We listen, then create.

Purpose is not just what you do, its who you are.

At Shy-red, we use a range of tools to help start-ups, NGO’s and social programmes to work smarter, innovate, communicate better and fulfil their purpose.

Increasing their visibility, reach and impact.

Driven by Purpose. Generating Impact.

We re-align programmes to achieve their purpose. Helping them to operate and communicate with consistency, effectiveness and purpose. 

Growing a social programme is a long-term process.

Which is why most of our initial clients are still with us today. And our only form of advertising is word of mouth.


We listen. To understand the status quo.


Our Toolbox.  And what to build/ disrupt/ create.


Did it work. What worked. How often. 


How do we build on what worked. And innovate.
