The skill set at Juuce spans across a number of mediums, giving us the ability to cover a broad range of project types. While everyone at Juuce is multitasking, each person is assigned a niche to develop their expertise in. To own a niche at Juuce means you are the ‘goto guy’ or girl at crunch time and are expected to know your area back-to-front and stay on top of the latest developments in the industry. Juuce staff are required to stay on top of related blogs, magazines and attend relevant seminars to keep sharp. Being such a fast-paced industry (like most these days), we value hunger to learn, and market awareness as much as we do existing skills. Please browse through the following profiles that make up our creative and development team.
