When this grand, private girls’ school set high on the mountain in Brisbane’s inner-west approached nextThursday seeking help to reposition their brand, we grabbed the opportunity with both hands. An inspired new principal armed with an aspiring new vision meant it was time for fresh strategic and creative thinking. Just the kind of magical brief we dream of.


Our agency process began with a thorough deep-dive into the Stuartholme brand and all that it offers. This included extensive discussions and collaboration with many stakeholders – the Executive team, staff, alumna, current parents, prospective parents and students. We left no stone unturned in our quest to understand what makes Stuartholme so special and what needs to change to help them thrive into the future.

Our first creation was a bold new positioning line – Step up to Staurtholme.


It’s a line that encapsulates a new vision of transformative learning, spiritual growth and the drive for excellence shaping life at this unique Sacred Heart school. The line is a welcoming call-to-action, charged with active language and a healthy competitive spirit.


Step up empowers students, teachers and the broader school community to pursue ongoing personal improvement as a pathway to collective, positive change.


Born from the unique physicality of the school’s extraordinary mountain-top campus, Stuartholme is literally a Step up from the surrounding leafy green suburbs (and the competition!)


A cornerstone of nextThursday’s new campaign was the attitude and confidence we injected into every piece of communication. Through our language, words and ideas, we communicated a determination and self-belief that our girls would some day rule the world. We set the bar high and challenged the girls to Step up to meet it.


The agency over-invested untold hours to ensure every aspect of the campaign was beautifully crafted and perfectly presented. From bespoke typography, to intricate colourways and finely-tuned art direction. Why? Because the little things matter. That’s the difference between a good school… and a great school.


It would be hard to overstate the importance of Open Day to a private school in this hotlycontested market. nextThursday developed an efficient and effective creative rollout to maximise exposure of Stuartholme’s Open Day event, which in turn attracted record numbers of students and families to the school.


The Step up to Stuartholme campaign has been an unequivocal success for the school. It isn’t easy bringing so many stakeholders along for the ride and getting consensus on a creative vision for such a school. Our client assures us they couldn’t be happier with the results so far, and an ongoing positive shift in the culture and success of the school continues to build.

The terms:

– creative agency

– advertising agency

– branding agency

– design agency

– brand strategy agency

– logo design agency

– graphic design agency

– video production agency

– social media digital agency

– marketing agency

… can often draw a blank face – what do we actually do?

In short, we’re a full service agency, which means we will use our skills to create engaging and appealing work for businesses and brands of all shapes and sizes, in every stage of their life cycle, from start ups to brands needing reinvention.

A creative agency is commonly made up of designers, developers, PR geniuses, content writers, and account directors.

The great thing about working with an agency like ours is that we’ve got lots of different skillsets, each one is a specialist marketing professional. Each creative professional has something they can each bring to your business, be that a creative design idea, a new approach to social media, or a different marketing strategy.

Services offered can vary and they can be one-off or they could be longer-term campaigns – some lasting months or years.

One thing you can be certain of, these people will never be short of an idea (or ten) to enhance your brand.

Remember, every brand or business needs an identity (graphic design), and creative agencies like us help create knock-out ones!

How to Build your Brand

Your brand is the backbone of your business – you need a Branding Agency.

Get the strategy right and your business will stand out – and who doesn’t want that? You need a Advertising Agency.

We firmly believe that “success starts with an unreasonable idea”. You need a Creative Agency.

Creativity, strategy, and data should come together to create an idea so bold, so ‘out there’, that’s it’s nothing short of genius. THAT is what we do. You need a Brand Strategy Agency.

Our agency can take you through every step needed to boost your business to the next level. We can help you with all of the above.

Let’s Start at Campaign

Your audience is key. They make everything possible, so we ensure they’re respected.

We look to connect with your audience and clients. Not on a superficial level. Through emotion, personalisation and human truths. Whether B2B or B2C our Media Agency will help you reach your audience segments.

It’s always about your audience – start there. Sometimes the best approach is a Direct Marketing idea. Sometimes going big with an above the line campaign reaching a mass market is the best bang for buck. Our Strategy Planners will help you define what will be the best approach to take. R.O.I. isn’t just bang for buck, it also stands for Relevance, Originality and Impact.

Our ideas are big. Your media campaign doesn’t have to be. A brand needs a good idea. They don’t need a big budget. Our Creative Agency can help you with this.

Our projects are bold and give you the best results in Australia. We have the runs on the board and proof!

We may sound confident but we have a strong history of doing just that.

With a team of creative professionals working to create change through different campaigns; traditional advertising, digital, and experimental. We have the tools to take your business to the next level. That’s why you would engage an Advertising Agency of our calibre.


People might tell you, “it’s about being in the right place, at the right time”.

The truth is, there is an art to building a brand. Your brand should capture your audience. You need a Branding Agency.

Your audience should feel something, experience something when they think about your brand. This leads them to engage with your business. A Creative Agency can help you with this.

This experience creates a feeling that your business is different from your competitors, and so a relationship is formed. Brand Strategy is our strength at nextThursday.

If you’re considering a refresh of your brand, a full launch, audits, or style guides, then we have the branding strategies and solutions to make it work for you.

We practice what we preach, we get to know about clients. We engage and come together with you on the project. Delivering the best brand out there for your audience.


A brand without a strategy is like flying blind. You just wouldn’t do it, would you? Not knowing where to look or turn.

Marketing strategies, a design strategy, whatever strategy it is, it’s important. Knowing what direction you want to go in is the best way to tackle business.

Do you know your customers? If not, it’s time to!

Knowing and understanding your customers will help to create an effective marketing strategy for your brand.

It can be common for a business to focus on what they do. Clients don’t buy that, they buy why you do it.

This is what your brand strategy needs to focus on.

We can provide you with the services and team to delve into your customers’ minds and influence them.

From there we work on which channels are going to be the most successful. This could mean mobile app development, social media marketing and advertising, digital or traditional marketing content – or a little bit of everything.

Whatever is best for your brand in Brisbane, we’ll find it!
