About Talisman

Talisman is a design studio who build better brands and experiences, to elevate and empower organisations.

What we do and why we do it.

Talisman helps clients overcome business barriers, stand out from the crowd, and gain significant long term value through design and strategic thinking.

We are passionate about partnering with good people and organisations who are trying to make the world a better place. We help our partners move forward by providing exceptional custom designed solutions, which enable people to get the most from their brand, products and services – including themselves.

Our skills are specific and fine-tuned. We are specialists, not generalists. We believe in the power of design, and we thrive on helping good people and organisations succeed.

What makes us different.

We bring the A-team to every project.

Instead of employing full-time staff, we examine your project's needs and summon a super team – handpicked from some of the best talent in the industry – to collaborate. Using our tight-knit network of trusted 'Talismans', we're able to ensure we have the best person for each role in your project. And unlike other agencies and studios, you only pay for the expertise of those who work on your project.

We only take on projects we can add value to.

We don't take on projects such as building a website that's already been designed, because we probably can't add much value for you. Instead, we love helping our customers work through problems they can't solve on their own, while maximising the value we can add for them along the way.

We don't charge by time or compete on price.

Instead, we charge for our expertise, finding a fixed price that’s right for both you and us. We’ll only take on work if we’re convinced that your initial investment will be worthwhile – and we're confident that it will make you more money than you’ll spend.
