Looking for a freelance graphic designer working from Wellington for clients all over the world? Read more and get in touch to find out what I have to offer you including branding, advertising, marketing, design for publications, environments and digital platforms. 

Hello there!

I hope you've enjoyed my collection of favourite projects and the stories behind them. As for the story behind me: I graduated from Massey University with first class honours in 2010. My major project launched me into the industry with membership and the highest award of Commendation from the International Society of Typographic Designers, along with third place in Visual Design in the 2010 Australasian Student Design Awards, as well as a gold in the Student Graphic Design category at the 2010 Best Awards.

Since then, I've worked for four years at Fortyfive Design Studio, Wellington, spent an internship at Frost, Sydney, and worked for two years as the in-house graphic designer for Museums Wellington, where my wayfinding work was recognised as a finalist in the 2016 Best Awards. I've also contracted to a smattering of independent clients, from architects to humanitarian organisations and all sorts in between – in New Zealand, Australia and the United Kingdom. 

I've been privileged to work on an array of fabulous projects, including branding, advertising, corporate collateral, online identities, spatial environments including wayfinding and exhibitions, packaging and publications. Whatever the medium – whether it's a business card or the back of a bus – I love weaving together design concept, strategy and craft to communicate effectively to my client’s market with clarity, vibrancy and personality.

So if you're looking for a freelance graphic designer or just want to say hi, get in touch below. It could be the start of something wonderful...

“We really enjoyed working with Tessa to develop our company’s new brand. Tessa carefully listened to our brief and clearly communicated the scope of her services. As Tessa developed our brand she listened to our feedback and then surprised us with reworked solutions that we couldn’t have imagined, however worked perfectly. We are really pleased with how our new brand represents us and reflects our company’s market position.”
