Liv Wimsett is a graphic designer based in Auckland.
After graduating from Auckland University of Technology with a Bachelor of Design majoring in Graphic Design, her career began in magazine publishing where she directed the design for New Zealand’s most iconic women’s titles. Eventually realising her entrepreneurial spirit, Liv went out on her own, working for various respected brands and bringing their aspirations and visions to life.
Liv’s philosophy is a collaborative one and as she continues to work with like-minded brands, she aspires to join forces with even more creatives who appreciate her whimsical aesthetic. She has an affinity and talent for collages, digital and print layouts, branding, product development, and art direction. Since Own Design was launched Liv’s work has been sought-after by both big and small businesses here in New Zealand, and around the world (thank you internet).
Never caught without a pen, always down for a platter-style lunch, and often caught daydreaming about sailing the world, Liv’s unique custom creations reflect her carefree temperament and inimitable creative outlook.

What clients have to say
Liv was recommended to me by colleagues in the media industry as a passionate designer, which was made clear as soon as we started working together. After reviewing my requirements, Liv sent through beautifully presented moodboards and ideas for us to decide on the aesthetic of my branding, which was so hard to choose as I loved all of the options she provided. Liv has such an intrinsic eye for detail, such patience for any queries I had and was always so willing to offer her advice on other parts of my business too. Liv definitely sets the bar for graphic design in NZ and I wouldn’t work with anyone else. Amanda McConchie, Founder, The Business Of Influence PR.
Liv has an eye for beauty; her design style is feminine, classic and timeless. She has a fantastic eye for detail, is a genuine creative thinker and has a brilliant ability to follow a brief - and deliver. I could not have launched my brand without her unique expertise.

Liv made the process of creating a new product label effortless. She created a number of designs for us to select from and worked hard to ensure the end design captured the look we were going for. The final product was the perfect fit for our brand. Liv is a true professional with endless ideas, creativity and has the ability to get the job done.
