o'callaghan

CO-FOUNDER
CREATIVE LEAD

I help solve problems through design. Specialising in brand and packaging design, I love crafting the strategies that build awesome brands. I am an avid sketch noter, and creator of nudenotes. I’m always on the lookout for a new brand/design book to read, so ping me a message with your recommendations.

I’m partial to a pint and a BBQ - any excuse to fire up the grill with a beer in hand!

CO-FOUNDER
MARKETING & OPERATIONS LEAD

Through creativity and determination, I make sure that every venture succeeds. I am the voice of NSC, with my background in marketing, writing and events management. I help keep it real at NSC with good old-fashioned, down-to-earth admin. I'm also an advocate for sustainability, which I'll bring to every action at NSC.

I’m often found geeking-out at comic-cons or singing badly at karaoke with a G&T in my hand.

BRAND DESIGNER
& PHOTOGRAPHER

Working for over 10 years as a graphic designer and photographer, I have seen firsthand how photography, brand, identity and advertising work together. I shoot, edit and use imagery on a daily basis, so I am always on the lookout for stylish, dynamic and striking content.

When I’m not taking photos, I’m usually tending to my urban jungle.

 

KIM
MORRIS

DESIGNER
& PRINT MAKER

I am a creative problem-solver with over 10 years of graphic design experience. My greatest passion is to empower, engage and inspire people through my typography and illustrations.

When I’m not at a Mac screen, you’ll find me getting messy inking up a silkscreen.

LEAD FLOOFER

I adopted Dean and Tassia in 2016, and I very nearly have them trained. The skills that I bring to NSC include general admin, providing design feedback and, overall, being an inspiration to the team.

In my spare time, I enjoy bringing small birds into the house, sitting under my rosemary bush and sleeping at the top of the stairs.

HEAD OF SECURITY

I have worked for Lauren for almost 2 years now, providing security, affection and constantly returning lost balls.

I aspire to keep the team at NSC secure and focused on the job in-hand...SQUIRREL!

My perfect Sunday is walking my humans, followed by lunch and a good scratch in-between naps.
