We try and use our skills to help out with community projects if we can. Just please don't ask us to come to a working bee!...

For the last three years we have designed the graphics that are used to promote the Mapua Easter Fair - now the biggest one day event in the whole of New Zealand's South Island. We designed a cast of cartoon characters and landscapes for them to move around in. We designed everything from parking signs to the buckets used to collect gold coin donations...

We designed and produced The Mapua Village Cookbook which was a fundraiser for Mapua School. Working with a spectacularly organised team from the school's PTA, who managed the project, we produced a glossy, high quality book full of tested recipes that is a popular gift for locals to send overseas. Available to order here.

We have helped with the graphics and publicity for the last two Mapua Literary Festivals. This year's theme was "Murder, Mystery, Suspense". With a tiny weeny budget we managed to promote the Festival, produce posters and printed flyers, tickets and decorate Mapua Hall with a Cluedo theme for the Authors' Talk.

We helped the Trust, Battle for the Banded Rail to finish off their logo and provided print and web versions for them to use in their campaign.

Tasman Swim Club wanted an image they could be proud of when they attended national and international swimming events.

We designed the Mapua Community Hall logo and put together a simple Wordpress site for them. We also took the opening event photos and helped facilitate the "Apple Tree" donation mural.
