Marrowmark is a creativity company founded by I, Sammy Haywood to enable good people to make their presence felt in this world.

In 39 seconds

I'm Sammy.

I spent 15 years in a haze of creative industries from traditional consumer goods all the way to public artworks. Yet, only a very small percentage of those times were spent clarifying and articulating the value of transformative businesses through visuals, which is my sweet spot.

These days, I make visual stories. That’s it. Nothing else. No distractions. Nothing to steal my focus. No kidding myself that I can be good at everything. No trying to conquer the whole world. I just aim to conquer a bit of it.

So each day I come in and make the best visuals I know how. There is a great deal of satisfaction to be gained from making something well, that you know it is going to stand during the test of these times. It makes the hard work and the obsessing over each and every detail worth all the effort. That’s the reward.

Marrowmark is my universe.

All that I love in music, art, nature, and design told visually.

Each vignette offers fragments of half-remembered myths and imaginary landscapes that invite exploration. They are visible soundtracks that you see throughout the day.

Melbourne made, to serve mankind.

Everything is made in the belly of the beast. Melbourne has shaped my life, but I'm here to serve the good people from all over the world.

Many thanks for being here.

It’s a wild world out there, but a tender, beautiful one too, made ever more special by you being part of it.

Here's to the ritual of showing up in the world and making our collective presence known.

Hypothetically asked questions...

Here are some real answers, to save us both a little bit of time.

I just landed on this page, have never heard of you, am not entirely convinced but am willing to give you a shot. Where should I begin reading before I decide to become a do anything else?

Down Arrow

Best thing to do is subscribe to get the Magazine and Momentum Mail newsletter. Anything happening outside of Marrowmark is announced in the newsletters. If you feel like you get enough value from them, there are Momentum Meetings (Office Hours) available each Monday to explore possibilities.

What services do you offer?

Down Arrow

I cover the gambit of presence building (e.g. positioning), messaging (e.g. headline copy), visual identity design (e.g. logos and colors), and web design (UX, UI, and front-end development).

What’s it like to work together?

Down Arrow

I’m extremely organised, and you will know exactly what steps lie ahead of us from day dot. I’m generous with my time and I have no problem hearing criticism or justifying creative decisions.

Can I hire you for strategy/advice only?

Down Arrow

You betcha! Usually my ideation-only work starts with a series of workshops, research (and sometimes customer interviews), and then leads into an ongoing advisory memberships.

How can you justify the price of your GOODS + SERVICES?

Down Arrow

I make every effort to keep prices reasonable for premium creative goods and services, and in comparison to others I are not the most expensive.

Certainly you can pay much less. But my services are grounded in producing visual stories for most of my working and non-working life. Each has a little piece of me in them. The good thing when you make something that lasts, over time an expensive purchase will become great value for money.

I believe these are fair prices for our client and customers to pay given the quality of materials and the craftsmanship that goes into making each piece of media. I don’t charge for the love. That comes unconditionally.

I don’t have any money. Will you work with me?

Down Arrow

Probably not. I occasionally make exceptions for resonant organisations devoted to issues that are important to me—such as free speech, direct democracy, and decentralisation.

What’s your educational background?

Down Arrow

I studied Industrial Design at university before pursuing a variety of business interests in 2017. I’m mostly self-taught through books, online courses, self-initiated projects, and client work.

What are your favourite tools?

Down Arrow

Most of them are listed here.

Where are you based?

Down Arrow

Here in the studio in Melbourne. Down on the south edge of Australia. The interesting stuff always happens on the edges.

Where IS AUSTRALIA?

Down Arrow

Oh boy, you need to come visit. Australia is a clever country on the southern part of the globe. It’s a beautiful place to live, work and play.

Who STARTED THIS?

Down Arrow

Marrowmark was started by @sammythehaymaker.

Why is this called Marrowmark?

Down Arrow

That’s a good question, there’s a more elaborate answer here.

Wasn't this called “Onya Projects” a long time ago?

Down Arrow

Yep. In January 2021 it switched over to Marrowmark.

WHAT'S YOUR RELATIONSHIP STATUS?

Down Arrow

I prefer ongoing partnerships over one-project stands, and will discount initial flows for monogamous relationships. I’m also flexible with payment terms.

HOW DO YOU WORK?

Down Arrow

I like to work fast, but to do that, I need the time and money it takes for me to focus.

What tech do you use?

Down Arrow

I appreciate your interest in how the Marrowmark authors things on the internet or internet adjacent. The ability to peek under the hood is a big part of what makes the web special. Imagine if things had gone Adobe's way with Flash, with every site running on lil swf binaries. There wouldn't be an expectation of source accessibility. The web would be a different place.Instead we collectively enjoy this practice of popping the hood and searching for clues. _What frameworks are they using? How pro is this wacky site? What are these people like?_App related

MM is on Webflow. There are so many options in 2021 but WF is good no-code tool that offer design flexibility.

It’s a pretty nice place to hangout and there are a bunch of fun people making things that seem impossible.

I have more questions, how do I contact you?

Down Arrow

Shoot me an email at fyi@marrowmark.xyz and I'll be happy to answer them. See you there!
