Glue Creative is a design agency with a passion for building lasting connections. That means, we do jobs right the first time, and make sure things go the distance. We make sure our work resonates deeply with our clients – and their audiences.
Whether you’re a start up business looking for a new identity, or a communications manager looking for someone to pickup your inhouse overflow, we provide branding, strategy, design & online services to develop & grow your brand.

The services we offer


Great branding presents your story to the world. And it is a lasting story. It stands up and shouts loud, ‘this is me, this is what I stand for’. It connects with those you want to connect with.

We work with clients from many different industries, but one thing that stays the same is our individualised approach to crafting unique visual identities. We don’t follow latest trends (unless your company is a geometric organisation selling watercolour prints & gold foil posters!!) but we do make sure your brand is modern & strong, and will stand the test of time.

Every brand in our portfolio has its own custom identity filtered through our passion for high quality design. At Glue, we develop and define a style that will engage and connect with your customers and last a long time. From fonts to imagery, icons to copy style, your brand is the face you present to the world, and it makes sense to spend time getting it right from start.
Brand development is our passion, and we work hard to make it awesome!


We understand that businesses are busy & while you do want to drive your sales, you just don’t have the time, resources or the know-how to do so.

Often the array of marketing channels out there can be confusing. We can help develop your print & online channels and streamline your approach so you’re getting the best bang for your buck. We aim to build your brand a solid presence in the marketplace – not just now, but in the future too.

Knowing who your customers are and where you can most easily talk to them, enables you to engage and connect with them more directly. Once you’re engaging with them, we focus on turning that activity into sales and developing long term relationships.


The world we live in today is driven by visual interpretation. Customer engagement through the use of colour, shape, typography & angles is key, and often it’s more about the clear space, than the filled space. There is an art to crafting the detail and we have years of experience in doing so.

From poster & brochure design, through to large annual reports, it’s important that your messaging is strong & clear. We craft bespoke pieces, and we churn out larger communication jobs – it’s all about setting the intention at the start and ensuring each piece speaks directly to it’s audience and connects with them.


Your website is the heart & soul of your online world. User friendly, mobile responsive sites are what we do best. We help build your online brand from the ground up, starting with defining who your customers are, and defining what you want them to do. We focus on ensuring your site looks fantastic, attracts the right customers, generates leads & converts sales.

Email marketing, social media development & online advertising are just some of the channels that can help support & grow your online sales outcomes. It can sometimes be daunting to tackle it head on – we can help clarify & define both short & long term goals to get you on track, or fast track your current presence to make the connections you want to make.

“Kiriana has great communication skills and a solid understanding of our design needs.
She has patience with complicated, lengthy projects, meets deadlines and always delivering work of a high standard.”

Sara MatchettTourism Waitaki

“Glue Creative have worked with us for around 8 years initially doing my branding for Kiwi Kai. I was so impressed with the professional work that we have come back again for a total rebrand of Kiwi Kai and 2 other new brands. Everything has been done via the web and the outcome was even more amazing and brilliant. Kiriana took my muddled brief and turned it into fantastic concepts, which I am so proud of today.
We get outstanding feedback on all 3 brands. Glue worked within our budget, timeline and tikanga Maori.”

“Glue are fantastic to work with and deliver a very high standard in a very efficient manner. Their responsiveness on a number of last minute jobs has been a lifesaver for us on many occasions.
The feedback from our customers following our rebrand has been excellent with many commenting it’s one of the best rebrands they have seen. We would highly recommend Glue for any branding and design projects.”

Greg WebsterTopflite

“We have a wonderful relationship with Glue Creative. Kiriana has always been timely with her work and the quality is outstanding.
We engaged Glue for a brand identity upgrade. This was followed by a new website development, with ongoing maintenance and improvements.
Kiriana is only an email away and the support is readily available. She was referred to us by another client, and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend Glue Creative to any business. ”
