YOUR BRAND, BUSINESS & BOTTOM LINE!

Our years working for big brands and big agencies sure lined the pockets of the boardroom bigwigs (and taught us a thing or two about growing brands and businesses).  But we don’t believe that having a great agency should be reserved for the superbrands and corporate giants.

We love creating great websites. We love building unique brands. We love connecting passionate businesses with the customers who need them most. Big is cool, big is fancy –  but small and plucky with room to grow is where the magic really happens. We love small businesses with a story to tell, solopreneurs with big dreams and challenger brands who want to shake things up. That’s us. If that’s also you, we want to help.

WE’RE NOT YOUR TYPICAL AGENCY!
BIG BRAND THINKING
BIG AGENCY EXPERIENCE
START-UP FRIENDLY BUDGETS

NO BS. NO JARGON.

AND NO SELLING YOU STUFF YOU DON’T NEED!

Just using what we know to help small businesses (like us) to win big.

THE
ARCADE WAY!

HONESTY IS OUR ONLY POLICY

We don’t just talk a good game. No smoke and mirrors, waffley presentations and techie jargon to justify mammoth fees. We have a conscience and want to build a sustainable business that we love running. We’re here to help other businesses on their journey and not rip them off.

MEAN WORK FOR LEAN FEES

Quality work often comes with a hefty price tag but a lot of that is made up of expensive agency overheads. We keep things simple, working remotely, not spending money where we don’t need to and keeping our team lean so you don’t pay for ten people to pass your project around.

WE DO IT PROPERLY OR WE DON’T DO IT

We don’t cut corners. We’d love it if this were always the case, but it’s not and it really narks us when we see clients pay for suppliers’ mistakes. You’ll only deal with senior people who do things meticulously and try to make life easier for you in whatever way we can.

NICE WORDS FROM

REAL CLIENTS

Arcade Digital was a huge asset in the creation of our product and website, Beer Passport.
Tristan was able to bring to life our idea through his skills as our developer. He was approachable and flexible when we needed small (and large) amendments made. They also helped us save a significant amount of money with some of their recommendations.
We simply couldn’t be happier with the service they provided and look forward to working with them again soon.

Mike TownsendBeer Passport

Building a website, even if you’re like me and know a good bit about it, is stressful! Working with Arcade takes the pressure off of worrying “Will it look how I want”? “Will it work how I want?” 100% of the websites they’ve built for me have been clearly crafted with care, showcasing the most important features of the site and with a backend I can manage later on my own. I keep coming back to them and have recommended them to a number of friends and clients.

Abba CarmichaelMultiple Clients

Tristan is more than just a freelance designer/developer, I consider him a team member. He doesn’t blindly follow a brief, but thankfully (gently) challenges something until clarity triumphs. We’ve never (physically) met and work on two separate continents, yet I’m still getting him involved in projects 5 years later. That, I hope, speaks for itself.

Jarrod BischoffVapes & Tobacco

Their strong work ethic has been monumental in ensuring deadlines are met and clients are happy with their (sometimes crazy) deadlines. Tristan is an absolute design machine! Maximum pleasure to work with them as always.

James Towers16K Agency

When I saw my new website for the first time, it made me very proud of my business. This is an amazing experience for a client.

Working with Arcade Digital has enabled us to grow our brand and increase our exposure to a wider audience. They have understood what our business needs to achieve from the start and continue to deliver design that connects with our audience perfectly across all touch points.

Rodney HigginsMicroflite Helicopter Services

We first approached Arcade Digital to assist us with redesigning our corporate identity. Their skills and creativity proved invaluable not only for redoing our website, but extended to our print design. They are now our go-to designers. It’s been a pleasure working with them – I’ve found them to be efficient, professional, timeous and extremely patient with my poorly articulated ideas and many questions!
