Nicola Devine

Nicola Devine
Creative Director

Originally trained as a graphic designer in the 1990s, when iPhones were still a twinkle in Steve Jobs’ eye, Nicola has been involved in both print-based and interactive media since her time studying at Whanganui School of Design.

Nicola is an avid follower of new technology in the marketing, design and communications. She is a contributor to Design Assembly, an organisation promoting conversations in graphic design. Her claim to fame is being on a train in Spain, on the plain, in the rain.

Katherine English

Katherine English
Studio Administrator

World-famous on Pinterest and hoarder of superb scents; our super stylish Studio Admin also has a soft spot for Instagram where followers flock to see her still life compositions that juxtapose Chinese antiques, the bounty of local gardens and modernist furniture.

At Tanker Katherine throws her neural pathways in myriad directions, making sure the work flows smoothly, the clients are content… right down to ensuring the team have enough coffee to get them into top gear for the day.

On Furry Fridays Pearl the Pug accompanies Katherine to the office to spread her effervescent joy.

Rose Smyth

Rose Smyth
Studio Assistant

With “Initiative” as her middle name, we couldn’t ask for a better person managing everything studio-side from the everyday essentials like where to buy the best local coffee (Prima, FYI) to researching and implementing one-off technological upgrades.

Having attended High School with half of Millenial Christchurch, Rose is the go-to for the local lowdown on gigs, bars, cafes and restaurants; she often rocks a mean vintage find in the clothing department.

Pooch Manu is an energetic visitor to Tanker Towers.

Fleur Cerecke

Fleur Cerecke
Designer

Self-described as a passionate and enthusiastic orator of design, Fleur brings an all-consuming intensity to any conversation, strategy, brand, print or online creative. We’ve managed to lasso her to a chair for the legal allocated time-slots and funnel that energy into best practice solutions.

A recent return from the big smoke of Auckland, to her home town of Otautahi, Fleur is a legendary do-er upperer, creating magic with anything from a sideboard to a house with internal PVC columns.

Top dog Chloe and Top kid Hugo occasionally poke their noses in to give the team some cuteness overload.

Noodles Devine
Chief Canine Executive

(Wire Fox Terrier) Beyoncé coined the phrase “Yas Kween” after observing Noodles delicately devouring a three week old piece of chicken she found on the sidewalk during one of their weekly private Skype sessions. When not chatting with other superstars and diplomats, she spends her time daydreaming about inane but supremely creative life requirements in a bespoke armchair created for her by Marc Newson.

Fergus Devine
Assistant Canine Executive

(West Highland Terrier) Happy-go-lucky Fergus is right-hand terrier to Noodles. He adores multi-tasking management of several toys, inadvertently creating the soon-to-be popular dance move “The Rampant Lion” whilst doing so. Fergus is always ready for/demanding of a cuddle at 4am and rocks his marine-themed bandana like pro.
