Saltwater Collective was born from the frustrations of two specialists at opposite ends of the creative process. Co-founder, Pete Sutton was working as a senior marketing consultant in a leading strategy agency, dreaming about greater quality and cohesion in creative execution. His co-founder, Zoe Scott was working in a successful design agency but wished for a stronger unity of design, strategy and purposeful creative. So they joined forces and combined their skill-sets into a streamlined offering, delivering purpose driven marketing and creative that is intrinsically tied to business objectives. It’s a refreshing change.
Famous for her down-to-earth nature, talent and efficiency, Zoe is a versatile creative director with over 15 years’ experience. With her team of talented designers, she brings big visual impact to brand through creative flair and smart, uncomplicated design.

We’re saving brands, not lives, so we do our best to maintain a positive attitude and have a little fun along the way.
Passion & enthusiasm
Building a brand is fun but it’s still work and it takes time. Passion is the fuel you need to keep going when the going gets tough. If you’re not passionate about your brand, we can’t spark the flame for you.
A strategic approach
The boring stuff we know, but it’s what makes us different. To get epic results, we need to know intrinsically what you’re trying to achieve, why and how we’ll know when we’ve got there.
If you really want to achieve serious marketing goals, you’re going to need to invest some cash. That’s just the way it is. We don’t do things by halves so when we commit to a new project, we seriously deliver.
