Bio

Mike has nine years professional experience in brand building, packaging and illustration. Having grown up in an artistic family on a small farm near Palmerston North, he's not afraid to get his hands dirty and enjoys getting stuck into a job.

 

A passionate creative that produces well resolved design solutions. He brings brands to life — taking them from operational to inspirational. Well practiced in using strategy and insight to elevate businesses, building authentic and confident brand voices. He thinks that good design is good storytelling — when combined with a unique concept it is an unbeatable combination.

 

Working with packaging as a physical medium is a rewarding design challenge — it is a constantly evolving, versatile 3-dimensional canvas.  Well crafted packaging adds significant value to a product — for producer and end-user alike.

 

While brand and packaging have been my staples, Mike is always looking forward to pushing his creative thinking into new realms. He boasts a range of experience in digital media, film, animation, interior design and wayfinding.
