Faye Lougher from Writeability was looking to modernise her marketing material. I was asked to come up with a new business card which would better reflect the kind of work she does.
See below her original business card.
I designed a range of ideas for her to consider, using different images and a range of typefaces to suggest writing and editing.
Faye chose which picture (7.) and type style (2.) she preferred, and by using these combinations I was able to come up with the final design. (10)
Below are examples of how the card design progressed . . .
This is her final business card.
I have worked with Gail on a number of her projects, providing editing services, and I have been very impressed with her creative skills and professionalism.
When I needed new business cards, Gail came up with a range of designs – which was fantastic, as I had no idea what I wanted!
Being a fussy client (sorry Gail!), I kept getting her to tweak the original design until we both looked at it and said “that’s it”. I’m thrilled with the end result and the reaction I get from my clients when I hand over the new cards has been overwhelmingly positive.
I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Gail Mylne of Mixed Media Design as her attention to detail and professionalism are matched by her creative design skills and talent.
Cynthia Owens from Cynthia Owens Insurance was looking to modernise her marketing material. I was asked to come up with a new business card and flyer to promote her business and to give it a professional look.
See below her original business card.
Cynthia wanted to include a crystal ball in her card to portray the message . . .
"your future is never crystal clear".
See below the final design for the card and flyer.
To save Cynthia time and money I changed the colour of her outfit from an existing photo to match her new branding.
Gail of Mixed Media Design designed my logo for my business recently.
What an amazing job Gail did for me. I have had fantastic comments about how good it is and people have asked me who has done it for me. Gail was very professional and honest in her advice and was fantastic too deal with.
I would recommend Gail to anyone that would like to use her services.

Lindsey Griffiths from Jewellery Collections wanted to rebrand her existing business by updating her logo and mission statement to make it more in keeping with her modern, elegant range of jewellery.
See below her original branding.
We decided to keep the symbols from her existing logo and include them with a new concept.
I was asked to come up with some new concepts for her to choose from. Lindsey settled on the following logo and by-line. See below.
Using this design, I made up a business card.
I was then asked to create a range of related print design material including: business/loyalty cards, flyers, gift vouchers, advertising, stickers for bags, a new look for her website, and signage for her new shop in Maclean Street, Paraparaumu.
I had wanted to rebrand my business, but was wary because of an unpleasant past experience with a graphic designer, but from the first phone conversation Gail was fantastic. She alleviated my fears straight away and when she came back to me with the first logo ideas it was clear she had listened to the concept I wanted.
Gail not only designed my new ‘look and logo’ but all the other marketing material I required. From business cards and flyers to advertisments and gift vouchers, she kept me involved with every project. All it takes is a quick phone call or email to explain what I have required (often at very short notice) and Gail produces the concept within the required time frame.
Often the first proof doesn’t even need to be changed. It is a pleasure to deal with Gail and her eye for detail and design shows with every project she has handled for me.
Over the years I have worked with Duncan from Dimensional Designs to produce a variety of abstract art pieces.
Duncan is a professional photographer who has an eye for finding beauty is his surroundings. I have worked closely with him in combining photos in Photoshop to produce award winning pieces.
See below a sample of some of the pieces I have worked on . . .
