Dr Stuart Baulk (Director)
BSc (Hons), BDes, PhD, DipBus, DipM
Stuart started Sleeping Bear in 2012 as a way to help small businesses and non-profit organisations to grow their presence. Since then he has worked with clients in a number of industries to develop print, digital and web designs.
Sleeping Bear was always an adventure in his own learning – a little like a never-ending internship.
Having studied psychology after finishing high school, Stuart worked as a consultant, researcher and lecturer for a number of years, completing a PhD in applied psychology and working with various industry groups in research and consulting.
But there was always something missing. Always being the go-to person for both technical and creative elements of work – he regularly designed presentations and websites. Eventually the direction shifted and Sleeping Bear was born.
Stuart’s Bachelors degree in Communication Design, BSc (Honours) and PhD in Psychology, and diplomas in Marketing and Business, together with extensive experience in communicating complex information to a wide audience give him the skills to help your business become visible, competitive and successful.
