We’re Minty Hunter and Bek Farr, and we do websites, design, boardgames, print work, code and animation.
We’ve been in the whole multimedia caper since 1993, largely with a focus on educational and artistic projects for clients like the Department of Education, Adobe, Microsoft, Encyclopaedia Britannica, Curriculum Corporation and the Australian National Gallery. Working out of Melbourne, Nectarine Oz was our baby for 13 years. With a staff of five employees, we won a swag of awards for creative work underpinned by our unique sense of design, innovation and humour.
Nine years ago we moved our young family to Aotearoa New Zealand to enjoy a change of pace. We eased up on the scope of our work to focus on smaller sites, often for local businesses and organisations (as you can see in the Website Portfolio).
We also became involved in boardgames when a friend brought us a pencil-sketched game asking for help to polish it to attract a publisher. That game became “The Amazing Moa Hunt”, a New Zealand bestseller: you can find it in Whitcoulls and Paper Plus and many other stores. Since then we’ve worked on over 14 games in various capacities, covered in our Boardgame Portfolio.
Suffice to say, if you’ve got an intriguing project that needs our combination of code, design and wit, get in touch!
