“Hi, I’m Debra (they call me the Design Queen). I work with businesses, individuals and organisations to help them brand themselves using imagery, graphics and website solutions so that they can build a true customer service experience and trust through visual mediums and great design.”

Thanks for visiting my website!

I am a media professional and highly experienced in website development, commercial print, branding, advertising and publishing.

I have been fortunate enough to work with some iconic New Zealand companies like TVNZ, Rainbow’s End and Mag & Turbo Warehouse. I’ve also been part of the Far North District Council communications team, on staff at The Northern Advocate and and have helped many fabulous small NZ businesses and organisations get themselves ‘out there’ with smart, well-designed branding, websites, graphics, advertising and media.

I am a trained Typographer with many years of graphic design experience, and am also qualified in Digital Media Design – studying at the prestigious Media Design School in Auckland and have experience in books and magazine publishing, Annual Reports, professional Tender documents, packaging design and much more.

I have proven skills and experience in web design, WordPress, CMS (content management systems) website management, HTML, CSS, online content, graphic design and branding – plus I have the drive, passion and knowledge to get a job done well and on time, every time.

I am a seasoned trouble-shooter with excellent organisational skills, a very keen eye for the fine details, set very high standards for what I produce and a genuine work ethic (I love to beat deadlines!).  I love a challenge, am a natural problem solver, forward thinker and contingency planner – all skills learned through work and life experiences.

Give me a call today on 021 521 470 or drop me a line to see if you’d like to work with me.
