While a designers work speaks for itself, clients are the best source to find out how we are to collaborate with. Here are some words from my clients: 
Project Manager - Māori and Pasifika Trades Training
"I'd seen Tarin's work before. I liked her style and how she could communicate complex messages simply. We contracted her to do the same for us - develop our brand and speak easily to our diverse stakeholders. What Tarin brought to the conversation enhanced our whole project, both the visible and behind the scenes. Tarin is a smart thinker and empathetic communicator who added significant value."
Karyn Tattersfield
Owner - Social Effect
"Tarin can take an any abstract brief and develop a concept that totally nails it, then applies it with finesse. With Tarin, I get all the skills you’d expect from an advertising agency in a single person delivering personalised and professional service.  The results produced by Plush Creative are consistently excellent and are always well thought out, and most importantly always help me to achieve my communication objectives.
Taiohi Whai Oranga
Tarin took real ownership of the Taiohi Whai Oranga Investment Plan, developed for the (then) ASB Community Trust.  Her ideas and execution of them delivered a vibrant, youthful and professional document – the perfect context for the ideas we wanted to showcase. As well as creating a visually stunning document, its contents inspired confidence and achieved the funding objectives."
aut internz communications team
Auckland University of Technology
"We have been lucky to have Tarin on our team as a designer and strategist as we developed a new approach to transitioning AUT students into careers through global and New Zealand internships. We required a broad range of communication assets, including a website, print collateral, presentation material, social media devices and motion graphics. Tarin’s strategic thinking, professional execution and responsiveness to our needs as the ‘start-up’ programme grew and developed has had huge implications on our success." 
Dave Nicholas
Former General Manager of Coopers Creek Vineyards
(currently Marketing Director for Antipodes Water Company)
"Plush Creative worked on a set of very significant design projects for Coopers Creek over the last three years. The most important has been a complete brand renovation, starting with brand architecture and running through to an impressive packaging renovation. The corporate logo and key brand messages were refreshed and re-presented; photography, stationery and point of sale material created and distributed to our local and export markets.

The response has been outstanding, with immediate customer approval and improved trading that can be directly attributed to the new brand presentation.

Tarin has also driven our social media platforms, providing effective insight and consistent support. She has lifted the standard of our brand wardrobe hugely through creative and thoughtful design work, always considering the important blend of brand and commercial objectives. Tarin is a superb communicator and a pleasure to work with on both the straightforward and the challenging projects."
Angela Johansson
Former Marketing Director at Kensington Swan Lawyers
"I worked with Tarin as a Creative Director for in excess of eight years, both in my role as Communications Manager at OfficeMax, and as Marketing Director at Kensington Swan Lawyers. 
Kensington Swan used Plush Creative for brand strategy, design, copywriting, art direction, and print management. Over the years Plush Creative has helped Kensington Swan evolve the brand from a mid-tier brand to that of a premier brand. Tarin’s advice has significantly improved both the market facing collateral and imagery, and the internal brand. 
Tarin is very quick to pick up new industries and is particularly skilled in working with B2B brands. She personally provides me with strategic advice and serves as a sound bouncing-board which I can call upon regularly. To ensure our projects are managed well Tarin runs a ‘work in progress’ sheet which helps us to manage the week’s workflow and priorities. 
Tarin has become an extension of our business. She adds value by proactively coming up with ideas to grow business and the energy and enthusiasm she has for our marketing team, and Kensington Swan as a firm." 
Nikki Langford
Marketing and Communications Manager at Bell Gully
"Tarin is very good in a loud, energetic team environment where everyone's idea is the best one - she is the calming voice of reason and her ideas, concepts and designs are always well-thought out and credible. Tarin (although an external provider) enjoys understanding your business goals and what you are trying to achieve."
Dean O'Cass
CEO Oceanbridge Shipping
"Oceanbridge Shipping is a privately owned freight company and of one of the leading consolidators of cargo to and from New Zealand. We have been with Plush Creative for several years now and all of our branding, marketing material, tender presentations and the overall presentation of the company is the better for it.
Tarin has gotten to know how we like to be portrayed in the market and to our customers. All of her work is very professional and has gone a long way to ‘freshening’ our brand. Oceanbridge have recommended Plush to other companies and would have no hesitation in recommending Tarin and her work."
