Meet Our Team

We know what it takes to make momentum in business because we’re a collective of entrepreneurs running successful side hustles. At Azul, we show up wiser with these learnings. Combining creativity and craft, we help your brand be seen and heard amongst all the noise.

Andrew De Angelis

Founder

With over 12 years worth of experience in the spaces of digital marketing and website design, Andy is accomplished but humble as the Director of Azul Digital. He has worked for many high profile clients including Qantas, La Porchetta, Centre4Health and MGMC Pharma Group. His exceptional ability to combine creativity in business applications with technology saw Andy steer the ship as Head of Creative for Parsl; an innovator in supply chain track and trace technology.

With a superpower of requiring little sleep, Andy enjoys a wide palette of side hustles that allow him to harness his entrepreneurial streak beyond office hours through Cigar Sales Australia and The Cigar Guy. An avid content creator across media, Andy also produces the Endless Hustle Podcast and Cigar Advice News Blog – Andy is a man who knows his cigars. For Andy, design is thinking made visual and he is all about visual communication that is universal and intuitive.

Here he creatively engineers combinations and synthesises beats that resonate with all crowds and settings. Nico is also the Director of Loom Festival, a new peak time techno concept shaking up the Berlin scene. His love of fine design and driving have joined forces in his new obsession with Mustangs – of which he is a proud parent.

Noor Gabrial

Designer

Noor is a man of the world having lived in New Zealand, the States, Qatar and finally calls Melbourne home. Drawing upon this wealth of global mobility, Noor joined the team with a handful of self-earned experiences and an eagerness to learn. Studying a Bachelor of Business majoring in Marketing and Management at Monash University, Noor gravitated towards creative and design streams.

In this hybrid space, Noor is able to unify his passion for good aesthetics and clean design with his witty wordplay. He has quickly picked up the tools of the trade and applied clever ideas to provide clients with fun, relevant and relatable content. Outside of work, Noor splits his time between his podcast, community work and playing soccer.

Pluto

Chief of Fun

Like his name suggests, Pluto is pretty out-of -this-world cool! He loves to keep us all on our paws.

Pluto doesn’t take life too seriously, and knows full well the influential extent of his puppy eyes. When he isn’t ideating initiatives to foster studio culture and festivity, he loves being a landscape architect and unearthing the garden beds and parklands around the City of Port Phillip.

Being the only 4 legged member of the team, he’s all about being double the fun.
