About me


Hi, I'm Dan Phillips, I head up Aftermath. I've got 12+ years advertising and digital marketing experience and have been fortunate enough to develop digital strategy and ideas for some of NZ's favourite companies/brands including Lion, 2degrees, Skinny, Frucor, Hallenstein's, NZI, GJ Gardner, NZ Rugby and more. 

I started my career at Saatchi & Saatchi, but for the past 7 years led client service, strategy and innovation in helping grow Young & Shand from a team of three to NZ's largest independently owned digital agency.

I'm a weird mix of creative, strategic and analytical. I'm passionate about ideas, and am very skilled in making digital marketing tools work in ways that truly deliver results.


I get excited about getting shit done: I'm more interested in action and outputs than theory and jargon. If you work with me, expect well considered practical advice that you can apply quickly.
