At Grin we design, we think, we write, we create, we produce, we talk and, more importantly, we listen.

When we do business with like-minded clients, something surprising happens – we become friends. For more than 20 years we have made a whole lot of clients happy. And that makes us very happy.

WHO’S DOING IT

Creativity (and happiness) is at the core of what we do, and that can’t be achieved without a great bunch of hard-working people. We are brand strategists, artists, comedians, designers, copywriters, musicians, marketers and project managers who work collaboratively to guide the design and development of your brand

JUSTIN JAMIESON

Director

Justin’s a hands-on kind of guy. He likes to work closely with clients, figuring out exactly what they need, and overseeing his team to make sure they get it. He’s passionate about top-notch work with personalised service, and founded the agency with that vision in mind, way back in 1997.

He believes that an enjoyable work place is an effective one – especially when it comes to creative thinking – and he’s worked to bring fun and positivity into every aspect of the business. Even the agency’s name.

LUKE FRASER

Creative Director

Luke’s done most of what you’d expect from a top Creative Director. He studied at the Swinburne National School of Design. He’s had more than 10 years’ experience in the industry. And he’s spoken at the world-renowned Semi Permanent design conference.

But unlike other people in his role, Luke’s co-published a t-shirt magazine and received three ARIA nominations for best artwork.

If all that wasn’t shocking enough, his interests include Halloween, Christmas and collecting things like Masonic memorabilia and antique taxidermy.

KARINA SCHILLER

Account Director

A welcome addition to our merry studio crew.

JEREMY DRAKE

Editor

It all started for Jez when at just 22-years-old he purchased a one way ticket to Bangkok with a dream of travelling the world and then didn’t come home for three years. A trained journalist and photographer, Jez loves sniffing out good stories that are anchored by local people, crazy adrenaline induced experiences and weird looking cuisines. However, he definitely feels most comfortable chasing sunset photos while on a scooter in Southeast Asia.

After almost a decade working in corporate content and communications agencies, Jez finally packed it all in and decided he would chase the travel freelancer dream. He’s since somehow made it work and has worked all over the world. But his most memorable experience was definitely working for get lost in the wild highlands of Papua New Guinea.

A creative thinker, maker and strategist, when Jez is not travelling he’s trying to teach his 1-year-old son how to take award winning photos.

BECK HASKINS

Graphic Designer

Hard work and enthusiasm are at the core of everything Beck does. With more than 10 years experience as a designer and illustrator, she’s grown and moved with the tide, working with print, digital and branding for a variety of clients both big and small – and she’s got a killer skill set to prove it.

Her passion for design and illustration is fuelled by a love of comedy and cooking. When she’s not in the studio, Beck is creating puns, listening to endless podcasts full of puns and creating fancy dishes (no puns) – bellies everywhere rejoice at her cooking (including ours) – a passion spawned from working part-time in hospitality for 11 years.

“It’s a bold statement, but italic like it is.”

IVAN VALACHOVIC

Production Manager

Feared by printers for his attention to detail, Ivan provides dependability at the last stage of the design process to ensure the best end-product. ‘Ivan the Terrible’ is also particular about personal tastes. When he’s not scaring print houses, he’s testing waiters with his order of Earl Grey Tea (served at precisely 60 degrees, black with one sugar and in a glass, thanks) and has a soft spot for freshly baked bread (which means hot from the oven).

He also speaks fluent Slovak and conversational Czech.

HANK JAMIESON

Office Mascot

Client liaison is Hank’s forte and whilst he has an unfortunate resting B face it is no indication of his eagerness to please. He also has a shoe fetish.
