Creative Marketing, established in 1996, is an independent marketing agency with real business smarts. Based in Hastings, Hawke’s Bay, we have clients across the country and world. Distance is no barrier - wherever you are, we'll come to you.
Nothing is more exciting to us than taking a new (or established) concept and turning it into a viable, successful enterprise. We bring together our people working in strategy, design and digital to share insights and formulate strategies that will make your business or organisation grow.
We’ve helped others grow from a fledgling idea to a successful company – or given their established business the kick in the pants it needs. No matter whether you're a startup, challenger, or brand leader we’ll work with you to get results.
We’ll work hard to build loyal relationships for the long term – we believe this achieves better results than short term flings.
At Creative we're straight up about everything we do and that extends to our charging. We have an in-house system that tracks the time our people spend on projects. Changes to projects' scope and budgets may incur additional costs. Margins are added to all external supplier costs to cover management time and our responsibility to quality control work.
Initial meetings are free of charge but from that point on, any work undertaken is chargeable, even if the work is not used. We also charge project management fees and take a commission on any media booked through us.
We would be pleased to offer you a special contract rate in the form of a written agreement if you commit your marketing budget to us exclusively. That means we'll need you to sign on a dotted line and say Creative Marketing are awesome.

We’re all about building an open and honest relationship with you to deliver projects that help achieve your business goals. Our clients love the way we work and we know you will too. Here’s our five main philosophies in a nutshell:
“The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle.” - Steve JobsWe love creating, designing and delivering innovative solutions that work. It’s as simple as that.
Heading up the Creative crew, Julia is the first point of contact for Creative clients and she sticks with them all the way through each and every project.
Janine is effectively Creative's Girl Friday, supporting the whole operation including the Account Director, the techie team and the graphic designers.
Warren is a design superstar with particular emphasis on beautiful typography (using great fonts in the right place at the right time for the right clients).
Coming from a design background, Jess is equally proficient developing front-end functionality as she is building back-end wizardry into Creative's clients' websites.
Fiona is our super organised inhouse number cruncher. As a Chartered Accountant she balances the book, sorts the files and pays the bills.
Very sweet and slightly dumb, she was the first addition to Janine and her husband's family.

We offer an initial 1-2 hour workshop session in order for us to understand the scope of your project, generate innovative ideas that meet the needs of your customers and business, and formulate a plan to move forward.
It’s a chance for you to sound us out, get a feel for how we work, and walk away fired up with a fresh perspective on your project. With this understanding of your project we'll be able to offer you our initial ideas and a ball park cost.
We’re confident you’ll see value in the way we work which is why we offer this no obligation experience.
