Got a minute? Here’s 372 carefully chosen words about Brownpaperbag.


So, you’ve got something really, really good you want to tell lots of people about. Well, sadly, so have a lot of other people.

If you want everyone to know that what you’ve got is really, really, really, really good, first you’re going to have to fight, kick, and punch your way through all those other messages. Kind of sounds like war doesn’t it? And, it kind of is. But the good news is that it’s not really a hard war to win.

All you have to do is be clever, be likeable, have a good team on your side, and a little bit of bravery doesn’t hurt either.

Brownpaperbag could be the team you’re looking for to help you win the war to be heard. We’re a full-service web development studio aimed at the local New Zealand market – and we’ve been doing it for 15-odd-years.

Now, we aren’t going to baffle you with tweeting Facebook algorithm robot talk. And we aren’t going to sell you something you’ll never use like a machine that you can rock, rock, rock your way to firmer abs with.

We’ll discover what you need and tailor make something to fit you. This isn’t a science, there is no “one size fits all” , 7 easy steps, or a secret recipe. We do something remarkably simple that not a lot of people do (or have forgotten to do).

Listen – that’s what we do first, then we put our collective shoulder to the plow for your project. At the risk of sounding like a grumpy old dad, we’ve been in this business a long time, and we know what it's like out there.

We know the web. We know social media. We know about branding and marketing, we know technology, we know what works, we know what doesn’t, we know about the importance of design, we know a whole bunchof big words and “marketing” speak that we could have put in here, but at the end of the day, we know what we’re talking about. And we know that all you care about is getting your message out there, and you need a bunch of people who know what they’re doing to team up with. That’s us.
