Steph Head Shot Edit.jpg

An experienced multidisciplinary Designer and Illustrator, Steph has more than seven years of experience elevating and nurturing brands through both thoughtful and elegant idea-driven concepts. Her passion for doing so has seen her working at some of Wellington's most innovative agencies where she's brought her fresh ideas, craft and deep understanding of contemporary branding, print, digital design and illustration to a diverse range of businesses and organisations across the country.

 

Steph compliments her design and branding knowledge with a steady illustration hand, running a small business called Essoh, where she crafts elegant and detailed illustrated prints and products that enrich experiences and spaces.

 

Recently, Steph has established a boutique creative branding studio of her own called Good Company, where she continues to build and nurture beautiful and thoughtful identities that connect and inspire. On a mission to up-hold the value of good design, combined with good business practice and principles, Good Company partners with motivated brands and visionary leaders on a mission to build a healthier and happier world.
