Selected work

BetterSaver KiwiSaver finder refresh

Design and copy improvements to BetterSaver’s online KiwiSaver finder tool, which asks participants a series of simple questions then offers to switch them to a more suitable KiwiSaver fund.

BetterSaver brand & UI refresh

Conducted a visual audit to explore potential brand and UI crossover, then elevate both in this sophisticated and security-driven space. This included icons, other graphical brand elements, a fixed colour palette and a new typeface.

PlaceMakers Trade service design and app prototype

Designed the digitisation of services including an all-new mobile app for the trade division of hardware retailer PlaceMakers. This was a textbook design process addressing longstanding industry-wide problems that went far beyond basic e-commerce.

Open case study



Powershop website

Powershop's website was designed with considerable UX testing in order to demystify pay-as-you-go power for consumers, and was responsive to encourage them to sign up on impulse from anywhere.
