About the Bigger Boat

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. - Mark Twain.

We couldn't have put it better ourselves and that's why Doug, Andy & Lee founded The Bigger Boat. In five years we've moved to bigger offices, won some fantastic new clients, doubled in size (not waist lines!), generated loads of business for our clients and launched a lot of websites! If you don't believe us, check out our projects, the proof's in the pudding.

We bring strategic thinking, awesome creative and award winning digital know how to every project. We know our onions, tell it like it is, eat too much pizza, drink too much coffee, but most importantly, our crew and clients are happy! But don't just take our word for it, check out our RAR agency report to see what our clients think.
