Welcome to Magic Fingers Graphics!
Hi! I'm Natalie White, a graphic designer with over 10 years experience, based in Cambridge in the mighty Waikato. From a website, a brand, a brochure or anything in between - I love people's stories. How and what they do, where they go, who they influence. I'm here to help connect and tell those stories, through branding, communications, and presence.
I strive to do great design work with integrity, authenticity and a humble heart.
"And make it your ambition to lead a quiet life and work with your hands".
Design ... it's in my blood, my DNA! With a mum who was a signwriter (the paintbrush, handwritten kind) and a graphic artist (BC: Before Computers) for a dad, it's a creative family! My Dad, Brian Morrell started the business over 40 years ago in Auckland and he hand wrote & designed the logo that's still in use today! (Now that's good branding, huh?)
Experience & Education
With years of design experience, I started as an in-house graphic designer in 2006, where I designed branding and collateral for startup companies. I later worked at a small agency, Hanson Creative as the Senior Designer for just on 10 years, before stepping out on my own venture.
I studied at the University of Waikato and in 2007, finished and gained a Bachelor of Computer Graphic Design (conjointly awarded with Whanganui School of Design).
In 2015, I spent a month volunteering in Tanzania, Africa, helping to create two libraries at two schools. An incredible and life-changing experience and one that not only changed me, but lots of children who are eager to read as much as they can.
