Phillip Mariette, Director
The big fella is better known for his cleaning skills than being the big boss. If he’s not spending time examining his pens he is vacuuming up a storm. Known for his ability to resolve any problem no matter how big our fearless leader keeps us all on track when things seem insurmountable. With sixteen years of running a small business Phil genuinely can say ‘I’ve seen it all’. Clients love him for his honesty and calm approach, a couple call him Buddha and he’s always good for a coffee and catch up in between dusting.
Kellie Northwood, Director
Kellie is the only one who can tell Phil where to go (and get away with it), the truth is when not rushing off to Board meetings, a simple "FLUFFY!" keeps the big fella in line. Passionate about the underdog Kellie heads up Two Sides and the Australian Catalogue Association as she marches ahead promoting paper and print. Resident greenie and marketing whiz-fizz, Kellie holds the brainiac title with three degrees under her belt – BA Comms, Post Grad Sustainability and Diploma of Education word is she is about to start studying law, no rest for the wicked.
David Gilbert-Kent, Senior Designer
Dave is the longest standing member of the Xsd lineup. His preferred mode of transport is running and other than designing websites, his passion in life is supporting his beloved Geelong Cats. DGK shares a portfolio of digital work including front-end website design, ongoing website management, CMS integration, SEO and eDM campaigns. He has been in the design game for over 8 years and manages the digital accounts on a wide gamut of clients including Goodman Fielder, DealCorp, Pomeroy Pacific and Australian Catalogue Association.
Tim Hancock, Senior Designer
The resident 'beardo' (he had one before it was cool) and Phil's 'Golden Boy', Tim Hancock is also a multi-award winning senior print designer at Xsd with over six years experience in corporate literature, branding and little bit of digital thrown in for good measure. Tim has worked closely with a range of clients including Australia Post, Landmark, Goodman Fielder and St Catherine's School.
Charlie is currently under performance management, given his role as guard dog leaves a lot to be desired. Our resident security officer spends more time snoozing under Phil’s desk than he does patrolling the boundaries, however given his seniority at a ripe old age of forty-two we make small allowances. Word of warning do not carry a tennis ball when entering the Xsd building, you run the risk of being licked to death.
