    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.

    Nat is that driving force keeping many wheels spinning both within Strategy Collective and within the family of hospitality businesses that we work closely with. Born in Taranaki, she grew up in Northland before attending the University of Otago where she completed a BA and PgDip in Communications and Media. She has worked in a variety of jobs across an array of industries from hospitality to Maori tourism and university recruitment in North America. More recently she’s worked as PA and operations coordinator in the oil, gas and construction industry in Australia. Eventually, Mt Taranaki and the prospect of lush scenery and living next to the ocean lured her home and to join the Strategy Collective team where she loves the opportunity to work with a great team filled with creative thinkers. Outside of the office she enjoys spending time with her fiancé and puppy exploring the region’s outdoor offerings. When she’s not discovering new walking treks you’ll find her cycling or skating along the Coastal Walkway.
