Testimonials

Lisa’s work is always completed to a very high standard

Lisa has completed considerable work for Bluelab since 2004 and continues to do work when required.

Lisa ‘listens’ to you as a client and I believe this is because she is acutely aware of the importance of brand consistency. This is not a trait you find often.

Lisa has always ensured we maximise every opportunity to reach the customer and seeks to ‘understand’ our customers needs to ensure she can produce materials for our brand that will delight our customers. Her work is always completed to a very high standard and I would highly recommend her for any marketing requirements you may have.

Chris Winslade, VP Sales and Marketing, Bluelab

Lisa goes over and above expectations

Lisa goes over and above expectations on tasks and projects assigned to her, and is a very in-depth and precise worker.

Our brand restructure was among the many tasks and projects Lisa completed for Cubro. She carried this out efficiently and effectively.

Lisa showed 100% loyalty to the company and team/staff.

Jacob Beetham, Marketing Department, Cubro

At all times Lisa approached her work with dedication and commitment

Lisa worked alongside our marketing team in the production of our brand and marketing material on a contract basis for 18 months, starting out part time and eventually on a full time basis.

Some of the projects and tasks she worked on include:

  • Planned and project managed the implementation of the Cubro rebrand strategy, including working with the marketing department to roll out the new brand across the organisation.
  • Planned and project managed the production and implementation of the Cubro corporate video.
  • Carried out the graphic design requirements for our brand and marketing material, which ranges from stationery, through to multipage documents, new product brand creation, brochures, proposals, newsletters, catalogues, electronic newsletters, packaging and promotional material.
  • Worked alongside the marketing team to update and refresh our annual Road Show display material.
  • Provided help with copywriting and planning content for our marketing and promotional material, proposals and products.
  • Managed the printing and other suppliers, including liaising with international suppliers.
  • Managed three additional contractors, including another graphic designer, a web developer and HTML coder.
  • Planned and project managed the design and frontend development of a new ecommerce website.
  • Managed the production, and at times coded our electronic newsletter templates.

We initially took Lisa on to provide graphic design services, but soon found out she had experience in many other areas that greatly assisted with the development and production of our marketing material.

Lisa fitted in and worked well with the rest of the marketing team, and at all times approached her work with dedication and commitment to ensure a high standard. Lisa was an integral part of the team in bringing the Cubro brand up to the current standard it is today.

Lisa was able to quickly get the idea of what we are about as a company.

Lisa is a top woman. I used Lisa’s expert services to create a brand for our pharmacy. I found that she was able to quickly get the idea of what we are about and what we stand for as a company. Lisa developed a fresh look for us which the staff and public all appreciated.

I would recommend her talents to anyone needing her help & wellcome clients to phone me for a verbal reference.

As a result of Lisa’s involvement the company took on a completely revamped and more up to date profile.

I was at a point where some marketing assistance was required. I owned an Engineering business or over 20 years and I was looking for assistance to effectively promote and sell my business.

I was introduced to Lisa Coulson, owner of Slice Creative design and marketing, a specialist in media advertising.

Lisa was able to quickly demonstrate solutions to improve branding along with some innovative uses of the company database. She redesigned the company logo and colour scheme, resulting in new public awareness. Her work was completed in a timely and cost effective manner.

As a result of Lisa’s involvement the company took on a completely revamped and more up to date profile. I am confident the re-branding substantially contributed towards completing the sale of my business.

Tim Houstoun, former director of Tauranga Diesel

For me Lisa provided the total package – great creativity together with extensive knowledge and experience of marketing strategies. She has been absolutely invaluable to me in setting up my new business. She created a number marketing tools for me including logo, business card, signage and a web page.

I have total confidence in Lisa. I have found her to be creative, knowledgeable and very approachable. I highly recommend her.

Lisa listened to my non-design speak and turned it into a much admired and successful brand.

Lisa Coulson is an interpreter-magician. She listened to my non-design speak, interpreted it, and like a magician turned it into a much admired and successful brand. It was clear to me that Lisa wanted me to get what I wanted, gently nudging me in the right direction, offering me the benefit of her knowledge and experience to achieve a professional result.

She used her rare gift of asking the ‘right’ questions to clarify my thinking every step of the way. The result was more clarity for me and a successful brand and artwork for my business.

Thank you Lisa, I feel like I have not only received the benefit of your amazing creative ability, but also the benefit of a personal business coach.

Bev Hodges, Entertrain

We could tell we were in the hands of a professional…

Thank you Lisa for breathing new life into our tired website and company branding!

From our first contact with Lisa when we decided our website and company branding needed upgrading we could tell we were in the hands of a professional who wanted to ensure we got the best result with as little fuss as possible.  She had great suggestions along the way to ensure consistency of branding along with a more modern image, both of which had previously been lacking.  The people she introduced us to such as photographers, web coders and printers were also talented and professional.  Throughout the process, each new decision we had to make was made easier by Lisa providing recommendations as well as a range of options to consider.

Through discussions with Lisa it was clear that there was a real depth of knowledge of current trends and techniques for capturing audience attention.

We are very happy with our new website and company branding.  We have also been impressed by her regular contact to give further suggestions on how it can be used more effectively as a marketing tool for our business and also providing advice on advertising initiatives we explore.

I have no hesitation in recommending Lisa for help in advertising, branding and web design.

I have been hugely impressed with the quality and professionalism with which these were produced and have received many complements from customers about the attractiveness of the finished product.

Lisa has also spent an enormous amount of time developing my new website, which has been greatly successful and has attracted a lot of custom for my business. I would highly recommend Lisa to anyone if they are interested in working with a professional company which produces work of such exceptional quality.
