Rangitīkei District Council

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.

ACS Marketing

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.

After two years in which our lives were disrupted by the pandemic, so too has our perspective on the future completely shifted. To be back in familiar environment, surrounded by like-minded creative brains listening to the great and the good of the design world was nothing short of cathartic.

Daylight saving – what’s it all about anyway? AND how to avoid feeling tired when the clocks go forward

During the daylight-saving months we are on ‘New Zealand daylight time’, which is 1 hour ahead of New Zealand standard time.

These dates and the time of the change are heavily publicised in the lead up to the change through television and radio advertisements, local council websites and national newspapers. So how come it always takes me by surprise? And how come I never know if that means MORE sleep or LESS sleep each time the clocks change?
