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!


Brand identity
& logo design


Branding is more than just a logo, it is a direct reflection of your business.


Working collaboratively with you, I'll create a compelling brand image and a functional, comprehensive identity to tell your story.


Website design


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. 


Marketing collateral & stationery

Support your brand with digital and print design such as business cards & stationery, flyers & brochures, menus, signage, clothing & apparel, print ads, social media artwork and more.

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 12+ 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 may have even exchanged 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?!)
