We’re Spinnaker.

A team with a flair for creating innovative, interactive and insight driven marketing.

We’re about building brands, social sharing and relationship marketing across channels and devices. We deliver advertising, content, social media, and CRM that drive human interaction and engagement. This is borne out of data and insights gathered through observation and listening.

We could talk for ages about our amazing tools, gizmos and toys but at the end of the day it’s all about how we use them that allows us to make a human connection. We call it brand humanisation.

We’d love to chat about your brand challenges, and if you would like to see a few examples of when we’ve nailed a tricky brief, outsmarted the competition, performed a world-first, or simply shown a brand’s human side come and have a chat.
