Our business is structured to deliver outstanding results, through creative thinking, in-depth client knowledge via proven and robust production processes and working practices. We believe in delivering the very highest quality publications and sites which reflect and target their readership, backed up by a professional, dedicated and enthusiastic team whose remit is to understand your business and meet your needs in a flexible and can-do way.


Wildfire is expert at every stage of magazine production, from conception and planning, through to editorial direction, look and feel, and marketing campaigns. Whether regular contract work, or a one-off project, Wildfire will apply its expertise and hard work to every job, big or small.


Social media is a marketing and communications channel in its own right. Mastering the major platforms such as Facebook and Twitter is now more important than ever. Wildfire understands the nuances, the trends and the fast-paced nature of this new community, and can deliver strategies and campaigns that unfailingly fall on the right side of digital sensibility.


Wildfire is proof that print isn't dead, but it no longer stands alone – digital media's interactivity, instant delivery and intuitiveness complements the depth and clarity of print. Wildfire has eagerly and expertly developed its multimedia strategy by creating and managing online audiences and engagement, providing a full range of online services to help nurture and strengthen customer relations. We also provide a full SEO service - as we run a number of our own sites as well as sites for third parties and produce a huge amount of content, we have become extremely adept at making sure websites and their content get noticed through the art of SEO


Content is king. We have become experts in producing written and rich media content both for ourselves and for our clients


We have worked with industry organisations for many years, helping them to organise and publicise their events. Examples include the CUBO awards and the annual ISE exhibition. We have been so successful in this field that we are now launching our own showpiece event: the Young Leader Awards
