 Hello! I enjoy creating clean, crisp, effective, and beautiful designs for clients throughout New Zealand and overseas.

I love creating connections with small to medium businesses and taking over all their branding needs to ensure effective, efficient, affordable roll-outs that take the hassle out of your business marketing. 

Job title: Graphic Designer

Location: Porirua, Wellington

Experience: I began my career in 2002 after graduating with a Higher National Diploma majoring in Graphic Design. Following this I spent six years working for design companies in the UK. In 2008 I moved to New Zealand and became a freelancer trading as Designerbloom Graphic Design. Having worked on a variety of design projects over the years I have a varied and diverse skills set. I have worked with a variety of clients including sole traders, start-ups, and large multi-national businesses.

Specialities: Creating clean, crisp, effective and beautiful designs for clients throughout New Zealand and overseas. 

I'm looking for: I really enjoy working with business owners to create their entire brand (logo, business cards, signage, website, social media, etc.). I also enjoy projects such as Annual Reports, and have a lot of experience working for multinational businesses (for example The National Health Service in the UK, a UK book publishing company, and Resene Paints, NZ).

Best endorsement: "Sara-Jane at Designerbloom has created a stunning ebook for my business along with support on tweaking website, instagram images, landing pages etc. So easy and responsive to deal with - it is always a pleasure to find a business that you can establish an ongoing relationship with who enables your own business to grow. I used to try to do my own graphics but it never looked professional and amazing. Now my business brand looks exactly how I wanted it to look in my mind." Claire Talbot Scuplt Garden Design.

Availability/lead time: I can usually start a project within 2-4 weeks of hearing from a client. I am an efficient designer, but the time it takes to complete a project depends on what is required. Generally, the whole process takes 2-6 weeks give or take how many revisions are made and the turnaround time for feedback.

Please note, when I am ‘in the creative zone’ I silence my phone to avoid distraction. I will get back to you as soon as possible, usually within 2 working days. I look forward to hearing from you!
