We design for the people.

We’re not pretenders. We think our work speaks for itself, but here’s what a few of our key partners have said about working with Grindstone.

“Designing a final report for a Royal Commission isn’t a project that comes along every day. There are enormous volumes of information and a need for attention to detail, soaring expectations and some super tight deadlines. Grindstone were creative, professional and reliable all the way through the project, particularly during those high pressure moments. They demonstrated time and again their ability to adapt to some evolving requirements from our end. We were really pleased to work with them, they’re a great team.

Apart from their clean design approach and ability to deliver creative solutions to our broad brief, one of the most impressive things about Grindstone was their commitment to delivering what they said they would deliver. The quality of work was always to a really high standard and their communication was very clear. We are really proud of the final report and we think the additional tools Grindstone helped us create, like the website and fact sheets, will help the community to engage with the Commission’s final report now and into the future.”

“…many thanks for the time, and deep listening during the brand strategy process”

…the work of the Grindstone team has been incredibly respectful and reflective of our feedback, culture, values and knowledge.

The brand/s and narrative are brilliant.”

“When selecting a supplier to develop our new website, it was imperative that they not only have the relevant skills and experience, but just as importantly, have a personable and approachable working style. Being almost solely responsible for maintaining our organisation’s website, I knew I would be working very closely with them. I needed to feel comfortable picking up the phone and asking them any number of silly questions. I now consider Grindstone very much an extension of my team.

With limited resources, I leant heavily on Grindstone as I would a colleague. They proofed and polished the content, they applied our existing branding perfectly, and they did all the fancy behind-the-scenes stuff to ensure the site is accessible, secure and SEO compliant.”

We think that when you add like-minded people and
brands together, the possibilities are multiplied

We call this the collaboration effect.

We believe collaboration is the
intersection of capability, innovation,
insight and creativity.

It’s at this point that great
things can happen.

Where ideas come together,
problems are solved and
unique value is added.

And all of this equals better
brand experiences.
