James Armstrong and Shamus Hoare head up the creative team at Gozer Studio; a motion graphics and design practice based in Melbourne.

James is a current member of the Australian Graphic Design Association and his films have screened in festivals around the world. With a penchant for narrative, unusual sense of humour and poetic design sensibility, James strives to create unique, moving and aesthetically compelling stories.

Shamus, a trained Industrial Designer, thrives on challenging communication projects, working in any format required. As at home with a pencil or computer as he is with a hammer or some plasticine, Shamus is not wedded to any particular medium or method, looking for what could be possible in any given situation to ensure each project reaches its potential.

For ten years they have worked together across a broad range of projects, within a variety of mediums, to create engaging media pieces. With a love of stories, a passion for communication, and a focus on working with community, James and Shamus enjoy creativity as a business pursuit …or is that business as a creative pursuit?
