"ARTIFACT"
-N
1. SOMETHING OF HISTORICAL IMPORTANCE, MADE OR GIVEN SHAPE BY MAN, SUCH AS A TOOL OR A WORK OF ART.

AS A FOUNDING MEMBER OF ARTIFACT, ANDY WAS THERE IN 1994 AND PROUDLY LEADS THE TEAM TODAY. HIS VISION OF THE COMPANY AS AN ADAPTIVE, FLEXIBLE, CREATIVE ENTREPRENEURSHIP HAS MEANT THAT ARTIFACT DOESN'T FOLLOW THE TRADITIONAL AGENCY MODEL. THIS VISION HAS ENABLED THE COMPANY TO CONSTANTLY KEEP UP WITH THE CHANGING MEDIA LANDSCAPE AND ULTIMATELY DELIVER ON WHAT CLIENTS AND BRANDS REALLY NEED FROM A STRATEGIC, CREATIVE, ADVERTISING PARTNER.

WITH HIS ROOTS SET IN CREATIVITY, BLENDED WITH 20 YEARS OF BUSINESS EXPERIENCE, CREATIVITY RUNS THROUGH HIS VEINS AND ANDY LIVES THE CORE OF THE BUSINESS AND LEADS FROM THE FRONT.

"THE BUSINESS HAS ALWAYS BEEN ABOUT THE PEOPLE, AND COUPLED WITH THAT, OUR BELIEF IN FORGING STRONG RELATIONSHIPS WITH CLIENTS. PEOPLE DO BUSINESS WITH PEOPLE, NOT COMPANIES."

 

 

SANDY STARTED OUT IN RESEARCH AND GAINED INVALUABLE EXPERIENCE AS BRAND MANAGER AT WIMPY, SANDY WAS HEADHUNTED TO JOIN ARTIFACT AS CLIENT SERVICE DIRECTOR IN 2001. SINCE 2001 SANDY HAS SERVED AS ONE OF THE SENIOR BRAINS, TRUSTED WITHIN THE AGENCY WITH A VITAL INPUT INTO OPERATIONS, CO-ORDINATION AND MANAGEMENT. TODAY, WITH HER DUAL EXPERIENCE ON CLIENT AND AGENCY SIDE, SHE BALANCES BUSINESS AND BRAND OBJECTIVES WITH AGENCY PASSION, PURPOSE AND PERFECTION, AS SHE HEADS UP CLIENT SERVICE AND BUSINESS UNITS.

AS WE LIKE TO THINK OF IT - IF THE AGENCY IS A BIG PUZZLE BOARD, SANDY IS THE ONE WHO MANAGES ALL THE PIECES AND PUTS IT TOGETHER EFFORTLESSLY.

SANDY IS PASSIONATE ABOUT PEOPLE AND CLIENT SERVICE AND IS COMMITTED WITH A RARE SENSE OF CUSTOMER EXCELLENCE. HER MARKETING SKILLS MEAN THAT SHE CAN SOLVE PROBLEMS FROM BOTH A CLIENT AND AGENCY PERSPECTIVE.

 

 

TALK ABOUT SOLID FOUNDATIONS! HAVING JOINED IN 2000 BRENT IS PART OF THE ORIGINAL ARTIFACT DNA AND WHENEVER WE FORGET OR DOUBT OUR ROOTS AND WHERE WE CAME FROM IT'S SURE THAT HE WILL BE THE ONE TO REMIND US. BRENT IS PART OF WHAT DEMONSTRATES WHY ARTIFACT HAS BEEN SO CONSISTENT, FROM A TEAM MAN POINT OF VIEW AS WELL AS THE WORK DELIVERED SINCE THE EARLY DAYS. BRENT WAS OUR ORIGINAL WEB DEVELOPER BACK WHEN IT WASN'T EVEN A "THING" TO HAVE A WEBSITE. HE WAS ALSO OUR ORIGINAL MULTIMEDIA GUY AND PIONEERED MULTIMEDIA WITHIN ARTIFACT WHEN THAT ALSO WASN'T A THING. TRY SELLING ANIMATION AND 3D BACK IN 2001? TODAY IT'S PART OF EVERYTHING WE DO AND BRENT'S STUDIO IS GUIDED BY AND BASED ON THE SAME FOUNDATION WE STARTED OFF WITH.

BRENT WAS OUR ORIGINAL WEB DEVELOPER, BACK WHEN IT WASN´T EVEN A "THING" TO HAVE A WEBSITE.

 

 

BY THE TIME STUART HAD JOINED ARTIFACT AS HEAD OF PRODUCTION, HE HAD ALREADY DONE THE HARD YARDS OF LEARNING WHAT THE GAME WAS ABOUT. FROM A BASE IN CREATIVE TO KNUCKLING DOWN IN THE DIGITAL, PRINT AND PRODUCTION ARENA IN VARIOUS ROLES, THROUGH WORKING AS A PRODUCTION GUY IN A MAJOR MALL AND EVEN RUNNING HIS OWN BUSINESS. SINCE 2006 STUART HAS BROUGHT A NEW DIMENSION, AND THINKING, TO HOW WE SOURCE, COST AND PRODUCE PRODUCTS, PRINTING, COLLATERAL AND GIFTING AT ARTIFACT. TODAY STUART IS PRODUCTION DIRECTOR HAVING SPENT 8 YEARS OWNING HIS CRAFT.

IT ALWAYS STARTS WITH A PROBLEM OR BUSINESS OBJECTIVE TO WHICH STUART APPLIES HIS EXPERIENCE TO PRODUCE THE RIGHT SOLUTION, AT THE RIGHT TIME AND AT THE RIGHT COST.

SERIOUSLY... TEST HIM!

 

 

EVER HEAR THE SAYING "BEEN THERE, DONE THAT"? WELL, OUR EXECUTIVE CREATIVE DIRECTOR, BRUCE, IS THE MAN WHO CAN CLAIM IT. BOASTING A TRACK RECORD WITH SOME OF THE BIGGEST AGENCIES AROUND THE COUNTRY AND THE RECIPIENT OF NUMEROUS LOCAL AND INTERNATIONAL CREATIVE AWARDS.

AT ARTIFACT, WE PUT PREMIUM IMPORTANCE ON EXPERIENCE, ESPECIALLY LIFE AND BUSINESS EXPERIENCE.

WE WANT TO UNLOCK REAL UNDERSTANDING AND REAL SOLUTIONS FOR CLIENTS AND BRANDS, THAT CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE, WE'RE NOT ABOUT SMOKE AND MIRRORS. THAT'S WHY BRUCE MAKES SUCH AN IMPORTANT IMPACT ON THE ARTIFACT CREATIVE MISSION EVERY DAY, INSPIRING OUR TEAM INTERNALLY AND GUIDING OUR CLIENTS AND PARTNERS EXTERNALLY TOWARD THE RESULTS THAT MATTER, WHILE STAMPING HIS AUTOGRAPH ON GREAT CREATIVE WORK.
