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.

Threads launched on 6 July to great acclaim. But, are creatives, designers and strategists embracing the Instagram-linked app? If not, why not?

Do you remember a time (not that long ago) when we couldn't travel? Same.

I made a promise to myself during that time that I would never take for granted ever again the sheer unmistakable joy of being able to go somewhere, anywhere else that I wanted to visit. A recent trip to Melbourne justified that promise I made to myself. And it was fabulous. Here's what I got up to…
