Meet Creative Marketing Consultant - Julian Connett
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 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 skills & knowledge in the popular area since. In particular he is passionate about the User Experience, Conversion Optimization and the Performance side of websites.
2018 saw the launch of Newcastle Creative Co. where he took all of the above and packaged it into a Creative Consultant roll. Julian is now an ultimate all-rounder who see’s the big picture, sets goals to achieve them and has the skill set to pull them off.
If I do a job in 30 minutes, it’s because I spent 10 years learning how to do that in 30 minutes. You owe me for the years, not the minutes. – @davygreenberg
