ALAN WOOD

From dispatch boy to dark room to art studio, it didn’t take Alan long to learn the ropes of the advertising industry and have his talent recognized. Studying Marketing at NSW University School of Business and Strategic Planning in the Philippines he was able to fine-tune his skills and the ‘science’ of developing marketing and advertising strategy.

As a Group Account Director at Sydney’s top agencies, Alan managed some of the country’s highest spending advertising brands (Coke/McDonalds/Aust Govt) and was hugely successful as a New Business Director, winning many large brand assignments – thus for two consecutive years his was the second most successful agency in Australia.

Alan’s Sydney agency line up included J Walter Thompson, Leo Burnett, Saatchi & Saatchi, McCann Ericksson and DDB. Significant brands he was senior manager on included Benson & Hendges, Kellogg, Unilever, Commonwealth Bank (Which Bank), Australian Pork Corporation’s (Get Some Pork on Your Fork), Commonwealth Government (Telstra Float, Superannuation Guarantee & GST), McDonalds, Coca Cola, Tip Top Bakeries, Nestlé, Unilever and more.

Having had his first child, Alan and wife, Bronwyn, decided to open a new chapter in their lives and relocated to the Sunshine Coast Hinterland and to a mixed farming business. While this was a fortifying time, starting his own boutique agency, Brand House Co, has allowed Alan to bring his wealth of experience to a smaller, local market.

 

“The full circle has now been completed. I no longer sell cancer, obesity, diabetes and taxes, but our agency services genuine, quality local and regional businesses who have similar ideals and goals to our own.”

BRONWYN WOOD

A former magazine Editor, Art Director, Illustrator and Freelance Writer for some of the country’s highest circulating National Homemaker Magazine for close to twenty years in Sydney, Bronwyn has also worked in London on some of the UK’s leading magazine titles.

Her qualifications come from the art colleges of Sydney – Sydney College of the Arts and the KVB Institute of Graphic Design but she is also a person who constantly up-skills to remain relevant in an ever-changing industry. One thing she believes, however, is that great design comes from a true and sensitive understanding of the subject.

After exiting the rat-race some years ago with a small child in tow, the couple and their young family forayed in farming when they first moved to Queensland. It wasn’t long before they realised that marketing their olive products was what they did best, not the farming. It wasn’t long before they found themselves consulting to rural brands and groups and thus Brand House Co was born, servicing small business, rural, regional and not-for-profit.

Brand House Co now service clients across the country and have helped businesses from a variety of genres. Bronwyn’s daily tasks include everything from brand and logo design to website design and construction, designing marketing suites and styling photographic shoots. She also partners with photographer Leeroy Todd in a food styling/photography business, Foodography.

 

 

 

 “The striking beauty of our country in all it’s contrasts – lush rolling hills or a landscape ravaged by drought – have shaped who I am as a designer. There is always something to inspire if you only look.”
