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 Flox, Michel Tuffery, Kushana Bush, Simon Devitt and rising star Matt Payne where they consult and manage their brands and online marketing channels.

Fleur Cerecke

Fleur Cerecke
Designer — and new mother (currently on Maternity Leave)

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.
