who we are

amber Ireland

Art Director


Amber’s love of colour and design led her straight from school into the design industry where she’s been producing creative branding and print designs for the past 20 years.

In 2006, Amber launched Onyx Design, which quickly grew to become an influential design studio. This comes as little surprise to her clients, who know Amber to be an enthusiastic and hardworking designer who delivers the best possible design results on budget and on time.

Amber loves spending time with her growing family, laughing till it hurts, chocolate, pinot gris, rock n roll, up-cycling, op-shopping and collecting art by New Zealand painters and sculptors. Of course, like all art-lovers her only complaint is that her budget doesn’t always match the artwork she desires!

Jinx her black and white puddycat.



Graphic Designer


Keri-Ann started as the young gun at
Onyx Design on Valentines Day 2017. Armed with a Bachelor of Media Arts from Wintec City Campus in Hamilton, she is now enjoying the chance to put her skills and knowledge of the design industry to
use in Onyx Design’s busy studio.

Keri-Ann is super smiley, cheerful and a
hard-worker which we found out when she first did work-experience here back in 2013. So when we needed another designer to join the team we hunted her down.

Away from the desk, Keri-Ann loves sunny weekends full of friends and family, a cheeky wine (or two), fashion and all things art and music.

client testimonials

Onyx Design provides exceptional graphic design and print solutions to a wide variety of clients. Here is what just a few of them have to say:

  "Onyx Design have carried out a wide range of design and layout work for Ballance Agri-Nutrients for many years.

Ballance is a large, national company and we place high value on brand integrity. Our brand is based on our core colour, logo and font, and is supplemented by a range of product brands, each of which has its own branding restrictions.

All the work that Onyx Design has completed for Ballance, shows an excellent appreciation of our branding requirements.

The team are professional, courteous and efficient, and I would have no hesitation in recommending their services."

Sue Page – Technical Information Manager

Ballance Agri-Nutrients
Hewletts Road, Mount Maunganui

  "We gave Onyx Design the task of creating a new company logo for us to replace our outdated logo of 15 years. Amber came up with a funky, fresh, eye catching design which bought us into the 21st century while still managing to reflect the nature of our business.

Amber was always patient in dealing with our
many requests and at the end of a job extremely well done, we were presented with a very affordable bill."

Jane Quinn - International Trade

Bostock New Zealand

"I have known Amber and the team at Onyx Design for several years. There would be over a hundred jobs we’ve done together and they continue to surprise me with new ideas and fresh perspective.

If I’m after any design work, whether it’s brand development, book or report formatting, marketing collateral, or print advice, Onyx Design is the first number I call.

If you’re in the market for graphic design, give Amber and the team a call. You will be impressed."

Josh Willoughby

PR and Communications Manager

"I have enjoyed a long and successful working relationship with Amber Ireland and the team at Onyx Design, and continue to be impressed by the service they deliver.

They are extremely talented designers and their professional approach and ability to consistently deliver on or before deadline are second to none. Not only do they come up with creative and unique design concepts, their disciplined approach means they take direction well, often having to follow strict branding guidelines.

I’ve seen Onyx Design go from strength to strength over the years – a testament to the teams reliability, quick turnaround, enthusiasm and exceptionally high standard of work."
