World of Wine Tours

World of Wine Tours is run by husband and wife duo, Vince and Lynn. They contacted me to create them an online presence and we updated their brand along the way.

A single-scroll site that utilises parallax to let the photos do most of the talking; showing off wonderful Hawke's Bay vineyards and landscapes, the site is clean, to the point and allows travellers to request a booking online.

The Equine Herb Co.

The Equine Herb Company is a local wholesaler that specialises in high quality herbs for horses. 

They provide the biggest range of herbs in New Zealand, which retail in a large number of stores nation-wide, so they needed a website for potential retailers to view their products and provide a point of contact. Snapfire also created monthly HTML newsletters using a customised Mailchimp design.

Galvanising HB Logo & Vehicle Branding

Another fun vehicle branding project - the redesign of the Galvanising HB Logo, then creating a 'cool' branding look for the company utility vehicle.

They wanted it to be eye-catching with wow-factor, so I incorporated a photo of the galvanising process and had it sampled on different vinyl backings before selecting the one with the best look.

GER Group Truck Branding

Their side-business MailMinders has been worked into the site in a way that is cohesive, but separate by using a simple colour scheme change.

Te Awa Estates is a huge residential housing development scheme in Napier, Hawkes Bay.

The requirement was for the site to be aimed at potential developers buying lots to build on, rather than home buyers. Limited to a very strict colour palette, Snapfire worked to create a clean, functional site with limited design overtures to capture the essence of the project - function over form, whilst still providing an aesthetically appealing design.

NZNH&P Show

The New Zealand National Horse & Pony Show is an annual, extravagant affair steeped in tradition.

Their old website was in need of a refresh, and so we worked in with their very tight budget to create something that screamed luxury, decadence and above all success and cameraderie. To keep it current, we updated daily with results during the show. This site is proof that small budgets don't have to mean that design suffers.

Salisbury Council Team Logo

A few years ago, whilst based in South Australia, I was asked to come up with a team logo for Salisbury Council, Adelaide, SA.

They had chosen the team name, 'Alchemy' and 'Going for Gold' was their tag line. They asked me to come up with a logo without going too corny. They loved the pot of gold idea and loved the addition of the rainbow.

Patton Engineering

The booklet had to look good, but also be practical and functional; workmen on the job need to be able to use it to perform maintenance on the Opera House and write notes. It was printed in a spiral bound form with a hard cover and back to prevent too much wear and tear.
