. We do this through our creative resources, drawing on marketing history from other clients, reviewing product data trends and drawing on new product pools. To be selected a product needs to have the following characteristics:
  • genuinely connect with the target audience (preferably verified historically from other parties);
  • meets precisely and completely the marketing objectives;
  • has the best possible ecological and quality credentials;
  • has appropriate innovative and creative merit; and
  • has the most suitable material and manufacturing pedigree given our customer’s price constraints.
