Studio Equator



Meet our staff...


creative director
Since his days as a graffiti artist Carlos has always been interested in drawing and design.  After one year of studying primary school teaching, he moved to New York to look into studying design there, but returned after a year to complete Melbourne's prestigious Brighton Bay Art, Design & Photography Program.  He then went on to complete a degree in Graphic Design at Swinburne University.

Carlos has worked in several different jobs in many industries, which has given him a deep understanding of various types of businesses.  After university Carlos spent 3 years running a firm in partnership with a friend.
In 2002 he started studio equator so he could have the creative freedom to work in different disciplines and do something meaningful and personally rewarding.

Carlos moved here from El Salvador as a child.  He loves live music and playing with his son Levi, and always brightens the studio with his infectious laugh. Carlos Flores


Studio Manager

Jacinta grew up on a farm in North East Victoria, but now works as our Office Manager.  
After studying arts and information management & systems she worked in finance and administration before spending 3 years in Thailand volunteering in events management, fundraising and several philanthropic ventures including teaching disabled children to horse ride, working with orphans and providing food and clothing to the poor.

Jacinta returned to Australia in May 2009 and has been with Studio Equator since then.
She loves socialising, riding her bike to work and life in general.
She also loves it when clients pay on time.

Interior architect
Benjamin is our very own Frenchman.  He grew up and studied in France where he completed a diploma of art & design, majoring in product and interior design.  After graduating in 2006, he worked as a product designer, designing a large variety of products ranging from bottles to tombstones.

In 2007 Benjamin moved to Australia where he worked for a large event company designing exhibition stands before accepting his current position at studio equator in August 2008.  His favourite part of work at equator is the opportunity to develop new concepts.

Ben loves like a Frenchman, but eats like an Italian and drinks like an Aussie.  He is a keen squash and badminton player, and loves cheese and pasta.  Just as many women have a separate stomach for deserts, Ben has a separate stomach for cheesy pasta! Benjamin Fretard


PHP Developer

Dubbo was born in ShanXi province in China and lived there until 2002 when he moved to JiangSu province to attend China University of Mining & Technology (CUMT) where he studied Computer Science & Technology. The course involved a student exchange program with two years study in JiangSu, and a final two years at Swinburne University in Melbourne.  After graduating from this course, Dubbo then also completed a Masters in I.T.

In 2008 Dubbo returned to China and worked in Shanghai programming and developing PHP web games, while his high school sweetheart completed her Masters degree in China. They were married in 2009, and in 2010 both moved to Australia, where Dubbo started work at studio equator as a PHP developer.

Dubbo loves the creativity programming allows him. He also likes database design and getting creative with flash animation.
