Headquartered in Melbourne and established in 2015, Little Village Creative is an integrated creative agency with digital at its heart. We’re a team of strategists, producers, creatives, developers and marketing professionals who love to produce creative work of the highest quality for ambitious, forward-thinking businesses.
We think it’s pretty important to stand for something. Here’s what we’re all about.
We’re thinkers and doers
Action with a purpose is us. We lay the groundwork with great thinking, and then - no ifs or buts - we get it done to the highest possible standard.
We’re commercially conscious
We wholeheartedly believe that successful marketing initiatives (large and small) start with an understanding of the customer and a robust business goal. This puts us in the best possible position to do great creative work that works.
We always try to tell it how it is - and that may not be everyone’s cup of tea. But we wholeheartedly believe that healthy debates and honest discussions lead to marketing gold, and we value transparency and constructive feedback in return.
We love working with great people
Spending time with ambitious business owners, smart marketers and talented creative professionals is what gets us out of bed each day.
Good enough is not good enough.
Why be good when you can be amazing? If we're not proud enough to put our name to a piece of work, it doesn't leave the building.
