Be inspired

Inspiration begins with having a clear passion for what you do​ - it feeds the soul and is a constant source for creativity. Love this series of stories created by Porsche. When you think about it, it comes back to the basics: passion, trust, integrity and authenticity. For the launch of our new agency, we felt there was no better example!​ Click on the image below to take you to this series of great videos.

Introducing Davy & Chapman


Today comes with a sense of pride and excitement about launching Davy & Chapman, our new creative agency. As you can imagine it takes a lot to get to this point, questioning, evaluation and sheer time and energy to really showcase who we are and what we stand for. One of the biggest challenging questions is ‘what is your point of difference’, what sets you apart from every other creative agency out there - well, for us, it’s our very personal approach, those relationships we have developed over time, the sheer determination to make sure you experience the very best and that we exceed your expectations - a personable approach - that’s what sets us apart.

Great design offers value for our clients, industry and economy and we want to work with those clients that appreciate that - it can’t work any other way. We show up each day full of inspiration and ideas and we continually challenge what resources will keep raising the bar for our body of work, which in turn gives you the best possible result.

We feel grateful that we have done, and will continue to do amazing work, experience involvement in great projects that really showcase our craft, hone our skills and of course continue to challenge us personally, professionally and creatively. It’s with an enormous sense of responsibility and pride in knowing we’re designing material that will be seen across New Zealand and the World and has an impact for our clients and their brands.

We can attribute our success to date and the ability to launch this agency by the amazing team that we surround ourselves with and the clients that allow us, and trust us to work with them, problem solve and explore the best creative solutions, tailored for them.

As creatives who are passionate about brand and the digital space and more importantly about what a clear strategic approach can deliver - we know that improved business performance comes from a strong brand, so if there is a project you would like to consider us for, please don’t hesitate to tell us about it’s scope and scale and your vision for what you want to achieve - you will very clearly see the point of difference we offer. Today is an opportunity to reaffirm that passion, placing our names to a creative agency that is different - it’s us and it’s personal.

We are Davy & Chapman.

Bringing teams closer

We were commissioned to develop a new identity for an internal brand within Southern Cross Hospitals. The brief was very clear around developing a brand that supported a new central communications and resource platform for the team. It needed to highlight that it was a ‘one-stop-shop’ for access to all internal resources and reflect ease, collaboration and the efficiency of the new platform; effectively making it easier for everyone to access the very latest in tools and ultimately streamlining their operations.

The use of a tonal colour palette to represent the key attributes of the programme and a simple arrow device provided a clean, modern and fresh identity. Given it would be used among existing brand communications it was important to keep it simple but with an obvious reminder of its purpose.

The 4K experience

​Panasonic commissioned Davy & Chapman to rollout the new 4K Experience in store, bringing a dynamic visual display to the public with in-store POS.

Feed the addiction

Davy & Chapman was commissioned to re-brand ‘The Coffee Store’, a boutique coffee roaster based in Auckland, looking at their brand and packaging requirements.

Street appeal

As a brand and creative agency partner, we have worked with House of Travel since 2008, involved with their brand and how it sits within their retail environments nationwide. From press advertising to nationwide campaigns involving creative and digital applications, we have a clear understanding of the brand’s voice in the market. With hands on experience with each of their outlets, we play an integral role in supporting the overall marketing of the brand.

Over 70 years of innovation

With over 70 years of innovation, the beauty of VELUX comes to life in series of crafted media ad’s for local home and architectural publications, featuring their new range of skylights and sun tunnels. Having worked with VELUX for several years, we are engaged to develop all marketing communications, working alongside a very comprehensive brand identity system.

Time to hydrate

Inherently creative and unique to the New Zealand market, Charlie’s required support to launch their new water brand. We worked closely with the team to represent the core brand values of Charlie’s, whilst clearly communicating to all trade the distinct benefits of choosing Charlie’s over any other water brand.

High performance

Development of the brand system and ongoing marketing collateral, thoroughly documented and showcased across multiple applications in which it is seen and used - from performance clothing to collateral and other merchandise. Davy & Chapman worked closely with Rowing New Zealand to deliver a document that captured the essence of this high performance New Zealand brand.

A refreshing approach

Having worked with the Carey team on designing a new prospectus, it was time to reflect this new look and feel across their online communications. We started with a comprehensive project scope for the design and development of their website, whilst working through a visual brand update across all of their printed collateral and suite of marketing communications.
