Business is built on ideas
With a strong concept, branding becomes a long-lasting connection. We don’t just make things look pretty. Our designs are based on ideas.

Creative is only as good as the brief. We have a systems in place to be sure the brief is as clear as possible and we do all the necessary research before jumping in to any project.
No whinging no bitching
Keeping a positive atmosphere is paramount in our studio. Nothing is personal, and we embrace and encourage feedback from both clients and internally. We love to have fun and have feedback sandwiches for lunch.
This is just the beginning

Our Core Team
Jackie joined the team as our Studio Coordinator. When she’s not answering your calls or helping to keep client projects on track you’ll find her going mad in her other role as a mum to two very energetic young boys. While the demands of her home life sometimes leave her rocking in a corner with a bottle of wine, in the studio she’s a sea of calm and is always ready to help out with whatever needs doing at Spicy HQ.
With a degree in social science, Bianca knows how to read people and trends. She creates kick ass social strategy and campaigns that are uniquely developed for business’s and their targeted demographics. Creating a voice for your business, she bridges the gap between the business and buyer. When she’s not chatting to millennials, Bianca enjoys a good game of cards against humanity, alongside some Thai food and her 2 pugs.
Caio a web development king. Coding with the latest web technologies he brings websites to life! You might also find him cheering on Palmeiras.
Vatsh began developing not long after taking his first steps. In his former wild and free days as a student, you could find him hacking into the university server to avoid sitting exams. Despite this, he still learnt a few things and successfully graduated with a Bachelors degree in Computer Applications. He’s currently studying for his Masters in Information Technology at UTS. When he’s not flat out bringing great design to life, he’s winding down with a good book or watching the cricket.
Lisa is a busy girl! Working on all things digital marketing, she helps clients obliterate their targets with great blogs, EDMs and social media marketing campaigns. When she’s not busy here she has her head in the books, studying for a double degree in Commerce and Media (with majors in Marketing, PR & Advertising). But it’s not all work and no play – to unwind from the grind Lisa takes in whatever live music she can when she’s not hitting Sydney’s foodie hot spots
