About Us

We could tell you about how creative, experienced and talented our team is. We’re all of these things of course. But we’d rather let our work do most of the talking.

However succumbing somewhat to the expectation of what a typical team section should contain, here’s a brief introduction to the guys. Complete with quirky bios, a dog and some impeccably placed jargon.

Meet the Team

Ben Crawford

Ben Crawford

Strategy Director


Ben has a huge head. Literally. It’s massive. Which is lucky because he’s our chief planner and strategist so it needs to hold a lot of thoughts. He has over 15 years of multinational advertising experience, developing brand and communication strategies and bringing them to market via the most relevant channels for the target audience.

Libby Oborn

Libby Oborn

Creative Director


Libby is graced with the kind of height even a giraffe would be envious of. Which is perfect for plucking creative gems out of thin air…though we’d still prefer to receive a perfectly crafted brief. Libby is a career creative, working with some of this country’s biggest brands since ages ago.

Jamie Yang

Jamie Yang

Art Director


Sweet clean lines and design mastery is what Jamie is famous for. Along with his infectious, hearty laugh. An amazing all-rounder, Jamie oversees our creative team along with Libby. He also works on a wide range of projects for our clients, from website design through to identity development, packaging, video production and animation.

Ryan Wilson

Ryan Wilson

Content Producer


Ryan is a straight shooter. Which is bloody handy for a videographer and photographer. You’ll find him travelling all over the country creating content for our clients. And when he’s not pushing his creative limits out on a shoot, or testing the latest gear to add to our arsenal, you’ll find him at home experimenting in the kitchen.

Grayson Davis

Grayson Davis

Senior Creative


Creativity flows through Grayson’s veins, actually he won’t shut up about it. With a great combo of both creative advertising and graphic design, he’s constantly striving for the perfect consumer connection that will provide the best solutions in today’s media landscape.

Nick Vaudrey

Nick Vaudrey

Full Stack Developer


Not only does Nick have a passion for building pixel perfect and engaging digital solutions with his full stack capabilities, he’s also an extremely talented front end designer and UX architect. His vast experience and wealth of knowledge a valuable asset we can provide to all of our digital projects.

Ashleigh Ryan

Ashleigh Ryan

Senior Creative


Ash is an arty wee thing. Heck, just look at that profile photo. Sawheeet! Having recently spent many years as the head designer, stylist and content creator of a leading magazine, she has an arsenal of design weaponary tucked up her sleeve and rolled into her perfectly formed Apple mouse. All ready to unleash on you and your brief.

Steph Norris

Steph Norris

Creative


Also known as Chuck. Fresh thinking and an impeccable attention to detail sums Steph up to a tee. Her primary role is ensuring that those great creative concepts our clients approve are then faithfully and accurately replicated in all of the required formats to execute the campaign or brief to its full potential.

Ashlee Summers

Ashlee Summers

Creative


We’re not going to lie, it’s pretty confusing having two Ash’s working together, but we can always tell Ashlee from Ashleigh by her Aussie twang! Hailing from Adelaide, Aussie Ash has been working in advertising and design on both sides of the Tasman since graduating. She’s certainly found her happy place here in New Zealand – most weekends you’ll find her a-top the highest peak in sight.

Charlotte Sowman

Charlotte Sowman

Creative


Hailing from the Vegas of the South, Charlotte shifted to Christchurch in 2010 to study a Bachelor of Design. It was a no brainer really. She’s been passionate about the creative industry since she was hooning around the flat streets of Ashburton as a kid. Which may explain why she only semi-enjoys climbing big hills. Fun fact. Charlotte is also a celebrated and incredible wedding photographer.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Malo Oborn

Malo Oborn

Dog


Malo is a dog. He’s a black Labrador to be more precise and he enjoys sitting in the sun, sleeping and eating. Interspersed with many pats from adoring females. Pretty much the dream lifestyle. If only he could drive. Hmmm. There could be a campaign in that….
