Logan Hodgson joins Octave as Client Director

September 21, 2022

Logan Hodgson joined the Octave whānau this month as Client Director. Following six years as Head of Client Service at Springload, he’s going to help us drive business growth, strategic initiatives and client partnerships. Logan chats to us about his background, why he’s excited to work at Octave and what makes him tick.

Kia ora! For a bit of background, I grew up in the far north, enjoying the Kiwi life of beaches, fishing, rugby and working on my Dad's building projects. I chose to study design at Massey in Wellington and immediately fell in love with the city, the coffee and the mountain bike trails.

I have worked in Wellington agencies or digital companies for the last 18 years, apart from spending time doing volunteer work in Cambodia. I now have 3 small children, who keep me entertained and build patience!

What’s your favourite piece of work you’ve been involved in?

I won’t name one project, but I enjoy working on projects with a focus on driving positive outcomes for people. 

Whether it’s helping non-profits get funding, sustainability startups launch, supporting health outcomes such as assisting ACC to improve recovery times, or gamblers overcoming addiction. 

The best projects are where you have open, trusting relationships with clients, and the team chemistry to solve difficult challenges.

I feel the best results come out of those challenging periods, where ideas are enhanced and genuine partnerships grow.

Why Octave?

I'm excited about Octave’s mission to become NZ’s most interesting agency by doing truly different, important work. They certainly have some of the most talented and interesting people I’ve met.

I’m interested in how businesses can harness and integrate the power of data, research and actionable creative ideas to build transformational digital experiences and systems.

I love the craft of design and the challenge of accessibility and sustainability within digital. It's about understanding the longer-term impacts of the digital solutions we create, ensuring they genuinely support people.

I'm very much looking forward to the season ahead.
