Rolls: Designer | Time Frame: 7 months | Tools: Various 


From August 2016 - January 2017 I was the in-house designer at the Wellington-based production/design company StoryBox. During my time there I worked closely with the small team on a wide variety of projects:

  • Pre-Vis work: Creating renders and interactive visualizations of work we pitched to clients.

  • Graphic and Interaction Design: Created assets, page layouts and interactive content for various projects.

  • Pitch Prep: Created many different pitch packages/presentations for various clients and funding bodies.

These projects ranged from external client work to full on in-house art/theatre projects. We worked with clients like Safe Kids Aotearoa, New Zealand Rugby Union, Wellington Water and NZ Transport Agency, With one of the projects getting nominated in the 2017 Best Design Awards, in the spacial design category. During my time at story box I gained invaluable experience in communication and collaborative design.


These are just some of the projects i worked on during my time at StoryBox:

Water Puzzle

The water puzzle was a small scale interactive installation commissioned by Wellington Water to help bring attention to the places people can be wasting water in there home. Story Box in collaboration with Clemengers BBDO designed and built two 3D rotation puzzle that was located around Wellington for eight weeks during the summer of 2016-2017.

On this project I created various 3D renders of the potential designs, mocking up layouts for the puzzle and revising the pitch documents that we presented to the client.

Noise Patrol

For the 2017 Wellington Sevens, the NZRU Approached StoryBox to come up with and run several activation’s to help promote the 2017 Wellington Sevens using their slogan of "Bring the Noise". The concept was to create a much noise as possible, so we designed and built large handheld megaphones to scatter around Wellington creating a competition to see who could generate the most noise.

On this project, I help design the megaphones and create the custom vinyl wrap to go over them.
