Kia Ora! I’m Rosie Percival, a UX (user experience) and graphic designer based in Wellington, New Zealand.
I work with clients across Australasia to translate information and stories into delightful & simplified visual communication experiences.
Twocan Peanut Butter
I worked with an emerging wholefoods company, Twocan Foods to launch a basic website and eCommerce shop for their peanut butter range. I also helped to creative direct the documentary photoshoot.

I was the design researcher for the Pukeahu Anthology, an online place-based anthology. This was an exciting project produced in partnership with Massey University and the Alexander Turnbull National Library. I helped deliver a vibrant and clean website + marketing & exhibition materials for the launch party.
Martha Goes Green
This was a collaborative project that was self-initiated. We self-published a vegetarian cookbook series that sold over 6,000 copies in 50+ stores worldwide. We were featured and/or interviewed for various magazines including Publisher's Weekly, 101 Cookbooks, My Darling Lemon Thyme and MiNDFOOD.
We spoke on self-publishing & design at various events including Spark International Festival of Music, Media, Arts & Design (NZ) and Yarraville Book Lovers festival (AUS), we also hosted cooking demos & workshops. This project spanned from 2009 – 2016.
I worked with Yoga Amrita to design a full visual identity for her new wellness centre in Melbourne, Australia. Deliverables included a fully response website, signage and marketing materials.

Everything about a Fortnight
Everything about a Fortnight was my submission for the International Society of Typographic Designers (ISTD) student assessment scheme. This was part of Massey University's Advanced Typography course and I was awarded membership into the ISTD and passed with Merit.
Food Writing & Styling
The Martha Goes Green team wrote, photographed and styled vegetarian recipes for the Australian Natural Health Magazine (under the 'Green Cooks' column) and for Extra Curricular magazine from 2009 – 2015.

The Yoga Social
Educational Manual Design
I designed the training manuals, graduation certificate and some marketing materials for The Yoga Social. They run 200hr teacher training courses across Australia & Asia. The manuals used existing visual identity and I ensured they were easy to update and economical to print.
I work as a web & UX designer for the Wellington-based company StarNow, and also teach at The Iyengar Yoga Centre of Wellington. This gives me a good balance between offline and online work and also the chance to combine passion with profession.

While I primarily work across web & print, I collaborate with a network of creatives including copyrighters, illustrators, developers, photographers + more
