We have a team of amazing and creatives, copywriters, videographers, social media crackerjacks and digital marketing strategists just chomping at the bit to help you too.

Aaron Nassau


An unapologetic Nintendo fan boy, the only thing that surpasses his attraction to retro video game culture is his sad collection of Pokemon plushies. Throws back beer and can’t get enough of the family Yorkshire pudding recipe, but he loves nothing more than those who bring him salt and vinegar chips.

Jackson Polley


Jackson’s world is pretty much design, booze and banter, and not particularly in that order. Always up for a laugh and seeing the world upside down.

Katie Spain


Katie grew up on a dairy farm in South Australia but found her writing groove (and a serious shoe addiction) in London. She dabbled in Sydney’s world of commercial radio before heading back to Adelaide to concentrate on cumulating keyboard strokes. Mostly, she writes about local treasures and ordinary folk with extraordinary lives but also has a thing for food, wine, and good times. She likes wearing glitter, strange hats and ridiculously bright clothes and will continue to do so until she’s old and grey.

Naomi Giatas


Always seen having a laugh at just about anything, Naomi (aka Nomes) is part of the graphic design crew. You’ll often find her at a hip hop show on the weekend or looking for the next addition to her ever-growing necklace collection.

Alex Traeger


Alex loves all things couch related. She is a decorative couch potato with remarkably gracious house manners. She will always be seen drinking from a straw no matter the beverage. Raised on The Simpsons she will challenge you to trivia any time, even if you don’t ask. If TV was an Olympic sport she would be Usain Bolt. But in all seriousness shopping is her cardio.

James Tindley


The eternal optimist, Mr Glass Half Full believes the future is very bright. He’s climbed icy gigantic mountains and loves a journey cycling up Hills and down Vales. James is always thinking of how to make his Pinterest dreams come true. PS don’t get jealous of his ability to rock a great sock!

Luke Richards


The Dalai Lama of the office minus the leather sandals – and scampers up the stairs rather than shuffles. Sets high standards and drives a white ute (doesn’t like too many passengers). Gets the job done. Sweet.

Mikyla Gilbert


Known to many as the Ideas Chick, she’s an infectious communicator, columnist, slave to social media and a little bit naughty! She’ll show you her Hills if you show her yours. She’d cheerfully be paid in Chardonnay!

Eliza Oatway


Always seen with a smile on her face, Eliza is one of our social media chicks who’s often up for a chat and a few laughs. A lover of all things sporty but also anything girly, you can find Eliza spending way too much money on active wear and online shopping.

Kirstie Forbes


Kirstie is a London trained journalist, returned to the colonies from whence she came after an extended sojourn. A professional night owl, Kirstie goes to a lot of gallery openings. Sometimes she even looks at the art.

Michaela Fargher


A green thumb with an ever-growing bonsai collection, she’s trekked the Himalayas and Myanmar, Poland. She has extensive experience in design, advertising and digital media. At home, you’ll find her exploring the Flinders Ranges, hiking Kiutpo Forest at night (and not even getting scared) or enjoying an iced latte or gin and tonic.

Vanessa Dingle


With over 20 years in marketing, Vanessa has recently been enticing audiences producing online video content. Known for taking the road less travelled she enjoys developing content strategy tailored for channels to deliver metrics that matter. Vanessa loves double espressos and all things S.A. She also claims to have a green belt in karate! POW!

Chas Barter


Chas’ religion is wine and he serves the god Bacchus in everything he does. Career-wise, he’s worked in wine selling, marketing, publishing and education (well except for that stint selling hair care, which didn’t taste as good, so we won’t mention that).

Elyse Williams


Elyse is the crafty type who spends way too much money on colourful art supplies and stationery she doesn’t need… And even more on clothes, for that matter. When she’s not regretting her latest purchase, you’ll find Elyse talking far too loudly while she writes or paints.

Kris Dingey


Kris is a piccolo drinking, craft beer admiring cyclist and Apple evangelist who is waiting patiently for ‘bring your pet to work day’. He also needs more words in his bio.

Marley Tanner


Marley is our resident social media addict who wears her heart on her sleeve (literally – it’s tattooed there). When she’s not agonizing over the perfect Instagram filter you can find her buried in the pages of a good book or dancing herself clean at a gig.
