CLIENT TESTIMONIALS


"The final product here is unparalleled. Thanks for being an incredible partner from start to finish!”

KIND WORDS FROM
Raechelle Hoki, Agency Director

Dollar Shave Club, Los Angeles

 

 

 

 

 


"To turn around the quality of output in the time you guys had is nothing short of a miracle and not something that is lost on us.”

KIND WORDS FROM
Matt Knapp, Creative Director

Dollar Shave Club, Los Angeles

 

 

 

 

 


"The Craft Shop have created a niche for themselves as a resource which provides work of the highest quality which agencies would struggle to produce in house. Great ideas need an expert hand to finish them and often agencies do not have those means either through weight of work or the financial drain of having skills that would only be used some of the time. Also, the Craft Shop are pretty good guys.”

KIND WORDS FROM
Paul Catmur, Managing Partner & Executive Creative Director

Barnes Catmur & Friends

 

 

 

 

 


"I’ve worked with the boys at The Craft Shop on several jobs, they always bring something new to the party. Having been part of a creative department in their past lives has set them in good stead to understand what you’re trying to do, and then make it better. Always a pleasure and never a chore.”

KIND WORDS FROM
Mick Stalker, Creative Director

"I go to Gelatomassi Gelato shop in Newtown for delicious home-made gelato, Rozelle’s Darling Fresh Fruit and veg for the freshest fruit and veg and The Craft Shop Auckland for incredibly hand-crafted typography and design stuff.”
