We create innovative, energetic and customer-focused design.
Great design ticks all the boxes – it looks good, catches the eyes of your target audience and is fit for purpose. That’s where our zest-y creatives come in. We take the time to ensure each and every design project is cohesive with your existing branding (or we can help you create something from scratch), and we can design just about anything.

The professional team at zest made the creation of our McCormack Wines website such a simple and easy experience for us. Not only did they do a magnificent job creating the website, finding perfect imagery, designing the page layout and make it look and function how we wanted it to but Zest also married in business cards and business flyers to match as well. zest is a one-stop-shop, thanks to Sam and the zest team for such a great outcome.

I approached zest around some logo and brand concepts when we won approval from Cricket Tasmania to join the Cricket Tasmania Premier League. We needed to be strong and contemporary. Players, coaches and stakeholders immediately resonated with the design concepts and they became quite the focus for what ‘The Raiders’ stakeholders were after. Our strong orange and grey logo is already prominent on several hundred articles of player clothing and will come to represent Northern Tasmania’s cricket re-emergence for men, women and now under 18s. When it came time to designing tickets for our major raffle to be sold at the 2 Big Bash games and our George Bailey Coterie luncheon in Launceston, Ellie was efficient, detailed and delivered a timely service. Go zest and go Raiders!

We originally went to Zest to get a website developed so that we could sell our lamb online. We arrived with some pretty wild expectations, little knowledge of what we really wanted or was possible, and absolutely zero technological expertise. All we knew was there was a 'feel' that was 'us', that we wanted to capture in a website .... and to sell our lamb online. How on earth does someone convert that into something tangible?!!! Somehow they managed to do it.
Sam was amazing at being able to pull out the 'us' and meld that not only into a website but through a wide range of promotional material to support our business idea. He and the team at Zest brought with them a wide range of industry experience that we had no idea was even required and guided us through the labyrinth that is the current business world. Our already high expectations were not just met but exceeded.
Our heartfelt appreciation and gratitude to you all, for the brilliant work you did for us.

Having zest as a major supporter of my not-for-profit charity, SPEAK UP! Stay ChatTY, has been a huge positive in helping us achieve the professionalism we were after. The quality of our website that they designed is excellent, and just what we were after. Great service and superb workmanship are all that we could have asked for.

Andrew and the team at Zest were amazing in helping set up our brand at The Plough Inn. From our logo, website, signage and everything that needed branding, they were very helpful and informative. Highly recommend!

Rural Youth and the Agfest Organising Committee have enjoyed working with zest for the past 3 years. The team have been accommodating and enthusiastic, open to suggestion and keen to collaborate rather than dictate. We have no hesitation in recommending their team and product.
- Karen Robinson
The feedback from our new website has been very good, which I think reflects on the work that went into it, along with the content that is being uploaded to it. The Chamber has plans on further developing the site down the track and look forward to working with zest again in the future. Sincere thanks to Sam and the team for their guidance and follow ups with the website.
- Daron Gumley
Our new website is much easier to manage and does a more effective job of showcasing our many projects across our service categories. The fresh design is in-line with all our recent brand image changes, and the team at zest continue to manage our marketing beautifully.
Mopoke Munchies has been in the making for years. Now it has finally come to life and we could not have done it without the amazing team at Zest in Launceston. From the very first enquiry they have been great in communication, professionalism and creativeness. During the process of coming up with a logo and making a website we have been constantly informed. We were told exactly what to expect and for what price and what the timeline would be. Even having our logo printed on our van was arranged in no time at all. We cannot recommend the team at Zest enough. We are very pleased with the results.
- Max and Katja Vloet
Sam made the process really easy for us from start to finish. They welcomed our feedback and worked with us to make sure the end result captured the look and feel that we wanted.
- Kat Martyn
The team at zest did an amazing job putting our website together. We are extremely pleased with how it looks and everyone we worked with was always efficient, knowledgeable and friendly. Thanks again for the great work!

