Whether you're a start-up or multi-national brand, our marketing experts, web strategists and design gurus are equipped to take on any creative challenge.

First, let's get to know each other. We can't wait to understand what you do and who you do it for, so we can help you do it even better!


You name it, chances are we can help you with it.

Looking for design that grabs your audience? Need a brand that tugs at the hearts of your consumers? Time to update your out-of-date website? Not sure where to start with your social media? Want help with your marketing strategy? Require a journalist to tell your story? Run out of business cards or other print collateral?

We've got you covered.


If your organisation needs an effective integrated marketing strategy or a plan to launch a new initiative, №9 can help you get your messaging right.

Our marketing services include:

  • Communications audit
  • Marketing plan of next steps for how to effectively spend your time and money on marketing
  • Strategic creative campaign concepts
  • Execution of tools for you to use as a model for future projects
  • Launching your new brand or marketing campaign

We don't just create pretty pictures! As a business or organisation, you need a brand and vision that sets you apart from competitors, highlights your unique selling points and speaks to the needs of your audience. Whether we’re designing a logo, a business card, a series of billboards or multi-page report, we approach each challenge from the perspective of your audience. By understanding your audience and your goals, we can emphasise your key messages through design, present new ideas, and liven up your collateral.

Our design services include:

  • Logo and visual identity
  • Brand development and application
  • Websites and blogs
  • Marketing collateral
  • Social media branding
  • Print materials including reports, magazines and newsletters.

We create seamless online experiences on both desktop and mobile platforms, through user experience strategy, design, and development. Behind every effective website is a strategic user experience. So before we get into the ‘pretty’ stuff, it’s important for us to understand your user, what they’re looking for and why, as well as what devices they’re using. A good user interface anticipates the needs of the user, streamlines content and navigation by understanding the hierarchy of information, and automatically adapts to function across all platforms.

Once we’ve mapped out your site and user interface, we carry your brand and messaging into the designs before developing a responsive, functional, and beautiful website. Whether you need a basic site for your new business or it’s time to give that outdated corporate site a facelift, we offer a range of web services to meet your needs and your budget.

  • User Experience Strategy
  • User Interface Design
  • Responsive web design
  • Custom site development and content management system
  • Wordpress site development with customized template
  • Social media strategy, design and management
  • HTML newsletter
  • Flipbook/eBook

During the past decade we’ve established a reputation as a talented, creative team.

We respect deadlines, do some straight talking when it’s needed and deliver quality results for our clients. We’ve worked with start-ups, one-man bands, large corporates, councils and community groups… you name the industry and we’ll name the work we’ve done.

Prepare to be impressed by the scale and scope of our output – not bad we reckon, for a little company with big ideas.


The №9 team is bursting with talent, skill, experience and enthusiasm…

Ok, so modesty might not be our strong point... We’re not shy about promoting our clients so we can’t be shy about ourselves!

Our collective efforts ensure you get what you need, when you need it, and we’ll also prompt you to do things you’ve never even thought about – but only if we believe it will benefit your business and your bottom line.
