I am a web & graphic freelance designer, brander, illustrator and a creative thinker.
Currently located in Dunedin, New Zealand and working globally!
I've studied architecture and design in the three languages that I speak,
German, Russian and English.
I follow the KISS formula. Keep it short and simple!
My job as a designer, is to be a storyteller.
Everything should be as simple as possible, but not simpler!
Growing up I was constantly surrounded by, and immersed in different cultures and nations. I learned to speak 3 languages, giving me a unique perspective on art and design.
Jewellery design & jewellery making is another big interest, that I've pursued while studying at the Otago Polytechnic, and my project "Cosmos & Fables" won a Creative vision award 2018.

Diana is one of the most creative designers I have met in New Zealand. She has helped us in designing our marketing brochure and some other marketing design materials for O’Callaghan. I highly recommend her for her creative skills and work ethics.

Dianna was great to work with. And the result we achieved was better than we could have anticipated. Diana responded to the brief instantly, she was quick to make changes as we suggested as was always available to help us. I’m sure the success of the first Dine Dunedin was in part due to the attractive, eye catching brochure she designed.

Working with Diana was a pleasure. I contacted her with no idea about graphic design or website design and she took my vague ideas and created a logo and website for my new business. She was easy to deal with, adaptable, punctual and had great communication. I would certainly recommend her and look forward to working with her again in the future.
