We design memorable brands by crafting engaging communications through design-led thinking.

Graphic Design, Promotion & Brand Development Agency

From brand identity design to marketing communications, we connect your brand to your customer.

We develop customer-centric brand identities and campaigns that connect seamlessly with your values and aspirations. With extensive experience among both large multinational corporations and small-to-medium sized businesses, we will never sacrifice relevance on the altar of creativity, so you can be assured of a meaningful, current and effective result.

Our desire is to create build a brand for your business that performs and connects. The catch to our customer-centric approach is that you’re not our customer – your customer is our customer (that’s who we have to impress!).

Witnessing people benefit as a direct result of our work is powerful and rewarding – more rewarding than the temporary thrill of making something new. It’s a great feeling to see our designs taking an active role in growing a business and see other people recognising that value.

Brand development, a company profile, signage, brochure design, advertising campaign or an annual report… whatever we design, we understand your objectives first, focusing on the ‘why’ before we get to the ‘how’. We also aim to deliver a solution that’s financially realistic, sustainable and future-proof.

Our graphic design team is a fusion of talented creatives and our style is collaborative, we engage with you at all steps of your project keeping you in the loop on developments, and making sure that what we’re doing;

  • Is memorable

"I own a small family owned traffic management company based in Turangi. I made contact Jo from ninetyblack because I wanted to give our brand a facelift. Jo was down to earth, bright, and treated me like a person (which is always a bonus) it was like Jo and I had gone to school together, and we were meeting at our school reunion, that's the connection Jo created with me as a client. I was sent our first set of brand drafts, and I was blown away they had hit the nail on the head, or rather set the traffic cone in the right place. The brand was exactly what I didn't know I wanted. Jo and the team are locals who know the local scene, and live locally, just like me, and my staff. I absolutely 100% recommend Jo and ninetyblack. If you're looking for excellent graphic design, website development, and advertising, they're the one's to approach whether you're local to the Taupo region or not. The true experts. Top marks Jo"
