Kia ora. Welcome to Bold HQ.

Storytelling. Quality. Sense of place.

We operate in the sweet spot where these three meet.

If you're in the wine, food, tourism or hospitality industries or if you manufacture artisanal products, you'll know how vital these three elements are to your brand.

Bold circles

Why choose Bold?

Because too many brilliant businesses sell themselves short with under-performing website content and technical documents no-one wants to read. We can help with that.

We follow one guiding principle: to leave things better than we found them. This covers everything, from how we farm to how we conduct business.

And we're committed to sustainability. We use digital technology to work remotely wherever possible and we're constantly looking for ways to minimise our environmental footprint.

We're going to love working together if your venture:

refuses to be pigeon-holed

insists on doing things differently

cares about quality

is convinced that carving out its own unique path is the only sustainable way to flourish

Niki: Creative genius

Niki hails from Christchurch. A former New Zealand champion dancer, she still occasionally struts her stuff in the kitchen.

Niki's always been a writer. She discovered blogging long before it became a thing and took to it like a duck to another duck.  Her humour blog, Hot Water, was nominated Best Australian Weblog for three consecutive years. This somehow led to a job as a radio presenter with the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, which was creatively satisfying and a hell of a lot of fun.

After returning to New Zealand in 2011, Niki freelanced as a copywriter, content marketer and journalist. She's a qualified photographer and is currently learning karate and te reo Māori.

Niki loves the creative process. Her mission is to inspire other people to love it too so they can use it to enrich their lives and help their businesses prosper.

Ewan: Technical wizard

Quite possibly the most likeable man on the planet, Ewan grew up in Scotland. He left the Land of the Thistle with a Masters degree in Manufacturing Sciences and Engineering from Strathclyde University.

He spent the next 25 years in various engineering and construction project management roles in the UK, USA, Australia and New Zealand, with budgets ranging from AUD1 million to AUD15 billion.

After returning to New Zealand he navigated a massive learning curve to become a farmer and went on to work in the Marlborough wine industry for four years.

Ewan is a highly-skilled technical writer with years of experience to draw on. He loves making complex procedures simple and using as few words as possible. This makes him an enduring mystery to his wife.
