About Us

When we left our senior positions with international advertising agencies in 1985, we set up CDV, combining our strategic and creative skills to offer a unique advertising tool for our clients.

We can be used as a separate creative resource to develop communication and advertising ideas, newsletters, corporate IDs or presentations. We can be utilised to develop entire marketing and communication strategies and budgets that flow through to ongoing creative development.

In short, you can plug us into your marketing workflow in any way that assists your communication development. 

Think of us as an experienced, mini advertising agency without the added costs and overheads.
