A creative consultancy
We are a creative consultancy dedicated to harnessing the intelligent and effective application of creativity in everything we do. We approach all our work with a media-neutral mindset, ensuring all channels and brand touchpoints are considered.

First and foremost, Bonfire Creative Intelligence is a dynamic company; the needs of our clients and their customers are ever changing, and as a result we continue to evolve with them. This diversity is illustrated in both the broad portfolio of successful work we deliver, and in our growing multi-disciplined team.

Ideas on their own have never been enough; it's how they are filtered, developed, and implemented that determines how successful they will be. Bonfire achieves this through Creative Intelligence™.

Bonfire achieves this through commitment to its values, multi-channel philosophy and the application of our Creative Intelligence™ approach.

This ensures that we are always, and remain, onBrief®.

Our vision is to be the creative partner of choice through an ongoing commitment to community, integrity and results.

Our fantastic team

Bonfire has a 30 strong, award-winning, multi-disciplined team that applies insight, creativity and a media-neutral approach to every business challenge; delivering great results time and again.
