CASE STUDY 1
The client:

France - Senteurs de Vie - Northland

The problem:

France knew that her Essential Oils and Massage Therapy business needed a fresh new site that would draw in her customers, and get them racing to click “buy now.” But she didn’t have a clue where to start.

 

The solution:

CIP Design Studio worked closely with France to create a beautiful and engaging website design, guiding her through a seamless process from start to finish. During our initial chats, we realised it was important for France to be able to easily update the site herself. So we built a simple and elegant template, with back-end usability in mind. 

 

The outcome:

Feedback from France’s customers has been overwhelmingly positive - and the new site even led to her business’s first ever online order.

“I chose to work with CIP Design because of your love of environment, nature, your professionalism and your energy. I trusted you, and you did it!” - France

CASE STUDY 2
The client:

Tanya - The Book Playbox - Northland

The problem:

The Book Playbox is a beautiful subscription box, designed just for children. Owner and curator, Tanya, needed a new brand logo and packaging design that would appeal to both parents and kids. As a creative person, she’d had a go herself, but it just wasn’t clicking. So Tanya came to us looking for something unique and playful that would tie all her ideas together, and bring her vision for the brand to life.

The solution:

CIP Design dove deep into Tanya’s vision, and created a beautiful brand identity - including a logo design, box design, versatile brand patterns, and more. With hand-drawn shapes that captured the “read, create, play” idea behind The Book Playbox, the design gave the brand a cohesive look and feel that brought the business’s concept to life.

 

The outcome:

The result was a brand identity that Tanya believes has had a genuine and positive effect on her business. A brand identity she’s not only confident in, but is proud to share with the world.

 

Don’t just take our word for it...

“I found the process of working with Zoe and CIP Design easy. We collaborated well together sharing our ideas, and were able to create a brand that I am completely happy with. I was able to explain what I wanted and then Zoe created her branding magic!” - Tanya

CASE STUDY 3
The client:

Angelena - Flow - Mt Maunganui

The problem:

Angelena is a Mount Maunganui-based coach, writer, and facilitator. She knew that a strong brand that reflected her personality would help her stand out in the crowded world of coaching. But she was having trouble putting what she wanted into words.

The solution:

We worked in close collaboration with Angelena, coaching her through the design process and creating a broader marketing strategy that went beyond her brand, and to the very heart of why she does what she does. After building those foundations, the rest fell into place - and we delivered the professional brand with a fun twist that Angelena had been looking for.

 

The outcome:

What started as a rebranding project soon grew into an ongoing partnership, with CIP Design creating Angelena’s Facebook ads, flyers, notebooks, diagrams, posters, book covers, and more. Most importantly, Angelena’s business has grown from a small customer base to hundreds each year - which has led to speaking and teaching opportunities, and a highly engaged social media following.

 

Don’t just take our word for it...

“I’ve been way more than just satisfied with CIP Design’s work. I’ve been inspired. I look at my branding and it makes me LOVE my business. The cohesive imagery and colours and font really do make me smile. Like a beautiful bunch of roses on my table, it fills me.” - Angelena

CASE STUDY 4
The client:

CJ - Moksha Yoga - Papamoa

The problem:

CJ’s business was up and running, but without a clear idea of how it should be presented to the world, it felt a little like it was drifting. At first CJ thought she needed a logo. But after sitting down with CIP Design, she soon realised it was about digging deeper - identifying exactly what Moksha Yoga meant to her, and who it was as a brand.

The solution:

We worked with CJ to get crystal clear on who Moksha is as a brand. Its philosophy, its values, and how it should be perceived. From there, we developed a brand identity that truly captured both Moksha and CJ’s spirit - along with the tools needed to bring that identity to life consistently across the board.

 

The outcome:

After launching the new Moksha Yoga brand, CJ’s classes multiplied from 2 a week to 10 - growing from about 20 attendees a week, to a massive 120. As a result, she’s seen both her revenue and her social media engagement skyrocket.

 

Don’t just take our word for it...

“I’ve ended up with a brand that totally reflects me and my business. It has meaning and soul and I'm super proud of it. It gives me confidence to promote Moksha in all areas, knowing that my brand is professional and true to my style.” - CJ

CASE STUDY 5
The client:

Nicole - Etena & Annie - Hawaii

The problem:

When Nicole started her corporate governance business, Etena & Annie, she realised she needed a visual identity that truly reflected the work the business was trying to achieve. A look that was personal, but also sophisticated and undoubtedly professional - and that represented both the present and future of the business. 

The solution:

Nicole came to CIP design for help. After a few in-depth chats, we got down to the nitty gritty of what Etena & Annie did and didn’t want to portray - and how to bring that to life visually. We developed a range of logos, fonts, layouts and colour palettes, landing on a visual identity that captured the balance between personal and professional that Nicole had been hoping for.

 

The outcome:

For Nicole, the outcome has been about more than business results. It’s about her brand’s visual identity acting as a constant reminder of the business’s vision, and the future it’s trying to create. Oh, and the overwhelming amount of positive feedback hasn’t hurt, either.

 

Don’t just take our word for it...

“CIP Design’s work is outstanding. Transparent, personal, and completely professional. It isn't cardboard cutout - it truly reflects a uniqueness and authenticity. And as a consumer, that’s the type of company I want to do business with. That’s why we keep coming back.” - Nicole

CASE STUDY 6
The client:

Jodi - Burn Fitness - Papamoa

The problem:

Jodi knew she wanted the Burn Fitness Papamoa brand to be relatable, energetic, and something her customers could really identify with. She just needed the right problem-solver on board to help her make it happen.

The solution:

Jodi approached CIP Design, and together we built the Burn Fitness brand that Jodi had always had in mind. We created a vibrant, fresh, and modern identity that immediately captured Jodi and Burn Fitness’s energy, and had it popping off the page.

 

The outcome:

The result was a bright and unmissable brand, that made Burn Fitness stand out in a crowded market. And Jodi’s favourite outcome? One BIG job taken off her busy hands.

 

Don’t just take our word for it...

“I love it! CIP Design was able to take my words and aspirations for my business and put it into a great brand. Zoe really listened, she got excited with me, and presented some great work.” - Jodi

CASE STUDY 7
The client:

Gemma - Chroma Signage Co.

The problem:

As a one-woman-business-band, Gemma was big on ideas but short on time. She wanted to refresh the DIY branding she started her business with, to reflect the professional business it’s grown to today. Gemma wanted an identity that could be rolled across the whole business, and that she could be proud to show off to her clients.

The solution:

CIP design jumped on board, and created a whole new brand identity for Chroma Signage Co. - as well as a slick new website. We took the brand all the way from outdated-90s to ultra-modern. Creating the professional and clean vibe Gemma had been looking for.

 

The outcome:

Gemma feels her business has benefited hugely from having a fresh new look, logo, and especially website. Chroma’s site is usually a customers’ first interaction with the business, and making that first impression fabulous has proven invaluable.

 

Don’t just take our word for it...

“I call CIP the graphic design A-team - the term ‘creative genius’ springs to mind! They nailed the brief, and now I put my logo on absolutely everything - seriously, even my kids, haha. So happy!” - Gemma
