Zubi: Sensational Food Labelling

Business cards · Website · Logo design

Zubi asked me to rethink their public-facing website which is seen when new visitors land on

Through this redesign it quickly became apparent that their current logo needed to be reviewed and I offered to rebrand Zubi, too.

Our working relationship has produced new branding, a brand new public-facing website, and new business cards for the team.

Southampton Snapchat Geofilter


According to Snapchat, "Geofilters are special overlays for Snaps that can only be accessed in certain locations".

When I first moved to Southampton I realised that Snapchat wasn't offering any geofilters for the area which would personalise snaps I took from within Southampton city.

So naturally, I decided to make one! It took a couple of months to be released but it's now used by almost all of my local friends and even the official Saints FC Snapchat account.

Smartshares Ltd, division of NZX

Website · Branding

I was contacted by the manager of operations and compliance at Smartshares to produce two new fully responsive websites with their new branding.

I worked remotely on this project, only meeting the team towards the end of the project at their Auckland offices.

Unfortunately the websites have been redesigned since this project, but the project was enjoyed and received high praise from the Smartshares team.

The Bike On New Zealand Charitable Trust

Business cards · Website · Logo design

I worked closely with the founder of Bike On to simplify their website, adding responsive design and ensuring all content was easy to follow, from all devices.

They needed a list of press links which is clear and navigable, and they need a clearly laid out gallery to show off all the schools they've worked with.

Tied with their powerful Bikes in Schools page slash mega-document, they can now send people to their site trusting every question will be answered.

The work done by Max on our website has been outstanding. His technical and visual expertise ensured we quickly got the web presence we needed and this has been confirmed by the consistently positive feedback from our target audience.

Toolkit Websites

Website · Landing pages · Email campaigns

Toolkit hired me after initially contracting me for some landing page work while I was freelancing – shortly after I moved to the UK.

I was hired as Digital Marketing Designer working for 10 months leading design on their niche marketing campaign. In this time I designed and built more than 96 landing pages, and hundreds of ads for Google, Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn.

The landing pages were created to supply Toolkit with their own, organic leads and continue to do so.

McFoodies are a New Zealand based collective of food technologists that needed a refreshed online presence and brand.

I designed their new reponsive website, with improved local SEO and load times, and designed their new logo and implementation.

Now visitors can cleary see what McFoodies offers and how they can get in touch when they're ready to engage, and the McFoodies brand is more prominent.
