We’ll start by letting you in on a little not-so-secret. The trick to effective advertising isn’t wads of cash – it’s creativity. Ask any leading brand around the world and they’ll tell you; campaigns that drive strong word-of-mouth and social sharing register the highest commercial gains and brand awareness. And they do it with much smaller budgets.


We are a boutique advertising agency based in Wanaka, helping businesses and non-profit organisations unlock their gold, stand out from the crowd and engage their audience – without those big agency fees.  


All we need from you is the courage to be bold. To not just interrupt what people are interested in, but be what people are interested in. To win minds, hearts and imaginations and build a community around your brand.


The Muster offers two marketing strategy and design development workshops that are registered with the Management Capability Development Voucher Fund.

Small businesses may qualify for vouchers to help pay for services such as training workshops, courses and coaching that build the management capabilities of their owners and key managers. To find out more and sign up your business, head to the Regional Business Partner Network hub here.

"I was lucky enough to be introduced to The Muster during the early stages of our project. I was impressed by their ability to really listen and understand what Bike Glendhu was about. This, along with their creative writing talents, meant that they were able to offer valuable input to our process.

I found the team to be very genuine while maintaining a professional approach to the work required. Their ability to take our notes and transform them exceeds our expectations every time. I look forward to working with The Muster again soon."

We engaged The Muster to create a strategic brand document and full rebrand of the business including website, print collateral, signage, social media, as well as print and online advertising.


The Muster managed an enormous output over a relatively tight timeframe, and did so with a great deal of gusto, personalised support and transparency. Zoe's copywriting expertise was invaluable, as was her digital marketing know-how. 


The outcome for us has been a wonderfully received new brand. We have a clear path of measurable marketing operations, and an authentic and fresh brand platform that our community and visitors can identify with.


We will continue to engage The Muster’s services as we further develop our business and could not recommend them highly enough.

"We established Utility in 2017 following an awkward break away from our previous, long time employers. We needed a brand strategy that could support and embolden our emerging values, and belief that we could do things differently and better.


Muster brought authentic empathy to our business needs. They walked us through the branding process at a pace we understood and quickly gained our confidence.  We were able to give them the autonomy and creative license needed to create something awesome. And that's exactly what they did!"
