At the Bug (thebughouse), we feel very fortunate to be working with teams of incredibly dedicated passionate and zealous individuals in the very crowded and competitive not-for-profit industry .
Our world has certainly been broadened through this experience. Nothing is more humbling nor more motivating than being around people who are clearly driven, not by self-gain, but to benefit others. Their tireless efforts are focused on providing the financial means to maintain the safety, health, wellbeing and often, survival of diverse communities.
Welcome to ‘thebughouse’ graphic design studio We have been operating for 20 years and our hive of talented designers come in all shapes, sizes and ages and have differing interests which is why we are successful in producing visual material across a wide variety of industries, generations and demographics. Our client base crosses broad industry sectors including Not-For-Profit, FMCG, Gov’t, Education, Aged Care, Health and Leisure.
Being small means we never forget what makes us buzz – our clients, great work and retaining a quality team. We thrive on communication and relationship building. This philosophy is ingrained in the culture of our team. As a small business, we know what it takes to be successful, deliver commercial and response driven design solutions.
With a history of working with small to medium sized business means we understand what it takes to start from scratch, be noticed and stay within budget. Our design focus is to always link creativity with commercial results. At any point in time, you will have direct access to our designers which means information relating to your project is one contact point away without ever having to wait.
We specialise in making you look good. Our job is to bring the ideas that are buzzing around in your head out into the open so the world can see, read, feel and touch your brand in all the mediums your customers respond to. Your design needs can range from a one-off advertisement, to complete brand concept design and implementation. The brief can be as rigid or free flowing as you want.
