About us

MedalTally was created by Anneke & Derek Zilich, during the Sydney Olympics in 2000 – hence the name…

“Our name is still so relevant today, because we are here to help you strive and obtain your highest goals; we want you to win “Gold” every day with your product or service. The creative brain and design talent is Anneke, born and educated in the Netherlands, she has worked for the top design companies and global brands in the Netherlands, UK, South Africa and Australia. An artist in her own right, Anneke started her creative career at The Royal Art Academy in The Netherlands. Today she still paints when she finds the time.  Exploring the world… Anneke moved to the UK where she worked for Nucleus Design at major packaging projects (Marks & Spencer and Tesco) and back to the Netherlands where theatre projects, Oilily and Mars International packaging kept her busy until she left to go to South Africa working with KSDP Pentagraph for several years before taking up residence in Sydney Australia more than 25 years ago. In Sydney she helped set up the Sydney branch of the KSDP group and then moved to Morton Design, Hulsbosch, Appetite and Jam & Co Design which she still heads up the Design department. On her journey, Anneke has worked with global products, clients from a whole range of industries and now uses this expertise to help businesses where her heart is. Anneke loves to specialise in creative brand and design of Australian Artisan products and services from start-ups to more established businesses that need a refresh or a new creative lift to get to the next level.

In order to engage your consumers we need to learn all about what they want. The fact is, good design solutions require in depth understanding about the product and the target consumer. Whether you need a one off banner, a full rebrand or a simple label update it is best we get all the details. For this reason a good old conversation is important. We won’t waste your time but we will need to discuss the project, your business direction and desired outcome.
