but impressive

The little agency that really performs.


We’re small but we do big things.

Our clients range from start-ups to multi-nationals and our work covers branding and identity design, marketing, advertising and packaging.

And they all come to us for the same reasons:

  • great creative solutions that really work
  • value for money
  • and a stress-free project

We make sure that you are completely happy with your design solution and also with the design process.

Happy clients, happy us.


Don’t take our word for it, this is what our clients say:

"Guru offers us a unique, professional and relaxed client relationship which really suits the way we work perfectly."
Exhibitions Manager, New Zealand Olympic Committee
"Guru’s work covered the entire look and feel of our new brand, from identity, shop fitout, signage, staff uniforms to advertising and everything in between. We found the Guru team very helpful, inclusive and iterative, nothing was too much trouble. The end result is that we are very happy."
Director, Preston Master Butchers
"To say that we are impressed seems decidedly inadequate. Our expectations have been exceeded in every way. Guru’s creative genius has been instrumental in rebranding our business with a strong retail image. The results - a substantial increase in business."
Director, The Home Loan Shop


case study


A good test of re-branding is if it can withstand the test of time. Our re-branding of Moore Wilson was completed in 1999 and has not aged at all. It still reflects the company’s core value: fresh innovation. Comprehensive and flexible brand guidelines have enabled Moore Wilson to keep the brand on track..

"Sometimes re-branding a business can become incredibly complicated as ego and opinion get in the way of good judgement. Working with Guru we were able to achieve a great result with a minimum of fuss. Guru’s solution was built on clear thinking and high graphic standards"
Marketing Manager, Moore Wilson & Co


case study


Packaging is your last and best opportunity to make a sale.

We were asked to launch this new product. It sold out in supermakets in the first week, far exceeded the client’s initial forecasts. It did so well that it is now available in Australia, Korea, Taiwan, the UK and the USA, with other markets to soon follow.

We handled naming and brand strategy, bottle design, 3D prototyping, packaging design, below the line marketing and B2B material through to the website design, and launch material. We even pioneered a new type of PET bottling material.



case study


These two products are identical — chicken jerky from the same factory.

Wanpy had been in the marketplace for 5 years when Yours Droolly launched the same treat in our new look.

They were soon outselling Wanpyby 7–1. Within two years Wanpy had quit the market. That’s not luck, that’s good packaging.

"The brand strategy and brand architecture are first class and working their socks off"
CEO, Masterpet Corporation


case study

Corporate communications

The words ‘budget’ and ‘deadline’ often put creatives into a spin. Not us. It’s one of the realities of business.

A Government Department needed 3 books (24, 40 and 68 pages) designed and printed within a 10 day timeframe and tight budget.

We delivered on time and under budget — stress free. We always do.

Corporate communications

This NGO asked us to redesign all of their brochures. Great for us.

However, we soon discovered that their brochures were not being read because the target audience hardly ever came into contact with them and if they did, ignored them.

Instead, we recommended a radio advertising campaign to raise the organisation’s profile and make their work relevant to the target audience. The campaign was a resounding success.

No design for us but a great result for the client.

Logo design

Every client is important to us.

We put the same thinking and insights into even the smallest project, like this logo for a one person start-up, as we do for a big corporate campaign.

We’ve designed hundreds of identities and we understand how daunting the process can seem for a new client. We make sure that you are completely happy with our design solution and also with the design process.

You want the best, and that’s what we aim for.
