Hi there, I am a graphic designer and photographer who brings curiosity, energy and enthusiasm to all my projects.

With over fifteen years experience in the world of visual communication, both in New Zealand and New York, I have gained a reputation for being a very thoughtful, respectful and creative designer. 

Let's work together!
If you have a business or project that requires a skilled visual communicator to help bring it to life, I can certainly help you with that! I work in the areas of naming, branding, packaging, website design and printed marketing material. Be in touch and let's chat! Send me an email.

 

Graphic Design

For me graphic design is the perfect balance of creativity, logic and human communication. I work in the areas of branding, marketing, print and web. Do you have a business that needs naming, branding, packaging, a website and printed marketing material? I can help you with that! Have a look around my design projects here.

Latest Project: Yoga Link redesign

Rosie Percival and I had the great pleasure of being asked to redesign the Iyengar Yoga Institute of New Zealand's annual yoga journal. We brought energy and life to the redesign, with colour coded section, bold imagery, clear typography and a spacious layout.

Photography

I shall never tire of the magic of photography – the ability to capture moments and the moments between moments, turning what is now in the past into an image that can be seen now and into the future. Have a look around my photography projects here.

In My Clients' Words

Great fun and highly productive
Strategy, brand, web design 

Catherine is a very good listener and has the ability to translate random thoughts of a client into imaginative design ideas. She has international experience and a vast professional toolbox of artistic talent, to bring to a design project. I appreciate her enthusiasm, excellent on-time communications...with her unique touch of good humour! Her energy is invigorating. Working with Catherine is great fun and highly productive.

Exceeds expectations
Print design, marketing

Catherine is very talented, yet humble and such a pleasure to work with. She manages the subtle art of balancing clever design while maintaining the clients best interests at heart. The end result always exceeds my expectations. 

I can’t recommend Catherine highly enough, she is a delight to work with.

— Tessa Meek, Iyengar Yoga Centre of Wellington

Sensitivity & understanding
Yoga retreat photography

Over the course of the week Catherine nailed everything. She was sensitive, attuned, intuitive and worked without any instruction. She knew what was needed, what she was doing and she just got on and did it.

I highly recommend Catherine for any photographic assignment, especially one that requires a great degree of sensitivity and understanding.

— Kara-Leah Grant, Heart of Freedom
