About Saskia

I've been working in the design industry for 9 years, working across various platforms to achieve well-crafted and thoughtful design solutions. I believe strategic thinking and a great idea are key to any successful design.

I'm passionate about typography and craft and I like to challenge the status quo. My favourite part of the design process is research, experimentation and discovery.

I enjoy the opportunity to excite, entertain, influence and inform an audience through design. Seeing an audience engage with your work, adding value, surprise and delight to ones every day experience, a business and brand transformed - these are some of the most rewarding parts of being a designer.

I believe in a multi-disciplinary approach to design and art direction. The best design will draw inspiration far and wide. I’m influenced by a love of film, music, contemporary art and architecture. While my aesthetic is classic and considered I will always strive to give each project its own unique voice. Please view my portfolio here.

Clients I’ve worked alongside include:
Air New Zealand, Yellow pages, TOA architects, Random House New Zealand and various small to medium start-ups.

My strengths lie in branding, art direction, packaging and publication design.

I've relocated to Melbourne and I'm interested in meeting other creatives in the industry and expanding my network. Please get it in touch via email:
