MEET THE PRINCIPLES
Our team of Marketing Mix Mavericks has been in the advertising business for more than 30 years. Media has advanced at breakneck speed over the last three decades and we have kept pace. We’ve taken calculated risks and seen them pay off. Nothing intimidates us. We’re game for anything our clients need.
With vast experience in every area of marketing, we draw on our knowledge to create the best strategy for each individual client. Since we do it all, we’re not trying to sell you on one product that we do well. Or make your needs fit into our mould. Our primary goal, always, is to harness the right product mix for you. So you can lead the herd, not follow it.
“I was fortunate to experience one of Jamie’s creative workshops. To this day I use the ideas and techniques she taught to keep my creativity alive. As a long-time freelance graphic designer there’s times when my creativity feels stagnated. It blows my mind that I still use what I learned in a one day workshop 15 years ago. It changed the way I view creativity. Areas were woke I never knew existed.”
- Kirsty Curnow, graphic designer

It has been an absolute pleasure to collaborate with Jamie and Frank on my first children's book.

Their guidance and deep understanding of the creative process has led me to an appreciation of their mentorship for my own professional development.

"Let's tell your story"
There is no one like you.
That simple, wonderful truth makes your story worth knowing. Stripped down, that is the essence of marketing.
Marketing is storytelling.
Jank Media & Design wants to know about the experiences that have shaped you and your organization and the achievements you take pride in – the important things that differentiate you from the pack.
We ask significant questions to unearth your organization’s authentic story. What gets your heart pumping?
What challenges have you overcome – or are dealing with at this moment? Are you in a period of growth or setback? Who inspires you? Are there particular wisdom sayings you and your team depend on? What makes your service or product stand out? What do your customers say about you? Where are you headed next? Is there a goal that eludes you?
Blending and balancing words, imagery, colour and rhythm, we can help you reveal your story. The one that no one else can claim.
The one that will make your customer stop, listen, react and then – take action.
After all, everybody loves a great story.
Let’s tell them yours.
