our missionthe power of teamwork
Working with businesses to develop and nurture their brand stories, brand equity, and business growth, through creative and strategic design solutions.
once upon a time...and then
Almost 2 decades ago, Jodie Berndt and Shari Krome created Tonic Advertising & Design from a humble beach house in Coolum Beach on the Sunshine Coast.
Combining larger agency experience from their earlier years when in Brisbane and London, and 20 years as Tonic, both women share their knowledge, sound business acumen, and creativity with a myriad of businesses from Byron Bay, Gold Coast, Brisbane, Sunshine Coast as far north as Hamilton Island and Darwin.
To this day, still working from a beach house, Jodie and Shari continue to underpin their business with high quality customer service and unique creative solutions whilst valuing each and every client for their individuality and uniqueness – no cookie cutter creative here.
Focus on what you do best,we'll make you look good doing it
Our company has worked with Tonic Advertising and Design on a number of occasions and they have become our ‘go to’ partners when we need creative and distinctive material.
Jodie and Shari are very professional and have a wonderful ability to quickly understand our business, design with our unique needs in mind, and guide us through the journey from concept to creation.

We highly recommend Tonic Advertising for any small or large business as these ladies really do deliver a personalised touch. We were starting up a new business and needed the whole package – we invested in the full proposal of logo design & brand identity, website design with online booking system. Professional image with accurate market information that they researched and created to deliver who and what we are all about.
With a new and modern look our competitors are certainly shaken. Well worth the investment as it gave us great returns, in just 7 weeks we received 90 bookings and we went from feeling overwhelmed on how to start, to an easy transition where we were up and running making money.
Thank you so much for everything that you have done for our start-up and for the continued support, prompts, and tips on how to keep our business at the top of Google search and in the game.

After reviewing many design houses I chose Tonic Advertising and Design to assist us with the re-branding of our business. We required a logo design and a new website.
Jodie and Shari were exceptional to deal with right from our initial design brief they understood exactly what we had visioned and we could not be happier with the end result. Thank you, Jodie and Shari! We highly recommend your design services.

We used the services of Tonic to produce a promotional video clip for our business on the one hand and to assist us with our marketing plan on the other. The Tonic team was amazing to work with, everyone loves the end video (especially us!), and we’d readily recommend Tonic to anyone looking for strategic and tactical marketing work to be done to advance and boost their business.

Have worked with the girls at Tonic for about 9 years and cannot begin to say what a positive experience it has been. We have gone from amateurs in the advertising arena to a well-shaped professional campaign.
Jodie and Shari excel in all they do and are also quick to get the job done even when given unrealistic timelines. When thinking content, marketing, and advertising we always think Tonic!!

Tonic initiated great ideas and artwork for us to consider, to ensure that our business branding would stand out with a unique look and renewed energy. Everything Tonic has produced for us, including print advertising, web design and television advertising has been outstanding and I contribute a greater awareness of our customers in the great benefits and services we provide and increased sales is due to the talents of Tonic Advertising.

Tonic is a key business partner for Polymetals Mining – the presentation of our image and reputation has been critical as we moved from a private to a publicly listed company. Jodie and Shari’s talents have greatly assisted the design and development of our Prospectus, inaugural Annual Report, and our other marketing material. Their ability to understand the nuances of our business, their creative thinking, and their capacity to meet unrealistic deadlines with grace and humour, ensures a great working relationship that I highly recommend to others.

Thank you so much for everything that you have done for our office. With all the other jobs that I have to do to run this business, knowing that we had you guys that we could rely on and be there to check in on us without even asking always made us feel like you really did have our back.

From the initial consultation to the final product, we have found Tonic Advertising and Design to be very professional. They worked closely with us to present and perfect a new and improved website that truly reflected our product and services. We have noted a significant difference in the quality of the calls we now receive for our services. Our website has been a huge success and a very worthwhile investment. We would not hesitate to use them again or recommend their services.
