Sometimes the best things come in highly creative, un-caffeinated, fried chicken loving packages and in our case that package is Josie.
Our vivacious marketing guru is a generalist (she wears lots of hats) while being our go-to consultant for large scale campaign development/management and copywriting gigs. A true hustler when it comes to making her clients stand out from the crowd, if you’re after the next big idea she’s your girl.
In the words of former Chief Marketing Officer of National Australia Bank (NAB) Sandra De Castro:
“A particular shout out to the super talented Josie Murray and her amazing hustle and creativity – sometimes I think she can get anyone to do anything just to make the ads better!”
Passionate about the art and value of storytelling Josie loves assisting both small and large businesses to communicate who they are and why they exist in a way that is truly authentic. There's never a need for any fake sales schmick when you have a memorable story behind you as far as she's concerned.
When she isn’t trying to slip a dad joke into website copy, blogs, EDM’s or social channels in her spare time she loves getting down to the beach on the East Coast of Tasmania, playing golf with her dad or brother and strolling through the Harvest Market #wholesome.
Smiling people, salty sea air, lemons, European getaways - especially to Positano! Dancing with my boyfriend in the kitchen, fried chicken and chips with gravy, and kickboxing to burn off the former.

@zotheysay for the wit and @rosiehw for the wardrobe goals.
What inspires you?
The go-getters and true leaders. If I say Beck or Rob do I get brownie points?
Shake Your Groove Thing by Peaches & Herb, or Danger! High Voltage by Electric Six.
If you could write your own job title that best describes what you do at Kingthing, what would it be?
My job is about getting people interested in your company's product or service. To show your customer that you can provide them with value and to make sure that they are aware of your existence!
Rob won't stop whistling in the office, how do you distract him?
Hand draw him a certificate of achievement, remind him that the tea he made four hours ago is still brewing in the kitchen or compliment him on a spreadsheet he made.
What's your coffee/hot drink order?
Surprisingly I'm not a coffee drinker, or a hot drink one at that! Give me a soda water with lots of lemon (and some strawberries) and I'm a happy lady.
Who would you invite to a dinner party?
Jennifer Hawkins (it's the former pageant girl in me), Joe Rogan (he’s hilarious and UFC is always better with him as a commentator), Jeff Bezos (I think anyone who has been to space and founded a multi-billion dollar company would be worth chatting too). Looks like I'm biased to J names! Haha.
If you could be a world champion in any sport, what would it be?
Can I say eating french fries? If I have to say a real sport it would be golf as Dad always wanted me to be an LPGA pro. Sorry dad.
What would be your ultimate three course meal?
My nanna's spring rolls and dumplings with soy sauce. Homemade fried chicken (or kievs) and veggies. And a lemon tart from Delicious Little Things to wrap things up!
