The Creative Collective are a full service creative agency specialising in digital marketing (particularly social media), servicing clients around the world.
Founded in 2007 by Yvette Adams, between 2009 – 2014 the business operated as a franchise with offices on the Gold Coast and Newcastle, NSW.
In late 2013, the decision to centralise all franchised offices, clients and operations was made, and Katrina Lees, previously the Newcastle franchisee, became the business partner of Yvette Adams.
In 2017 the business acquired Fig Creative, an agency previously based in Maleny, Sunshine Coast.
Since the outset of our business, and to this day, we offer website design and development, graphic design & print, PR & marketing, social media, seo & pay per click, plus an extensive range of creative services.
We particularly excel at digital marketing, and have a highly experienced and capable team spread around the world, who work across time zones meaning you can access a talented team, and quick turn arounds.
We are active members of the business community, regularly donating our services on a pro bono basis or in a mentoring capacity to causes we care about.
We are big supporters of Start Up Weekends, regularly providing PR, marketing, social media and mentoring services to these powerful weekend events which take place around the globe, and the Teens Take Control program.
We also actively support the Sunshine Coast’s Silicon Coast group which emerged as a local group for startups, entrepreneurs, marketers, developers and creatives post Startup Weekend Sunshine Coast.
Our director is on the Knowledge & Service Industries Taskforce for Sunshine Coast Council, the Australian Institute of Company Directors Sunshine Coast Committee and is one of the ‘expert panel’ advising on the AICD’s Directing Growth Program.
We contribute to our community regularly by getting involved in fundraising initiatives and offering our services on a pro bono basis. Go to this page to find out more about ourCorporate Social Responsibility initiatives.

Previously our Training Division, we now have a sister company in the form of The Training Collective who offer a wide range of online and offline training across Australia and New Zealand on topics relating to online success. This organisation also boasts an impressive client list. Sometimes clients start with The Creative Collective, and later require training. Some of our clients start with The Training Collective and later require our creative services. The choice is entirely you to you, and largely depends how much time, skills and inclination you have yourself, or within your team, to do the job at hand. We are flexible in our approach, and can work on a consultancy, project or collaborative basis.
