Anton Posa

Anton has come a long way since the mid 1980s in Auckland, when he used to pretend to be The Incredible Hulk and threaten to push people’s houses over. His father owned a string of successful fish and chip shops, his mother sang in a rock band, and his siblings were notorious talkers. So once he left home, he was strangely well equipped for a career of hard work, entertainment and communication.

After two years of hard slog in Auckland, Anton eventually decided it was time to seek out bigger challenges, so he moved to Sydney. In the seven years since then, he produced memorable campaigns for agencies such as Jack Watts Currie, DDB and AnalogFolk, teamed up with his current creative partner, John Jordan, and took his love of the NRL to another level. On weekends, you’ll find Anton either at the beach, searching for decent fish and chips or geeking out on anything to do with the NZ Warriors. He freaking loves that team…

John Jordan

John started life in a little country village in Wexford, Ireland. The youngest boy in a family of six older sisters, he learned the art of communication very quickly. To his father’s dismay he was never really into sport but, instead, loved to draw pictures and daydream about space. Always keen to do something that combined art and science, he started a degree in Computer Science but found the ‘art’ part a bit lacking. This lead him to take up a degree in the fledgling area of Multimedia, which seemed to have just the right mix.

John’s digital career didn’t start as an Art Director, however. Though he was always a conceptual thinker, he was working as a web designer, pushing pixels for AOL (one of the biggest online giants at the time), before packing his bags and heading off on a round-the-world trip. During his travels he found Australia to be quite a pleasant place to be and, seven years later, he’s still here. He worked his way through interactive design and development before eventually taking the plunge into creative and coming up with award-winning campaigns. For kicks, John likes taking photos, going to gigs and raving on about science and technology.
