We run a lean operation, keeping costs down and maintaining a consistent quality for all.

Good Design is Good for Business

Successful businesses know the power of graphic design and advertising. Since 2003 Activate Design has been the design team behind iconic award winning hospitality businesses in Christchurch such as The Dux de Lux - awarded the 'NZ pub of the Year' 2006 & 2008 at the NZ bar awards and 'Outstanding Hospitality Venue' 2006 by Ferndale Chads. We are also the team behind The Twisted Hop - awarded Best Bar in Christchurch at the 2005 Hospitality Awards!

But it's not only our hospitality clients who are successful. We are the graphic design and web team supporting Busy Bumbles; a multi award winning and rapidly expanding child care company. Awarded 'Best New OSCAR Programme in New Zealand in 2011' and Most Outstanding OSCAR Programme in Canterbury 2012.'

We have also designed national awareness campaigns for the health industry such as Glaucoma New Zealand and The New Zealand Red Cross.

Our website designs are award winning, with The Millhouse website recently picking up Top Tourism New Zealand website design award.
