Strategy & Planning

Sometimes you just need to talk it out!

On top of our broad range of hands-on services, our Gold Coast design studio also offers creative consultation. Our sessions tend to focus on campaign execution, ongoing brand/perception management, and cultural development and evolution. However, we’re always open to meeting over a coffee to discuss other aspects of your marketing and advertising.

We have a range of clients we catch up with on a regular basis to discuss ideas to market and set plans of attack to further engage their audiences. We love to share our ideas and experience to help you develop fresh ways to approach your business challenges and goals.

We’ve also developed a strong network of partners that can help you in other aspects of your business, including SEO, SEM, market research and more. By sharing this network with you, we can effectively be much more than a Gold Coast design studio; we are a one-stop marketing solution for your company.


Our most notable success stories cover a wide range of industries and services, but there is one thing they have in common: they are all underpinned by consultations with our client. By working collaboratively with you along every step of the way, we can ensure all outcomes and milestones are perfectly aligned with your campaign goals and business objectives.


We like to think the impression our team makes on you will last long after your project has been completed or your campaign has come to a close. Our approach to our work is serious; we know how important securing great results is, so we don’t cut any corners. But at the same time, our attitude is always upbeat and fun. This is how we ensure your time with 40/40 is just as satisfying as the outcomes of our work.


Have an advertising idea you need to flesh out? Or need some direction on where to take your business’s marketing? Whether you have it mostly figured out or haven’t even started yet, our people can help you draw up some directions for your brand’s advertising. Call us up on (07) 55 006 731 or contact us online. We look forward to getting to know you in our Gold Coast HQ!

The 40/40 Approach

The first step to any successful collaboration is getting to know each other. We aim to learn what the heart of your business is, and the message you want us to carry to the people. We'll sit down and swap stories about business principles, brand vision and most importantly – your product/service, as we build a picture of how we can best approach your project. By learning about you we will gain a valuable insight into your target audience and how we can help them to better identify with your brand.

We know that you'll walk away from your first sit down with us excited to see what comes next.

  • Initial meeting
  • Get to know you, your business and vision
  • Gain insight into your target audience
  • Discuss our approach and process
  • Clarify your brief requirements
  • Information gathering

They say too many chefs in the kitchen can spoil the broth. We disagree. Maybe it's because we have an arsenal of master chefs from all corners of the culinary world that is creative design. For us, creative development is our chance for our collective minds to help others realise the full potential of your business.

Chances are, you've already got great product. We aim to tug that string in everyone's mind that makes them want to see what the fuss is about. We'll flesh out the best path we can take to realise that goal, and through our network of artists and designers, will begin to craft the platform to further elevate your business.

Once we've truly got a vision for your project, we'll throw back to the studio where our resident nerds/wizards/designers/boffins will shape the ideas formed in creative development. We connect your business with people through all forms of multi-media and art, so it's a collaborative effort whenever we take on a project.

We have a heavily armed web and graphic design department that is at the heart of our business, and key to our success. No matter the design brief, our work has the hallmarks of a veteran team that strives to make anything possible. Our client list is testament to the quality of our work, and we endeavor to make each project better than the last.

We know that you'll walk away from your first sit down with us excited to see what comes next.

We trust that all of our works will match up to your highest expectations, but we don't expect you to take our word for it. So of course, yours will be the first set of eyes outside of our offices to view your completed work. At this point we have, in our opinion, completed your project to the highest standards possible and it is ready for launch. You will be able to test the functionality of your project, down to the finest details and update us as to any changes you think may be necessary. The brains trust will make any required changes or updates, and finally it will be time to unveil your project to the world.

  • Client concept reviews
  • Content proofing
  • User experience testing
  • Functionality testing
  • Changes and alterations
  • Final approval to launch

When the day comes to unveil our work to the world, we are fully equipped to make a splash in any manner of mediums. As our website showcases, we are all about the culture. We can co-ordinate a launch of any level from a simple website launch, through to coordinating all your social media outlets and even launch parties. Not content with providing you with a solid product, we can provide ongoing support too.
