About Us

tinderpoint
/ˈtɪndərpɔɪnt/
Tinderpoint
noun
The point at which a fire gets lit.

But it’s what we aim to do for our clients: light a fire under their digital marketing.

We started out in 2002 as RingJohn, a specialist digital agency with a simple formula: seasoned experts on every account and a commitment to delivering on our promises.
We’ve stuck with the formula for more than 15 years – because it works!
