Stefan Machno

Email Designer & Developer

Stefan is part of our Creative Development team and has a wealth of experience in graphic design under his belt.

Originally from Germany, Stefan cut his teeth working in print and newspapers as a designer before heading to Elbenwald, an e-commerce business for merchandise products including the likes of Star Wars and Lord of the Rings.

He was there for five years before the lure of Cornwall and his love of surfing brought him to the UK.

“For most Germans, when they think of the UK, the first things that spring to mind are London, rain and the Queen,” he says. “That’s why when I first read about Cornwall I wanted to see it for myself. I came over for a holiday and Cornwall left me speechless. I knew I had take a chance and move over here.

“I’m at a stage in my career where I want to improve and better myself – and Jarrang is the perfect place to do this with the team in place and the calibre of work produced here. You work within a limited framework when designing for email which forces you to think creatively and find innovative solutions. This really excites me and I’m looking forward to pushing my email design to the next level.”

As well as surfing, Stefan is a keen gamer and basketball player and has also spent time doing voluntary work for Surfers Against Sewage and St Francis Dogs Home.
