HGB ticks over 10 years of meaningful experiences

By Karen Cousins, Apr 3 2023

The bubbles are flowing as we tick off a major milestone, creating meaningful experiences for their clients for a decade.

Harcourt and Gage-Brown Limited (HGB) was established on 1 April 2013 by our directors and founders Kylie Harcourt and Jacqui Gage-Brown.

Kylie said the last ten years had seen a huge amount of change.

“Over the past decade, there has been a major shift from print advertising to digital, we have seen clients move from dipping their toes into social media to managing multiple channels, and video is now part of our daily production. It’s exciting to be a part of this changing marketing landscape.”

“For HGB, we’ve had huge expansion moving into the digital space, have taken home the coveted 2016 Waikato Chamber of Commerce emerging business of the year award, raised our families, and we’ve partnered with some of the most iconic brands across the Waikato.”

One of those iconic partnerships is with Hamilton-based Urban Homes, who continues to flourish. Other key partnerships benefitting from the HGB experience include Braemar Hospital, Health 2000, Demolition Traders and Roommate Cabins.

“What we love about partnering with these organisations is truly understanding their DNA, the essence of what makes them unique, and coming up with creative and refreshing ways to articulate that through strategic marketing efforts,” added Kylie.

We were a key catalyst in evolving the Lugtons, IT Partners, Lightwire, True Colours, Waikato Rugby, Tompkins Wake, Jersey NZ, WatchU, Better Eggs and Sport Waikato brands.

“At HGB, our aim is to create meaningful experiences, for ourselves and for our clients. We are unapologetically passionate about creating brands and marketing communications for the right reasons and we’re so proud of what we’ve achieved over the past 10 years,” said Jacqui.

“Our whole team is focused on delivering results for our clients and this is what truly makes us stand apart from most other marketing agencies. We can’t wait to see what the next ten years will bring.”

As a full-service agency we have developed in leaps and bounds, growing from a team of two to a team of 15, specialising in design, brand creation and positioning, strategic marketing, paid and organic digital and social media advertising, website development, communications, fundraising sponsorships and more.
