Hello
Welcome to Swaytech. Your business growth partner.

Let’s start with a bit of an introduction.

Swaytech is a boutique marketing, communications, web and digital design consultancy, who specialise in partnering with companies in the technology industry.  Yes, that’s a fancy way of saying we’re an agency… but that’s because we’re more than just an agency.

We love what we do and we love working with great people to create cool ideas and take them to market, both at home and internationally. We actively work alongside our clients to grow their brands. No job’s too big or too small (but we do love a challenge). 
So check out our site and see what we’re all about and how we might be able to help you.

Swaytech gets technology, marketing and my customer. As a marketer it’s important to build a team of smart people to deliver the best possible result – Swaytech is that team for me.

    I have extensive experience working in the technology sector and with New Zealand tech companies. I’m extremely passionate about the industry and the unique marketing challenges that come with such a fast paced, ever changing, but always exciting space!

    My role at Swaytech is busy and varied - working with a range of clients on everything from high level strategy development to campaign management and event planning and execution. I particularly enjoy building brands through strategic thinking then bringing them to life with effective communications and experiences.

    When I’m not working you’ll find me at the zoo with my two-year old in tow or checking out paint swatches for my latest DIY project.

    I'm Liz and I'm a marketing consultant at Swaytech. My role is to work with clients to develop effective marketing campaigns and collateral.  

    I started out in life as a lawyer where I specialised in information and communications technology. I realised that I loved technology but hadn't found the right angle –  I wanted to be involved in the creating, not the cross-referencing. 

    I still get a thrill from bullet-pointed lists and clear, concise writing. Now I get to use that power for good, by helping companies communicate with their customers clearly and effectively.

    Hi, I'm Michael, senior web developer here at Swaytech.

    I like to keep things nerdy, and slightly awkward, and like a little bit of caffiene in the morning to get things started. 

    Before switching over to development, I spent a few years as a designer and 3D animator and I now enjoy matching good design with good code.

    Hi, in a nutshell I'm here to make things look and feel pretty.

    I create and design in both print and web. I enjoy working in collaboration and spending time conceptualising ideas for way too long. I have a passion for sarcasm and I love working in PowerPoint and Word.

    I'm also the guy that answers the phone because I'm just too nice to say no.

    I have a Bachelor of Visual Arts from the University of Auckland and a Certificate in Digital Media from Media Design School.

    Rebecca Dias

    Web / Graphic Designer

    I studied Graphic Design and Digital Media at Media Design School, which means I do both print and web. I love to make things pretty, to simplify complexity, illustrate and solve problems as well as anything creative.

    Currently, I’m doing a BA in English and History at Massey University. I have come to Swaytech from Imarda where I’ve worked for over a year as their in-house web and print designer.

    I am Brazilian, so I am very passionate (crazy) about everything I do. I love things to be colourful, have fun with the simple things in life and laugh. My ideal world would be like a constant musical where people sing instead of talk, dance instead of walk and there is fireworks, cake, endless supplies of shoes, elephants and puppies.
