Mete is an award-winning designer with an illustration background. He set off for a five-year stint in New York in 2013, first as an Art Director at Saatchi & Saatchi and then as a freelance artist. At Saatchi, He made ads for big clients like Cheerios and Chase Bank, earning recognition from CLIO, Cannes Lions, The Webby Awards, and even a spot in MoMA’s permanent video collection.
As a freelancer in New York, he focussed on murals, hand lettering and illustrations for clients like Sweetgreen, Frank Body, Shinola and Birchbox. He returned to Melbourne after fulfilling his New York dream to start his studio, Either Either, a collaborative craft-based agency with clients such as ME Bank, MYOB and the University of Melbourne. He then became Creative Director of 50 Crates, an insight-driven branding agency. He helped clients find their own truths behind what they do and develop a company belief they can share with the world through all their internal and external communications.
Mete has used humor to change American policy for gay blood donors for GLAAD (the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation), reassured young people they’re not alone through the social-media comedy series ‘Living With COVID’ for the University of Melbourne, and raised money for the Indigenous Literacy Foundation with his (anti)viral ‘I’ve done all of Brighton’ face mask during the pandemic. Now Mete finds himself as Art Director at Monster & Bear, bringing his love, talent and humor to take the funny stuff seriously, and the serious stuff funnily, all to make a positive change with every project he touches.
