A long, long time ago (in 2015) lived two great kingdoms of Taupo: Good Graphic Design and The Business Studio. They coexisted peacefully together sharing clients, territories, ideals and baked goods until, one day, they had a revelation.
They united under one flag to be stronger, wiser and better serve the people. This new kingdom is a place of guidance for brands where epic ideas are shared and explored, and best of all where stories are told. Only one name truly serves the purpose and lives up to the legacy these two Kingdoms have created — Legend.
Legend is an army of #fabulous people who specialise in design, branding, marketing, web development, insights, loyalty, PR, copywriting, and project management. Our never-ending quest is to tell your story, guide you to epicness and make you and your business a complete legend.
Meet the team
director / lion tamer
Our leading legend and an Ironman, she’s happy to be on a paddleboard or in the boardroom. Sarah’s our marketing and brand expert, a strategic planner and a person who helps grow small businesses and new ideas into their own legends.
p.r. + content specialist / town crier
Our resident red head, Sam's expertise lie in copywriting, PR, and the ever so difficult task of balancing her love for hiking and cupcakes. While her KeepCup may be the tiniest thing we've ever seen, her writing packs a real punch.
account manager / unicorn trainer
#Intrepidwomen - Anne is a tight wearing yoga fanatic who wrestles daily with CMS systems to make your website beautiful and functional. She’s great at looking after you and your business. She bikes distances others drive (almost as fast!) and everything is done with a smile and laughter.
graphic designer / spell caster
Pen-ny is definitely mightier than the sword. She’s our legendary designer/wordsmith/mastermind – and dang is she good! Sometimes we wonder where she gets all her epic ideas, maybe there’s something in the coffee.
graphic designer / knight rider
When she's not watching dirty dancing on repeat, Rachel is designing digital masterpieces. Our local Leo loves long walks to the chocolate aisle, chocolate, mountain biking, camping, and eating chocolate while camping (did we mention she loves chocolate?).
graphic designer / star gazer
Hailing from Rotorua, Chelsea brings with her a wealth of experience, crazy design skills and a super-fun attitude. Creating brands that stand the test of time is what gets her up in the morning. That and coffee :)
graphic designer / visual swashbuckler
Adi’s been in the industry for over eight years now with a love of UI/UX, print and all things future focused! She’s taught web, UI, UX, digital, print, art history, and typography for 4 years and likes to work with every facet of design. Working with a range of clients all over the globe, Adi loves working collaboratively for the best results possible.
web specialist / code sorcerer
Bjarne hails from Hamilton where he’s worked as a web developer since 2013. He's completed a Bachelor of Electronic Commerce at Waikato University with - lucky for us - a computer science major. He's a clever cookie who loves modern web technologies and knows WordPress inside and out.
Cate is the number cruncher, office manager, and bill payer. With her wide range of experience, from hospitality to business ownership, she brings a huge wealth of knowledge to Legend - which we constantly tap into. Her thumbs are also super green and she keeps us well-fed with a constant supply of fresh fruit and veggies from her garden.
