Tui Starlee Design

Kia Ora! I’m Tui.

I'm a visual communication designer currently living in Christchurch, New Zealand. I have recently completed a Bachelor of Design with Honours at Massey University. I'm a sun-soaked born kiwi passionate about typography, editorial/ publication design, empathetic design, brand identity, illustration and photography. 



Puku Ora 

Puku Ora is a personal account of living with Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Irritable Bowel Syndrome is painful and exhausting. Researching and implementing scientific information is consuming and difficult. This project employs a strategy of ‘humanising good scientific information’. By carefully identifying each stage of this experience the book offers a nurturing and empathetic step by step support framework to follow. A book delivering good science wrapped in beautiful empathy.

Cyanotypes - The Process

A book that documents the processes of cyanotypes during the making of Puku Ora. Using both the sun UV and a UV light room to expose the objects. A process of time, patience and beauty.

ISTD - Mount Erebus Disaster

Responding to the ISTD brief ‘Significance of Numbers’. The world civil disaster in New Zealand was caused by the wrong co-ordinates.
