MEET THE MAKERS
We're a company, a team, and a family...
The Makery is a Sydney-based creative agency specialising in branding and online marketing. Quality art and web development is at the core of everything we make.
A team comprised of designers, tech wizards, and all-round creative thinkers; we have pretty much worked together all our lives.
The Makery was officially founded in 2009 by siblings, Rob, Michelle and Mimmette with her husband Jason. Collectively, their experience covers a wide range of clients from various industries.
Formal training in journalism makes me the wordsmith in the team. As a grammar nerd who loves making lists, organising things and telling everybody else what to do, I may sound a tad boring, but my preoccupation with Gantt charts and taxation is proof that I'm living on the edge.
I wanted to be a pro surfer but I'm like a monkey in the water. Luckily, I'm a good illustrator and became a graphic designer with a pretty good variety of creative gigs for respectable clients ranging from animation to coding. When I'm not pushing around pixels and bezier curves though, you can still find me somewhere along the east coast of Oz looking like shark bait.
Pina Coladas make me nauseous and I hate that wet sock feeling when I get caught in the rain, but I do like the perfect marriage between function and aesthetics. Between you and me, my secret to producing good design is a meticulous eye for balance . . . and the Dirty Dancing soundtrack on full volume to get me in the mood.
