Alison Cooke

Alison Cooke

Strategy and Communications Director

Alison is a strategic Communications Consultant in the areas of fundraising and marketing management. She got started in a regional advertising agency and hasn’t looked back. Now she has almost twenty years’ experience in senior marketing management, event management, public relations and fundraising roles, mostly in the non-government space. Ali wears glasses, so she looks cluey and tends to come across like she knows what she is talking about. She is handy with a camera, has spent a lot of time in Africa, South Asia, China and the Pacific understanding international development stuff and has one mean daily action list. Ali is a motivator and loves building and leading successful teams. She has two speeds, flat out or stopped, and not much range in between. In her spare time, Ali is a mum, wife and likes to ponder existential questions about how to make the world a better place, mostly over a glass of red wine. Here’s a tip – Ali tells it how it is. Cut the small talk, she likes to get straight to the point.

Rosie Wheeler

Rosie Wheeler

Creative Director

Rosie is our Creative Director and Graphic Designer with over 10 years’ experience in the Graphic Design industry. Rosie can paint and draw stuff… and she goes alright on a Mac. Her home is full of beautiful artwork that her, or her arty husband, have created. Rosie instinctively knows what to do with a creative brief to bring a client’s vision to life, in print or on a digital platform. Her ability to find the nexus between the concept and creative execution is crisp, engaging and evocative. Her creativity flourishes in the garden as well where she has a reputation for growing good kale. Rosie is also a mum and she’s tidy. More tidy than Ali. Aesthetics is important to Rosie, she observes colours, textures, tones and mood, and creates beautiful design from her observations and intuition. She also has a very big dog who is often mistaken for a Shetland pony when they head out for their daily walk.

David Shooter

David Shooter

Senior Designer

Dave is passionate about design. He is our Senior Designer with broad experience in digital and print design. Dave creates layered images with synchronistic design elements elevating the nuances of a client’s vision into visually appealing designs…. what we mean is that Dave’s design is red hot. Dave has a sharp eye for capturing those subtleties in his creative work which is clean and un-complicated. Dave also has three ankle bitters and is pretty good with an animation as well. Just saying…

Rosie Price

Rosie mark II has a broad range of skills which she brings to the team with energy and focus. Rosie has hit the ground running with Wild Hive supporting our clients with market research, social media and design. She is keen as mustard and ready to tackle the world…. after all, she was a school prefect so she’s just an all-round nice gal. Word on the street is she makes a great cappuccino or latte too if that’s your flavour.

Lisa Ferguson

Marketing Coordination

Lisa has been connected to the media and marketing industry since 2001 where she started off in an advertising agency that Ali got her along to. Lisa is comfortable wearing many hats. She facilitates the relationship with one of our major clients and we appreciate how versatile she is. Lisa can host a high calibre celebrity in the morning (Judith Lucy no less), grab a few professional promo shots, piece together an editorial for the local rag and call it a day. Nothing phases Lis, – probably because she hums her way through the day…. something we’ve all learnt to love about her.
