About Tanker Creative

Enabler of brand, web and social for ambitious creatives


Tanker has been involved in Aotearoa New Zealand’s fine arts and creative landscape since the early naughties when Founder Nicola Devine was in the right place at the right time to take up an opportunity to work with artists and galleries.

Since then Tanker has continued to both collaborate with creatives and put their money where their mouth is by collecting contemporary local art and design with a prominent focus on female practitioners.

These days Team Tanks are known for successful partnerships with creative professionals such as international artists, Michel Tuffery, Claudia Borella and Maca Bernal where we consult and collaborate on their brand, web and social media marketing.

If you or your organisation is ready to partner with a set of go-getters then contact us today.

Nicola Devine

Nicola Devine ia / she / her
Creative Director
Auckland + Christchurch

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 opportunities in marketing, design and communications. Her main interests are in technology, sustainable creative practice and diversity. She integrates these interests into the business by ensuring a respect for Māori and Pacific Islands culture; ethnicity, sexuality, gender, social, economic and people with disabilities.

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.
