SOPHIE ADAM

Hey, I’m Sophie. (But you can call me Soph if you like Jhené Aiko xo). I’m a Melbourne based junior creative who strives for ideas that are birthed from ingenuity, make you uncomfy, and are a little whack. After realising brands are the ones who shift culture, I’ve become focused on aligning with those who push in progressive directions. We ourselves are also brands, and I’m keen to capitalise on this within the fashion industry. Even though I’m at the start of my “career”, I’ve done some pretty cool things like AWARD school & becoming a Cannes Future Lions shortlist. Who knows what’ll be next.

Jenanie jude

I would describe myself as an ambitious Art Director who is just a little Indian girl who is trying to find her way around this crazy advertising world! I am also an avid lemon cake connoisseur who shamelessly spends majority of my pay check on varieties of lemon cake.

Judith Appiagyei

ART DIRECTOR

When I would put more effort into the creative work instead of maths homework in primary school, that’s when I knew that I wanted to do something creative in the future. For the majority of my life, I have always been indecisive, which means that most of the time I can never decide on what ice cream flavour to get. Being indecisive has always bothered me. However, it’s my indecisiveness that makes my art direction better because my mind is always thinking of a billion different ways I can improve something visually. In the future, I hope I can use my skills as an art director to make great work for brands.

Leonie Duff

ART DIRECTOR

“Can you take a pic for me?” A friend shyly asks.

Luckily I have already stalked their socials, am ~cosmically aligned~ with when golden hour is, have planned the candid props, and am flexible enough for even the most questionable angles. I.will.take.100! I am a bit pedantic and have a tendency to get obsessed with new hobbies for 30 days until I find the next one. Luckily I’ve been able to target this towards learning new skills for my career (sometimes). I’m particularly interested in 3D set design and editorials (these have passed the 30 day test).

My many shoes have granted me the perseverance to go the extra mile, an appreciation for the world around me, and great conversations with people from all walks of life, allowing me to slip into any role!

Studying at RMIT has set me up for success, with my team being 1 out of only 5 in Australia to take home a 2021 D&AD New Blood Pencil. I know how to think on my feet, and utilizing deep insights, alongside my killer eye for detail, I create compelling, memorable and refined advertising campaigns.

Gid Goldberg

ART DIRECTOR

Growing up, I always had an active imagination. From live commentating the WWE matches of me wrestling pillows in my bedroom (FYI, I'm the undisputed world champion) to becoming the world's biggest rockstar in the few moments I spent singing my heart out in the shower. I was always daydreaming.

So when I was told that advertising was watching random ideas in your head turn into something real, I knew I'd never look back.

From a Cannes Future Lions shortlist to starting my own film festival, I'm ready to watch my random ideas turn into something real.

Amelia Ransom

Junior creative. Big shoes. Bigger glasses.

Christopher Bui

Loudest voice in the room? Probably not.

Going to make a stunning design you’re gonna love? Definitely.

A self-proclaimed Swiss army knife of digital design, creativity is just second nature to him. Even though he enjoys everything from graphic design to video editing, that’s not all there is to him.

Linyunqing Fan

ART DIRECTOR

Hey, I'm Linyunqing (call me Alexis if you like).

I would also rush out of the bathroom in the middle of the shower, just to write down the amazing idea that just came to my mind. Being a perfectionist and an art director means that I often struggle with Adobe suite because I am obsessed with every detail. I'm a creative who draw vitality from quirky ideas. With my love for art direction and design, I am ready to utilize my imagination in the industry.

Jessica Trajkovska

ART DIRECTOR

Intertwined with the brilliance of culture and originality under my belt. A nobody to some and an utter body of creative idiocy to others. I manage to work in a space of having rather than one of deficit.

I’m not the loudest voice in the room but I am always listening with intent and ready to pounce whenever a wacky idea comes to life in my head. There is always a trail of mischievousness – adding a little madness to my method.

Forever motivated by the desire to achieve, rather than beat others.

Together let's disrupt the world of Art Direction...

Mercedes Woodcroft

ART DIRECTOR

After a strenuous and somewhat disrupted start to my academic studies, I discovered that I had ADHD. Loving every avenue and aspect of advertising I had to start looking at what best accommodated to my skills and learning style. Being inventive and thinking about briefs and ideas wherever I was, in combination with my inherent networking skills, allowed me to discover that the role of a creative director was the perfect career for me. Creative direction, finally enabled me to facilitate a way in which all my millions of ideas constantly buzzing around my head could be an asset. My unique creative visions and ability to think outside the box has reflected positively in the projects that I have recently undergone.
