A brand isn't your logo, it's everything. It’s an emotional and rational perception that lives in the minds and hearts of your audience. It’s the sum total of your logo, colours, words, voice and customer experience.

Studio Nine is led by Katrina Knapp. Katrina is an Auckland based creative director and brand designer with over 15 years of experience. 

Since founding Studio Nine in 2018, our aim has always been to design beautiful visual brand identities for small, New Zealand businesses that capture their essence at a more affordable price point.

She collaborates with specialist illustrators, copywriters, photographers and developers to make sure the best result is always delivered.


Studio profile

We set out to create a more inclusive branding studio. We believe every small business deserves a brand that works hard for them. Being small by choice we have lower overhead costs which allows us to offer more competitive prices.

We get to know our clients on a personal level and truly invest in their success. Unlike larger agencies, we have the ability to give more attention and time to each project. You will actually work with the business owner who will work on your project.

We work with hand-picked New Zealand freelance designers and thinkers as we need to — bringing niche skills and expertise to each project as we need to. This approach allows us to provide more tailored services for our clients, resulting in better outcomes.
