I have been using zest for my online businesses for the past 6 years. Since day one, when I had no idea about how to make a website or set up a business, the team at zest have gone above and beyond to help me out. I can’t thank them enough. Without the professionalism and the creativity of zest, my businesses would not be as successful as they are now.

My experience with the zest team has far exceeded my expectations. The high quality of the product they delivered, the short timeframe it was done and the personal, quick and professional service have all been exemplary. I cannot recommend zest highly enough for logo, website and letterhead design.

Having zest as a major supporter of my not-for-profit charity, SPEAK UP! Stay ChatTY, has been a huge positive in helping us achieve the professionalism we were after. The quality of our website that they designed is excellent, and just what we were after. Great service and superb workmanship are all that we could have asked for.

In 2010 we took over Tasmanian Hotel & Catering Supplies, taking on an immediate rebrand and expansion of the business statewide. zest have been fantastic since day one, helping with all of our marketing needs, including logo redesign, signage designs, stationery designs and printing, catalogue production, all our daily advertising, and the development of our e-commerce website. The results from the hard work zest put into our advertising and marketing continues to help us grow our business.
zest produced a unique website design that suits our brand perfectly - clean, detailed, and really very easy for us to manage page content internally moving forward.
Our new website is much easier to manage and does a more effective job of showcasing our many projects across our service categories. The fresh design is in-line with all our recent brand image changes, and the team at zest continue to manage our marketing beautifully.
Just over two years ago I approached Sam at zest for some assistance in building a website for my new business venture. From concept to finalisation Sam and the team at zest were constantly in contact with me, making absolutely sure the process was on track. zest have ensured that my business makes an outstanding first impression. Of course, a website is not a set and forget proposition. Sam and his team always respond promptly to my requests for updates and tweaks to the site. And, if they haven’t heard from me in while, send me a little reminder letting me know they are there if I need anything. Having a proactive team like zest in my corner gives me great confidence. Sam and his team are local, they understand business in Australia, they are enthusiastic, always contactable, they know their stuff, and they get things done. I cannot recommend zest highly enough.

From the entire Cavaliers crew - thank you to the team of zest-y creatives that have produced a brilliant new website for our club. The player bios section is fantastic, and our overall new brand image with the new logo design is perfect.
Andrew and the zest team were able to deliver above expectation on redesigning and refreshing the long-standing Babyland logo. The finished product is a fantastic, integral component of our new chapter.

I approached zest around some logo and brand concepts when we won approval from Cricket Tasmania to join the Cricket Tasmania Premier League. We needed to be strong and contemporary. Players, coaches and stakeholders immediately engaged with designer Tom Gray’s concepts and they became quite the focus for what ‘The Raiders’ stakeholders were after. Our strong orange and grey logo is already prominent on several hundred articles of player clothing and will come to represent northern Tasmania’s cricket re-emergence for men, women and now under 18s. When it came time to designing tickets for our major raffle to be sold at the 2 Big Bash games and our George Bailey Coterie luncheon in Launceston, Ellie was efficient, detailed and delivered a timely service. Go zest and go Raiders!

- Will McLoughlin
When looking to start my new business I approached Andrew to see what he could offer. The whole process from the first meeting, through to the logo design and web page development was great and the team was fantastic in offer options, recommendations and kept me informed and a part of the whole design process. Nothing was ever too much trouble and the experience was fun, exciting and the end results have been fantastic. I would highly recommended the zest team.
- Heath Clayton

what the FAQ?
Got questions? Awesome - because we’ve got answers!
What is graphic design?
Graphic design refers to the process of bringing text and graphics together to effectively communicate messages and ideas. It can be as simple as business card design through to something more complex like web design.
What can graphic design be used for?
Just about anything! Graphic design is required to produce graphics for all kinds of things including logos, business cards, brochures, posters, banners, signage, websites, email marketing and much more. Our experienced, talented graphic design wizards are able to create exactly what you need, and we're quick.
How does your design process work?
Our design process is straightforward and all we need to get started is the content (think text and images) and a brief (what do you need, are there any specific fonts/colours to be used, what size does it need to be and so on). From there, we’ll work our creative magic and provide an initial proof for you to look over. We will then typically make tweaks as needed, send back another proof for approval and finalise the design so it is ready to go (we call this print-ready).
How long do your design services take?
There’s no simple answer as it depends on the project. A logo design takes approximately 1 to 2 weeks to complete, a business card design is about 1 week start and finish, whilst a website design can take several weeks to design, proof and approve. When you discuss your project with us, we will be able to provide you with a clear timeframe, so you know when to expect completion.
How much does graphic design cost?
This really depends on what you need. We have standard prices for things like logo design and business card design and for just about everything else, we like to discuss your project in detail to give you the best, most cost-effective quote for you to consider. We also charge by the hour, so you are only paying for the time used for your project.
When you design something for me, what do I own?
Great question. As our client you own the final product that we deliver, but the original working files that we've created to produce your final product remain the property of zest. This is standard practice in the design industry.
How do I need to supply my logo/other images for my project?
We have created a ‘cheat sheet’ just for this purpose, check it out here. It runs through which file type to use for what, but in a nutshell, we need high-resolution (ideally vector) files to design with.
