who we have proudly worked with
I’ve engaged Deb’s creative services to develop a range of print & electronic marketing pieces, from pdfs, Powerpoint decks and websites, to e-newsletters, print invitations and more. Deb’s attention to detail is second to none. She’ll take a fairly loose layperson brief, ask the right questions, and then deliver a terrific product that’s always aligned with the sentiment of what I was looking for. Deb’s ability to deliver high quality materials super-quickly is just so rare, and it’s incredibly valuable. Most of all, she’s super-easy to deal with, making it stress-free and giving you confidence that she’ll have what you need in the timeframe you need it. Where most creative agencies will turn their nose up at small, ad hoc pieces of work (or try upselling you), Deb’s always been more than happy to help out with anything, small, medium or large. I have no hesitation in recommending Deb’s services to anyone!

Deb has been of significant assistance to Bakjac Consulting in designing marketing material to enhance our brand. Deb really lives the values of Coalmine Canary and has exceptional attention to detail. She displayed curiosity about what we do as an organisation, so as to gain a real sense of our culture. Deb showed patience and perseverance to make sure every detail was right and provided guidance and professional support to ensure a fantastic outcome for work designed. I would highly recommend Deb for her professionalism and dedication and for her innovative and collaborative working style.

so what's with the canary anyway?Well into the 20th century, coal miners brought canaries into coal mines as an early-warning signal for toxic gases, primarily carbon monoxide. The birds, being more sensitive, would become sick before the miners, who would then have a chance to escape.
At Coalmine Canary, we believe that the same sensitivity, or acute attention to detail, is extremely important in business too. How you portray your brand visually, speaks volumes to your customers no matter the quality of your business or your ‘big picture’ intentions. It’s these little things that will be judged.
