As partners in building the Hospital Association of South Africa brand, during a critical period in the history of healthcare reform, FireEngine has shown the necessary imperatives for a successful project: drive, creativity, sensitivity to complexity, a strategic mindset, and excellence. Our efforts have journeyed from the creation of a brand personality, the expression of that personality, building emotional connections to important stakeholders, and the establishment of core, clear, messages and creative expressions of those messages. Their extensive experience has been deployed despite a constrained budget, in expert ways. I would happily recommend FireEngine for start-up brands, in building established brands, to refresh brands, and certainly to give any brand a new lease on life.
I have worked with Natalie and Lynn and their company the FireEngine for around 10 years and have enjoyed their professional , fresh approach to how they conduct business, their design methodology and their relationship with me as a client. They are professional, creative and efficient. Their work has always been time sensitive and in the forefront of intelligent design. Thank you for the design development of my Brand ID and related corporate identity collateral.
My brief to Fire Engine: design a new logo and help me to establish a new look and brand identity for Joy Gardens.
Communication took place either via e-mail or telephonically, as I live in the North West.
The brief was correctly interpreted from start to finish and all elements, including my new logo, were designed and conceptualised in an innovative and highly creative way.
Communication was outstanding throughout the process and attention to detail was exceptional. All elements were completed timeously and all deadlines were met.
I would like to thank FireEngine for their creative and highly professional approach at all times.
It was an absolute pleasure dealing and doing business with them.
The Megafin website is the first project I have worked on with FireEngine Creative Specialists and their digital partners, RAW Digital. Both Lynn and Natalie were always very professional and accommodating, and went the extra mile to ensure my needs regarding the website were always met. I enjoyed the fact that they both engaged and interacted directly with me, without totally splitting out the roles. Their work was creative, delivered on time and with excellent client service. What more could you ask for. I will definitely work with them in the future.
A lot of time, effort and creativity went into the logo design, vehicle branding, business cards as well as the design of Bubbles & Bows, Mobile Doggy Parlour Facebook page. Posts of "pet clients" were created and added every day on Facebook which generated a lot of awareness and gained traction for my business.
As a start-up business I relied heavily on their professional advice and after 8 months have seen my client base grow to over 300 of which 255 are regulars clients.
FireEngine went the extra mile and I base the success of Bubbles & Bows, Mobile Doggy Parlour largely on the creative input and brand guidance received from them.
This is to confirm that Old Mutual Investment Group marketing has contracted services to the FireEngine over the last few years.
Activities included various below the line projects such as Event Conceptualisation and execution; Creative AV’s for roadshows; Design of publications as well as other marketing based projects.
The passion of the team and the depth of detail the team delve into is remarkable. Their dedication to a project and willingness to learn more really helped in executing a brief really well.
Our experience with the FireEngine mentioned above have been very positive and we would recommend their services.
Satrix has worked with The Fire Engine on a project basis over time. We have always found them to be understanding of our brand and intuitive around our needs. Projects deliverables have been of an incredibly professional nature, delivered on time and above our expectations.
I have had the pleasure of working with FireEngine for four years. I first met Natalie and Lynn whilst I was the MD of Shell South Africa leading a large organisation through substantial change. At extremely short notice , FireEngine were able to design, script, film and edit an important video communication which required filming in over 4 locations - some of which were remote and with highly restrictive access and security requirements. They were completely unphased by these obstacles and through sheer tenacity and commitment delivered the project in record time and extremely affordably. I truly appreciated their energy, accessibility and honest, unfiltered advice.
Since then I have embarked on a new adventure, starting my own consulting practice called Olakira. We specialise in working with executive teams and their next layers of leadership to turn business opportunities into tangible reality by simultaneously building leadership cohesion whilst developing robust and practical business strategies. In this venture, Natalie and Lynn have been true business partners to me since Olakira’s inception. With their creative genius they were able to convert my vision for Olakira into a unique and scalable brand. What I love about them is their range of support and their willingness to get their hands dirty in the detail. They didn’t just help with the sexy design and visual manifestation of the brand, but also provided me with a full suite business toolkit - from invoice formats to business cards, compliment slips and Christmas cards! No job is too menial or too small - because they know what it means to be a start up!
And to top it all of, they’re genuinely lovely people who take a real interest in me and my business and with whom I can bounce ideas around, debate the highs and lows of business ownership or just have a much needed good laugh together! Thank-you FireEngine - I’d recommend you any day!
I greatly enjoyed working with Lynn and the Evert Davidson Creative Partnership team of creative super heroes. Highly professional, highly engaged and committed to delivering quality work. From beginning to end, their sharp focus on both the big picture and the detail was evident and appreciated. Solid delivery from creative strategy through to execution. Lynn and Natalie really go the distance to ensure client needs are fully understood and fully met. A great team to work with overall.
The industry celebrated the 20th anniversary of Satrix 40, the first listed South African ETF in 2020. It is a significant milestone for us as a business and we wanted to capture the fascinating Satrix story in a few video clips that also spoke to the purpose of the brand. Having worked with Natalie and Lynn before, we trusted them with this massive task. They not only worked tirelessly and burnt the proverbial midnight oil for a few weeks but also poured their hearts into this project and delivered way beyond expectations! The clips captured twenty meaningful years of Satrix’s history and will without a doubt remain an inspiration to those involved in the next twenty years! It is truly a pleasure working with you both! We wish you well with this new chapter in YOUR story and will be looking forward to your creative input for years to come!
