I am a senior designer and art director with over 12 years experience, specialised in branding, corporate design and webdesign. I was born in Germany, but have been
living in New Zealand for the past 8 years. Based in West Auckland I have been working with businesses, large and small, local and from across the country.
I am also available for contract work. So if you are looking for an experienced, reliable and friendly freelance designer with a lovely German accent, I am happy to help out when the pile of work is growing to big.
How I got to New Zealand
University, training in different agencies and my first permanent job as a graphic designer. After three years in the design world of Berlin I decided to follow a dream that was still surviving from school times. Before "I would like to" became "I wish I had" I packed my backpack, grabbed my Lonely Planet and was on my way to New Zealand.
A year later I returned to Germany just to pack the rest of my belongings and came back to Auckland to do what I enjoy most. Design.

"Linda is a very slick and professional graphic designer. Her skills are a great asset and I have used her to greatly add value to a number of projects. More importantly, she works to deadlines, delivers high quality work when she says she will and is very easy to communicate with. Although I am now based in Wellington she is still my go-to person for graphic design."
Janet MacDonald, Director, ChangeHub
"Linda was a fabulous support for our small in-house marketing department and confidently worked alongside senior sales and marketing staff and external brand and media agencies.
Her design is eloquent and I was impressed with how she analysed feedback and implemented changes accordingly. She very quickly adopted the brand 'look and feel' and competently picked up the ad bookings process as well as the busy design role.
She was involved with the roll-out of the LDV Vans brand re-fresh which was extremely successful. I would highly recommend her to any organisation – she is a pleasure to work with."
