Together we are stronger.

Our story.

At the heart of our business lies a strong ethos – a belief that we’re in this together and we’re all connected by the bonds of common humanity. It’s our take on the African philosophy of Ubuntu – to achieve ourselves we must share a little of ourselves with others, and care for those around us. We are united by the desire to do the right thing and act ethically in our business.

What this means for our clients is unparalleled honesty, fairness and transparency, in every interaction. We never ‘mark up’ our services, you pay what we pay – for printing, web development, advertising and anything else we source for you. Also, we don’t work on a retainer; you only pay for the work we deliver.

We live and breathe our values and try to do the best for our community and our world. Part of this commitment is our promise to deliver at least 30% of our work at a heavily discounted charity rate. Our team take pride in giving back pro-bono and helping out, many of us are trustees, volunteers, mentors and coaches in our spare time. We love where we live and want to make our wider community even better.
