Method Studios

We’re more than just
pretty interfaces.

We strive for exceptional results

We're not the new kids on the block, in fact we’ve been working with brands and businesses to solve problems and bring ideas to life since 2003.

Our mission was to educate and challenge the status quo. It wasn’t just about making pretty stuff, either. It was about making an impact and creating unforgettable brand experiences. We blended art and tech with smart thinking to create unique digital experiences in an overlooked medium in the country.

We’ve seen the online industry move from niche to mainstream, and watched media like search, social, big data, machine learning and virtual reality emerge as the industry grows. We’ve honed our strategic skills to near Jedi level and take pride in knowing what works, what doesn’t, and what’ll push the envelope and pay off.

Technology, audiences and talent change constantly and we move right along with them. We don’t just keep up with technology. We embrace it, live it and breathe it. We know what businesses want, where consumers talk and how best to get the results you’re looking for.

Sound good? Let's go.

  • Our Team
  • Managing Director

    Sam has vast knowledge of the digital landscape, and knows exactly how to lead us to the most brilliant results possible. She's known for her high standards, honest approach, and the ability to relate and engage with clients. Sam’s love for fashion and gaming has taken a back seat with a hands on toddler now in the mix which is proving to be much more fun and rewarding.

  • Creative Director

    Euge heads up Method's creative and development teams and has a knack for creating the perfect user experience. He really wants to be an astronaut, but spends far too long playing games and surfing the net to make it happen. Luckily, his 14 years of ‘Old Skool' experience leads to fantastic creative output that would be wasted if he were actually in space.

  • Business Director

    Brad has been a Senior Marketing expert and thought leader who has been at the forefront of the development of new media and marketing strategies for over the past decade. When he’s not working on clients’ business objectives and needs you will find him on his boat fishing, hanging out with his family or going to the movies!

  • Senior Account manager

    Having run the social media accounts for some of NZ's most recognised brands, Rhian has a knack for creating campaigns and content that connect with fans and drives results. She thrives on delivering excellent project management, and does it with a huge smile and a large dose of passion. At home you'll find her mainly in the kitchen - cooking up a storm, glass of wine in hand!

  • Senior Account Manager

    Erika knows what drives results in the online space. She loves social media, and believes it's a great way to engage customers and create brand loyalty. She's managed, planned and placed online media for clients here and across the ditch, and is committed to delivering the best results in every campaign. Erika loves travelling, particularly to anywhere warm.

  • Developer/Engineer

    A backend guru, Evgenii ensures a seamless integration of backend functionality with the front end interface. To him, what you don’t see working away in the background is just as important as what you see in the front end. When he’s not coding up a storm, you will find him practising Tae Kwon-Do, going to the gym, running or binge-watching his favourite TV series!

  • Art Director

    Royce is our multi-talented senior web designer, who is also a skilled illustrator. His experience spans across a broad range of design fields but his main passion lies in website and digital design. Although he's originally from the Philippines he has spent the last 7 years working in Singapore at a certified Google and Yahoo partner marketing agency. Royce has a slight obsession with fries and potato wedges which is equalled only by his love for the gym! A fun fact about Royce, Mariah Carey once sent him a private message giving him her personal email address so he could send her a particular artwork that he had created!

  • Designer

    Nick is the undergraduate intern, soaking up the ambience and adding youthful creativity. He spent the second half of 2015 as an exchange student at Champlain College in Vermont. Nick combines fine art with practical design; a recent project involved stiff card and a uncooperative sewing machine. When not bent over his Mac, Nick can be found drawing on any surface in arm’s reach.

  • Interface Developer

    Danillo has a large and varied background in web development and has worked on some huge brands and projects during his many years at DDB and Isobar in Brazil - Fiat, Volkswagen, Huggies, Hewlett-Packard, Samsung Electronics and Visa just to name a few! His impressive work history is backed up with some very prestigious globally recognised awards such as the D&AD, The Webby Awards, Wave Festival, Tomorrow Awards, Effie Awards, and Cannes Lions. He’s passionate about working with new technology and thrives on being creative and offering out-of the-box solutions to clients briefs. When he’s not knee deep in code you will find him playing video games, watching super hero movies and reading about science, physics, astrology and maths.

  • 3D Artist

    With a background in 3D Art, Animation and Game Design, Ben is involved in dreaming up, creating and developing a number of our interactive experiences on mobile, virtual reality, and augmented reality. He’s passionate about producing high-quality visual assets which give the user a memorable and real-life experience and he is constantly seeking bigger and more exciting projects to work on. Outside of work, he’s an obsessive gamer, sci-fi enthusiast, and plays paintball whenever he gets the chance.

Some recognition.
