First class design

Our branding philosophy
Branding isn't just designing a pretty "on trend" logo that can be copied off Canva, it's a process by which a story is told through exploration of colour, style, imagery, vibe, user experience and written content to create and represent the personality of your brand. Once established, consistency is key across all platforms.
Your one stop shop
CBD has the graphics, digital, and marketing expertise to be your one stop shop, ensuring a cohesive look across all platforms. When it comes to launching your brand into the market place you want to get it right the first time and dealing with the one company that can facilitate all your needs is a definite advantage.
Meet your designer
With Degree in hand my first role as a Graphic Designer was working for Nutra-life Health and Fitness in Auckland New Zealand. Branding, packaging and point sale were all part of my daily duties, however the world was calling and a year later I was off on my "Big OE" to gain further experience working in the Uk for various agencies such as Pearl Fisher Advertising Agency and as a brand designer/developer for fashion labels Hackett and Henri Lloyd.
Returning home four years later and a stint working as a chef on the super yachts, I gained employment as an in-house Graphic Designer for Independent Liquor New Zealand, ( Asahi Beverages ). A year later I was promoted to New Product Development Manager and Brand Manager for one of their most successful brands "Mudshake". This involved running a studio of Graphic Designers and overseeing production of all packaging and labelling requirements.
I returned to my home town of Hamilton to raise a family and it was then that I developed a thriving successful design studio. CBD works with a variety of clients and companies both big and small. I still have a huge passion for design in all forms and helping clients to bring their ideas, products, or new businesses to fruition is inspiring and extremely rewarding.
