Lany the Dog

Chewer of Bones

Who couldn’t love that face? Lany is an English Staffy who adds a lot of fun to the office where she greets all clients with gusto and will leap on any lap that will have her.

Staffies can suffer from separation anxiety, so she’s delighted to be alongside the team playing her role in the daily activities. Loyal, in-your-face, playful and totally adorable, Lany is a big part of the business and adds a warm fuzzy dimension to the working day.

Eliza Mansfield-Lewis

The Intern

I am really excited to be working with Eliza Mansfield-Lewis another wonderful Swinburne Honours Design student. Eliza moved to Melbourne from Ballarat to study and I am thrilled she will be working with The Brownbill Effect for 2023. Eliza blew me away with the variety of work in her folio and “can-do attitude” in our interview and has started on a wonderful note by submitting some fabulous campaign designs. It’s going to be a great year working together, I’m really excited for us both. And Eliza and Lany get on like old friends, she is a dog person .. phew!

Charlotte Tiong


Charlotte is a recent graduate of Communication Design Honours from Swinburne University. She loves fashion and photography, which is fabulous for me to be able to spoil her by introducing her to photographers work and taking her out to see some studios in action too. Charlotte and I worked together when she was in her third year at Swinburne University, so I know what a talented designer she is and how super organised as well. Charlotte also totally understands the Brownbill Effect brand and is already looking at updating the cover page on the website with new material on day one on her own…I love that. I can’t wait for all of you to meet and work with Charlotte, she is going to be another huge asset to the business.

Jess Do


Jess is a recent graduate of Communication Design Honours from Swinburne University. Jess loves drawing and photography, especially shooting film which excites me a lot and I look forward to lending her some old cameras to play with. Jess’s design style is contemporary and innovative and she enjoys learning new skills. Jess has spent her year with me and I have loved every minute of working with this talented young designer. Jess is thoughtful in her approach, creative and super smart. I am thrilled she is still freelancing for me along with sending her out on other jobs.
