Best endorsement: “Wellington Free Ambulance have been working with Karen for almost fours years and we couldn’t imagine working with anyone else. Working with Karen on all our design needs is an absolute delight from start to finish.
Karen completely understands our brand and style, and really recognises what we want to achieve with each project. She uses her knowledge and expertise to deliver what she knows is on message and in line with all our other material. Everything Karen crafts is bright and fresh – from posters, flyers, invitations, digital elements, supporter magazines, direct mail packs, annual reports, campaign materials and even last year she worked directly with our freelance photographer to create a beautiful 70 page photography book, telling the Wellington Free story.
For the past four years Karen has created all the advertising and marketing materials for our annual street appeal – Onesie Day, a much loved and celebrated day across Wellington and Wairarapa. With their eye catching yet simplistic design, Wellingtonians love and recognise our Onesie Day designs on billboards, bus backs, online adverts and school activity packs.
Karen is highly responsive, works incredibly quickly, always sticks to deadlines and routinely goes above and beyond to excel our expectations, even when we know we have given an extremely difficult piece of work or tight deadline.
Communication with Karen is seamless, and over the years we have worked together to refine our processes and create an even more efficient way of working together. Karen is incredibly flexible and adaptable and none of our work would look so beautiful without her.”
- Sarah Coulthard, Wellington Free Ambulance
