What Is Tentmaker Creative?

Tentmaker Creative provides a range of creative services to help you tell your story. I build websites, create content, work with social media and develop resources that can help to make your communications look good, and work well. While web design and photography are the main components of my workload, I also work across a range of other disciplines to help bring your story to life. When needed I can also suggest a range of other creative professionals to help deliver the resources you need on time, and on budget.

Who Is Tentmaker Creative

Tentmaker is run by Roddy Mackay, a creative freelancer with 14 years’ experience of working in creative communications.

Over the last ten years especially, I’ve seen how the digital revolution has led to opportunities for some clients, and confusion for others.

I believe that effective communications are all about making your resources work together, and supporting one another. While key assets such as a strong website, great writing or outstanding visuals are valuable – they are more effective when working in tandem.

I build websites that look good, and work well – because who wants one and not the other? I also support clients in seeing the bigger picture, working with social media, brand identity, marketing, design and visuals.

The Tentmaker Process

Learn the Environment

Clear communications starts with knowing what you want to say, and who you’re trying to say it to.

By working to understand your environment I can better advise you on how to get your message out, and heard.

Research takes time – but it’s one of your best investments.

See the Bigger Picture

Communicating in the 21st century is rarely about doing one thing well.

Working accross a variety of platforms and trying to engage multiple audiences can be hard work.

I’ll help you develop a plan to bring your communications into one bigger picture, with each piece of the jigsaw working to support the other.

Solutions, Sourced

Helping bring your ideas to life through a creative approach.

I’ll work through a variety of options to explain how we can bring some of your ideas into a reality.

Working across a range of platforms I’ll create the finished work or help connect you to other creatives who can.
