Marcus Saunders
Creative Thinker & Doer

About

New age fun with a vintage feel – that’s my creative philosophy. Make it look fresh, but feel timeless.

HELLO!

I’m Marcus, a freelance art director and graphic designer living in Hobart, Tasmania with my wife, two boys and three chickens. I’ve been a creative for 20+ years and I just love creating things: brands, TV ads, websites, logos, books, magazines… you name it, I can do it.

Here are five things I’d like you to know about me:

1.
I don’t think being creative is a real job, seriously! You get to make really cool stuff for people and they trust you to do it… that’s unreal!

2.
I’m also a fly fishing guide and I built my own boat The Black Spinner. Check out my side hustle at Camden Fishing.

3.
One of my favourite projects ever was creating Captain Hurricane, the mascot for the Hobart Hurricanes cricket team.

4.
I’m completely obsessed with bears; brown, black, grizzly, they’re all amazing. I spend too much time watching them on the Katmai National Park Bear Cam. 🐻

5.
Once, I won a competition to meet Tom Cruise in Dublin… he’s really short.
