Design Juice is an advertising agency that was established in Mount Maunganui, Tauranga in 2005.  Ultimately we’re in the businesses of creating success.  By delivering fresh design, strong brand identities and innovative advertising campaigns, we help our clients succeed – which in turn makes us successful.

We know that clients are a business’s best sales team.  We are proud of the fact that in the sixteen years in business as a Tauranga advertising agency, we have never had to advertise.  All our business has been by referral, word of mouth, winning pitches and or instilling such confidence in prospective clients that they choose us first.

Who is Michaela James

Michaela James is the owner and creative director of Design Juice.  After five years managing one of Tauranga’s largest advertising agencies , Michaela saw an opportunity to start an approachable agency that could offer fresh, innovative creative and astute marketing advice – all delivered with enthusiasm and passion but without the hefty price tag.  And so Design Juice was born.

Michaela is an innovative thinker, inspired designer and astute businesswoman – a powerful combination that has led her to achieve great success – for her advertising agency and graphic design company, and of course for her clients.

Michaela also owns The Vinyl Room a business producing designer wall vinyls that offer a simple and effective way to decorate interior spaces.

The Design Juice Team

We’re a small but powerful team – five graphic designers and a Social Media Specialist. We offer the skills and talents of a big advertising agency but with the flexibility, resourcefulness and agility that can only be found in a small agency.  We are experienced and educated in our respective fields that include advertising, graphic design, web design, branding, illustration, packaging design, print and signage. We know that it’s not just about pretty colours – there is a science behind advertising and we understand that.

What Sets Us Apart from the Rest

We don’t have big overheads, issue complicated brief documents or make elaborate presentations.  We want you to spend your precious money at the front line – making every marketing dollar count.  We get straight down to business and work hard to get your business out to your market.  When you contact Design Juice in Tauranga, you don’t talk to a receptionist, then an account manager and then a designer – you always speak directly to the person working for you, meaning less time wasted and more efficient results.
