about me

Hello… I’m Demelza.

I am heavily involved in a love affair with design. It has been going on for quite a while now.

It’s been over 20 years since I first stepped out of TAFE and into a studio for my first paid gig. Since then I have worked for ad agencies, print houses and in-house for various companies, big and small. For a while I taught graphic design at nights, back at my old TAFE.

In 2012 I opened my own studio, Powdermonkey Design.

When I say ‘studio’, of course I mean me, with a laptop, at my kitchen table.

It’s this passion for graphic design, years of print and web design know-how and my experience running a micro-business that lie at the heart of what I do.

Powdermonkey Design is creative for the people. That means I turn it around fast. I price it so it’s it’s affordable. And of course I make sure it always looks fabulous.

But I also use my knowledge and experience to make sure my clients get the best advice on how to use design to build their businesses.

Because small business owners are my tribe.

Let’s get creative!

“When it was time to get a new logo for our publishing company, Demelza was an absolute pleasure to work with. Adapting the source material, she designed the perfect logo for us very quickly, and in line with all of our technical requirements. Not only did she meet the brief, she went above and beyond in customer service, and we are very pleased with the result.”

–  Jason Fischer, Argonautica Press

“I have had the opportunity to utilise the creative talents of Demelza Thorpe since 2011 and have found her to be highly professional and very effective in producing high quality work within the agreed time frames. Her ability to take my poorly detailed request and turn it into a highly creative concept has resulted in many great products being completed across a range of horticultural based industries. I continue to utilise Demelza for all my graphic design work.”

– Trevor Ranford, Trevor Ranford Pty Ltd

“Demelza has been creating our event and member directories for the past five years and has grasped each brief perfectly. It has been wonderful working with such a creative, responsive and professional designer. It has been a joy to work with Demelza and I look forward to our continuing work with her.”

–  Penny Cranmer, YPO Gold Adelaide

Powdermonkey Design has been one of the best finds we have ever made – for some time we wasted time and money with several other web designers and now are so appreciative to Demi for creating our web site with no fuss and promptly…

Demelza captured all of what we previously attempted to produce.

Thank you, Demi, for delivering what you offered at our first meeting, your professional approach to our needs was very helpful and you’re continuous follow up is greatly appreciated – YOU ARE AWESOME!!

– Ian & Jenny Scott, Jenco Build & Design

A big shoutout to Demelza Thorpe from Powdermonkey Design for designing my beautiful marketing pack!  She truly thought about what service I was selling and what my theme was. Demelza’s words… “combining my beach theme with the idea of retirement and life planning, by using an image of a cockleshell, and turning it on its side to represent a butterfly – flying free”.

I just love the way she spoke about my business and that she respected and valued my input. I now have a professional marketing pack to use wherever I want to…eezy peezy!

– Susanna Philbey, Life Directions Planning
