Helping your business tell its story better.
Through functional, focused and effective design Rubyfive Design helps small businesses and entrepreneurs connect and engage with their customers.
Starting or growing a business is really hard!
Perhaps you've started something new, or maybe you've been in business for a while — either way, it likely started with a great idea and a can-do spirit. To make your idea (and maybe even your dream) a reality it takes a lot of planning, patience and persistence. Because of that, your business deserves to shine and have its story told!
You know what makes your business special
— let me help you uncover its potential, and give your business the brand identity, website and marketing it deserves!
Having a well functioning, streamlined and effective website is a necessity in any business.
I create sites starting at simple one-page sites to full online store solutions with the added benefit that you'll be able to manage your own site without ongoing maintenance fees.
Some kind words
"When I contacted Steph I knew we were off to a positive start when she suggested we meet for a coffee. Many coffees later the branding for The Picton Bookshop is beautiful. The process that Steph took us through was rigorous and thorough. Everything was well thought through and it has been a lot of fun.
Steph's attention to detail is meticulous and her appreciation and enthusiasm for our business has made working with her easy. Some of the strengths Steph has brought to our project are her ability to solve problems creatively and her excellent communication skills.
We are looking forward to continuing our working relationship as the business progresses!"
Megan Bruce, The Picton Bookshop
Hi I'm Steph, I embrace the cliches of being a graphic designer who wears black framed glasses and drinks too much coffee – but one would argue if there really is such a thing?!
With 14+ years as a designer and a plethora of other industry experience centred around customer service, I have a strongly held belief in the importance of providing really good customer service. It is that service that's the core of what I bring to Rubyfive Design.
I'm all about genuinely getting to know my clients, being enthusiastic about their businesses and really understanding how their story wants and needs to be told.
When not designing you'll find me being "mum" to a gorgeous young man, riding some of the awesome trails around Marlborough, listening to podcasts, practicing modern hand calligraphy and I occasionally exchange the coffee for a glass of Rose or Pinot!
Working with my clients is the best part of what I do, so please get in touch and let's have a chat! (I offer no obligation, complimentary first hour consultations so why wouldn't you?!)
