Make Hey is a graphic design studio in Pukerua Bay, New Zealand, led by myself, Kate Johnson.  I work across a range of industries to produce conceptually rich, aesthetically timeless designs.  My work strives to find balance at the intersection of function and beauty, masculine and feminine, old and new. I have been delighted to work with clients both locally and internationally.

I am a brand specialist producing conceptually rich, aesthetically timeless design

Studio

Design isn’t just about how something looks, it’s about how it makes people feel.  That’s why I never just create a logo, I build full brands.  I work with clients to draw out and celebrate the deeper meaning behind their business, let that guide the design process, and create a memorable experience for their audience to interact and connect with.

About me

Philosophy

READ ABOUT MY PROCESS

Design with deeper meaning.

Your story and passion behind what you do is the foundation we want to build off of, so the first step is to dive into your brand’s values, goals and why your audience is drawn to you.  You’ll fill out a simple questionnaire to find that deeper meaning to get us started.

01 – Brand Exploration

After reviewing your questionnaire, I’ll put together a creative direction that outlines how we’ll use design to accomplish your brand goals.  I’ll present this with some gathered imagery for inspiration to make sure that we’re on the same page with the visual direction that we want to go in.

02 – Creative Direction

This is where things get really fun. I’ll let my creativity go wild, crafting meaningful concepts for you with our creative direction as my guide.  Slowly and thoughtfully, we’ll weed through different ideas and find what feels right for you and your audience.

03 – Creation + Refinement

Once everything is approved and feels perfect, I’ll hand over everything to you and help you launch your new brand.  I’m also happy to recommend or communicate with printers for you if you choose to apply your new brand to print pieces after our project is finished.

04 – Time to launch
