Who We Are

Meet the team

WELL, IT JUST SO HAPPENS THAT WE’RE VERY FRIENDLY AND QUITE HAPPY TO TELL YOU ALL ABOUT US.

We’re a little fish in a big pond, but that doesn’t mean we can’t swim in the deep end with the piranhas. In fact, here’s our promise – fast moving, small fees, BIG ideas, huge creativity, great results, no biting. We’re pretty sure it’s the no biting thing that has seen our working relationships prosper and in the process your business. But, that could also have something to do with our award-winning creative.

There are no shoulder pads here – you won’t get tangled up in an impenetrable wall of suits, you’ll get to talk directly with our creatives. But just as a kindergarten isn’t run without teachers, neither is Beans & Rice without a bit of management. We’ve got just the right mix to keep it fresh and accessible but also to keep it moving.

Charles Li

DESIGNER

Apparently no relation to Jet Li, but Charles can still bust out some pretty mean moves and kick butt with his mad design skills. We call him Chuck. Chuck has a number of years experience under his belt and can make anything look pretty darn amazing. Give him a brief and a deadline and he’ll give you a piece of art that talks to you.
