Auckland creative agency BCG2 has welcomed three new hires to their Grey Lynn offices. Dean Taylor as Senior Account Director, Gabi Knipe as Digital Media Designer, and Renate Stillwell as Mac Op and Graphic Designer.

Bringing over 20 years’ experience to the agency, Dean has worked on both sides of the Tasman in social media, PR, creative and talent management for top brands such as Warner Music, Virgin Australia and McDonald’s. Now he’ll be applying his skills to Beef + Lamb New Zealand, Connexa, Caliber Wealth, the Little Miracles Trust and Property Brokers.

Hailing from London’s Camden Town, but now calling NZ her home, Gabi Knipe joins BCG2 with 17 years’ ad agency experience. When she’s not submerged in UX, digital design, motion graphics, and video editing, you’ll find Gabi DJing, skateboarding, and teaching yoga.

Renate Stillwell brings 15 years’ experience as a Mac Op and Graphic Designer, specialising in print and pre-press production. She’s passionate about great typography and always searching for a new favourite typeface. You’ll also find her on the lookout for rare comics as she’s an avid comic book reader and collector.

Managing Director, Michael Jarvis said: “We’re incredibly lucky to have three super-talented team members join our ranks. Gabi, Dean and Renate’s wide range of skills and experience will let us continue to be super nimble in our service approach. Selfishly, Gabi can also help me improve my skateboarding skills as I relive my youth.”
