"Char has a great sense of humour,
is honest in her opinions,
fresh and creative with her designs,
and most importantly has spunk
that will add value to your business or organisation."
Fresha Creative provided graphic design support to the 2018 Hilux New Zealand Rural Games,
Norwood New Zealand Rural Sports Awards and the Property Brokers Running of the Wools.
Char came to us in our second year in Manawatu. Prior to this, we used a number of designers across various platforms.
Char rebuilt much of what we had and created a library of workable files that we will be able to use ongoing.
From designs for flags, signs and coreflutes to print and online adverts, flyers, programmes,
invitations, posters, menus, social media competitions and much more.
This year, Char also developed a logo for the NZ Rural Sports Awards - helping to lift the profile of this prestigious event now in its second year.
One event alone can be a big ask of a sole operator, three on in the same weekend is probably a little crazy.
However, with good time management and the ability to turn designs around over night we nailed it.
Char has a great sense of humour, is honest in her opinions, fresh and creative with her designs,
and most importantly has spunk that will add value to your business or organisation.

"thanks to char, the brand is looking amazing"
The Manfeild brand was in serious need of a freshen-up.
Thanks to Char, the brand is looking amazing. With the updated logo, expanded colour range and new collateral,
the Manfeild brand is out there and people are noticing the changes. We have received positive feedback
from our customers and clients about our brand and we are delighted with how it looks on the shelves
at information centres and online. Thank you Char for all the hard work updating our brand and collateral.

"She understood me, my brand and what I stand for
and kept things simple and easy for me to manage."
"Char did an absolutely fantastic job with my new website! She understood me,
my brand and what I stand for and kept things simple and easy for me to manage.
Even when we encountered some hick-ups, Char was ready to help and figure out what to do.
I love the fresh new look of my website, the easy navigation and a site that represents me.
I would definitely recommend Char and her fab work!"

"I could not imagine working with anyone else"
"My Italian Destiny" is my first published book and when I decided to self publish
I wanted to find someone I could work closely with and who could understand
the specialness of the story and enhance the book with a fantastic design.
I am so glad I chose Char to do the book design. I cannot imagine working with
anyone else. We have a great connection, Char listened well and her design ideas
were fantastic. I am so thrilled with the book - an amazing story enriched with wonderful
design.We were under a tight deadline and Char pulled out all the stops to make it work.
Thanks a million Char and can't wait to work with you on the sequel.
Lynn Kirkland, author of My Italian Destiny..

communicate with. Will not hesitate to use her again. Thanks Char!!

"Charlene’s design work and
professionalism proved to be first class."
We recently approached Charlene about designing business cards, flyers and a web site for our company Hire a Housewife.
We had previously been to a few designers including a large well known printing company and was disappointed with what we received back.
Charlene’s design work and professionalism proved to be first class.
She immediately picked up on and showed that she completely understood our vision,
then bought creative ideas and design work that complemented and enhanced that vision, all at a very competitive price.
I would strongly advise anyone needing a creative designer to use the services of Fresha Creative.
Natasha Harding, Director, Hire a Housewife LTD
"a talented designer who turns out stunning work."
Charlene is a designer who not only has the talent to create beautiful layouts, she is incredibly conscientious,
great at working to timelines and the sort of person who goes above and beyond to ensure every aspect of your vision is
created and all the details are perfect. I am absolutely wrapped with the finished result and would highly recommend her
services to anyone that is after a talented designer who turns out stunning work.

"She has been fantastic - attentive, approachable and nothing is ever to much."
We have had Charlene give us a new logo and new menus for our cafe.
She has been fantastic - attentive, approachable and nothing is ever to much.
So detail orientated and made the whole process so easy and fun!

"I recommend her and her company to anyone looking for book layout and design"
I found Charlene Lucas from Fresha Creative a delight to work with, even though we never met.
Nothing was too much trouble. She is a fast worker, has excellent time management, and has been very responsive to all my queries.
Changes were always willingly made (and there were quite a lot!) and she always had a smile in her voice.
I was very impressed with her attention to detail in regards to the process and copyright
issues with (to me) complex things like fonts, images and design.
And she also liaised really well with the printers when technical things needed an expert’s attention.
Her work is her testimonial – I’m really happy with this baby
– Getting a Grip on Parenting Time: 86 commonsense lessons from the trenches.
recommend her and her company to anyone looking for book layout and design.

"Charlene really took the time to research and
understand my business and target market"
As soon as I chatted to Charlene about creating my brand and website, I knew she was going to be such a great fit.
Charlene really took the time to research and understand my business and target market.
She has blown be away with what she has created in the time frame we had. Her attention to detail, her friendly, approachable
nature and her strong work ethic have meant that this whole process has not only gone so smoothly for me,
but it has been such a fun journey! It has helped me to understand my own business and target market
more and I think my branding is just stunning. I can't recommend her enough,
I am looking forward to working with her again soon.
