We’re exactly what you’re looking for in a communications partner. Especially if you’re looking for everything. 

Bastion is a fully independent, fully integrated, fully passionate marketing communications resource where you’ll find everything under one roof. 

Our cohesive team of divergent, talented leaders oversee a breadth of services, from social media to data analytics to web, app and content production, putting us in the unique position of looking at your marketing challenge from every angle, without bias or baggage.   

Our solutions are inherently holistic in nature. The only agenda is getting your brand to its best place. That’s it. 

We have built Bastion over more than a decade by bringing together world class independent agencies and experts, with complementary skillsets, to deliver a truly integrated communications service offering to our clients.

We are a business that thinks wide across the breadth of communications disciplines, with deep expertise in each service offering we deliver. Each of our specialty services are delivered by an industry renowned Managing Director with a team of experts in their field.

Our clients can choose to work with us in one of our disciplines, or, when the time is right, access our range of communications services to deliver truly integrated campaigns.

Our business is built to deliver clients independent expertise and agility, with true scale and breadth.

Our business is built to think wide.

We live in a world where the networks and technology that underpin our commerce and society, give rise to crises and opportunities for brands on a near daily basis.

We live in a world where narrative is king.

Where brands are remembered for their emotionally compelling, engaging stories.

In this world, if you can’t excel at both, you’ll fail.

You’ll fail to find the right solutions.

So, you need people with divergent yet complimentary mindsets.

Experts that think data, that think creative, code, research, relationships, reputation, experiences and more.

That think wide.
