Last September I had an epic adventure mountain biking and photographing the Heaphy Track with the entertaining company of Matt Proctor and Dave Everton. If there was ever a mountain bike (or hike for that matter) that should be on your bucket list, this is it.
Our little adventure is now available in print in the latest issue of NZBike. I was graphic designer for the magazine for the past few years and this was the last issue I worked on. It was a great experience and awesome to leave my own personal stamp on the publication.
You can pick up a copy of the magazine including the four page feature here www.endurancesport.co.nz/nzbike.cfm

The Reef Beachfront Apartments in Tauranga required a redesign of their existing logo. The client wanted to include an outline of the infamous Mount Maunganui and words ‘The Reef’.
The chosen design incorporates a hand drawn outline of ‘The Mount’ which also uses negative space to create a wave shape. The logo is finished off with a modern, clean san seriff font.
Just finished a new poster and web update for the Auckland Half Ironman in March 2015. This was a relatively free flowing brief which gave me a chance to get the creative juices flowing. The final design incorporates a stylized Auckland skyline, native bush as white space and layered images of past winners. I distressed the images using a grunge bitmap and also used this in the background. The remaining white space was used for logo placement and wording. Designed using Photoshop, Illustrator and Indesign.
2014 Poster and Logo design for the Onehunga Half Marathon. The clients required a freshen up their existing branding with a modern clean look.

I literally have hundreds if not thousands of photos of my beautiful hometown Lake Wanaka. Unfortunately 99% of them have resided deep within my computer hard drive, yearning to be printed in some form or another.
Inspired by a surf magazine cover I created a collage and printed it on the finest quality German canvas. It is now available from the coolest art store in the Southern Hemisphere, The Wonder Room (limited edition of 10). To get your hands on one of these bad boys head to www.wonderroom.co.nz
Thanks! : )
I was recently contracted to create a new logo for the cycling website yellowjersey. The site covers both national and international cycling news across all disciplines. The brief was to create a logo to fit a 260 x 150 pixel space, incorporate the colour yellow and include a ‘Maillot Jaune’ icon (the yellow jersey worn by a Tour De France stage winner.
After sketching a page of concepts we whittled it down to three finals. The chosen one from these three includes a graphic of a cyclist crossing the finish line wearing the Maillot Jaune. Alongside the rider is the bold san seriff font ‘yellow jersey’ in uppercase for clarity and impact. The final design uses various design techniques including, sketching, scanning, Photoshop and Illustrator to create the final vector file.
This design for Peter Wells (owner of Ali Babas Wanaka) was inspired by the vintage postage stamps of the early 20th century. Peter was keen to turn this into a graphic that could be screened on to tee shirts for his employees and loyal clients. The final product was a combination of various elements from the stamps mixed with icons from the Ali Babas logo. It took a bit of research and plenty of layers in Illustrator but we were both pretty stoked with the final design. Can’t wait to see it printed!
I was recently contracted by MJ Media to create a new poster for their Coromandel Classic Multisport race. The iconic event runs over two days and includes a mix of running, mountain biking, kayaking and road cycling. MJ Media wanted the poster to be simple yet effective. I used the bright orange on black to give a strong contrast and also to tie in with the logo. I also used icons for the different disciplines to show what is involved in the event. To finish the poster of i used a textured background behind the logo and a solid bold serif type to really stand out.
