CREATIVE DIRECTOR

 
 
Dominique Varendorff, Creative Director

Dominique Varendorff

I became obsessed with marketing from an early age when my favourite part of Home and Away was the ad breaks. I loved knowing that a whole team of people were behind creating each ad I saw and thought I was an absolute genius because I always had ideas of how they could make the ads better. Of course, at that age most of my ideas involved cute boys and prettier clothes.

My obsession with marketing took me through a 4 year degree in interactive marketing and communications and into the corporate world where I worked for two colossal international brands in Australia and Canada. After more than 10 years in the corporate world I realised that it wasn't all it was cracked up to be and found myself feeling creatively constrained. So, I quit what was once my dream career at Estée Lauder Companies and used my experience marketing high-end brands to start my own digital marketing agency where I could gain creative freedom.

RELATIONSHIP MANAGER/CLIENT STRATEGY

 
Cory Hoy, Relationship Manager

Cory Hoy

Finished school, studied finance, worked for dream bank, figured out 10 years later there's more to life than bonuses & promotions, embraced creativity and learnt graphic design and animation in spare time, enjoyed this way more than spreadsheets, walked away from career, started a business, loving life. There's my cliché story.

I've always been fascinated with consumer behaviour and realised there's nothing stopping me from putting this to practical use in combination with my creative skills and background in relationship management. I ditched Macquarie, attempted to grow a beard and moved into the design and marketing space with Dom.

Now we're in year three, the ties are gathering dust, the shoddy beard lingers and we're helping pull others up who, in turn, are pulling us up. It's win-win. Life is good.
