about

Hi, I'm Dillon - a multidisciplinary senior creative, do-gooder, plant collector, and parent to many rescued animals.

After starting my career in photo media and advertising 15 years ago, I've spent the past 8 years working alongside inspiring change-making Campaign and Communication Managers. I've developed content for various campaigning topics, including LGBTQIA+ rights, people seeking asylum, elections, animal rights, policy change, plastic waste, and climate change.

I thrive in agile and innovative environments where I can utilise the full breadth of my expertise, bringing purpose-driven content to life. My varied industry experience has seen me generating content for dozens of multi-platform campaigns, providing engaging solutions across design, marketing, photography, videography, web production, communications, brand identity, and digital media. 

When I'm not creating content, you will find me tending to my (arguably over) abundance of indoor and outdoor plants or caring for my rescued fur family.

Head of Programs and Legal Counsel at Australian Alliance for Animals

Dillon is a brilliant designer, with an incredible eye for detail. She intuitively understands briefs and always delivers well within deadlines. As a member of the team, she is friendly, respectful and a general pleasure to work with. She has a broad skill set, which is extremely useful for small organisations who need one person to be able to perform multiple roles. The products of this powerful combination of skills are always beautiful, and finished to a very high quality standard. I can't count how many times I have received compliments on the work she produced for us.

Dillon is a fantastic and intuitive designer with their finger on the pulse for all things creative. I had the pleasure of working with Dillon on many campaigns and was always impressed by their ability to produce unique and high quality work. From conception of project to the roll-out, Dillon always delivered the brief on-time and exceeded expectation. Dillon's incredible eye for detail ensures that they were always on trend and puts 110% into each project. Not only is Dillon a fantastic designer, but also has a huge skill set in copywriting, social media, website design (back/front-end) and understands the need of a well-maintained CRM for campaign effectiveness and supporter engagement.

Marketing Manager at

Tactix Business Coaching

I worked with Dillon in the digital team at LUSH Cosmetics for almost a year. Dillon is one of the most creative and talented people I have ever had the chance of working with. They are exceptionally quick at picking up not only tasks but brand guidelines and suggesting ideas to help build the brand. Dillon was skilled across all levels of digital - social media, EDMs, e-commerce management, as well as creative through design, content planning and creation. I would recommend Dillon to any organisation looking for a truly passionate, loyal and hard working employee.

Head of Communications for
FOUR PAWS in Australia

I had the pleasure of working with Dillon for two years when she was the Digital and Design Officer for Voiceless, the animal protection institute. Dillon was an exemplary colleague who brought a high level of professionalism to our graphic design and digital projects. She was a team player, assisting others in their roles while also keen to share her excellent design skills with the team. She would be an asset to any organisation and a valuable employee.
