Learn about us, before we get to know you.

Hey, I'm Martin Sully — brand designer and owner of Snapper Studio.

I grew up in a village in the UK, went to uni, met a girl, got married and planned a trip to New Zealand. We worked and played in Auckland for over a year. And, in February 2016 we moved to Newcastle, Australia.

Ok, so that's an abbreviated version of my life so far. I've spent twelve years working in brand design agencies, design studios, publishing and marketing agencies. Working with clients you dream about like Ferrari, Major League Baseball and MJ (yep, actual MJ) to name a few. 

I was surrounded by brilliant photographers, designers, copywriters and strategists. Crafting brand stories and putting everything into projects that made a difference.

Life in the agency world is hard — uncompromising deadlines, no sleep, pitches against colleagues & poor customer service are normal.

It lit a fire in me to create a branding and design studio that was the opposite. An anti-studio studio. Where flexibility, collaboration and excellent customer service are normal. 

We collaborate with you to deliver brands that captivate your audience. We share all our knowledge and passion with you. We get all the little details just right. We sleep – to recharge our creativity. We are not your usual studio.

Much love, Martin x

Our values


We put people first.


We don’t stifle creativity.

We care about you, your team and ours. We'll give you all the support we can while allowing our team to flourish – which allows them to produce their best work for you.

Tight deadlines, cramp creativity. We work flexibly and remotely, so if you want to work in your underwear, that’s ok. No judgement. Working until 2am is also not normal.


We’re passionate about your projects.

We are passionate about working on projects that make an impact and love partnering with people who are excited about their work, are open-minded and value what we do.


We are always hands-on!

We love diving into your brand. You’re a chef? We'll chop together. A gym? Get us moving! When we understand the customer experience we can offer the best solutions!

Communication is key. We are always looking for improvements, constantly perfecting our methods and learning how to better serve your needs. We aim to make an incredible team.


We keep it open, honest and simple.
