A word from the lady who started it all...

Zoe Sizemore, Founder + Director

I want to let you in on a little secret. I LOVE small businesses. So much so, that I built my career - and eventually my whole business - around working with small business owners like you. I just get such a kick out of sharing my branding knowledge, and watching it transform a business into a full-blown brand.


With two artists for parents, I was always bound to grow up to be the creative type. And sure enough, I found myself following my passion for illustration - graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Elam School of Fine Art ( with a Graphic design major).


My obsession with branding started when I cut my teeth working in sign-writing, then grew as I honed my chops as a designer at a boutique Rotorua-based agency. Then as a senior designer at Locus Research a Product Development company, I became totally besotted with the entire branding process - from concept and development, right through to execution and launch.


After baby number one made his debut, I broke out on my own to build a business that would work with my family - and Case in Point Design Studio was born. 


Since starting out, we’ve created hundreds of logo designs, a plethora of website designs, gorgeous illustrations, and built some truly beautiful brands. 


And along the way, we’ve met some absolutely amazing like-minded business owners.

Are you keen to be the next one?
