JFM Creatives are happy to provide support for the local community and love to see it thriving.

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.

Social Media Support

Working with the JFM team was easy! They are so friendly and have a bunch of awesome ideas about how to promote businesses. Since working with Jo and Janice on our Facebook page our posts are getting so much more reach and engagement! We are really enjoying trying to use the tips and tricks Janice suggested to help our posts go further!! We would certainly recommend JFM to anyone wanting help with their social media.

For a partnership of this nature to work we must have the trust that our marketing will reflect who we are and what we do. JFM takes the time to ask the questions and understand our business. Rather than an outside company we see JFM as an extension of our own.

Our Process



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!

Our Work


What is a marketing and design agency?

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.

What can marketing do for my business?

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.

Can’t I just do it myself?

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.

What type of industries have you worked with before?

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.

My business is quite small / quite large - can you still help me?

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.
