Our Story

One day back in 2010, a discussion began in a then favoured public house about the possibility of starting a new creative venture that carried a philosophy 'there are no short cuts to any place worth going.' This approach was and remains reflective of how we work with clients.


Like all CMS projects, we looked at the possibilities first; what would be different about us? Why are we doing it? Who will be our customers? The questions kept coming, and the answers became more precise as the subject was pressed and developed. 


We were unanimous that there was a need for a smaller, more agile creative communications company that would support and deliver high value, high calibre marketing services at cost-effective levels. No buying cheap and selling on at an inflated profit; focus must be on high-quality delivery with highly-skilled people. 


The term 'full-service' was never more appropriate to us; we'd all accumulated years of experience in the field. Although from differing backgrounds - creativity, technical proficiency, and service- were clear denominators that helped merge our new company's passion.


Over the years, new and existing clients have approached CMS to work on diverse projects that have stretched and inspired us, from small local start-ups to large companies that required worldwide support. All have been on a journey with us (no short cuts). We believe in putting customer service and the forefront of everything we do. 


Our individual and collective experience, underpinned by a strong associate network, has empowered CMS to successfully champion and brighten brands.


CMS has developed since 2011, but the core values and passions are still the same.
