I’m proud to be a designer and part of the TimeZoneOne team. Come to me if you need a set of fresh eyes. I love to take complex information and make it easier to understand, and visually interesting.
I believe that great design is great communication. Good communication needs to capture your attention, engage your brain and simply get across the message, hopefully in an attractive package.
Making stuff and making people happy has always been my thing. Especially stuff that looks good (although tasting good, works well too). As a kid I was the one who always had a project on the go; painting, drawing, papier-mâché, sewing, card making … what I enjoy about my work is that I get to make great stuff everyday with a talented bunch of people.
I love working in a team and enjoy the open environment where people are always striving for their best. When a job is done well it makes me happy and our clients happy too.
My involvement with the School of the Art Institute of Chicago undergraduate and graduate promotional material has been particularly rewarding. The graduate piece, in particular, was a massive undertaking, a 220-page book representing the many different departments at the art school, a challenging project to coordinate but the end result was very positive.
I love the outdoors and I am fortunate to live in the quirky port town of Lyttelton, nestled between Christchurch’s Port Hills and the harbour. I walk in the hills most mornings before work. I also enjoy mountain biking and a little kayaking. I enjoy good food (especially meals I haven’t had to cook), good company and any kind of wine. I’ve also recently developed a taste for indie-style, folk music.
My family life is often crazy busy! I live with my very understanding husband, four children and two nutty cats. I probably drink too much whiskey.
