Documents by Design is a graphic and web design studio owned by Catherine Watson. I'm usually based in Auckland but can quite often be found hiding out in our “barn” at Horopito, a small settlement on the side of Mt Ruapehu.  

My wealth of experience was gained from working for design agencies and printers in both New Zealand and London with a range of clients from cottage industries to large international corporates including HSBC and Standard & Poors. I was trained by some very knowledgeable specialists with exacting standards in the print industry and as a result, have extensive knowledge and my standards are high.

Nowadays I specialise in supporting small and medium-sized businesses and start-ups to market themselves in the best possible way, often on a limited budget. Developing a great designer-client relationship I can devise and implement the best design-print-digital-web solutions for your business.

When not out to make the visual world a better place one design at a time, I can be found taking off on an impulsive walk, experimenting in the kitchen, at the gym or supporting my daughters at a gymnastics competition.

I have a small team of designers, photographers and copywriters who work alongside me and we are always on the lookout for interesting projects and exciting clients to work with so do get in touch to see what magic we can work for your business.
