My core service is brand identity design for small to medium sized business; everything you’ll need, starting with logo design through to stationery, marketing collateral, packaging, signage, uniforms, website design and SEO – whatever you need for your new business or to enliven an existing brand. Aside from my role as your graphic designer, I will also manage the implementation of your new brand identity, whether you use my suppliers or your own. If it’s not branding you need, I do take on one-off jobs too, see examples here. So if you want your business to look the business, contact me today.
In brief, I grew up on a farm in Southern Hawke’s Bay, did fairly well at rugby and cricket, joined the Army for 20 months after school, worked in my father’s contract fencing business for 2 years, went overseas in 1991, had a brilliant time, worked in loads of crappy jobs, came home to stay on boxing day 1997. Studied Tourism at AUT, gained my diploma, found it to be not good for much. On the strength of the brochures and fliers ‘designed’ during the Tourism course and photos taken during my travels, I was accepted into the NATCOL diploma of graphic design course in 2000.
Spent 3 years working for small design firms but toward the end of this time built up my own small stable of clients until I felt comfortable enough to go it alone in January 2004. Now married with two dogs, living and working from my home studio in the brilliant but little known suburb of Arch Hill (Grey Lynn), Central Auckland.

You are buying an individually crafted brand identity design, totally exclusive to your brand’s requirements. Each identity is carefully researched, conceptualised, developed and refined through to completion (see ‘process’). At which point you will receive the electronic files of your new logo (.eps, .jpg, .tif, .psd, .png, .bmp) print ready files of your stationery and collateral, your brand font/s and your ID style guide, swiftly followed by the printed items.
These are the tangibles – the first visual elements of your brand, that is, your brand’s identity. So this is what you are paying for and what you receive. But really what you are doing is investing in the future of your business and your brand.
