Kristi is print journalist by trade and has used that to springboard into other forms of writing.
She moved into corporate communications and government relations in 2000, learning the craft while working at two of Melbourne’s leading agencies.
After a detour into the world of AFL, she started her own communications business with a client list including state government departments, councils and not-for-profits, along with organisations from a wide range of industries including environment, technology and construction.
She specialises in developing and implementing corporate communications strategies, tools and resources, and copywriting for various mediums.
Anthony (‘Woody’) has written, produced and directed a number of short films, has worked as a production manager on documentaries and feature length movies, and produced and directed many corporate videos.
He has considerable experience as a production and location manager in Australian television, working for icons like Fremantle Media, Channel 7 and the ABC.
His name has featured on the production credits of some of Australia’s most loved TV shows like Wentworth, Time of our Lives, Winners and Losers, Nowhere Boys and Mr and Mrs Murder.
Woody is currently focusing on writing for, producing and directing videos for corporate clients and community groups.
The story of Puffafish is a little like the Brady Brunch with a company twist and two less children.
One day in 2010, Journalist/Communications Consultant Kristi High met TV/Film guy Anthony (Woody) Woodcock and decided to join forces.
Kristi High Consulting merged into Puffafish a few months later to offer a one-stop-shop all communications/copywriting/film and TV work.
Then what happened?
It worked so well they got married, kept up with the comms and film needs of existing and new clients, started a magazine, added a girl to the ‘High-Cock’ family, bought a bookshop in the country, and became Puffafish Group to keep it altogether!
Where we work
Puffafish is a Perth-Townsville-Seymour-Melbourne blend and therefore is not particularly territorial or parochial.
The tree-change to Victoria’s picturesque Macedon Ranges
is brilliant but Melbourne is (insert cliché) the best city
in the world! Kristi loves a trip to her native ‘wild West’
and her client in the NT, they both love everything NSW, SA
and QLD offers, Canberra has the juicy stuff, and who doesn’t love Tassie?
What we like
Kristi’s passionate about preventing violence against women and anti-bullying. She loves clients with issues to solve, and really likes planes, trains, automobiles and things made from hard stuff like steel and concrete.
Woody was a chemist who made a career shift into film and television! He runs a ‘men-only’ book club at his bookshop and is totally sport-obsessed - still plays cricket, has joined the Masters footy club and helps out at MILO and Auskick.
When things get a little hairy on the work-front, which they do from time-to-time, we always remain hands-on, and bring in extra reinforcements by way of writers and film dudes to meet deadlines! ALWAYS!
We have two brilliant graphic designers – Jason and Kathryn (first names only - their decision) – who prefer to remain behind the screens.
Their work speaks for themselves, please check out Our work.
