Driven Agency - about us

We are an independent creative agency specialising in brand, design and digital. We believe the best way to work is in close partnership with our clients. By understanding their business and their audiences, we are able to take on their challenges and craft effective, design led solutions.

How we work

Listen

01

Ideas that work require a deep understanding of the business’ needs, the audience and the marketplace. We gather information by listening, experiencing and asking all the right questions. We don't move forward until we uncover the bigger picture and get to the heart of the problem.

02

There are many ways of looking at the same problem. We keep an open mind while we create a range of ideas and explore different directions. We do all this in the search of new creative territories to test, develop and craft.

Craft

03

We are passionate about creating meaningful work. We pride ourselves on our craft and make every detail count. No matter how big or small the project, we don’t stop until it’s right. The first answer isn't always the right answer but it's one step closer to a solution that works.

Together

04

We believe that working in partnership with our clients results in long-term relationships which, in turn, produce the most effective work. This approach means we often continue the creative journey well after the first brief. We measure our success by how well we have solved our client’s business problems - together.

The thing Shane loves most about design is the endless possibilities of each project – in design, there’s thousands of solutions to a single problem. Choosing which direction to go takes creativity, strategic thinking, and rock solid instincts. After 11+ years with Driven, Shane has these in spades.

As our Senior Designer, Shane uses design, UX, and UI to visually communicate complex concepts in digestible and engaging ways.
