About Elan Design


Elan Design Ltd is a multi disciplined, extremely versatile, design advertising studio with talent to burn, infused with common sense and a wealth of experience. We design and create: advertising across all media, illustration, graphic design, logos, brochures, packaging and everything in between including Web sites for large and small business.

What’s Elan Design’s point of difference? Well we hope our work speaks for it self but let us add to
it, by sharing our thoughts, so you might have a clearer understanding of our thinking.

Firstly we are a one stop shop. We can handle all your requirements from newspaper advertising to websites, TV campaigns and everything in between. We’ve been around for 20 years producing fresh innovative thinking that sells. Our oldest clients (15 years) have gone from virtual unknowns to New Zealand’s number 1 sellers beating multi national brands. We’ve helped starter businesses gain countrywide, exclusive dealerships with some of the world’s biggest companies. Others we’ve placed on the map where they’ve gone from strength to strength.

In short we know that you’re like us, you put your neck on the line every day and you love building your business. We know the risks you’ve taken, the hours it takes before you even make a dent in it. We know that most of you have been through truly dark days but through courage and determination, persevere. It’s this quality above all that has got you where you are now. Below is one of our favourite quotes that illustrates this quite well.

Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than
unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; un-rewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.
Calvin Coolidge

Cameron S Foote, author of numerous Design Industry books and President of Creative Business USA says: In the end it’s not the big idea that brings success to your client’s but consistency. Constantly placing their message before their correct target audience will bring them and yourselves success.

This is not what most designers believe or want to hear.
Most want to believe in the potency of their own creative magic.

This is often largely in vain or sometimes simply plain vain. At Elan Design we make sure we always keep our eye on the ball. What is the Ball? The Ball is your goal, your sales growth, your increased market profile or whatever you want the ball to be? Because of this we take a strategic approach. Sure we can create whiz bang ideas and creative works that are stunning just as good and better than most. But whiz bangs will often explode in an array of beautiful colours and then are gone – often burning up a lot of cash in the process.

Typically when we meet a new client we make a point of studying first where you have been in the past, what you are doing now and where do you want to be in the future. By taking a larger overview of your business we are better able to produce stronger marketing and visual communication results for your business no matter what size.

Call today and we’ll provide a free consultation and suggestions where to go from your current position.
