Steph Holt


I'm Steph - founder and the creative director/design strategist behind Rubyfive Design. 


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 over a decade of experience 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, 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?!)


Based in Blenheim, Marlborough with the wonders of modern technology and the benefits of timezones Rubyfive Design helps clients anywhere.
