Zoe Pollitt - With co-founder, college buddy and partner extraordinaire Natasha Hasemer, Zoë and the team at eskimo specialises in branding, campaigns and design for premium markets with clients they love.
Having started her career in publishing as an Art Director for a variety of titles including Inside Sport, Smash Hits, Australian Style and Vogue Australia, Zoë's passion and experience in the fashion, design and visual communications industry has seen her work on major brand evolutions with clients such as Oroton, SABA, AMP Capital Shopping Centres, Macquarie, Anthology and the highly successful Westfield Premium cluster.
With a vision to find beauty in everything from the idea to the creative solution, Zoë believes that design and creativity is fundamental to business success and a perfect world.
Linda Jukic - Linda's holistic approach combines solid strategic thinking with a strong design sensibility, always putting the brand and consumer at the heart of what she does. Applying those principles has not only gained good results for her clients but has won personal accolades such as the City Of Milan Young Designer of the Year Award and a coveted AGDA Pinnacle among many others. With an ability to find solutions in all forms across all touchpoints and experiences, Linda has completed major projects for a diverse range of organisations including Westfield, Westpac, Commonwealth Bank, BT Financial Group, The University of Sydney, Brand Parramatta, Yarra Valley Water, Trenery, the Australian Chamber Orchestra and Bell Shakespeare. A lover of books, Linda not only collects them but has self-published her own series, titled ‘Seen By Her'
Jacqueline Moroney - An extraordinary willingness to jump in and try different things has led Jacqueline to work at some of Australia's leading design companies, run her own business, tutor at the University of Technology Sydney and design and manufacture home wares. From place branding for the country of Botswana to the National Museum of Australia, Macquarie University and Vogue's Fashions Night Out, Jacqueline has built a career that has seen her bring insight to clients across many different sectors and countries with a balance of iQ(head) and eQ(heart) and discover that the solutions aren't always visual.
Yolanda Vega - Yolanda represented Australia as a ‘Young Leader' at the 2009 International Women's Forum World Conference and was part of the delegation to represent Australia at the first Women's Economic Summit chaired by Hilary Clinton in September 2012. Yolanda's mission is to ensure women business owners have a voice as well as the programs and policies they require to be more independent and their business more profitable.
