How we work

Committed to regeneration and ethical marketing

 

It’s time the world moves away from the traditional, profit-only way of doing marketing. That’s why we team up with organisations who care, amplifying their impact while advocating for regenerative marketing practices.

Our collaboration – a lasting partnership

 

We’re in it for the long term. We dive into your world, ensuring our solutions match your purpose, goals and values. Afterwards, we keep in touch to make sure things are rolling according to the plan.

Cross-sector experience and fresh ideas

 

Having worked across impact-first sectors and delved into their dynamics, we quickly understand how things work and love a change-making vision. We’re avid learners, and our ability to connect the dots gives rise to unique, innovative ideas.

Synergy in strategy and operations

 

We’re your partners in strategy and action. We zoom out for the big picture and provide strategic advice; then we roll up our sleeves to ensure a smooth implementation and continuous improvement.

Focused on quality and innovation

 

We’re committed to providing you with a top-notch experience. By staying updated on regenerative marketing trends, seeking fresh ideas, and assessing how they fit into your world, we make your job easier and your organisation sharper.

Our story

Back in 2011, Laura Tufis – founder of The Marketing Palette – moved away from a brief stint in the corporate world after quickly becoming disillusioned with the profit-only nature of the work. Seeking a more meaningful path, she joined the impact space and got immersed in sectors like education, clean energy, gender equality, tech for good and more.

The Marketing Palette took root in 2013, when Laura started noticing a serious need for stronger marketing practices across purpose-led organisations. So she kicked off the consultancy as a project alongside her job, aiming to support a wider range of companies in putting more good out into the world. This continued on and off until 2020.

Throughout this journey, it became evident that for the impact space to thrive, we need to break free from the traditional marketing models we’ve been used to and re-imagine a new paradigm.

A clear mission emerged: transforming marketing for impact by embracing a regenerative approach – one that draws inspiration from nature and actively restores ecosystems and communities.

In September 2020, Laura turned The Marketing Palette into a full-time consultancy. Today, we are evolving into a network of value-aligned independent professionals, bringing expertise in impact-first marketing, communications, design and web development so that together, we can address the larger scope of your outreach needs.
