Founded on July 1, 2003 as Cowley Advertising, our business aimed to deliver advertising support to local businesses. We were committed to achieving results for clients through a focus on 'hard working ads', and we grew rapidly.
Offering a one-stop advertising shop, the business over time has grown to offer increased marketing and communication services to clients including corporate design, creative design, printing, promotional products, web development, outdoor advertising and more.
In July 2010, we changed our business trading name to Zest. This change resulted from an increasing focus and growth of the design and web departments. Our new identity and brand offers a fresh new approach to an exciting long term future.
