Hurst Design Company

Brand & website design made simple

Honest, intuitive, one-on-one logo, brand and website design for awesome individuals and small businesses

You know that your business or personal brand needs a fresh look. Perhaps you’re adding new services or going in a completely new direction.

You want branding that represents who you are and what you do. Maybe it’s a new logo, a new website, brand development and strategy, or something in-between.

You want to work directly with the person creating your design and know that they have taken the time to understand you and your business.

Why me?

Hi, my name is Lewis Hurst. As a business owner myself, I know how important it is to communicate your brand effectively and to partner with the right people on your journey. I understand the importance of great design and the difference it can make.

Together we will unearth, mould and enhance your brand story, then create effective designs tailored to your unique needs.

I have more than 20 years of experience in graphic design, working across print and digital media, but what I enjoy most is learning about people and businesses and helping them be great!

Sound good?


We have a concept in Māori called Wairua, which embodies the spirit and, in this instance, the spirit of forging connections with others. Lewis has been instrumental in guiding our organisation on this transformative journey. Through his expertise, our website now serves as a conduit for meaningful connections, conveying a message of seamless flow and unity. Lewis has demonstrated exceptional patience and dedication, taking the time to truly understand and share our organisation's aspirations of awakening cultural potential through Te Ao Māori. Without hesitation, I highly recommend Lewis for his ability to create a website that is authentic and truly brings your vision to life.

Lewis was really great to work with. He took the time to properly understand my goals as a business and what I wanted from a brand and website. He took on board the few ideas I had (mostly just around my favourite colours!), but it meant so much to see how he then cleverly transformed my thoughts into a design that reflected what I was hoping to see. I love it! I’d recommend Lewis to anyone wanting a new or updated brand, thanks Lewis!

Plan A is New Zealand’s leading tendering consultancy. Core to the success of our work is the ability to translate the complex into the compelling, and there are few sectors where the phrase ‘a picture paints a thousand words’ is more applicable. Lewis is one of our ‘go to’ design specialists when we need a thousand words turned into a concise, compelling ‘picture’, and his work has helped our clients in numerous bids.

It is always a pleasure working with Lewis. Whether it’s website development, design or branding, he takes the time to understand not only your needs but your values. I have worked on and off with Lewis for almost 10 years and have always found him to be reliable and genuine. I would highly recommend him to any business who wants far more than a transactional approach.

Lewis did an amazing job creating a brand which I absolutely love. From the outset, Lewis explained his process and was willing to listen and take on board my ideas. He was easy to contact, efficient and went above and beyond helping me to launch my business. His attention to detail is outstanding and his approachable nature meant that I never felt like I was being annoying with all my requests and questions. The brand he created was better than I could’ve imagined!

My process

1. Discovery

Together, we take a deep dive into what makes your business tick: who you are, what you do, how you do it AND who you’re selling to and why they should choose you.

2. Design

I transform the information gathered in the Discovery stage into a blend of ink, sweat, tears and pixels – and out comes your beautiful new brand. A gallery of logos, fonts, colours and more that will style your business into the future.

3. Delivery

You see your new brand realised in form and function – websites, business cards, marketing material and more to announce your business to your market.

But first....

Just like any new relationship, we need to see if we have that spark. Let’s start with a chat to see if we’re a good fit.

Brand Design Package

A brand is more than your logo. It’s an expression of you and your company that should captivate and entice the viewer. A brand represents the personality, mission, vision and values of your business and is designed for your unique customer.
