Liina Puusepp

Marketing and Design Assistant

Liina is passionate about breaking the traditions in our industry and blurring the lines between creativity and marketing. Having a professional background in Advertising and Graphic Design, she has a wealth of knowledge from international creative agencies. 

Having moved to Australia from her native Estonia, Liina has worked on branding and advertising campaigns with some of the biggest brands in Europe. Liina has travelled to over 36 countries and has experienced a wealth of culture. 

When she eventually started working on the client-facing side of marketing, she truly fell in love with the industry. Liina has driven several digital and social media campaigns for a variety of businesses in various industries.

Over the years she has combined her skills and experience and truly mastered her passion. She is the 2-for-1 kind of package you need for all sorts of marketing projects.

Adam Schwarz

Graduate Designer

Adam is fresh out of University with a degree in IT and Digital Media. This makes him a Jack-of-all-Trades for things like graphic design, web design, web development and animation.

Adam is a self-professed geek through and through. He spends his spare time creating entire worlds for Dungeons and Dragons and brings that same level of creativity and detail to his work for our clients.

Adam completed his internship at Refuel Creative, working on the design and branding for Digital Adelaide, before joining the team full time.

Jasmine Kurda

Project Manager

You won’t meet a more organised individual than our project manager. As an avid lover of checklists and calendars, you bet she keeps us all in check and makes sure we’re keeping on top of our work. She wasn’t always this much of a stickler for schedules though. 

Coming from a creative background with a degree in Visual Arts and Graphic Design with a postgrad in Animation, who would have thought Jasmine would be dealing with budgets and timelines. Her previous roles involved working for national brands in eCommerce, digital design and marketing, making her the perfect fit for our team. 

But, there’s more to Jasmine than just industry know-how and listmaking. Not only is she a baking enthusiast, dog mum and gaming nerd, she also does contortion and aerial performances! Clearly, we only hire multitalented people over here.

Melissa Banks

Administration Assistant

Melissa is the saviour we all needed to keep our work lives in check! Her provision of baked goods and the ability to keep us all in check has afforded her the unofficial title of “Office Mum.”

However, her real title is Admin Assistant (and an awesome one at that). Being thrust into the world of Marketing jargon and advanced tech is not easy, but Melissa dove in headfirst. She makes sure that all the information that our clients send, call in and email to us is communicated to the right team members.

Her extensive background knowledge in Government positions means she is extremely well regimented and just generally great at her job. Melissa has definitely made her mark at Refuel and works hard to implement policies and procedures that make our team more efficient.
