Who we are

Here at Farrimond we've earned our stripes creating campaigns that have reached the hearts and minds of consumers in New Zealand and overseas for more than ten years now. In fact, it’s fair to say we started our relationship with shoppers long before it was fashionable to do so.

It's a relationship that has seen us grow to a 25 strong team of specialists who truly enjoy what we do. We care about the work, each other, the people our ideas reach and the clients that we partner with.
