Ryan Carter

Ryan Carter

Art Director

Raised in Timaru and now raising his own family here, Ryan rejoins the Plato team excited about bringing something a bit different to his hometown. Ryan’s a design veteran with over a decade of varied industry experience gathered over a career path that’s been guided by luck and life. The journey’s armed him with a wide range of real-life design skills, perspectives and social skills to deal with the ebb and flow of design agency life whilst juggling a family and all the chaos that entails! Even though he’s the least famous Carter in the family, Ryan’s still super ambitious and loves the challenge of creating something completely new from nothing more than a simple conversation or a few words on a page and taking clients on a journey of ideas and clever creative.

Eamon Haggart

Eamon Haggart


Eamon’s been a qualified graphic designer for over 15 years and after a spot of travel (as us Kiwis do) settled into the creative scene in Timaru and gaining experience with two established local businesses. Local knowledge and an interest in online as well as offline design makes Eamon a real asset to our team in Timaru. He’s earned a solid reputation around town for a reason, having been part of the design/brand/web setup for a lot of successful local businesses and events. Eamon loves helping translate passionate business owners’ visions into creative and brands that look incredible and gets results. And when he’s not creating cool stuff for work, he’s creating at home, reliving his youth with the kids and their Lego.

We’re business led and proud of it

Everything starts with a conversation about your business and your customers because, in our experience, smarter business outcomes are best achieved by collaborating and taking the time to truly understand your business and objectives. Then we form around you a team of great people with the right skill sets to execute a well thought out game plan.

Partnership or project — you choose. Some clients need a long-term agency partner for ongoing and regular work, whereas others only need us for a one-off project. We have the resources, tools, skills and experience to offer total flexibility in the ways we work together.
