We liaise with a lot of external contractors in our industry, which can be both rewarding and challenging. One of the best decisions we made was to engage Little Engine to consolidate our branding approach as our company scaled up.

We now have global consistency across all lines of business and platforms, thanks in no small part to the efforts of Little Engine. The process couldn’t have been easier, with the team taking on the role of project lead and providing constant updates regarding progress and cost.

White Stratus, CEO

I have been working with Mark over the past six months in order to evolve and refresh the TMS brand. Mark’s passion for design is evident in how he works and the volume of work he is able to deliver. His advice and creative input have been invaluable during this process.

Jenni Walke

APAC Sales Manager, Team Management Systems

My experience with Mark from Little Engine was amazing! I have no idea when it comes to branding (I am only interested in helping people achieve their best self in health and fitness). Mark held my hand every step of the way. He produced ideas from a series of easy to answer questions that really hit the mark when I saw what my business could look like.

The regular contact and updates I received made me stick to the program without feeling hassled and kept me thinking more creatively. I thoroughly enjoyed the journey of my branding and I would not hesitate to recommend Mark for his excellent service.
