what do i do?

fast turnaround

Quality graphic design work – done quickly to meet that ridiculous deadline.

clever branding

Making your brand look awesome and get noticed (so you sell more stuff).

getting fired up

Even the smallest jobs get my heart racing. (I like every job to feel as thrilling as they did when I was a student).

This is what it’s all about! And I also love that my skills can help others get where they’re going.

about me

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

I have worked as a designer. Taught design. Been freelancing since 2012.

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.

“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
