In the spirit of reflecting and having a good hard laugh, here’s some behind the scene images of what’s been happing in the studio in 2018 – enjoy!

2018 saw the launch of a new service – curated branding images. (Think of it like your own personalised custom stock images for your website and/or social media content.) We’ve heard your cries: no more generic lacklustre images; no more wasted hours searching for images only to be disappointed with how off-brand most images are. We work with you one-on-one to create a collection of unique, on-brand and targeted images specifically designed to resonate and connect with your buyers.
