I just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU for all you have done for the re-design of our wedding brochure. All of the staff here are so impressed with the final results, and it is an amazing feeling to be able to hand out a brochure that I’m really proud of and that really captures what we’re able to offer here at Waverly.

All of us here at Waimarino will definitely be recommending Design Juice for any design work.  Thanks again!

When we developed some land in Katikati and needed to prepare it for market, Michaela took the reins and did a fantastic job. It began with the concept, brand development and launch, followed by well thought out marketing and advertising campaigns for every stage release. Middlebrook is now a well-recognised and appreciated brand in Katikati – and is almost SOLD OUT. It is a place its residents are proud of and a lot of this is down to Middlebrook’s brand identity and how it relates to our target market. Tauranga branding and advertising agency Design Juice nailed it.

I have worked with Michaela James and her Design Juice team for many years now on various projects and we have no intention of this changing. It is like having your own marketing team down the hallway – they understand our business, our needs and they deliver excellent results.

When I started my business four years ago, Michaela James at Design Juice was there – from conception, her advice on branding design and future branding was fantastic and still is. I have now been using her and her branding design team since then and will continue to do so as she has been outstanding with her ideas and not only that, she is an amazing business woman to deal with. She is so passionate about my business and brands and is always there to assist me with anything I need for my business. M Collections wouldn’t be where it is now without Design Juice’s input in my amazing branding.

Michaela at Design Juice in Mount Maunganui is such a pleasure to continually deal with and nothing is ever a problem. She is so professional yet so friendly and approachable, and an amazing designer and branding extraordinaire.

We were looking for a Company to help us with our re-branding.  We met with various branding agencies, but none of them were in the running after meeting with Michaela.

Michaela just ‘got’ what we needed (probably more than we did) and came up with some excellent branding concept designs that we loved!

Her brand design and development service was always amazing, and any changes were made efficiently and without fuss. We were working to a tight time frame, and the team always went above and beyond to deliver.

We see the team at Design Juice as an extension of our Company, and always gain their expert advice to ensure a consistent image and branding moving forward.

I have been working with Michaela & the team at Design Juice in Mt Maunganui since I re-launched my business in 2013. Having met Michaela when she designed my wedding invitations in 2008, I was very impressed with her dedication and understanding of a client’s individual needs. I loved my invites and I still love them to this day.

Since 2013, I have been so happy with the communication and ability to create an idea in a fresh and industry-related way. Her time keeping is impeccable and even when I have last minute ideas, she is always happy to accommodate.

I would thoroughly recommend Design Juice to anyone wanting to take their business in a fresh direction.
