Ngaio is an illustrator, multidisciplinary designer, and curator who enjoys doing a lot of things at the same time. She works with clients like Ban.do, Thames & Hudson, Redbull, Young Henrys, and Sibella Court from her independent studio. While she's not the overlord at Make Nice, she also consults for companies, and teaches illustration and design at the University of Technology Sydney. In her spare time, Ngaio is a fan of ice-cream (of all kinds), Law & Order (of all kinds) and listening to people trying to pronounce her name (it's nigh-oh).

Alexandra joined the team at Make Nice after being converted to their powerful ways at the inaugural conference. As the co-founder of Youth Food Movement she spends the bulk of her day crafting thoughtful projects around food (aka, bringing farmers into a city pub to share their story) and generally being a boss. She gets a kick out of driving fast in her Porsche 944 and writing heartfelt cards to friends and family.

Want to Make Nice with us?

The women we know are experienced, professional and talented as hell.

They are nice. They are interested in learning from each other’s mistakes and moving forward together. They like to share work, share ideas, offer resources and hot tips. They know how to internet. They do not tolerate fools or bad manners. They make amazing things.

Parity for women in the creative industries is going to take a swathe of people from business, government and the community working together. Make Nice is about bringing these people and companies together. 

We're looking for a small group of sponsors who want to elevate and celebrate women. 

If you see what we see and want to grow it with us, email us now.

If you are Gloria Steinem or Solange Knowles, we are at your service.

Holler at Alexandra at partnerships@make-nice.com.au for our sponsorship deck.
