Amber Metcalfe

Graphic Designer

Auckland, New Zealand
My academic background is in Graphic Design, but I frequently moonlight in various other fields. From web to print, music to video.
I believe that all good design should engage and communicate with people. I always ensure that I’m always on brief to deliver a fully considered idea-driven solution that’s both relevant and beneficial to your business.

Since Downer NZ is a construction company, the main aspects of my job include tender design. Having high value tenders with a tight dead line is a consistency throughout all tenders. Coming up with ideas for covers, complex diagrams and info graphics, curriculum vitae layouts and the construction of the document itself, binding etc. Also advertising posters for boxing event and road shows, and material for important meetings with Auckland Transport, Auckland Council and more private sector affiliations. Having to work with stakeholders for comments and feedback about designs or the brief of a design.
