Hello There

the elevator Pitch

Actually, we don't have an elevator. We have a roller door.

And behind it we conceive and communicate brand experiences.

We are a multidisciplinary team of talents of many persuasions, working locally and globally with top tier clients to create provocative ideas that live within advertising, entertainment, and technology.

We've been called a digital agency, a branded content company, the advertising model of the future, even a bunch of dreamers.

Truth is, we're a bit of each.

From concept to creation, we pride ourselves on exceeding expectations, with a progressive and agile approach that eliminates the boundaries between departments, disciplines, cultures, and businesses.

Culture is very important, but it's not formalized in any way. The atmosphere is casual, inclusive, and fully supportive of the realm of possibility.

And we're unusually nice to strangers.

NEWS

 
11 June 2015

We've had a bunch of new peeps join the Augusto team lately. 

Louisa Golding has joined us in the new position of Head of Accounts and Business Development (It's a long title, I know, we're working on it). She brings with her extensive experience in both agency and client side marketing and is now charged with heading up our accounts team.

James Anderson has wandered down the road from the Food Truck Garage and into our hearts as our new in-house Director and DOP. He's a champ and a charmer with an extensive list of long-form credits including The Food Truck, A Night At The Classic and Funny Roots.

Simon McMahon joins us our new Senior Designer. He brings over ten years' design experience working in New Zealand, Canada and the UK on brands like  AA Insurance, AMP, ATEED, pretty much any company starting with an 'A'.

We've also taken the opportunity to make an honest man of Shaun Madgwick. The long-time contractor turned employee is now officially our Senior Motion Designer. He used to work for The Darkroom in London and we have the UK's stringent migrant visa policies to thank for him coming home to us. 

And lastly, we're proud to welcome Oliver Sealy into the new role of General Manager. He joined us over a year ago as part of our content development team and then we thought 'Hey, why don't we let him develop the whole shabang?!'. 

It's exciting times. We'll get around to updating the rest of the site soon. We promise.
