Who We Are

Dannika Patterson, Director.

Since early 2003, I have supported the launch of successful products, customer loyalty and marketing programs around the globe. I gained experience in international and domestic markets across the US, UK, Europe, South Africa, the Middle East and Asia-Pacific regions before relocating back to my hometown of Brisbane permanently in late 2009.

Enter Morningstar.

While Morningstar is currently a one woman show, I am lucky enough to have an awesome network of industry experts that I constantly consult with and refer to. Which is why the rest of this very succinct website is written in third person. You should also know I am also currently courting a certain industry hotshot, with plans to announce an exciting new partnership in the not too distant future… watch this space.

What We Do

  • Strategic Marketing
  • Business Development
  • PR/Social PR
  • Project Management
  • Media Planning
  • Copy Writing

To round out Morningstar’s service offering, we are tapped into a network of top notch independent professionals who excel in their chosen fields. Morningstar can provide, facilitate or refer directly (as is most appropriate) across a wider range of services such as:

  • Design
  • Production
  • Photography
  • Video
  • Search
  • Web Development

Morningstar do not mark-up services from third parties, we simply bill at an hourly rate for time spent coordinating purchases, bookings, quotes, etc, if we are asked to do so on a client’s behalf. Our business model is as simple and transparent as that.

Why We Rock

Benefits to the client operating under the Morningstar model include:

  • Affordability. Pay only for actively worked hours at a competitive market rate with no salary or retainer commitments.
  • Direct rates. From all third party suppliers. No agency commissions, no mark ups.
  • Time. Save yours and run multiple campaigns with a single point of contact.
  • Attitude. We’ll always be positive in our approach to doing business. We enjoy what we do and we work with good people, so this one’s a given.
  • Reach. A network of first rate suppliers across a range of services.
  • Scalability. Need marketing services for 50 hours one month and only 5 the next? Not a problem. Morningstar understands marketing requirements and budgets often have moving goal posts. You make the call monthly, with advance forecasts.
  • Control. No surprises. All third party quotes to be directly approved and settled by client. Morningstar fees can be forecast a month in advance with provisions for additional hours.


We would be delighted to provide case studies, testimonials or references from past and present clients, on request.
