Phillip Mariette

Director

With over twenty-two years delivering Creative Services, Phil knows how to design. More than that, he knows how to use visual language to build company messages and most critically dialogue with customers. A career spanning across corporate, bespoke and diverse design campaigns he brings to the team strong leadership in developing inspiring creative. He is also the neat freak of the crew and is often found with the vac-pack on his back humming a Van Morrison tune through the office. 

 

Kellie Northwood

Executive Director

The ‘Marketeer’ in the room has an undying passion to deliver effective communications that realise true results to our client’s bottom line. Whilst Kellie is known by reputation as the golden girl of the print industry, she is insistent on the critical role digital and other media plays in our multi-channel world today. Often cited as the ‘brains trust’ what Kellie doesn’t know about marketing effectiveness is not worth knowing. On top of all that she keeps us boys in check with her calming voice of reason and no-nonsense approach when we get rowdy.
