We are a team of thinkers, digital experts and trusted designers

Browndog is a fully-integrated agency with insight, brand strategy, design, creative and photography, digital, copywriting, PR and social media under one roof. We deal in effective, multi-channel communications between you and your customers, all the while with a smile on our faces.

We help businesses just like yours understand their customers better, develop compelling ways of communicating with them, and build effective communications with a focus on measurable results.

We love design. But even the most glorious words and magnificent pictures need a foundation. We make your brand talk through a seamless combination of strategy, marketing and design, both online and offline.

We know that in the end, it’s about results. Browndog have been creating great work, reaching new audiences and raising value for our clients for over 20 years. And before you ask, yes, we were literally named after a brown dog…

So, give us a call and see how we can work together.

Just in case you were wondering…

We get asked this a lot, so we wanted to start by letting you know that yes, our agency was named after a brown dog. Unfortunately, dogs don’t live as long as we do (we’ve been around for over twenty years now), so Max is no longer with us.

However, while the original brown dog may not be here, many of our dogs have become four legged team members and play a crucial role in our company’s culture.

If you pop in for a meeting or join us for a Zoom call, you might spot Olive, Scout, or Monty getting involved.

When it comes to wellbeing we appreciate the benefits that our furry team members bring to the office.

We love the boost they bring to productivity and morale, keeping our team happy throughout the day.

When it comes to marketing, dogs have a unique ability to connect with people on an emotional level. They’re universally loved, so incorporating them into your marketing efforts can make your brand more relatable and memorable.

Plus, using dog puns and facts can add a touch of humour and playfulness that resonates with audiences. (Sign up to our newsletter for evidence of this.)
