I saw an opportunity in the marketplace. Bringing digital, creative, marketing work together – it was the next stage of the marketing mix in . People, data, analytics, loyalty, social media… all merged together to deliver effective results.
I’m so proud of what we’ve created at Fig Tree Digital. For me, this is the new age of creative digital marketing agency – modern, digital and consumer focused. A studio focusing on great work, great client relationships.
If I could retire tomorrow with an unlimited fortune, I don’t even have to think twice about what I would do! A long, relaxing holiday to Europe and then Fiji – they are both on my bucket list.
My other favourite way to relax is a lazy sleep in, cooking with my daughter India and reading a book. That’s my idea of bliss!
Maria’s Secret Superhero Status: Elasti-Girl. Her ability to shrink, grow and stretch any way she wants. Her quick moves and fast actions can save the day!
Maria’s favourite inspirational quote: “You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose.” (Dr Seuss)

“When I saw the job ad for Fig Tree Digital I particularly noticed the huge variety of projects the business had produced. For my next career move, I didn’t want a start-up – there’s so many out there now. I wanted to join a company with great experience. I haven’t been disappointed. Now I can say I am creating truly innovative work and I enjoy going to work every day. We have a great team.
Fig Tree Digital believes in work life balance, so if you called me on a Sunday, I wouldn’t be at the office. My ideal Sunday starts with a good sleep in, followed an ultimate Frisbee tournament. Then I’ll finish off with a night of fishing – and a public holiday the next day!”
Obed’s Secret Superhero Status: Flash, because he can think and read as fast as he runs. PS Here’s a Trivia Night fact for you – Flash’s nickname is the ‘Scarlet Speedster’.

Andrew’s Secret Superhero Status: Although not alike in stature or temperament, Andrew shares a similar appetite to Fatso from the Casper the Friendly Ghost franchise. More superhuman than superhero, but that’s a matter of perspective!
