About

STRATEGIC AND
CONCEPTUAL CREATIVITY

We like to think beyond the elements
and individual tasks to pinpoint opportunities, breathe life into ideas,
create incisive communication design and develop strategic and creative campaigns.

Our greatest strength is the ability to
create, develop and execute successful communications, delivering positive results for our clients.

With over 20 years experience in the design and communication industry, Creative Director, David Edwards has had the pleasure of working with some of the world’s best brands in both the UK and Australia.

The cloud on the right sums up our creative ethos, and is reflected in our company logo. Strategy, design, and creativity are the core elements of any successful piece of visual communication. Each element need to work independently as well as together to ensure successful results.

Chimera is a design and communications agency with a client list, experience and portfolio of successful projects that position us as a leader in the creative market.
We act as creative catalysts to bring a fresh approach
to thinking and design.

Branding

Branding is about putting a human face and personality to a company's expertise. Our creative process can build a whole new image from scratch or redefine your appearance in the marketplace.

In a nutshell, we are creative thinkers with international experience at top agencies in design, advertising, branding

and all sorts of visual communication within B2B and B2C environments. While we're known for our creative ability, there’s more to Chimera than that. We’re inventors, creators and storytellers. We're obsessed with craft and polish things until they shine. But be assured. Behind the magic, we demonstrate the “science” behind creative solutions so that, you, the client is involved in every step of the way.
