Canyon Creative

Canyon Creative is a multi-disciplinary design studio based in Kaikoura, New Zealand. We specialise in branding, graphic design and signwriting.

We take our name from the Kaikoura Canyon, a unique, mysterious and diverse natural environment 1000 metres below sea level.

Our motto is 'depth by design', we like to add a little something to be discovered under the surface of our work.

 

 

FLOWER

POWER

It’s one of those flowery things that you see on university degree certificates.

More important than a piece of paper, design school taught us how to think and problem solve creatively.

We have a bachelor of design, with a flower on top, which means we are qualified.

 

TREE

TWO ONE

This is the old Kanuka Tree outside our Studio in Kaikoura. It’s a daily reminder that nature is hanging on by a limb.

We make eco material choices in our design and manufacturing practice wherever possible.

Kaikoura is a Green Globe Certified Community, it’s something we are proud of.

 

BLACK

RULES

Black is one of our favourite colours. It is the most common colour in books and you can do a lot with it as a designer. 

MOUSE

OR HAMMER

We are equally at home with a mouse or a hammer in hand. Somewhere in-between the design studio and the sign workshop feels about right.

That’s why we offer signwriting alongside design as a service in our local area. 

Hand’s on experience with manufacturing makes us better designers. It’s a win win.

 

SWEET

HOME

It’s the Kaikoura Peninsula off the East Coast of the South Island of New Zealand.

It’s the place we call home.

TRAVELS

We work all over. 

Design travels beautifully which means we can work with anyone from anywhere. 

And we do.

We are happy to jump in the car or on a plane and come to see you, and we encourage you to do the same.

Come breathe some fresh air.

COFFEE

FIRST

Coffee is a big part of our studio culture. Come visit us and we’ll make you one (or two!).

It’s an occupational hazard of working with a few coffee companies over the years.

Check out our portfolio for details.

 

WILD

LIFE

Kaikoura is rugged and wild and that’s why we are here. 

Sandwiched between the mountains and the sea, there is no shortage of inspiration to fuel the creative mind.

 

DEPTH

BY DESIGN

line-01.png

Come on, we had to put a whale in there right? We live in Kaikoura after all.

It’s more where this guy is heading that interests us, 1000m under the surface of the Ocean to the Kaikoura Canyon - a mysterious and diverse natural environment unlike anywhere else on earth.

Our motto is depth by design, we like to add a little something to be discovered under the surface of our work.

 

RANDOM

ELEMENTS

A Moa for good measure?

Design is an intuitive business, sometimes it simply works because it works.

Watch out for random elements!
