Chau Ly

Creative Director

My name is Chau and my role at SEO Premier is Creative Director which means my days generally includes pushing pixels in front of a monitor and making sketches that may or may not resemble anything. When I’m not doing that, I’d talking with our amazing team of designers and developers to formulate a vision for our clients.

What’s your morning ritual to set you up for a productive day?

Nothing gets me out of bed faster than a screaming hungry 8-month old human being. After he’s happy, I reward myself with a perfectly brewed pot of green tea (loose leaf at 75 degrees) and a chilly tomato chutney bacon & egg roll with a drop of maple syrup.

Your favourite thing about your job is…

Being in the process of creation – transforming the intangible into the tangible. There aren’t many things that give me more satisfaction than that.

Where do you want to be in five years?

Still jamming away with my Mac and helping our team in becoming one of Australia’s and UK’s top creative digital agency. On a personal level, I’ll be pushing my face into a bowl of warm minestrone soup on the base camp of Mt Everest.

What’s your favourite way to unwind after a killer week at work?

Chilling in front of the TV and be in the company of my 3 favourite people in the world – my wife, my boy and a white furry dog called Happi.

How did you get to where you are now at SEO Premier?

I met an English fella in an Irish pub in the summer of 2014. He needed someone that could make things look good on a computer. I needed someone that could make things show up on a search engine. The rest is history.

If you could have any other job what would it be?

Traveling the world and driving the fastest cars in the world, preferably in red.
