Awards and Achievements

  • Adobe + Quicksilver Facebook 'Design Our Line' Runner-Up

    In 2012, I entered a design competition run through Facebook by Adobe + Quicksilver called 'Design Our Line'. The brief was to make a Quicksilver T-shirt using Adobe products then upload the template onto the dedicated Facebook page for judging. After about three seconds, I came up with the idea of 'Board', a neat double entendre playing on the typical surf lifestyle. I titled my T-shirt 'When I'm not surfing I'm...' and then watched it ride a wave of criticism amidst predictable sunsets, bold colours and faded frangipanis. As a creative, first thoughts don't always win, but in this case they were good enough to take out second place. Not bad for five letters, a bit of punctuation and black on white. Oh, and a pretty obvious pun.

About Marti

*** THIS SITE IS FOR MY ARCHIVED WORK ***
FOR MY CURRENT PORTFOLIO PLEASE VISIT WWW.MARTINGREGURIC.COM

Marti Greguric is an award-winning integrated creative strategist and digital copywriter who specialises in data-driven, tech-powered and effective CX marketing solutions.

Based in his hometown of Sydney Australia, Marti is a problem solver sans frontières.

Welcome to his creative portfolio.

A born creative, Marti combines 15 years of advertising and leadership experience with a pragmatic approach to implementing original, simple, lateral and relevant marketing solutions.

Schooled in creative writing and strategic ideation, Marti’s nous for innovative campaigns is matched by an innate ability to fly solo or thrive in a team to solve real business problems.

Somewhat of a modern-day rarity, Marti has ironically been hailed as “a copywriter who can actually write” – whilst also being lauded for his 360 skillset which broaches analogue to digital, FMCG to automotive, strategy to branding, healthcare to finance, and social to experiential.

At 193cm and tipping the scales at 115kg (clothed), Marti is a 'heavyweight' creative writer, content producer and conceptual dynamo in all senses of the word, possessing a deft touch both on an Apple keyboard and with Sharpie in hand.

With First Class Honours in English from The University of Sydney, Marti passed up a PhD offer in favour of a lesser-known tertiary pursuit called AWARD School, where he discovered his love of writing might actually be profitable.

He was right, more or less.

When not shooting threes with a scrunched-up piece of A4 you can find Marti strumming the tamburica (long-necked lute).

As well as the NBA, Marti also enjoys bubble tea, Will Ferrell, getting but not staying fit, Command-Z, ping pong, emoji-only texts, the Lo-Fi Instagram filter, Seinfeld...and Vitamin D.
