Driven by good

We founded SHARP in 2009 to find and free the good of every brand we work with. Including our own.

Collaborators at heart

An agency full of talented individuals who feel like an extension of your brand.

Because we see the good in people and value what being, thinking and working together can do.

How we work

We do what we love and we love what we do. Underpinned by three things, aka our Triple Bottom Line.

People

To have a positive impact on employees, family, community, clients and suppliers.

Prosperity

Growing as a business to the benefit of our future and the larger economy.

Agency life

Everyone who works here brings something different to make work a happy place.

Our culture is a product of collaboration with…

Curiosity

Inquisitive minds move us forward, turning what ifs into what’s next. Building from understanding. Reframing the question to discover the answer.

Ownership

We invest ourselves in every challenge, every project, every relationship. The deeper the connection, the bigger the difference we can make.

Courage

The unknown is not to be feared but to be explored. Pioneering new ways of working and discovering new ways of communicating.

Kindness

We let our minds empower us, but our hearts guide us. Because we believe people have value. Doing what is right is what keeps us human.
