The lure of the mountain, sea and family brought her and her husband back to Taranaki where they co-founded Urban Earthworks—of which, of course, Dani looks after the books.

Jeremy Hill

Senior Designer - BDesign (Industrial)
Born and bred in Taranaki, after attending Francis Douglas Memorial College Jeremy studied Industrial Design at Victoria University of Wellington. He went on to become a freelance graphic designer and eventually ran his own creative firm. Many will recognise Jeremy from The Block NZ where he and his partner (Cat) claimed the People's Choice Award. This experience inspired him into two years as a kitchen designer and to also pursue his favourite pastime of jumping on the tools and renovating anything in his home that you can swing a hammer or a paint brush at. Now, as one of our senior designers, he loves that no job is the same—being able to explore everything from illustration to digital and being involved in the early idea stages of a new company and seeing it grow.
