August 1, 2018

Christie Morgan is the multi-talented founder of Pitch Studios, a future-forward creative studio specialising in visual experiences. Merging art, tech and design, Pitch Studios has created authentic brand experiences for clients including Nike, Tate, TED and Warner Music - just to name a few. Launching a year and a half ago, Pitch evolved from an iconic print and digital publication to one of the most innovative creative studios today. We chatted with Christie on the best advice she’s ever received, her heroes and how to break into the creative industries here.

Hey Christie, what are some of your career highlights?

Hello! Definitely kicking off a relationship with our friends at Nike Australia. They are incredibly open-minded and really let us take the Nike brand and produce an inspiring interactive experience. Super collaborative, which is exactly what we look for when working with brands.

What brands or artists would you love to collaborate with?

Ooooh so many brands and artists! It’s really hard to name a few. I personally love make-up artists who are really pushing the boundaries in that space such as Isamaya Ffrench, Lucy Garland (we’re working on a fun project actually) and Bea Sweet. I’m really obsessed with the beauty space so brands like WAH Nails or Milk Makeup would be incredible to collaborate with too. Anyone innovative is key!

Who are some of your heroes?

Huge question. I’ve always been a die-hard fan of Grace Coddington.

What advice would you give to younger people looking to break into the creative industries?

It’s ok to go out on your own and start something new. But understand that it doesn’t happen overnight and it requires a huge level of self-motivation and discipline. It’s a lot of hard work but also super rewarding!

What’s been the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?

Be comfortable with being uncomfortable. It’s something you have to learn but once you do, everything falls into place.

What song or album have you got on repeat?

ANYTHING by Charli XCX tbh. Also obsessed with Kkingdomm who’s possibly my favourite producer/artist ever.

What item would you buy if money was no object?

Damn, that list would be long. I can’t chose! There’s too much.

What's your most prized possession?  

Definitely my Electric Objects screen. You can’t even buy them anymore :(

Who should we check out on Instagram?

Again, there’s so many but if I HAD to choose please check out Alpha Ines (3D make-up artist) and Sharmadean Reid (the OG girlboss and founder of Beauty Stack).

What’s next for Pitch Studios?

We’re in the works on a collaboration with beauty brand Fluff and a bunch of other things but you’ll have to wait and see!
