Lumi Consulting began in 2013 as a digital distribution platform for short fiction. The idea was to gather talented artists together and provide them a platform to distribute their work to others. We provided a tailored short fiction service to our subscribers.
We have always been big advocates of the arts, backers of kickstarters and supporters of unique ideas and games. With experience working with a variety of talented individuals and businesses we realised we could do more for them and that’s how we began consulting.
Katie has a Bachelor of Arts, Masters of Publishing and Editing from Melbourne University and an Advanced Diploma of Public Relations. Lauren has a Bachelor of Arts and a Bachelor of Business from Swinburne University of Technology.
After spending just an hour with Lauren and Katie we realised just how underprepared we were to deal with media and public relations! They helped us not only prepare for dealing with interviews, but also helped us gain valuable contacts we would never have gotten ourselves. And, best of all, they both know gaming inside-out.
Working with Lumi Consulting is both a rewarding and a wonderful experience. Lauren and Katie’s enthusiasm and warmth is infectious, and underpinned by keen insight and quick acclimation to any problem space. Lumi Consulting has helped guide me further with two critical projects, and I won’t hesitate to go back for further consultation when the time is right.
“The Lumi Team are the pinnacle of professional, smart, efficient and friendly. We were over worked and understaffed and they came in to help us get a hold of our production schedules and helped us recruit a handful of new staff. They made the process absolutely as painless and professional as possible and got us back on track.”
“Lumi Consulting were excellent to work with – responsible, reliable and knowledgeable. Working with them on our press release made the results far more polished! We appreciated their flexibility and dedication to working with us, and hope to work with them again in future.”
Working with Lauren and Katie was like receiving a big warm hug! These girls were so positive and encouraging, they made our PR a breeze. They clearly communicated strategy and were transparent about their processes, and provided us with advice when needed. We are extremely happy with the international coverage of our film that they achieved and would highly recommend them!
Lumi Consulting have been amazing to work with from the start! Both have been very friendly and always quick to respond and stay in touch, providing updates and ensuring deadlines are met. They’ve offered great tips and advice, which has really helped us as marketing novices. Duct Tape Games strongly recommends using their services, and will definitely be getting in touch with them again for future projects!
The services provided by Lumi Consulting have led to significant improvements in our business’s success. The new website which was developed has a very professional style and features which accurately reflect as well as promote our services.
Lauren and Katie were also able to provide us with advice and ideas in the areas of marketing, especially in relation to social media. We would certainly recommend Lumi Consulting to other businesses who wish to improve their exposure and wish to ‘stand out from the crowd’.
Katie and Lauren were really good at listening to what I wanted. They were able to guide me through the decision and inform me about things I didn’t really understand. I appreciated their style of working respectfully and they were so efficient! They also made everything clear from the beginning about our arrangement, which enabled me to feel that I was in the hands of professional business people. I have recommended them to many others since they worked with me on my marketing plan.
Conversing with Lumi I can safely say has been one of the best decisions we’ve made throughout the entire development of our latest project. You don’t realize how much of a positive impact they can have on all aspects of development until you consult with them. They’re worth their weight in gold and we can’t wait to work with them again.
