With nearly 25 years branding experience under his belt, there isn’t much in the advertising and design game Brent hasn’t seen. Originally trained as a graphic designer, his entrepreneurial nature and love of business has seen him transition to the strategic side of branding and business development. He does keep his creative side alive though – through advertising copywriting which has become a real passion.
Equally at home around a board table as he is knee deep in mud with a camera, he cites the variety of work and the remarkable people he’s met as the reason he loves his profession. His need to see his clients succeed goes way beyond business, it’s taken on as a personal responsibility. That’s why Devcich&Co. has no “mid-level” or “small” clients – in Brent’s eyes every client is a big deal.

Kerry heads up the Devcich&Co. design team and it’s his creative work that we use as the benchmark for excellence. Affectionately known in the studio as “dad”, Kerry is living proof that designers do in fact get better with age.
With career highlights including meeting Prince Charles while working in London, winning Gold at the Best Design awards and beating the boss at go kart racing you’d be forgiven for thinking Kerry had already fulfilled all his professional ambitions. Nothing could be further from the truth, he’s more fired up about exploring design now as he was nearly 12 years ago when he first teamed up with Brent Devcich.
Outside work, Kerry’s can’t escape the “dad” tag, with his proudest achievement being his wife and three kids. When the chores are over good luck catching him, he’ll either be shredding up some single track on his mountain bike or noseriding his longboard.

Stacey made the move to Devcich&Co. after a number of years travelling and working for some of the giants of the ad world. With a serious case of wanderlust, we share her with departure lounges and exotic locations. Fortunately for us she always comes back.
Stacey’s our resident packaging guru, with a wealth of retail and FMCG experience with blue chip clients. She takes the lead on all of Devcich&Co. packaging projects, and is known for the generous way she conducts tastings and distributes product samples (maybe a bit less generous when it’s cheesecake).
Stacey may be an accomplished designer, but what really makes her unique is an eye for detail that would leave any surgeon feeling a bit clumsy. Stacey’s perfect weekend is spent soaking up inspiration with friends at her Coromandel bach, with her dog Chase, a beer and some fresh snapper.

Julia is the dedicated account manager we deploy to look after larger organisations and clients engaged in long term marketing programmes. Don’t be fooled by her engaging personality though, behind that bubbly persona is a diehard geek who loves nothing more than being immersed in market research and a tasty spreadsheet or two.
Julia’s impressive CV includes a stint at the brand mecca that is Red Bull, as well as less extreme roles in sectors such as finance, pharmaceutical and public sector roles with both the Canadian and Australian Governments.
With a young family spare time is a bit of a scarce commodity, but when the opportunity does arise you’ll find Julia running, biking or skiing… which allows her to indulge in her other great passion, potato chips.

Originally hailing from the Central Hawkes Bay, Christina is a “mountie in training”. Having recently returned from New York, she’s taken to the Mount lifestyle like a duck to water. With the best address and the best tan you’d be forgiven for thinking she was born here.
With an eye for nice things and the best fashion sense in the office, it’s Christina that keeps us up to date with what the cool kids are doing. Her refreshing design style and ability to absorb new skills and styles quickly has her on a fast path to design greatness.
While consuming ginger crunch and coffee during her breaks, Christina dreams of being horizontal by a pool in Thailand with a marg in hand. Interestingly, Christina claims to be youngest person in history to have read the entire internet.

Donovan or ‘The Don’ as he is lovingly nicknamed, has seen the light, relocating from Auckland to achieve the work life balance nirvana we call life at the Mount. His varied natural environments include the bush, the surf and the street where he can be found indulging in a bit of Capoeira. Hailing from Cape Town it’s fortunate for him that he has absolutely no interest in rugby.
Within the Devcich team, Donovan has responsibility of producing finished artwork and managing the web development for a number of Devcich&Co.’s key clients. With a background in the high stress world of newspaper advertising, pressure and tight deadlines simply make him laugh.
Easy going, easy to get on with, and according to the ladies very easy on the eye… say hello to The Don.

Keri Anne joins us straight from the Wintec School of Media Arts. After brief period as an intern at Devcich&Co. the team quickly recognised that Keri not only had great potential as a designer, but also had the right attitude and an exceptional work ethic.
We’re all excited to have Keri on board and we’re looking forward to watching her develop as a designer over the coming years.

Sue manages all the fun stuff – in other words, our accounts. She’s the reason we pay all our accounts on time, and chase you when you don’t…
There aren’t many places in the world that Sue hasn’t been too, or many jobs she hasn’t done, but these days she’s firmly planted at her hobby farm in Omokoroa. With a family and extensive gardens to look after life’s busy, but never too busy to steal some time away on the lake or mountain biking with her husband and two sons.
