Our Story


Mint Design started in 2010 with $30,000 in the bank and a dream to make digital marketing more transparent. Back then, cowboys in our sector were as common as road cones in Christchurch.

A Reputation is Born

What began as primarily a web design company quickly grew. After we built our clients their websites, they wanted more.

We responded by launching a full suite of online marketing services. Meanwhile, we quickly built a reputation as a solid provider who meets deadlines, answers the phone when it rings, and genuinely gives a damn about our clients’ business success.

Friends in High Places: A Strengthened Relationship with Google

In 2015, following a 12 month tendering process, Google offered us an exclusive contract to be their sole agency in New Zealand to re-sell Google Street View | Trusted services.

Disbelief was the first emotion to strike. We were over the moon! Emotions were then set aside as the team braced for our biggest growth period yet.

The Trophies: Becoming an Award Winning Agency

Starting in 2016, we were nominated for and won a number of awards and accolades.

The free PR was loud and plentiful, the awards dinners served delicious wine and the trophies look great in the office. However, the best part of all of our public success in 2016, was how proud the team was. There’s nothing quite like hard work paying off, don’t ya think?

Securing Our Spot AS A TOP PERFORMING Google Partner Worldwide

In 2017, we earned the highest accolade that can be bestowed on a Google Partner when we were awarded the Premier Partners Award.

There are two ways you can earn this status:

Be a huge media company with a monstrous amount of money going through your account.

Be a small agency and earn the badge based on client retention and the results you get for clients.

You guessed it, we got by on our results, a win we’re enormously proud of. We work hard every day to get results for our clients and maintain this status.

The Key To Our Success? Living and Breathing Our Core Values

Throughout our ups and downs, the constant steady has been our unapologetic upholding of our core values.

The values hold true during recruitment drives (if you don’t align, you’re out), strategic planning and decision making, and as we go about our everyday tasks.
