What we do
We provide strategic and tactical marketing support for business owners of all shapes and sizes. Our aim is to make your brand shine and help you grow your business.
We can manage your ongoing marketing with flexible arrangements and competitive day rates or pay per project.

Our brand workshop is designed to help you understand your identity, who your target audience is, what your USPs are and how to stand out from your competition.
Your employees are an extension of your brand so we work with you to make sure they’re doing all they can to support it.

Need to upskill your team?
We know that sometimes marketing tasks get given to employees who are not marketing trained as such. That’s totally fine, but a mentoring programme with the Design Grove might be just what they need to accelerate their learning and your businesses marketing success.

Why we are different
Working in a wide range of organisations over the years and through first hand experience, it is very hard to recruit marketing professionals that possess an ‘all round’ set of skills.
Often you find someone with great strategic knowledge but isn’t much of a writer. Or someone who is a great copywriter, but isn’t very creative.
With The Design Grove you get all this in one delightful package, providing a holistic marketing service for your business.
