Moxie is a design strategy consultancy
That means we are strategic thinkers, designers and producers of creative communications.
We encompass in-depth skills in conventional and new media.
Being a consultancy means people come to us for advice. Our mission is to ensure that the advice we provide results in the highest calibre of campaigns and creative assets that go straight to the hearts and minds of our clients’ audiences.
People often ask us this. In the US, to be described as having ‘Moxie’ — as in “he’s got Moxie” — means being someone with courage, daring and energy. We chose the name advisedly. It’s who we are … we have attitude!
Moxie Communications has been trading successfully and solvently for more than 20 years. Before adopting the trading name of Moxie in 2003 we have been known variously as EmDesign and Missen Design Group.
In addition to our position as one of Wellington’s leading design and communications strategy consultancies, we are renowned for being leaders in sustainable thinking.
Why are we different?
Because we give a damn!
No, really we do. We care about what you’re doing. Any job, whether it’s big or small, will be taken on with the same level of skill, love and attention.
Our account management philosophy? No suits!
It’s about keeping it real. No middle men. All our team members work directly with our clients.
We take this approach because we’ve found a project’s success is driven by the unique partnership that exists between the creative thinkers and the client. We can engage at a level that allows everyone to participate and be rewarded by the process.
We’re collaborators not dictators
We put on our thinking caps and come up with gutsy ideas that help get your messages, your brand or your cause in front of those who need to know about it – wherever they might be.
Moxie’s aim is to become ‘honorary members’ of our clients’ teams and to make our collaborations enjoyable, relevant and successful for everyone involved.
We believe in celebrating successes and project stage completions.
We also welcome the opportunity to share a coffee, lunch … or perhaps a glass of wine … on a regular basis.
We care to make a difference
For our clients and the people in their orbit. For ourselves and the people in ours. But also for the the world we live in.
How we work
Moxie builds solutions from context. We bring a wealth of experience to every new project, but ensure we create communications solutions that meet the specific needs of our clients and ultimately their audiences. We are confident that this approach delivers effective, lasting and efficient results.
We are an agile and progressive agency. We’re happy to lead our clients and a consortia of external suppliers and we’re also open to new approaches and new relationships.
We pride ourselves on building effective collaborations with our clients and the other supplier agencies they contract. We understand the importance of working together and within agreed parameters in order to build consistent messages across all their communications media.
Happy to admit what we don’t know
We take pains to stay informed and keep at least one eye on the future. However we don’t include a crystal ball in our studio kit. Instead, we partner with specialists in their fields to keep our skills and knowledge base relevant and now and to be able to offer a seamless service across the communications spectrum.
