We built Ply because we believe good things are made into greater, game-changing things when you layer them together.
Whether it's the collaborative spirit and unique mix of the crew we're proud to call our team, or the way we combine our solutions in brand and tech to be greater than work done in isolation, we really believe in things being better together.
Each of us brings a unique background and high level of skill to the table; but it's the connective tissue and the way we collaborate to build on ideas that leads to the results our clients ❤️.
We're all deep thinkers, UX people and driven to do quality work that solves real problems. We're also fans of dad jokes, crafty beers and delicious eats.
Phillip's love of surfing and charming Irish accent are just a cover for his true uber-developer computer wizard self. He's got a PHD in Computer Science; no big deal, just don't call him Dr Phil.
Mark coordinates and dabbles in all the elements that make a great Ply project. A dual personality (Gemini, it figures) who flips between spreadsheets and writing crafty copy.
Ply's puzzle solver, Jeremy pulls together our design and development pieces to create delightful user experiences.
UI & UX Lead
The startup tragic of the team, Dave's entrepreneurial spirit can never be squashed. He questions everything, always looking for better ways. He's also king of the dad jokes.
Equally adept at shredding the keys on his guitar or his keyboard, 'Hubble' puts the polish on our digital creations with his Front End Dev skills. He also inspires the rest of us to up our beard game.
With 25 years at the helm of design, our seasoned vet and salty dog of the sea, Ant brings oodles of experience and a zen mindset to keep the good vibes flowing.
Senior Brand Designer
The drummer of the band who keeps us all marching to the right beat, Zoe's PM skills and bright spark ensure our projects run smooth with just the right amount of fun along the way.
We see the value we create for our partners increase exponentially when we're involved in building the foundational layers of branding and messaging, then bringing this story to life through digital.
It's truly knowing your brand from the ground up, and defining a clear position that gives us the insight and understanding that leads to great outcomes.
Along the way, we always keep the user and their goals, and how they will experience all the various touch points with the brand in mind. This unique infusion of UX thinking just makes the end result that much sweeter.
We believe the best things happen when you bring people together, treat them with respect and empathy, set out to build something great together, and remember to enjoy the ride.
This doesn't just go for our own team, but everyone we work with. Including you 👋.
Our ethos is to work with you, not for you.We want to pair your expertise and knowledge of your business with our skills in communication, design and development. Good things will happen.
We don't have all the answers - but we know how to find them.
It starts by going deeper than the rest till we really understand your business, brand, challenges and opportunities. We want to know your problems intimately, so we can work out how best to solve them.
It helps that we've worked in a variety of businesses ourselves, so we have a deeper insight into what you're working towards.
At Ply we're not fans of "good enough".
We try and build depth into all of our work, and then try and push it that bit further. We're always striving to do better work, find smarter ways of working, and take a few calculated leaps forward.
We bring this commitment to striving for quality to every project.
Our quest for learning and improving our craft is never satiated. We're always looking to learn new lessons, improve our process and grow as humans.
We read (a lot), but we also try and balance this with brick-by-brick progression so we're building on something solid and not overhauling what works.
We aim to bring this learning spirit to our projects too, sharing what we know with our clients so we deliver value beyond the work.
