About Creative Marketing

Our Story

Creative Marketing, established in 1996, is an independent marketing agency with an office in Hawke’s Bay. We provide industry-leading marketing, brand, web and design solutions to clients across New Zealand. Distance is no barrier - wherever you are, we'll come to you.

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 clients grow from a fledgling idea, and have provided long-established brands with fresh, innovative solutions to help them remain relevant and engaged.

Creative Marketing is ready to tackle your project with our trademark flair, loyalty and enthusiasm.

Creative Marketing web design PR building


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.

Our Philosophy

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:

  1. Be the best
  2. We deliver
  3. Work with passion
  4. Be straight up
  5. Together we're strong

Meet The Team

We’re a small but perfectly formed team (if we say so ourselves!) We run a tight ship so our clients are not burdened with unproductive staff. This does not mean we are under resourced; our professional and dedicated staff provide top quality work for our day-to-day operations and we contract in specialist resources as needed.

Not For Profit

We specialise in working with not for profits.

Over the past 10 years we’ve built up a wealth of knowledge and experience working with national not for profit + member organisations across New Zealand, in order for them to remain relevant and thrive.

We believe there is a real need to provide specialist marketing knowledge in this area, as not-for-profits are facing increasing challenges and need to grow + remain relevant now more than ever. Our innovative, cost-effective marketing and website solutions will add long-term value to your organisation.

We define not for profits as charities, member/industry organisations, professional societies, independent schools, trusts + foundations etc. - basically any organisation that uses its revenues to further achieve its purpose or mission, rather than distributing profits to shareholders.
