Our extensive range of services and strategic approach allows us to work with businesses and organisations of all shapes and sizes. We care about our clients goals and take the time to appreciate and understand the bigger picture.
Our approach to each project is never just about creating pretty pictures. Our briefs are detailed, our targets are set and we do our research. This is how we nail every brief, every time.
Since 2005 we’ve been inventing, reinventing and shaping businesses and brands to accelerate growth and build on their success. We never compromise on quality and strive to exceed clients expectations with every single design we produce - no matter how small or large the project.
On the flip side, we also don't take ourselves too seriously. We're not afraid to have a bit of fun and we love to laugh (at ourselves most of the time!) and feel it’s important to get the work/life balance right.
Ivory Design is as big, or as small, as your project or budget needs us to be. Our awesome creative team are a talented bunch, with everybody bringing their own unique skill set to the table. We are constantly evolving and learning new tricks and tips, to ensure we stay ‘ahead of the pack’.
Our business model is all about collaboration. This allows us to be flexible in our approach, building the best team for each project. Our key players featured below make up the core Ivory team, you’ll get to know them pretty quick when you become part of the Ivory family!
