WHO WE ARE

OUR CREW

Grindstone Advertising is a creative and dynamic Digital Agency, and we also specialise in Brand Development. With a passion for seeing our clients’ businesses grow, we love working with start-ups – but we also love the challenge of working with corporates.


We don’t like putting ourselves in a box and never say no to a new idea or challenge, but if we had to list our skills, they would include the following: Marketing Strategies, Marketing Management, Website Development, Social Media Management, Brand Development, SEO, Corporate Identity Development, Packaging Design, Graphic Design and Publishing.


With us, you don’t just get a good design, you get a good design team. We are brand strategists who just happen to design pretty good logos as well.
