Our (Short) Story

Born in 2019 to solve a problem that our parent company (The Imperium Consultants) had, BlackTile is a modern and creative marketing agency that has been developed with the sole purpose of providing cost effective support the Small Business community of South East Queensland. 

We are made up of a team of creative and cognitive thinkers with the ever present Simone Lawrence at the helm. Our team all work from home and range from stay at home mums to full time software developers.

Simone is a career manager who has worked for one of the largest recruitment companies in the world managing key clients, through to mining companies and prior to starting BlackTile was a key account manager for one of the largest entertainment provision companies in Australia. 

Simone lives and works at home with her husband Adam and their baby girl, Madeline. And yes, she is a stay at home working mum so there is a good chance you will hear Maddie in the background of a phonecall singing along to the wiggles merrily.

Our team

Introducing our team of creatives and managers. 

Simone

Director of all things and wielder of the label maker

At the helm of both BlackTile and The Imperium Consultants sits Simone. After a successful career moving from Administrator to Manger across multiple industries, Simone decided to leave the corporate workforce and transition to Small Business, oh and have a baby at the same time! In 2017 Simone started The Imperium Consultants whilst pregnant, and then in 2018 the decision was made to split Imperium into 2 businesses in order to better support the Small Business community. Simone is a degree qualified manager, with a passion for organising things, and a love for labelmakers.

Adam

Website Developer, Photographer, Marketing Strategist and SEO Whiz

After working in sales management across several different industries over a space of 10 years, Adam decided to jump ship and work with Small Businesses with Simone. Adam is a qualified photographer and a talented website developer, with a passion for marketing strategies and SEO. 

When not working on the latest BlackTile project, Adam is also the lead business consultant for The Imperium Consultants where you will find him coaching Small Businesses on how to best maximise profit margins and automate their business processes.

A qualified Graphic Designer with a portfolio including work for the Australian Defence Force, Mcdonalds and Surf Lifesaving Queensland, Martina runs Martina Ramsden Designs and has the experience to assist in any design project you may have. Oh and she loves a good Mohito from time to time too. 

Manish

Originally from the stunning hillsides of India, Manish is fluent in Hindi, English, HTML5, PHP, CSS and MySQL. Adding to this he has a wealth of experience working with multiple payment gateway systems and is a big fan of developing custom API integrations. There is no job too small or to big for Manish.

No matter what the topic, or tone of voice, Anna is able to find the information, and then turn it into an amazing piece of content. Need a guide on the Building Code of Australia? Got it.
