Hello fellow business owner, I'm Jo, the creative behind Simply Whyte Design, a boutique design studio that crafts unique creations for businesses seeking to capture the attention of their dream audience. I'm a qualified designer with a diploma from ACG Yoobee School of Design Computer Graphic Design Level 6 and industry experience working at the amazing Takapuna design studio, Toast.

I started Simply Whyte Design in 2015 wanting to help those who want to make a big impact with their brand image and have a personal relationship with their designer.

I love to work with all types of businesses including, fashion labels, photographers, musicians, retailers, restaurants, charities, business consultants, fitness, financial planners, equestrian enthusiasts and more. I live to create!

Whatever design needs are, Simply Whyte Design has your back. So, let’s do this! Get in touch with me to find out how I can help get your design project off the ground. Or if you haven't seen my services page, check it out and see if something tickles your fancy.



Joanne Whyte from Simply Whyte Design recently produced a new product logo for Softlink. From the outset Jo, was professional, organised, creative and able to very quickly understand our requirements for the new logo. As well as offering fresh and innovative creative ideas she was able to fully grasp the business/marketing objectives and work within these, which is a rare and valuable asset for a graphic designer. Jo’s responses were always timely and her services very professional. Her skills and graphic design knowledge are also clearly advanced. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Joanne Whyte.

At first we were reluctant to hire a designer because we were quite set on what we wanted to achieve but realised we needed professional help. After meeting Joanne in person we were confident she would listen and take into consideration the vision we had. Her communication was mind blowingly good and we were extremely impressed with the whole process. The effort and care she puts into the customer service was second to none; from the carefully thought out presentation for each step to the vast collection of branding material we received. We had so much fun that we were even a bit sad when the project was completed. The brand Joanne has created for us brings a lot of compliments from everyone we've shown, we're proud to have such a strong brand representing us. We recommend Joanne to everyone in a heartbeat!

- Alexander and Hannah

"I had little idea about what I wanted my logo and brand to be, but this was no trouble for her – we worked as a team from the very beginning. Joanne got me started right away with collating designs, shapes, colours and fonts that I was drawn too. From here, she was able to notice trends in my choosing’s straight away, and soon she had mastered an awesome logo that spoke loudly to my audience – it is vibrant, fun, and empowering. Joanne listened to my every question and request, yet kept me grounded when thinking about further strategies. She is an awesome person to work with, and creates fantastic designs; I couldn’t recommend Joanne highly enough!"

Jo designed a flyer and a program that was not only eye catching but also met our specific needs. She was quick to make changes, always friendly and very personable (which makes her a pleasure to work with). She offers many quality ideas and is honest about what she thinks will and wont work. I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting a clever, striking, and professional piece of design work. Thank you very much Jo – you were fantastic to work with.

-Marisna Roodt, Rosedale Pony Club

We engaged Joanne of Simply Whyte Design to assist us with a logo, corporate identify and our website design. We were excited with each element of this process and the implementation. She certainly performed above our expectations in terms of cost savings and the speed with which she accomplished this assignment. What we appreciated most about working with Jo was her ability to deliver without any protest, keep us very happy, and deliver the expected results and then some.

-Brian Klee, Life-info
