About Us

There’s Method in Our Madness

We are an integrated digital marketing agency.

And we are maniacally, proudly independent.

Not because we’re lone wolves, but because it frees us up to collaborate with you. And collaboration is where the genius happens.

Your needs, our custom solutions.

Your growth, our constant measuring, assessing, and adjusting.

Your ideas, our creativity and experimentation.

Your challenges, our listening ear.

Your problems, our bloody huge flame thrower.

“We’ll always shout “Eureka!” – and pop the champagne corks – together.”  Ian Hopkinson

Who is the Mad Scientist?

When you come and visit us in the lab, you won’t see him anywhere, but you’ll feel his presence everywhere.

The result of Andrew Radics and Ian Hopkinson’s partnership and collaboration. Into the test tube went the science: Andrew’s exacting, analytical, logical approach. Then, in went the madness: Ian’s passion, creativity, and technical expertise. The result wasn’t just an integrated digital marketing agency – it was a way of thinking, and being.

Independent.

Collaborative.

Inquisitive and experimental.

Ethical.

Knowledgeable.

And heaps of fun. Because just like with other volatile substances (some of which we’re particularly fond of, especially if they’re coloured red) that’s what happens when those creative fumes fly.
