Julius Cruickshank

Creative Director

Sydney, Australia
As Creative Director of Sydney-based B2B marketing agency Elastic Digital, I grew with the company from its humble beginnings (of two) to the global company of 40+ employees across three continents.

My role involved managing and mentoring the creative team through digital solutions - from initial concept to execution - as well as liaising with and guiding clients throughout the entire design process.

My holistic approach combines solid strategic thinking with strong design, always putting the brand and consumer at the heart of what I do.

With an ability to find solutions in all forms, across all touch points and experiences, I have completed major and high profile projects for some of the world’s largest IT clients, including Cisco, VMware, Symantec, NetApp, EMC and HP.
