GRAPHIC DESIGNERS, WEBSITE DESIGNERS AND CREATIVE DIRECTORS

I'm looking for an experienced Graphic Designer to take care of the amazing branding, packaging and Rocketspark website design clients I've amassed over 20+ years of self employment.

Based in Auckland, I've a huge network of valuable clients all over NZ as well as a couple in Australia. I've worked really hard for my entire working adulthood to build this active network of clients who also actively refer me to their friends and colleagues.

No two clients or projects are the same, with the work I offer ranging from logo & brand design, to stationery & graphic design, to print & packaging design and website design using the epic, NZ-owned website hosting company, Rocketspark.

If you don't know much about Rocketspark or website design, I'm happy to offer introductions to the team and to get you up to speed with managing the  40+ Rocketspark websites that you'd inherit as part of this purchase, along with the commission that comes with them.

SO WHY AM I SELLING?

Firstly, it has not been an easy thing for me to decide to sell my business. It's been the one constant thing in my life from the age of 22 to now... it's seen me through moving cities, travelling & working overseas and having children... in many ways it's been my one true love. The thing that’s always had my back and been at my side. It’s literally been my life's work. 

However, I always felt I'd not yet experienced the "corporate creative" life and the hustle, collaboration, the highs (and the lows) involved. That opportunity was presented to me last year - somewhat unexpectedly - and I've really enjoyed seeing the skills I’ve amassed as a business owner-operator, translate into full-time employment managing a creative marketing team for a well-known, nationwide retailer over the past 9 months… While also continuing to run my business "on the side".

Safe to say, I’m at risk of burnout and one of these things now simply has to go so that I can get back to enjoying time with my teenagers before they fly the coup completely, and having that work-life balance that I protected so fiercely for all those years as a working mum.
