Where we began.
ESME Creative began as a part-time venture in 2016 to support community organisations to develop their branding. Organically, ESME Creative expanded to support small and medium businesses, and became a viable business in its own right. Today, we have a range of clients on our books from construction firms, to crafters, to florists. We've not lost our roots and support a range of community and charitable organisations through a range of pro-bono and reduced price projects.
We're often asked where our name comes from. The 'E' refers to getting online and the 'SME' is a term to mean small and medium enterprises. Bringing the two together in our name symbolises 'getting small businesses online'.
