KK&O Agency officially launches on the Gold Coast, with three of the city’s industry heavyweights joining forces and setting up shop at COHORT.
With an impressive list of foundation clients, KK&O. will offer marketing strategy, brand consulting, design, communications and digital marketing, with a focus on helping Gold Coast businesses create meaningful campaigns that deliver lasting business impact.
KK&O. launches with a highly experienced executive team, with founders Ty Kudla, Rebbecca Kent and Kat Orchard no strangers to operating businesses on the glitter strip.
With one in five Gold Coasters working for themselves, the trio are familiar faces in business circles; with 40/40 Creative, Randy Wallhole and The Pineapple Republic (formally Pineapple PR), just a few of their past business ventures.
The emerging entrepreneur scene is one of the driving forces behind the creation of the agency, with Ty sharing that KK&O. isn’t in the business of providing cookie-cutter solutions to their client base.
“The Gold Coast is absolutely pumping with energy and opportunity, and we want to be a part of that narrative,” says Ty.
Co-Founder Beck echoes the need for the Gold Coast to have access to an agency that understands the business landscape and provides high level brand incubation, marketing consultation and communication strategies, all under the one banner.
“There has definitely been a shift from small-business mentality to an entrepreneurial mindset, and the need for more full-service agencies offering complete creative solutions is crucial to the ongoing growth of business on the Gold Coast,” Rebbecca says.
“Agency is a less-risky solution for businesses who need experts in campaign delivery; it removes the painful process of finding the right candidate and the stress of the financial outlay that hiring internal staff brings,” says Ty.
With significant investment into the infrastructure in supporting entrepreneurs, KK&O. are based out of COHORT; the brand new innovation and coworking space located in the Health and Knowledge Precinct in Southport.
“Being amongst innovators and cultural shapeshifters is inspiring. Working amongst people who are passionate and have good energy feeds our drive to collaborate with some of the Coasts thought leaders. There’s enough work to go around and we’re ready to give this all we’ve got” says Kat.
