The one stop shop for all your graphic, website design and development needs.
Based in Hawkes Bay, New Zealand.

Hi there, Thanks for dropping by!

**PLEASE NOTE: I’m not currently taking on new clients**

I’m Briar, a creative freelancer. I ensure brands are kept strong and consistent from print material through to websites for small to medium sized businesses and organisations.

In order to really understand a business, I take pride in building great relationships with each of my clients. Through being transparent (with cost) and honest (with recommendations), over the last 11 years, 85% of my clients have come to me via word of mouth.
As well as working directly with organisation/business owners, I enjoy working alongside other graphic designers, and web developers filling their ‘need’ gap. From this, I have built a great network of talent around me – so if for some reason I’m not the best fit for your project, I have no hesitation in recommending someone who will be.
I have gained a Bachelor in Computing Systems (UNITEC) and Diploma in Graphic Design – with a ‘Highly Commended in Design’ Industry Award (Media Design School).

Why ‘Generate’?

Everything I design and/or develop for your business, is essentially to generate some kind of return on investment, whether it be:

  • Sales
  • Awareness
  • Leads + Relationships
  • Content
  • Community
  • Thought

My Services

Branding

Create or refresh your logo and apply it to stationery, signage, marketing material.

Websites

Create an effective, strategic and mobile-friendly online presence for your business/organisation.

CMS

A Content Management System gives you the tools to update content on your website.

Domains/Hosting

Let me manage all your domains, emails and hosting – three less things for you to worry about.

Online Stores

Sell your products worldwide securely and effectively.

e-Newsletters

Send html based emails and track what activity recipients do.

Monitoring

Monitor website activity to view trends and refine your strategy.

Maintenance

Tweak the design or update the content to keep your site fresh and relevant.

Who do I work with?

Direct Clients

A majority of my work is with small to medium sized local businesses, schools and non-profit organisations. Strategically establishing their print and digital branding so they generate what they need to!

Designers

I work alongside designers who provide Photoshop/Illustrator layouts and I go on to transform them into fully functional websites. I am also happy to offer feedback throughout the design process and educate on what makes a great design.

Developers

I work with a number of developers who require a creative touch to their clients website or UI solution. I provide all the necessary design files at the end, ready to be coded! Direct client interaction can be as little or as much given.

Agencies

I partner with Agencies who require that little bit extra of external (and anonymous) expertise. Whether a designer, developer, or sometimes, both!

      • Website Development

      I was supplied this lovely design by
      Awilaway, and asked to transform it into a website. It worked great on a desktop computer but was a bit tricky on mobile devices, so we simply adjusted the stylesheet which meant mobile users would still see the same information but in a more mobile-friendly interface.
