Kim Fraser and Steve McCabe are the founding partners of Claude & Co. Between them, they've spent over thirty years in the business. They've worked together in Auckland, Sydney, Beijing, and now Dunedin.


Steve's creative career started in London before having stints in Sydney, Dubai, Lagos and Beijing, as well as 10 years in Auckland.

He’s worked across most client sectors: Automotive, FMCG,  Financial Services, Telecommunications, Alcoholic Drinks, Numerous retail accounts, Fashion, Technology, Public Service, Travel, Media, Education, even the Olympics. And probably any others you can think of.

On his travels, he's picked up a number of creative and effectiveness awards, including Gold and Silver at the prestigious Cannes Lions international festival. 

Steve’s finally coming to terms with the fact that he (probably) won’t now make it as a professional footballer.
