Alister Coyne


Director of Design at AskNicely | Deaf since birth | Founder - 25 Maps

New Zealand

Alister started his career doing experimental projects for Chupa Chups, Toyota and Adidas at Melbourne based startup Sputnik Agency. A broken heart led him to Edinburgh where he worked in design, film and theatre before heading down to London to work on websites and campaigns for audiences of up to 80 million people in multiple languages. He may be responsible for the downfall of Yahoo! by launching the biggest online advertising campaign ever, creating full page takeovers and interactive banners that were simply the most annoying thing ever made.
Alister moved into product design after a failed attempt to build a marketing automation platform for Affinity ID. He set up a brand new team of designers at Trade Me in Auckland producing work for Property, Motors, Jobs and Ads. He loves the vision that Auror strives for and solving real world problems in a transparent, collaborative fashion. He is also severely deaf, and relies on hearing aids and lip reading to get through the day.
