words of wisdom

"Flick and Jason delivered an outstanding campaign for ShelterBox providing great results in the process. They both have a natural sense of visual design and fully understand the online environment. Their passion and dedication are outstanding personal attributes which make them stand out among their peers.

 

Flick understands the importance of integrating your company's brand strategies at every point of public contact. She is a cool head in times of crisis and always offers expert judgement and guidance.

 

As a team they are extremely professional and creative in every aspect of their work. They possess a rare quality of creative entrepreneurial insight which they apply with great skill to their  clients work.

 

Their approach is very much to work with the client to understand their objectives.  However, they will where necessary challenge thinking to ensure that results are optimised.

 

Flick and Jason have built-up a very successful business at Bullzeye Marketing and Design and I have no hesitation in recommending Flick and Jason to any organisation seeking marketing,  design advice or consultancy."

 

Mike Cahill

Director, ShelterBox New Zealand

“Not long into my role, I had various staff raising concerns about the organisations brand – while it was a well-recognised brand in the local community, the name wasn’t working well for us – it didn’t tell people anything about us. I engaged Bullzeye to create a new brand and they quickly understood the culture of the organisation, listening and engaging with our staff, consumers and key stakeholders.

 

The Bullzeye team provided great advice for managing the rebrand and continue to support the organisation with marketing advice. They are responsive to our needs and always open to feedback on the work they do on our behalf.

 

The visuals created by Bullzeye have absolutely taken us to a new level and the entire organisation loves the designs.”

 

Wendy Becker,

CEO, Enrich+

"We have been using Bullzeye Marketing and Design to assist with our branding, marketing and design since 1996. Bullzeye have effectively been our marketing department and we have trusted the team at Bullzeye with the brand design & marketing strategies for all four of our group companies. They have worked on all aspects of our brands from logo design to vehicle and building signage to product packaging, marketing materials, ad campaigns, web design, field days and everything in between.ᅠ One of the greatest advantages of working with Bullzeye is that they can provide a seamless service from conception through to production and have been able to deliver time and again even under some very tight deadlines. The team at Bullzeye are great people and a lot of fun to work with - always producing very professional work of the highest standards."

 

Warren Morritt,

Managing Director, Intelact Limited

"I met Felicity and Jason by chance and was immediately impressed with their passion for, and skills in, marketing and design. I was in the process of setting up a business at that time, so instilled their help. The Bullzeye team went to a lot of time and effort to develop an understanding of my unique business, and come up with awesome branding for me. I was particularly impressed with their ability to develop a brand mark that appealed to both children and adults, while also appearing very clean and professional. Over time Bullzeye have assisted me with ongoing design and production of branded giveaways (the balloons are really popular!), and website design. Any requests I have are seen to really quickly and work is always of an excellent quality. Felicity and Jason are just great to deal with.

 

The brand developed by the Bullzeye team has been critical in the development of my practice; children look forward to coming to see the ‘hippo dentist’!! I have no hesitation in recommending Bullzeye to other businesses."

 

Katie Ayers,

Director, Katie Ayers Paediatric Dentist

"I am the Communications/Media Manager for Bay-Waikato Fire Region and as part of my role am often called upon in a national capacity to manage the development and implementation of the New Zealand Fire Service’s public education strategies and programmes.

 

In 2005, I headed a national project to develop the New Zealand Fire Service’s pre-school strategy. This included the development of a pre-school fire safety resource. Our brief to the supplier was to design and develop a high quality resource with fresh, bright and appealing graphics/imagery and content. The resource was to maximise the opportunity for interaction with children and parental and family participation. Alignment with New Zealand Fire Service branding and learning outcomes and consistency with current learning and teaching practices were an essential element.

 

The supplier was required to undertake qualitative research and a consultative approach with stakeholders during the design, production and piloting to ensure information accuracy and appropriateness, clarity of message and relevance of content to curriculum requirements.

 

A number of Communications/Graphics Designers and illustrators specializing in producing educational resources were given the opportunity to quote on this project. Bullzeye won the contract as this company was the only supplier who was able to meet all the criteria within the required budget and timeframe.

 

Our experience in working with Bullzeye was very positive. Their team provided an innovative, creative and resourceful approach while integrating sound research and marketing principles with curriculum requirements. They were in constant communication with us through every step of the process and we believe they went the extra mile to meet all our needs. As an example they traveled to China to source a printing supplier who was able to provide a high quality resource more economically.

 

We are delighted with and proud of the pre school resource kit ‘Get out! Stay out!’ It has had wide appeal and use nationally and has drawn accolades internationally. It often appears in our newspapers and magazines as a programme that children really enjoy. We are constantly kept busy with requests from kindergartens and pre-schools for more take-home resources indicating a high level of repeat business.

 

I believe Bullzeye are world class leaders in this field of work and I confidently recommend them as highly professional and great to work with."

 

Megan Dromgool,

NZ Fire Service

“Bullzeye have been absolutely wonderful in providing marketing advice. Having no previous marketing experience and taking on marketing responsibilities in my role has been daunting but Felicity has made life so much easier, always available to provide guidance or just reassurance that I’m on the right track. Nothing is too much trouble for Felicity or Jason and they are a fantastic team to work with”.

Executive Assistant, Enrich+

"In 2009 the Wintec School of Media Arts contracted Felicity Beadle (through Bullzeye) to write, deliver and teach 2 third year papers for the Bachelor of Media Arts. ᅠFelicity went on to teach and assess Advertising Strategies and Brand Campaign papers for 3 1/2 years, mostly in the evenings. ᅠ Felicity taught mainly public relations and advertising students in the Bachelor of Media Arts. Due to the pressures of her own business she is now only available to Wintec to deliver 4 specialist lectures a semester.

