Shay Starrenburg

Web Developer

Shay is a web geek with 9 years in the industry and is also passionate about digital marketing.

Outside of the office, Shay and her builder husband are serial renovators. She has a love for interior design and getting creative.

Matt McDonald

3D Artist

Matt loves Brandsmith so much he's been with us for 7 years! Matt has basically got one of the coolest jobs at Brandsmith, immersed in the world of Virtual Reality.

Matt's a bit of an adrenalin junkie who loves mountain biking, motorcross, snowboarding and unicycling. He and his brother even used to have their own indoor/ourdoor BMX skatepark.

Matt doesn't leave his artist talent at work, he's often in his garage creating all sorts of amazing hand-made creations.

Dan Jane

Senior Art Director

Dan’s our Jack of all trades, he’s got skills in web development, design, marketing, video and photography!

When he’s not being a whizz at work you’ll find him at the gym pumping iron to the beats of Justin Timberlake.

We always count on Dan for whenever we’re in the mood for a bad Dad Joke.

Shyam Gopal

Web Developer

Shyam has been in the IT industry since 2011. He began as a software developer, but has moved to his passion of web development over the years (he's our Magento Guru!)

When he's not coding up a storm at work you'll find him outside playing football, practicing his talents in photography or watching Lord of the Rings.

Mel Smith

Senior Art Director

Mel has been at Brandsmith for 6 years and is our passionate Senior Designer.

Mel loves the outdoors and spends most of her time out of work riding with her horse Coco, kayaking and fishing (in all Taranaki weather).

Kate Warner

Designer

Kate is one of our designers and also branches out into email and social marketing. She enjoys long brunches with family and working hard with her builder partner renovating in the weekends.

Kate is an expert at home-brew beer, her secret ingredient being her crazy 'beer making' dance. Only a select few of us have been lucky enough to witness it.

Kate loves her cat Peaches, like a lot (^._.^).

John Luke

Manager

You can often hear John's laugh echoing loudly through the office. John made the big move from Auckland to the beautiful Taranaki and has loved every second of it.

When Johns not working all kinds of hours at work, you'll find him chilling at the beach with a beer, spending time exploring Taranaki with his family or busting a move to Ariana Grande.

After meeting John, you'll find he always has a saying for every situation - whether something is "Bigger than Ben-Hurr" or "Going Gangbusters"!
