Having worked on a number of retail projects with them, they have listened carefully every time to the brief and come up with a solution. Projects are always approached with enthusiasm and a focus to deliver on-time.”
“D+M are a highly strategic and easy to work with creative & digital agency – going above and beyond to deliver upon your marketing needs and objectives. They have successfully increased our website traffic by 10, and achieved close to 1 million impressions during our past campaign period. Following our campaign, they also provided terrific insight into who our customers are, which has helped further tailor recent campaigns, messaging & content.”
“I’d like to sincerely thank you, Fran and Julie for all of your support over the years, it has been an absolute pleasure working with you (and seeing your creative vision come to life for Toombul!) and I’ll particularly miss your positivity and happy nature Jo! We appreciate everything you’ve done for the centre and I’m sure (we) will remain in touch for future campaigns and concepts. Hopefully, I get the chance to work again with you all in the future.”
“The versatile skill set of D+M goes far beyond any other creative & digital agency I have worked with. Their work is insights led and they are exceptionally strategic in their approach to any campaign big or small, which separates them from the rest. They have the ability to digest and interpret any type of brief and make suggestions based off my campaign targets which in turn solves any business challenges. Without fail they consistently deliver engaging, creative and beautiful campaigns (both digital and creative) that align with my branding within deadline. All the while providing exceptional client service that always leaves me feeling positive, happy and excited after each interaction with any member of the team.”
“You’ve been an instrumental part of “Team PIA” over the past couple of years. Assisting us in creating and building our departmental brands, launching new businesses, creating project branding and everything in between. I thank you for your contribution to the growing success of our brand – it takes a village, and you were a valued villager in this process.”
“We recently commissioned Design Marketing to help us with a re-design of our website. The team came up with a number of thoughtful, attractive and functional options that encapsulated the essence of our business and what we wanted to communicate to clients and the broader market.”
“Julie and her team at D+M just get it...they take the time to form a close relationship with your business so they can truly understand what you are trying to achieve and then work tirelessly alongside you on developing strategies to deliver success.”
