Represented: 15/06/20


Duncan is an award-winning copywriter and creative director (think NZDM, Effies, Axis, DMA Echos...and the list goes on). Having worked in a number of agencies over the years he has helped build brands through effective and engaging campaigns. 


From his first-ever brief creating an adventure playground for a much-loved biscuit brand to recently rebranding New Zealand’s largest bank – there isn’t much he hasn't had a crack at.
