Not Jobs. Careers.

"This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being a force of nature instead of a feverish, selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy.

I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work the more I live. I rejoice in life for its own sake. Life is no “brief candle” for me. It is a sort of splendid torch which I have got hold of for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations."

George Bernard Shaw

Our Core Values

New North was born from a desire to help companies succeed.

From day one, nothing has been more important than helping our clients break free of old paradigms and chart new paths forward to growth. We focus on results, we avoid jargon, and we seek transparency. That’s the spirit behind each of our core values.

These are more than just catchy slogans. Our values are words we live by. They permeate everything we do as a company.


Core Value:
Do the right thing.

You can’t trust someone you barely know. Trust is something that has to be earned and delivered on time and time again. And the key to this is to do the right thing - every time. The right thing might not be easy, it might not be cheap, and it might not be in the contract, but it’s what is needed. It might be a hard conversation about a business model that doesn’t work, or realizing that we have to start over to get it right. We’ve got stories; some are too hard to tell, and some are the basis of 12-year client relationships. Yet in every case, doing the right thing is something we decide every morning at 9am when we open our doors. It continues all day, every day. It’s become part of who we are.


Core Value:
Be responsive.

Being alone is tough. Growing a business might mean long nights and sweat equity, but it should not mean that you have to go it alone. We know; we’ve been there. We’ve always thrived working with clients who have a passion that matches ours. It’s made our work less like work, and more like being there to see our clients’ dreams come to life. We’ve always promised to be there every step of the way, from dream to destination. That’s just how we do it. Email, texts, calls, whatever – we’re with you to make it happen.


Core Value:
Be teachable.

We know a lot, but we don’t know it all - sorry. We’ve learned early on that working with our clients is a partnership. Our experience and our ongoing learning are all focused on bringing more to the table each time we work with a client. Every day, every meeting, every campaign, we strive to build on our momentum for success. Our clients are brilliant in their own right, and when we work with clients who know their stuff, the combination can set the world on fire. We strive to never get ahead of ourselves, knowing that there is something new to learn around every corner.


Core Value:
Work passionately.

Nothing great has ever been accomplished by people who don’t care. Impacts are made by people doing what they love – and we love what we do. We believe helping businesses grow through marketing matters, and we want to do it as well as we possibly can. Yet we also strive to maintain a healthy perspective on our work: to make sure it remains a purpose-driven love and doesn’t become an unhealthy burden. We believe in the value of rest; we also believe that passion makes hard work easy. It’s what drives us to share ideas, solve problems, and create results. And it just might set the world on fire.


Core Value:
Make it a "9."

Winston Churchill once said, "Perfection is the enemy of progress." This value is our commitment to progress toward excellence. It’s also a reminder that chasing some subjective perspective of perfection leads to failure. To make work a “9”, we have to define the goal of each piece of work. Only then can we create something that’s as good as it can possibly be. We’re committed to providing the most value for our clients rather than deliberating on degrees of subjective perfection. We’re committed to avoiding waste. Most of all, we’re committed to getting the right results – again and again.
