Fluid Crew

We’re a bunch
of thinkers

We’re a real mix here at Fluid and our team has been growing and evolving since we kicked this thing off in 1999. No matter where you are, one of our team is just a couple of clicks away.

Fluid Tim

Company founder, designer, project manager and branding nerd. Tim has been involved in marketing and design in New Zealand since 1996. Hailing from the UK, he's worked for a number of UK and NZ agencies. He thrives in the creative space which exists between every business and their customers.

Tim Buckley
Creative Director
Fluid Bex

The life of a globetrotting designer at some of London’s top packaging agencies was a great experience, but the lure of home and the opportunity to bring up three kids ’the kiwi way’ was always going to win in the end. Now well settled in Queenstown and co-owner of Fluid, life is sweet as.

Bex Woollard
Creative Director
Fluid Anna

Anna combines her passion for design with her love of farming by splitting her time between Timaru, the Lindis Valley and Queenstown. With over 20 years experience under her belt she is adept at exploring every client's brand story and making it stand out from the herd.

Anna Emmerson
Creative Director
Fluid Sophie

Studio and Project Manager, Sophie keeps us all on task. She has a strong background in communications, marketing, digital and website project management. She's been on all sides of the client/studio fence, she’ll help you translate the geek speak and get complex projects across the finish line.

Sophie Kennedy

Fluid Christopher B

A creative geek originally from Portland Oregon, Chris is considered the second most invasive species in Otago next to the Wilding Pine. His passion is in using digital metrics to inform strategy, creative and growth. He has a degree in communication, a certificate in web design and years of experience in digital strategy.

Chris Barnhart
Digital Strategist
Fluid Leigh

A Wanaka local with an obsession for typography, Leigh has always been creating things. While Leigh may seem quiet at first, once you get her talking about kerning, em dashes or the value of a serif over a sans serif then it’s all on. Three young daughters and a very talented master craftsman make home life the perfect balance to life in the studio for this valued team member.

Leigh Cooper
Senior Designer
Fluid Sarah

Sarah’s love of extreme sports and desire for adventure landed her in Queenstown and it just so happens she’s had a bit of graphic design experience too. Seven years at one of the UK’s top agencies has created a rare talent, blending typography with falling off mountain bikes. The perfect mix.

Sarah Hardman
Senior Designer
Fluid Andy

Andy is our photographer extraordinaire! With a background as a Senior Graphic and Website Designer he understands your photography needs better than most! With over 8 years experience in both fields, Andy brings the hot sauce to fire up every project he’s involved in.

Andy Brown
Senior Designer/Photographer
Fluid Jimmy

We extracted this fella (happily) from the city where he had developed a pretty impressive creative portfolio. Like most kiwis, he also did a stint overseas with Scotland being his base. Jimmy loves exploring the depths of design through a good story, with his sweet spot being brand identity and now a key part of our southern crew.

Jimmy O'Connor
Senior Designer
Fluid Chris Rae

Chris lives in the world of code. Sometimes it can be hard to understand what he does but the results speak for themselves. A tough, analytical approach to the web gives Chris the lead when it comes to getting your website really cranking.

Web Developer
Fluid Becca

Born and bred in the south Becca has joined us from Christchurch where she has had a successful four years as an in house designer. She is now in Queenstown to further her creative ambitions and tackle the local hills. If she’s not behind her desk building your brand ID you’ll find her out on the trails training for a marathon.

Becca Newman

Fluid Craig

Craig has come leaps and bounds since graduating with a Bachelor of Communication Design from Otago Polytechnic in 2017. He's taken on a multitude of tasks, meeting challenges head on with skill and determination. His sense of humour and creative drive make him a real asset to the team as does his growing experience in digital marketing.

Fluid Reece

An eye for detail, a passion for making cool shit and a seemingly endless enthusiasm for business - this makes Reece the perfect partner and sounding board for all the crazy ideas we need to manage on a daily basis. If you’ve got a mad idea and you’re looking for someone to make it happen, here he is.

Reece McChlery

Fluid Ronnie

Ronnie has a degree in Visual Communications and has been working as a designer and illustrator in beautiful Queenstown for many years. She loves learning new things, working with colour, print techniques, illustration, hand painted signage and getting nerdy about typography whenever possible.

Ronnie Baker

Fluid Mel

Mel takes care of the accounts functions and other things that keep the studio humming. She has deep administration experience within other design agencies, plus she has a design degree and can hold her own in a room of creatives. She also loves hiking, camping and good food, making this wonderfully-rounded human a perfect match for us!

Mel Halil

Fluid Phillip

Making his way to Wanaka in his early 20's, the lakes and mountains quickly became an integral part of Phillip's life. Exploring by foot and capturing via the lens he quickly developed a genuine love of videography inspired by the vast and never ending playground – The Southern Alps.

What we’re looking for

We’ve never been interested in following the herd and most of our clients seem to be feeling the same. Fluid has a number of exciting projects underway at the moment and we’re looking to expand the team. If this looks like the place for you, and you're interested then get in touch.
