A Little Bit About Us

We are a small seaside design studio based in Christchurch, New Zealand,
who are all about visual solutions, ideas and relationships.

At Tonic Design we offer a creative and approachable design service, with a growing reputation to exceed expectation.

We’re experienced collaborators, with expertise extending across a broad range of media. We specialise in branding, graphic design and marketing, photography, website design and development, digital solutions and online marketing. Our work produces results that inspire, influence and inform.

Self described as a results driven design company, Tonic Design was founded in 1997 from Beveridge Street, Christchurch (hence the name). Now occupying a seaside office at the founding owners Martin Little and Kate Dickson’s residence, we are constantly expanding the scope of our market experience. Every project we undertake benefits from our existing expertise and relaxed, inspirational environment of the beach!

We like to work closely with the client to develop, direct, design, produce and manage a wide range of creative communications. A small five person creative team, all with unique strengths, our designs are as solid as our clients. Our designs are just as diversified.

We deliver exceptional design, communication and marketing solutions to satisfied clients in organisations and businesses large and small. We offer the BIG agency results but at an affordable cost.

With fresh, sharp talent and a rapid thirst for success, Tonic Design is guaranteed to inject some exceptionally creative design into your next communication project.
