About us

Brendon and Nina Wright have been in freelance Illustration since 2006.  
We work with both Corporate and private clients – our artwork appears everywhere from framed birthday gifts to presentations at the United Nations.

In recent years we’ve expanded to book layout and publishing. Though we’re based in Christchurch NZ, we’re doing a lot of work with The77 Publications over in the UK.

New Zealand has proved a great place to run a small business and keep overheads low.
Homegrown veges even taste better here!
Is it time for illustrated garden tutorials?

"Brendon has been doing illustrations and posters for my books and my work in schools for over 10 years now. His posters, charts and illustrations have really appealed to the children (and teachers) I work with. They love the bright colours and variety of interesting characters that he has created. The posters are eye catching and very clearly portray the information to be shared."

Martin Van Der KleyResource Teacher of Learning and Behaviour

“Brendon is fabulously creative and easy to work with, his illustrations brought the characters of my children's storybook to life. My youngest (now three) asks for Ovkors the horse every night.”

Dr. Nick Draper Author; Adjunct Professor, School of Sport and Physical Education, University of Canterbury.

“Brendon has worked on a number of complex and demanding jobs for me. I use him because he delivers excellent work, on time and to the brief. I have no hesitation in recommending Brendon.”
