Lemonface design were an incredible organisation to deal with. Responsive, articulate, organised. Rearrangements and quick changes were never a problem at all, also, wonderfully fantastic with the advice and ongoing support, especially of my outcomes, through social media and signage from small residential signs to very large billboards which were balanced and effective, dare I say quite stunning! Cannot wait to utilise their expertise and work with them again in the future.

In fact we’re in residence with them now in our very own shared workspace; The Other Side - A collaborative creative space for dreamers and doers in Horowhenua.

There’s no better time than now to get your ducks in a row

Contrary to popular belief auditing your brand can be swift, painless, easy, and wait for it…enjoyable. Brand audits can be wholesale belt and braces or a quick state of the nation overview.
