Kasey McDonnell


Creative Team Lead


"Post-it note guy"

After joining us as a Client Strategy Manager, transitioning to the creative team and eventually growing into the role of Creative Lead, Kasey has proved himself a maverick. He approaches advertising with a highly empathetic and people-first mindset, which reverberates throughout the creative team.

Kasey specialises in brand strategy, typography, and motion design, all of which are grounded in human-centric principles. With a career background working for both the Ministry for the Environment and the Children's Commissioner, Kasey brings plenty of heart to his mahi. 

If he's not designing or brainstorming with the creative team, you're likely to find Kasey wielding his film camera, attending the local pub quiz, or geeking out over the latest Apple gizmo.


  1. Waffle and bagel cheffery
  2. Being lovely
  3. A human-library of random trivia (pub quiz anyone?)


  1. Addicted to watching Taskmaster
  2. Easily sunburnt
  3. Keeping houseplants alive