From the entire Cavaliers crew - thank you to the team of zest-y creatives that have produced a brilliant new website for our club. The player bios section is fantastic, and our overall new brand image with the new logo design is perfect.
When looking to start my new business I approached Andrew to see what he could offer. The whole process from the first meeting, through to the logo design and web page development was great and the team was fantastic in offer options, recommendations and kept me informed and a part of the whole design process. Nothing was ever too much trouble and the experience was fun, exciting and the end results have been fantastic. I would highly recommended the zest team.
- Heath Clayton
zest handled my website, branding, logos and even stationery and templates to ensure I could focus on building my business. They were timely, professional and honest. Couldn't fault them, highly recommended!
- Michael Hay
Great service, creative ideas and prompt delivery. They listen to their customer.
- Leonie Williams
My experience with the zest team has far exceeded my expectations. The high quality of the product they delivered, the short timeframe it was done and the personal, quick and professional service have all been exemplary. I cannot recommend zest highly enough for logo, website and letterhead design.
- Dr Mikko Larsen
zest produced a unique website design that suits our brand perfectly - clean, detailed, and really very easy for us to manage page content internally moving forward.
I have been using zest for my online businesses for the past 6 years. Since day one, when I had no idea about how to make a website or set up a business, the team at zest have gone above and beyond to help me out. I can’t thank them enough. Without the professionalism and the creativity of zest, my businesses would not be as successful as they are now.
- Mac Northeast
Rural Youth Tasmania have enjoyed working with the zest team! For us, their ability to understand our business and the way we work, has made for great results and a true partnership. The work is a reflection of who we are, not how they think we should be.
- Karen Robinson
In 2010 we took over Tasmanian Hotel & Catering Supplies, taking on an immediate rebrand and expansion of the business statewide. zest have been fantastic since day one, helping with all of our marketing needs, including logo redesign, signage designs, stationery designs and printing, catalogue production, all our daily advertising, and the development of our e-commerce website. The results from the hard work zest put into our advertising and marketing continues to help us grow our business.
The zest-y team are creative and timely. We have had their assistance with a number of projects, big and small, along our journey. We continue to support the team and thank them for their guidance.
- Zach McArthur
Just over two years ago I approached Sam at zest for some assistance in building a website for my new business venture. From concept to finalisation Sam and the team at zest were constantly in contact with me, making absolutely sure the process was on track. zest have ensured that my business makes an outstanding first impression. Of course, a website is not a set and forget proposition. Sam and his team always respond promptly to my requests for updates and tweaks to the site. And, if they haven’t heard from me in while, send me a little reminder letting me know they are there if I need anything. Having a proactive team like zest in my corner gives me great confidence. Sam and his team are local, they understand business in Australia, they are enthusiastic, always contactable, they know their stuff, and they get things done. I cannot recommend zest highly enough.

Got questions? Awesome - because we’ve got answers!
What is graphic design?
Graphic design refers to the process of bringing text and graphics together to effectively communicate messages and ideas. It can be as simple as business card design through to something more complex like web design.
What can graphic design be used for?
Just about anything! Graphic design is required to produce graphics for all kinds of things including logos, business cards, brochures, posters, banners, signage, websites, email marketing and much more. Our experienced, talented graphic design wizards are able to create exactly what you need, and we're quick.
How does your design process work?
Our design process is straightforward and all we need to get started is the content (think text and images) and a brief (what do you need, are there any specific fonts/colours to be used, what size does it need to be and so on). From there, we’ll work our creative magic and provide an initial proof for you to look over. We will then typically make tweaks as needed, send back another proof for approval and finalise the design so it is ready to go (we call this print-ready).
How long do your design services take?
There’s no simple answer as it depends on the project. A logo design takes approximately 1 to 2 weeks to complete, a business card design is about 1 week start and finish, whilst a website design can take several weeks to design, proof and approve. When you discuss your project with us, we will be able to provide you with a clear timeframe, so you know when to expect completion.
How much does graphic design cost?
This really depends on what you need. We have standard prices for things like logo design and business card design and for just about everything else, we like to discuss your project in detail to give you the best, most cost-effective quote for you to consider. We also charge by the hour, so you are only paying for the time used for your project.
When you design something for me, what do I own?
Great question. As our client you own the final product that we deliver, but the original working files that we've created to produce your final product remain the property of zest. This is standard practice in the design industry.
How do I need to supply my logo/other images for my project?
We have created a ‘cheat sheet’ just for this purpose, check it out here. It runs through which file type to use for what, but in a nutshell, we need high-resolution (ideally vector) files to design with.
