Story of 2 Cows
Boomtown’s founder didn’t see his only two assets as cows, but rather as the possibility of far more. The cows were sold to raise money for the company’s first computer. And so Boomtown was born, a story about seeing what could be, rather than what is, a story of courage.
We live this story every day and in every brand we touch. We delve into what drives the modern consumer and specialise in connecting brands with them. From mechanics to sales, a deep understanding of the target market, to connecting with consumers through culturally relevant insights. That’s what sets us apart. Our thinking is underpinned by a research-driven strategic platform brought to life through original, brand led creativity that delivers results.
We see what could be rather than what is through a brave collaboration of our strong, multidisciplinary team that constantly pushes the boundaries. Why? Because growth does not come from a place of comfort, growth never comes from contentment, we know that fortune favours the brave, and that fear kills more great ideas than failure ever will, so we challenge and change the status quo with courageous creative solutions that deliver radical growth. We always choose courage over comfort.
