Meet the Team

(Ok, not strictly a team but no man is an island!)

Ian

CREATIVE DIRECTOR/DESIGNER

Creative Director Ian Gay was born and raised in the south-west of England and grew up with the sounds of printing presses and the smell of ink. His father, grand-father and great-grandfather were all printers and it was little surprise that he followed a similar career path. Discover more about "A Family Of Printers" here >

 

With over 30 years experience in the print and design industry Ian's skills have been honed from working in advertising agencies, publishing houses and brand studios in both Australia and the UK.


Ian's solid grounding in artwork and print design in leading regional UK studios and after completing a degree in Packaging Design, Ian moved to Australia in 2002 and took up the role of Art Director for a leading publishing house where he was responsible for creating new and innovative publications whilst heading up, and shaping, the design team.


Ian has also been employed as Art Director/Senior Designer at two of the Gold Coast’s leading brand studios where he continued to refine his skills and grow his passion for graphic design.

In his spare time Ian can be found riding the waves around the Gold Coast or chasing the oval ball at the local touch field.

 

Since 2004, Ian has been volunteering for the Disabled Surfers Association of Australia, firstly helping to establish and run the Gold Coast branch, and, since 2021, as National President.

Monty

Meet Monty - our fabulous four-legged friend and resident cuddle beast (well as cuddly as a bag of bones can be!!).

We adopted Monty in May 2019 from greyhound rescue group Friends of the Hound and he soon fell in to his role of not doing very much at all! A typical greyhound he sleeps most of the day and is as chilled as an ice cube!

Questions most asked about Monty include - is he fast? Ummm, hell yes! Does he need a lot of exercise? No! His preferred position is horizontal!
