My Latest Work



A creative leader and writer who loves story, innovation, strategy and the endless new ways of telling brand stories in a digital world, Corey has worked alongside his ECD partner Guy Roberts to re-energise and evolve the agency from respected traditional shop to successful innovation hub. Most recently this led to the development of Clever Kash, a world-first cashless moneybox product for ASB Bank which recently launched in New Zealand to huge success - winning a Gold Lion and seven nominations in the process.
Over the last ten years he has won multiple Cannes Lions, One Show Pencils, D&AD Pencils (including a rare Yellow Pencil), Webbys, AWARD Pencils, Clios, numerous Gold Effies, Spikes and countless local awards in an incredibly wide range of disciplines: from Film to UX, PR to Promo/Activation, and Branded Content to Mobile Marketing.
He also recently wrote a NZ Film Commission-funded short film, Whisker, which was accepted into film festivals around the world, and won the Future Filmmaker Award at Palm Springs.
