We are not a bakery. Instead, we rally communities and brands to do good stuff, ultimately working to make Aotearoa New Zealand a more creative place.

Our clients are big and small, local and national. We're the engine behind the Arts Foundation Te Tumu Toi, Boosted and the Kiwibank New Zealander of the Year Awards. Whether you’re a business who wants to give back, or a cause that needs a community, we bring you energy and momentum that’s real. 

Our team of strategists can help you define your community impact, plan an engagement or funding campaign, or create a communications and engagement strategy that brings your 'own cool' to life. Then our writers, PR specialists, event wranglers and digital marketing ninjas will deliver the results. Yep. We're famous for delivering.

Based in Ōtautahi Christchurch with a team in Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland, we work all over Aotearoa to champion projects and people that have the power to do good.  

B Corp

Brown Bread is a certified B Corp – a company using the power of business as well as the power of creativity to solve social and environmental problems.  Whether our clients are arts-based or not, our mahi is a vehicle to have impact on the arts; whether it's growing artists or the arts' visibility for all New Zealanders, or driving wellbeing, identity and prosperity for our communities through creativity.

Over the past nine years, we've gifted two public sculptures to Ōtautahi Christchurch, and each month we nominate a team member to gift financial support to arts projects on Boosted.org.nz.  We also donate 30% of our time through pro bono services to our arts clients.

BCorp. They keep us honest. Google it!
