Zoe Moncaster Graphic Designer at ZoeByDesign

Checking out a city’s local street art or design festivals is always a must.

Hi there, I’m Zoë, Graphic Designer in Print + Digital.  Since graduating in 2010 with a BA(Hons) in Graphic Communication from the University for the Creative Arts (UK), I’ve worked in London, Melbourne and moved to New Zealand in February 2017 and am now based in Auckland.

Design is my job as well as my passion so in my spare time you’ll find me trying out anything to do with type + lettering. Disclaimer: I may be a bit of a type geek, one of my favourite books being Stop Stealing Sheep & Find Out How Type Works, co-written by one of my favourite typographers, Erik Spiekermann.

The logical part of my brain means I still like to code in HTML and CSS, where there’s a right or wrong answer. It also comes in handy when I’m tweaking my website or handling client email newsletters.

No matter the country I find myself working in, I like to keep on top of trends, attending workshops where available and practicing at home, watching tutorials, working on mini-projects in my downtime.
