Bio

Paul asked a copywriter to pen this bio. Why? Well, one, because he knows it’s quite tough writing about yourself in the third person... and two, he wants to show you that he knows copywriters who will still speak with him. 

 

Paul has worked agency-side as a studio director, a senior designer and as an art director. Working with clients such as The Auckland Arts Festival, Auckland Live, Lion, Silo Theatre, The Topp Twins, Auckland City Council, Avis, Harcourts, Environment Canterbury and FreshChoice. The arts, councils, diverse national brands... he’s yoga-level flexible.

 

Photoshop, Indesign, XD - we told him they were weird names to call his kids. These are the jokes, folks... Look, do you want it fast, great and on budget? Many would say you can’t have all three. Well, those poor saps have never met this man...iac - he works well with others, so long as you never use the following phrases:

It’s not quite there yet

Can we get some more ‘wow’ factor?

That font is basically just Helvetica, right?
