Bjoern Halfmann - Senior Digital Designer
Senior Digital Creative Bjoern is not just the owner of arguably the most impressive beard in Surry Hills, he’s also a passionate designer with a dedication to creating beautiful, user-orientated solutions which he honed on a client list as diverse as Allianz, Google and Lego.
With a name like Bjørn Halfmann, you may expect Bjørn to have set sail for the shores of Sydney on a viking boat from Sweden, but in fact this hirsute human hails from Hamburg. Our resident zen-master, Bjoern brings a sense of calm to every situation, even when deadlines and go-live dates are looming.
Helena Hill - Content Specialist
India Bennett - Project Manager

A recent arrival to Sydney, India has thrown herself into the Bondi lifestyle with yoga, smoothie-drinking and swooning over French bulldogs filling the majority of her free time.
Emilie Sheehan - Designer/Creative
Whether it’s creating intuitive user experiences, engaging animations, or beautiful illustrations, designer and creative extraordinaire Emilie brings imagination and flair to everything she does.
You may find Emilie convincing people of the life-enhancing powers of Pinterest, running in Sydney’s eastern suburbs, practising calligraphy, or occasionally adding to her collection of (as yet!) unpublished comedy sketches.
