Hello Jo. Thank you so much for having us to visit last week. It was great to spend time with you, Justine and Janice and we appreciated hearing about your different roles, of how you all entered the industry via various routes and what happens day to day in your business. Your stories were really interesting, as was learning how information and ideas in the beginning can lead to a spark of imagination, and how that can in turn flow through to creative design products! We came away feeling inspired and understanding more about how we are our own brand.
Thanks again! Ara Institute of Canterbury NZ Certificate in Foundation Skills students. May 2018
When we ran our 2017 Facebook training workshops, Jo Foster our founder was happy to offer eight free places for local community groups. Hospice Mid Canterbury is one of our current partners, receiving a substantial discount as well as creative services to develop newsletters, brochures, marketing collateral and advice. JFM Creatives also created posters and tickets for the 2017 Ashburton Rowing Club fundraiser.
We also have supported Celtic Rugby in the past by designing the home game program each week for the 2015/2016 season and also digitized the Senior B’s logo for uniforms in 2017. During the iconic Wheels Week event in 2013 and 2014, support was needed to craft print advertisements, posters and marketing collateral, which we were happy to provide. When the Ashburton Stadium Trust needed to fundraise from 2012-2014, we were happy to support by creating the original funding website, presentation, sales tools, print advertising, advertorials and the design of the external road sign.
At JFM, we offer a complimentary one-hour consultation. Our aim is to get to know you and what makes your business different, as well as gaining an understanding of potential marketing opportunities, goals and challenges.
Following your initial meeting, JFM will put together a proposal, which provides an overview of our meeting, estimated studio hours to execute proposed activities and agreed outcomes.
Once we have your approval to commence work, the magic starts. Our marketing, web and design gurus get together to start executing your projects, developing a strategy, creative and communications that we believe are perfectly suited to your business or organisation.
Our approach is always collaborative to help create effective marketing campaigns which connect to your audience. We are all about making marketing your business easier!
A marketing and design agency is a business with a group of creative individuals that all work together to create the best outcomes for clients.
Marketing is all about getting the word out about your business and getting you to stand out from the crowd. Marketing your business will result in getting more clients, building a brand personality and making a name for yourself in the market.
We find that for many people, they can do it themselves but often they don’t know the full range of options available to them or they may not find writing and design comes easy when they try. Our team has been trained in the specific techniques needed to execute marketing messages to an audience, effectively.
A huge variety of businesses including farming, agriculture, corporate, building, real estate, haulage, machinery sales, not for profits, wedding planning, fabrication, engineering, insurance, contracting and many more! Our flexible staff are quick learners and are very adaptable, so we’ll be able to help no matter what industry you’re in.
JFM Creatives have worked with every type of client, from owner-operators to large national corporate companies. We can work with anyone who has a need for marketing and design support, because we’re flexible in our approach and can easily scale up and down as required to meet a clients objectives.
