Max is a natural problem solver, using his creative talent to find solutions to challenging projects.

 

Max uses design as a communication platform to bring ideas to life. Over the last 15 years he has cultivated a deep understanding of the various aesthetic requirements in different media forms. Now armed with a keen intuition and an eye for detail, Max heads up the design team as Creative Director, overseeing all work that comes out of the studio, from digital to print and everything in between.
 
Before joining Aamplify, Max was based in Melbourne, leading the in-house creative team for a telecommunications company. Moving home to NZ has been a bit of an adjustment, but he definitely doesn’t miss the snakes (not that he ever saw one).
 
When he’s not at his computer – Mac of course – Max enjoys getting out on the court, field or pitch and playing sport. Top mentions include golf, tennis, soccer and basketball.

The Creative Chugger

Born in Poland, Karol has had an interest in technology since a young age.

 

At 5 he received his first computer, and by 11 he had coded his first website. Karol credits his creative streak to the family business – a Newmarket-based art gallery, maintained by his parents since 2003. 

 

Karol started his graphic design career in high school, and continued doing freelance work throughout University, where he studied towards a BCom/BA in Marketing and Anthropology. Now as part of the Aamplify creative team, he hopes to learn as much as possible about design aesthetics and digital marketing platforms.

Digital Designer

Painting the town red, figuratively and literally

With a keen interest in graphic design, digital marketing and branding, Karol is a natural fit in the Aamplify team. 

Matt has always been naturally design-inclined and his skills are entirely self-taught. He learned Photoshop at the age of 12 and taught himself programming and developing in his teens.

 

This drive to grow his expertise has become addictive and Matt now counts print design, video editing, photography and film among his many skills.


From building websites at 14, Matt has gone on to do freelance web development, as well as honing his skills in graphic design at his father’s architecture firm. The aspect he enjoys most about his job is getting to work on new projects all the time, thinking up new ideas and applying lessons from previous work to new scenarios.


Matt’s hobbies include watching cricket, cooking and music. In fact, he used to be a DJ on George FM until a former Prime Minister's son took over.