 

Felicity brought impressive energy and a wealth of professional detail to both of these courses.ᅠ Her work was very conscientious and always delivered to a very high standard.

 

Felicity was very well appreciated by her students and was our brand leader for the advertising pathway of the degree. ᅠWe really miss Felicity now that she is focusing on her own agency and I highly recommend her to any future clients."

 

George Lusty,

Waikato Wintec

"I have worked with Jason Roberton and the Bullzeye team for the last fourteen years (when we selected them as our preferred supplier from three top designers) and have always been impressed with the excellent quality of their work and their professionalism.

 

They consistently deliver projects as briefed, on time and within budget, as well as approaching us with new ideas and initiatives - such as the creation of our SunSmart character for children, Undercover Cody and the resultant books, posters, stickers, web site, wall charts and CD etc.

 

Jason has an especially good understanding of our objectives and the work we do, which makes him a valuable part of the Cancer Society team. In the interests of time and efficiency, the majority of communication between Bullzeye and us has been via phone, email and courier and this has always worked well.

 

I would not hesitate to recommend Bullzeye as full service graphic design supplier to any organisation."

 

Judy Gould,

CEO, Waikato/Bay of Plenty Division Cancer Society of NZ Inc.

"I had a piece of work needing completing that was outside of my expertise. Well, I knew the subject topic in-depth, but I am not an engagement expert. As I talked to people about the work, several large organisations asked dif I knew Bullzeye. They told me that Felicity from Bullzeye Marketing is great:  “She works extremely well with our client group and the group of people just love her manner style and enthusiasm.” They also said her reports are excellent. So with those high recommendations, I tracked Felicity down for a chat and coffee and engaged her to do the facilitation and report for us.

 

Felicity met and exceeded my expectations and now I can recommend her to others.

Felicity helped me flesh out my topic more and identify the questions I wanted answers for. She showed me examples of her work and talked to me about the small things that make such a huge difference to participants and eventually the readers of the report. She made visuals to serve as triggers for discussions and made the group think they had grand ideas.

Felicity was always professional. She kept in close contact with me along the way to ensure I knew the next steps and where she was up too. Also to make sure I was doing what I had promised to do as well. She was most appropriate with the people she worked with and that was evident by their response to her. Some people she knew from a previous interaction were delighted to come across her again.

 

The report at the end is a wonderful tool. It raises points of interest to my work place and the agencies that support the subject group. The summary at the beginning has been useful to circulate as a taster as to what the report is about. People who have the summary have either asked for the full report or requested a meeting to discuss possible actions from the report. This is precisely what we wanted from the report.

I found Bullzeye thoroughly professional, fun to work with and the end product was like receiving a Christmas present; on time, exciting and just what I asked for!"

 

Judy Small,

Hamilton City Council

"Bullzeye came recommended to us and their marketing knowledge and proficiency, along with their enthusiasm was clear from the start.ᅠ They took the time to get to know not only what we did but also what our values were as an organisation.

 

Bullzeye’s experience and expertise were instrumental in guiding us to seek the involvement of both our existing and potential clients in the form of Focus Groups.ᅠ Opinions were sought from the each group regarding, revamping our website, refreshing our logo and looking at our branding.

 

After gathering feedback and suggestions from our Focus Groups, Bullzeye were able to design a new energised brand mark, along with a brand line we felt captured who we are and what we do.ᅠ Work was also done on our website to create a more user-friendly and up to date look.

 

I found Bullzeye’s approach to be passionate and professional, with a ‘nothing is too much trouble’ attitude."

 

Paula Gardner,

National Manager Altogether Autism

“During the past year Community Living considered ways in which to survey our key stakeholders e.g. people we support, their family /whanau and staff.  We wanted to gain an understanding of how Community Living was perceived as a provider and employer, what the expectations and aspirations of stakeholders were and what they thought Community Living could improve on, now and into the future.

 

Chief Executive Marese McGee spoke with other providers and the name ‘Bullzeye’ was mentioned frequently. The providers said how they had employed Bullzeye and how pleased they were with the process and the evidential outcomes. The providers gave glowing feedback on the professionalism of Bullzeye and their engagement with stakeholders. A meeting was arranged with one of the providers for more in depth discussion and at the conclusion of the meeting we were given the contact details for Bullzeye.

 

A meeting was arranged with Felicity Beadle from Bullzeye. Felicity listened to what we wanted and provided us with some possible options. Felicity also outlined how she would work within the options provided and clearly outlined the ethical beliefs and values she would bring to her work.

 

As an organisation we were impressed by Felicity’s professional and insightful approach to her initial presentation and her beliefs and values aligned with that of our own. Throughout the whole process Felicity was in constant contact with us and we were in no doubt as to the tasks that were required to be completed.

 

During the process Felicity was able to elicit valuable information from all groups and it was evident in her final report how easily she was able to build a rapport and trust with the groups she worked with in such a short period of time.

 

We were impressed by Felicity’s professionalism in terms of how she structured the qualitative survey process, the support that was provided with regards to pre-survey preparations, overall time management of the project and the information and layout of the final report.

 

We will certainly employ Bullzeye in the future and are very happy to recommend them for stakeholder focus groups."

"Under the recommendation of a friend I contacted Jason and Felicity of Bullzeye Marketing to assist me with the creation of a name and logo of my sports endurance coaching business. I found both to be a pleasure to work with and very helpful throughout the whole process, from the initial consultation, brain storming sessions and creation of the final product. We met a number of times throughout the process and I always found them easy to talk with and their advice invaluable. I would definitely recommend them in future."
