Sarah-Jayne and Sean were exceptional to work with on the design and print for community engagement on our spatial planning project – Pae Tawhiti Rangitīkei Beyond. With an incredibly short timeframe Sarah-Jayne created a huge number of exceptially high quality looking documents – a full discussion document, summary documents and engagement material. Sean leading the print
management made this part of the process a breeze. We are exceptionally happy with the results and highly recommend the team at Lemonface Creative.

Sarah-Jayne is an incredibly talented designer and creative brain! She understands the brief and transforms it into creative designs that cut through and appeal to the target audience. I have worked closely with Lemonface Creative on the production of a magazine and the editorial layout and attention to detail is exceptional. Sarah-Jayne is easy to communicate with and always gets the job completed within timelines. A pleasure to work with and a unicorn designer.

The Importance of celebrating company anniversaries

As we get stuck into the new year, especially this year, we find ourselves looking forward to many things. A particularly exciting event here at Lemonface Creative is our approaching 7th anniversary. Yup we’ll be 7 on March 1st. As the big day nears, we’ve been reflecting on the importance of celebrating an anniversary, and what all that entails. Anniversaries are more than opportunities to recognise significant milestones—if properly taken advantage of, they can provide a space for all employees to pause and reflect on their organisation’s journey to the present and recognize their personal role in it. In planning this year’s milestone we’re going to discuss a few ways for YOU to seize the opportunity of celebrating YOUR business.
