Why are we life-changing?

For every 10 hours of full-cost design we provide, we sponsor 1 hour of design support to emerging community and women-lead organisations.

We do this because we believe that doing business + helping the community go hand-in-hand, and that increasing women’s empowerment and economic well-being helps everyone.

We’re driven to pioneer a different way of providing businesses and organisations with the design services they need. We also want to help business increase their corporate social responsibility and connection with the community. It’s good for everyone!

Jack Hayes

Jack Hayes

Communications Associate


Superpower:
Storyteller
Currently Learning: Professional development in minority groups, sustainable governance

Qualifications: Bachelor of Communications Honours (I)

Jack is a communications graduate and expert spinner of yarns from Griffith University. His focus on how people communicate has led to an appreciation and respect for the power of words, particularly in their ability to either encourage or disrupt social cohesion. Majoring in political and intercultural communication, Jack’s travels during university – to countries like Malaysia, Turkey, Morocco and China – has only furthered his love of communication across cultures and communities. 

During Australia’s marriage equality postal vote of 2017, Jack conducted foundational research into queer political representation in local, state and federal government. This research was collated into an Honours thesis, “Politics and Queer Identity: A Qualitative Study of Queer Politicians in Australia.” In the future, Jack hopes to continue his research into queer representation in politics, but for now, he is our resident storyteller who helps us, and our clients, communicate their stories and impact!
