It’s simple: I love what I do…


I’ve been in the design and printing industry for over 14 years. In 2012, my appetite for design and the birth of my second child prompted me to start my own freelance graphic design business. On top of all that I am also a mother to three children, proud wife, keen home cook and stationery addict.

I’m located in Rotorua, New Zealand. However I am not restricted to creating design locally. In fact, I have many international customers, with an increasing customer base particularly in Australia and United States. We can liaise via email or Skype to complete your project.


Once you’ve approved your quote, I will send over your Welcome Kit, a brief form questionnaire to fill in and a deposit invoice. Once you’ve paid your deposit, we will schedule a time frame for your project. I will then research, create the initial design concepts, and present these concepts to you for feedback. You will always have the opportunity to give me your feedback at every stage of the design process (usually via email). Once everything is completed, approved, and paid for, I will send over your finalised files.


You sure can! You can view my portfolio on my website, Instagram, Facebook or Pinterest sites. If you’d like me to send you some additional examples (such as a look book, postcard, letterhead layouts), please feel free to email me.


All designs require a 50% non-refundable deposit, which can be paid by direct credit to my bank account, or via PayPal (for international customers). All high-resolution files and finished printed products are only released once payment has been received in full. All prices displayed are in New Zealand Dollars.


Definitely! I have relationships with a number of trade printers who can be considerably cheaper than retail printers, so I can get you a great deal on printing. Alternatively, if you prefer to organise printing yourself, I can provide you with the final designs in any print format required.

We’ll discuss early on in the process how you prefer to handle printing and distribution if it applies to your project.


Absolutely! I have a number of clients that I’ve been working with long-term. Please email me so that I can discuss my rates and your requirements further.

“As a small business owner, investing in my logo was a very important, yet daunting, step for me.  I felt nervous as I knew I had to change my logo to truly reflect the message I intended it to convey about my brand, but also because I was still figuring it all out. I knew I wanted a minimal yet elegant design. Having browsed through the work of many graphic designers, I was delighted when I came across Inkeepress. Janelle’s logo for Inkeepress really appealed to me and I knew instantly I wanted to work with her. Her blog is a treasure trove of information, which again confirmed to me that she really does know what she’s doing. From our initial  email and first phone call to discuss the brand, two things really stood out to me about Janelle and her work ethic – she’s a good listener and she really does care about getting the best outcome for you. She took all my feedback after the first iteration and incorporated everything that I had requested seamlessly and beautifully.  Thank you Janelle for your amazing work and attention to detail. You were such a breeze to work with and I am over the moon about my logo and collateral material. It enhances my work and has given me a great foundation to build my brand. I will forever be grateful. I can, and will, highly recommend Inkeepress for all your branding needs.”

“Janelle was amazing to work with for my recent branding refresh. She took my (reasonably vague) ideas and nailed it almost perfectly on the first draft. Janelle was super patient as I went back and forth a few times with different requests and then eventually went back to something very close to what she originally designed. Nothing was too much trouble, and Janelle was always very quick to get back to me. Love the final product!”

I have worked with Janelle on projects for a number of years now and have absolutely loved all of the graphic design work she has done for us. She is extremely talented and a great person to dealwith.

“I have hired Janelle to create well over 20 different graphic design projects for me, including logos, business cards, eBook covers, website banners, social media post graphics and social media page banners. When I need more in the future, I’ll be contacting Janelle first! Her graphic design skills are amazing and I constantly receive compliments from clients on the business branding work she has done for me. Her designs are of an exceptionally high quality and her communication with me has always been professional and timely.
I recommend Janelle from Inkee Press without hesitation if you need any graphic design work done. Thanks so much Janelle – you rock!

Jackie Procter


I’ve worked with Janelle on many occasions for all my businesses. She is most professional, knows her stuff and happy to suggest alternatives if she feels it will better my brand. She has a quick turnaround and very cost effective for the work she does. I wouldn’t hesitate recommending her to other businesses requiring graphic design.

Being asked to bring a dream business to life through branding is quite a responsibility. We did a lot of research into designers before we finally asked Janelle to take our project on. We were determined that – like our product – our branding would enthuse a premium, indulgent and organic look and feel. Using a mood board and just one or two chats by phone – imagine our delight when one of the two initial design ideas Janelle sent us made us squeal with delight! It was perfect. Whilst her creativity and design skills are exceptional it’s her responsiveness and can-do attitude that make her the complete package and an absolute pleasure to deal with.
Since the initial engagement we have commissioned Janelle to design our complete stationery range and regularly request her support for ongoing digital design with our marketing collateral. We’re growing rapidly and couldn’t imagine having anyone but Janelle as the digital design custodian of our brand.

“Janelle has been doing 4 hours a week graphic design work for my businesses for some time now and I consider her to be a vital member of my team. I simply wouldn’t go back to trying to do graphic design any other way. She is efficient, professional and always produces exceptional results. I absolutely love working with her.”

Janelle is an excellent communicator who responds to emails quickly. Her design work is so professional and I am very happy with the lookbook, postcard and flyer that she created for me. I highly recommend her work

I have worked with Janelle on two branding projects and each time she has managed to interpret my waffling design descriptions into beautiful logos that are current and on trend.  She has always been professional in her finish and presentation and understands all that’s required for socail media and the world of graphics even when you don’t!
