Heath Killen is an art director, project manager, and educator, now working as Creative Lead for Commonwealth Bank.

Heath specialises in maximising the creative potential of brands, campaigns, products, and services. He achieves this through design thinking, agile methodology, deep research, evidence based problem solving, and the generation of dynamic, thoughtful concepts that galvanise teams and activate audiences.

Over 20 years, Heath has excelled in a variety of leadership roles and founded numerous projects. His unique and wide ranging professional experience — ranging from strategic planning of arts organisations to managing government products — has equipped him with the ability to communicate with diverse stakeholders, identify emerging opportunities, align creative ideas with commercial interests, and to deliver outcomes of the highest quality.

Further examples of this work include the direction of an arts festival at the end of the world, production of a museum exhibition from the future, the establishment of a regional creative community, an unforgettable walk through Blue Mountains history, conjuring the magic of Hollywood in Surry Hills, the creation of Australia’s #1 design magazine, and the delivery of mind expanding stories to people every Monday morning.

Heath acknowledges the Awabakal and Worimi peoples as the traditional custodians of the land and waters of Newcastle, and pays his respects to Elders past and present.
