Julian Connett

Creative Director & Website Consultant

The year was 2004. Julian at the ripe old age of 19 just graduated from his Diploma in Design. With his Blink 182 inspired lip piercing, side part, dickies shorts & high skate socks in toe he stepped into the cutting edge office of Ogilvy & Mather, Auckland.

Earning his stripes as a Mac Operator working on retail corporate giant Progressive Enterprises (Woolworths), his six years experience in that fast paced environment would give him the skill set & reputation for being one of the quickest on the Mac keyboard.

In October 2009 he made the move to Newcastle, Australia where he worked a range of short term contracts across a variety of sectors including the wine industry, not-for-profit and eventually landing back in Marketing & Advertising. In 2012 he decided to branch out from the print design scene and into the wide world of web design. He has been crafting his skill & knowldge in the ever popular area since.

2018 saw the launch of Newcastle Creative Co. where he took all of the above and packaged it into a Creative Consultant type roll. Julian is now an ultimate all rounder who see’s the big picture, sets goals to achieve that and has the skill set to pull it off.
