Welcome Joy!

We’re delighted to introduce the newest member of the Universal family, Joy Li! Bringing to the table bright ideas and a keen eye for detail, Joy will be a fresh-faced addition to grace the screens of our remote studio. While this isn’t her first rodeo, Joy has accumulated four years of brand experience under her belt and has worked with the likes of Adobe and HP. When she isn’t locked-down, she likes to go outside and snorkelling. We’re glad we can welcome her into our home(s).

Get ready to open wide for Flaus as we help them bring their ingenuity and dedication to sustainability in the oral care and beauty space. We can't wait to welcome you into their world.

Iku (Case Study Coming Soon)

Want to look after the earth? Lunch is a good place to start. IKU started as Sydney's first plant-based eatery from a tiny shop in Glebe in 1985.

Case study coming soon.
