For over 25 years DV8 Creative has been seeing things a bit differently. Working with like-minded people, creative in their own fields, we provide a personal and unique design service. Designer Stephen Canning approaches graphic design, branding, web and digital projects with a unique, highly collaborative, customer-focused approach.

Collaboration produces the best quality work – working with people who excel in their fields and work on equal terms, who seek to challenge and be challenged.

The primary collaboration is of course with the client, and by starting with the common goal of strong open communication in this relationship we achieve a high degree of success in bringing their ideas and products to the world.

Design Thinking is a proven toolset to help drive design teams toward decisions based on the experience of the customer. It focuses on their needs and objectives. Working in this process brings fresh insights, often challenging original expectations. So you can expect the unexpected.

Pekapeka Educational Resource
As part of a Citizen Science initiative to help save the Pekakpeka, the native Long-tailed Bat, Community Waitakere commissioned A2 posters for schools and distribution throughout the community.
Primarily for schools, year 5 to 13, this poster is a resource giving a detailed background on the bat, as well as information on what can be done to help track and preserve the species. It had to make a large amount of information readable and engaging on different levels, for a broad readership, as well as making the process of gathering data from home approachable and accessible.

The magnificently detailed hand-painted illustrations by Erin Forsyth are the key to this poster.

Client: Community Waitakere
