About Emote

An enthusiastic team delivering beautiful results.

Our team is the driving force of Emote. We’re a close-knit bunch of talented individuals with a strong passion for our specialties and a dedication to delivering exceptional results. Each of us brings our unique skill set and love for what we do. Because ultimately, our difference lies in how much we care.

To emote is to express. Everything we do elicits a profound response from our clients. Excitement. Joy. Passion. Wonder. Pride. Satisfaction.

The results aren’t just numerical. They’re emotional. It’s these responses that make our clients remember us and choose to work with us again and again.

Who is Emote?

Tanya Di Giacomo General Manager Bio

Tanya is the showrunner and the shot caller — you can call her T but never Tan. She wears many hats coordinating the team, thinking big for the business and stealing your muesli bar. The resident cheeseboard maker and wine recommender, you can go to T for advice on both your weekend plans and your career aspirations. Quote The Office or 90s rap lyrics if you want to really impress her.

Boyd Roberts Managing Director Bio

Always keen to get the ball rolling, his favourite phrase is “ASAP”. When he’s not running the biz, he’s keeping fit, spending time with his kids or escaping for a holiday at the beach. Boyd’s a high energy dynamo who loves celebrating the team’s wins and getting behind good ideas.


Our Three Golden Rules

Make Real Connections

This is our bread and butter. Fostering real connection is what keeps us charging forward, so we always prioritise your relationships. Because at the end of the day, it’s people that matter most.

Confidence is Everything

By exuding confidence in what we do, we instil confidence in others. Think confident, not cocky. No one wants to partner with wishy-washy mumblers, they want to partner with people who have the courage to be bold. That’s us.

Always Work Smarter

It’s about forward-thinking. Work smarter, not harder. We don’t cut corners — unless it’s the better solution. We always consider the “why” behind everything we do. Because that’s how you be the best in the game.

Our History

From our humble beginnings in Box Hill, we were born and branded as Corporate Image. Ahead of our time, the business was positioned as a design and marketing offering in the pre-digital era.

With the advent of the internet, we built our first website (our own) at the end of 2001 and we embarked on our 20-year journey to date into digital.

Our move from one shared desk to a small loft above a clothing store in Balwyn was dubbed ‘The Taj Mahal’ (though it certainly was nothing like that). In our minds, it was just as grand and we employed our first two team members.

Working with well-known brands such as Sherrin, Pfizer and Top Flite we began forging growth and continued to add to our team.

Back then in our Balwyn office, just having a phone that could be transferred across rooms and a desk that was converted from a door holding two machines was major progress. We embarked on various rebrands, began advertising on search engines as they emerged and grew our awareness and revenue.

We bought our first portable Apple screen to use in meetings to impress clients and display our wares. Carrying it in a steel case from meeting to meeting would have been a sight to see.

Whilst branding and design was at our core, the development of the internet and requirement for website solutions and digital marketing grew exponentially.

Corporate Image was rebranded to Emote (to sit alongside our branding agency, Bellman) as part of our evolution to be relevant, stay ahead of the trend and to have a dedicated and focussed brand to service all things digital.

Working with well-known brands such as Carlton Draught, Orica and United Energy kept us very busy during these years.

Our rebrand and marketing changes aligned with our move to the Hawthorn office which was in need of its own renovation to align with our grand plans. With careful planning and a lot of sweat and effort, our space was converted from top to bottom to where we reside and operate today.

This was a period of significant change and excitement for the business and Emote began to make its mark as an industry leader.

Our team grew significantly as we added to specialist roles such as social advertising, platform advertising, marketing analytics and specialist developer skill sets.

Working with iconic brands such as Brown Brothers, Sutton, Bakers Delight and Suzuki became part of our norm as our reputation for delivering beautiful results spread.

During COVID, we spent a huge amount of energy sharpening our tools and working on our own game to position ourselves perfectly for post-pandemic.

Over the last 20 years, we’ve seen and done pretty much everything you can experience across the branding and digital space.

We’ve been there from the beginning, weathering the GFC, beating COVID and always maintaining our growth mindset to create and manage brands beautifully through digital for our clients.
