Global Brands, Products & Services
Bringing complementary strengths across strategy, creative, tech and delivery, we have a bond that lives beyond the studio and drives our vision. We are thinkers, makers and innovators fuelled by our passion for connected digital experiences, we think beyond the bounds of just a digital agency. We’re energised by change and how it can help businesses and brands forge new paths forward.
In the right hands, design and technology can be a force for positive change, and this conviction drives us forward. Nightjar was created by three friends with a desire to do things better. The process, the work, and the enjoyment of both. Our digital-first approach to branding and design fuses seamlessly with our technical capabilities, creating a design studio where the work is as innovative as it is visually pleasing.
Christine manages expectations and delivery of all Nightjar projects and ensures the smooth running of the studio. She moves fast (and breaks things), but always has time to listen, evaluate and improve. She prides herself on managing engaged and high-performing digital teams who are crucial to the success of the business, and is a champion of process to achieve optimum outcomes for Nightjar's clients.MANAGING DIRECTOR

A deep dive into the problem definition, we invest time up front in research and stakeholder engagement to ensure everyone is on the same page. Agreeing on the desired future state of your brand, product or business, we uncover digital opportunities for the end-to-end experience.
User journeys and rapid prototyping helps us imagine and design the entire connected experience, then test it in the real world. Whether a digital product, an eComm experience, or a content site, Nightjar architect solutions for now, and the future, setting a roadmap for the post-launch horizon.
We design brand systems to thrive in a digital-first realm. Our process embraces today’s culture of speed and disruption, but we never forget there’s humans at the heart of it all. Inclusive, accessible and emotive - our design philosophy is to engage, and make life that little bit friendlier.
A proven tech stack, tight integrations, strict security protocols and rigorous testing characterise a Nightjar build. Our API driven, headless approach sets the foundation for whatever the future holds, allowing you to scale, pivot and diversify - taking your data with you.
