Every brand, communications and digital marketing solution starts with a problem. Solving those problems is part art, part science and part strategy – that’s why Taffy comes in different flavours.

Taffy Design has been a creative force for over a dozen years – working on some pretty amazing top-tier brands – from a variety of fun locations.

Originally operating out of inner city Sydney, we now share our creativity from our dedicated design studio just south of Hobart in Tasmania. The Taffy Design studio is perched atop a hillside looking out the the world renowned Hartz National Park – one of the most inspirational views in the Tassie, if not Australia.

While this location may seem isolated, we are never far away from our clients. In fact, in this day and age, face-to-face communications is mainly digital – so getting to know you and your brand has never been easier.

Our process

Our collaborative design methodology is refined and well practiced, ensuring our  creative solutions hit their mark.

We work with you to investigate your brand from every angle, until we find the right approach. Connections with your audience can come in unexpected ways – so we’re always keen to help you investigate.

Once we’ve done our investigation, we work you to define and tighten the brief (if necessary). This enables us to get it right first go, saving you time and money.

We believe in the power of dreaming things into existence. We’re not shy about bringing you ideas that are edgy and innovative if we think that’s the best way for you to connect with your audience.

There’s always a bit of back’n forth – we encourage it. We love getting constructive feedback and ensuring our clients are 100% satisfied.

Pull off the covers, buff it to a sheen and let’s put our creation out there!
