    Logo Design

    Various Clients

    I love working with clients to create logos that really suit the work that they do. I have designed many logos for a diverse range of clients. Here is a small selection of them.

    Brochure Design

    Various Clients

    One of my favourite things is working on multi-page documents for my clients. I love a job I can get my teeth into. I pay attention to the details, ensuring the pages all work together harmoniously, and flow as a cohesive document.


    Various Clients

    I have been working in advertising since the 1990s, many years as a freelancer within some of Auckland's best known Ad Agencies – Adworks, M&C Saatchi, Y&R Advertising, DesignWorks, Dunham Bremmer and more. I have also spent some time freelancing in London and was regularly specifically requested to return to the places that I worked. I have worked alongside clients such as Rebel Sport, Briscoes, Paper Plus, ANZ Bank, DB Breweries, Bayleys Real Estate and the Royal Bank of Scotland. Many of those clients specifically requested that I do their work, rather than anyone else in the Studio. And some of the work I produced is still in use today, and the influence of my designs are still evident in advertising material to this day.


    Since leaving full-time employment to start a family I have done small advertising projects, and these are the ones featured here.


    Pizazz Graphic Display Systems

    I made line drawings for an installation brochure (for which I also did the artwork) for Pizazz Graphic Display Systems.

    Labels and more

    Maniototo Wool

    Mary and I have worked together to produce wool wraps, labels, patterns and a brochure for her locally produced wool label Maniototo Wool.


    Rory Thomson, Photographer

    Rory is a photographer that I have worked with for many years. He does product photography for, among other clients, Briscoes and Rebel Sport, and he sends me the photographs to clearcut to a template.
