About

I've always had creativity running through my brains. I am one of the lucky few to wake up in the morning and look forward to getting to my desk. I took the leap in 2012 to leave my day job and go out on my own. I have never regretted a second of it.

Roxy is a reliable and talented designer, who I am happy to recommend to anyone. Not only is she good at what she does, she is a pleasure to deal with and a bright and lovely soul.

I have been using Roxy for a number of years now. Rocket design has never left me wanting or needing more from their creative excellence or speedy service and delivery of material. I highly recommend Rocket Design to any individual or business both near and far. More...

Roxy Ellis designed our 2018 Feral Cat Annual for the Edendale Feral Cat Club (EFCC). Her great style and brilliant editing made the Annual a hit, the sales of which went towards fundraising for our hospital feral cats. Roxy is a consummate professional, quick to respond and was so obliging with the EFCC's vision of the design, while still bringing her own special ideas to the project. She is a true gem in the world of design and we are thrilled to have Roxy as our official EFCC Annual designer! More...

Rocket Roxy!!! What would I do without her!! I have two businesses and she does ALL my work. It is so rare to find a designer that actually gets you...well, I am lucky as I found one. All those crazy creative ideas rattling around in my head, she knows how to turn them into real working designs and not just any designs but stunning designs.

She is truly talented as well as timeous and reliable. If you need a reference, you are welcome to contact me and do go and have a look at my brands and her creations - Anna Africa and Long Dog.

You wont be disappointed sending your work her way.

Roxy is my design guru....my pillar...my inspiration.
She can take anything I want and put a sensational spin on it.
Her work is quirky, original and always of the highest standard.
Her pricing is great and she will never let you down.
My brand has grown from strength to strength with Roxy at my side.
Thank you and here's to many more fun filled, brain storming years together.

Roxy is simply amazing. She is an absolute pleasure to work with. I haven't met her personally, but just by discussing my needs over email, she was able to create a fresh look for my logo, which totally fits my company feel and my personality. World class!

Q&A

Research, research, research! There are so many businesses starting out or trying to keep up with trends. My creative process always starts with research and getting to know more about your industry. Once I have had a look at your potential competition, that's when my mind starts the brainstorming on how I can help you get ahead.

With regards to logo and branding, I will send you a questionnaire with a bunch of questions that you will need to answer for me to start gathering information, as well as seeing your ideas, likes and dislikes. That way, we can meet in the middle.

I love being creative. I love taking an idea and making it real. I love brainstorming and scratching down on a notepad until something just clicks. I love learning new techniques in my craft.

I lived at sea and travelled around the world for many years. I loved it and I couldn't imagine not being on the open water. But, at the same time I was missing out on my family. So I decided to make the (scary) trek back to land! It was terribly hard adjusting to a new lifestyle. I started a job in a finance company and I hated it. The life was draining out of me and I felt like I had made a terrible decision. Then my Mum, who is a designer and desktop publisher told me to come in and sit with her in the evenings and see if I like what she does. I instantly found my calling!
So I saved up some pennies in the bank and made the decision to give notice and go out on my own. It wasn't easy and owning your own business will never be a breeze. But, I am happy, I am content, I am sleep deprived at times and I want to CTRL Z things in life when they aren't right!
We have one life, why not make it a happy one.

I am (sounds cliche) deadline driven and I have, to date, never missed a deadline. I am committed to having a job worked on until it is pure perfection. I am easy going and if I don't know something, I will figure it out.

Services

I design all my logos in vector format. Once completed the client receives ALL files in various sizes and formats, all being high resolution. I provide the client with all fonts and colour swatches. The logo files, once approved include the following files: Ai and EPS files (Vector) High resolution JPG files in various sizes High resolution PNG files in various sizes Colour Swatches and font files Primary and secondary colour swatches High resolution PDF file

Why do you need a branding manual? Brand guidelines play an important role in managing the perceptions of your company. Everytime you communicate with customers, suppliers, employees, investors and the community it is essential to build and reinforce a consistent brand for your company. What does this include? 2 x logo design options (the manual will be designed using the chosen, approved logo) Primary colour palettes and fonts Secondary colour palettes and fonts Iconography Suggested style of photographic images Suggested business card design Suggested email signature design Suggested letterhead design Suggested social media profile and cover images The logo files, once approved include the following files: Ai and EPS files (Vector) High resolution JPG files in various sizes High resolution PNG files in various sizes Colour Swatches and font files Primary and secondary colour swatches High resolution PDF file

Any marketing material required for a business. These items can range from brochures to poster design, flyers to company profiles.

Social media is a huge part, if not the largest platform for business advertising. I offer complete in-house services; this meaning that I do the concepts, design and action of scheduling posts etc. No design or concept is done by a third party. Thus keeping costs down. Bring your Facebook business page to life with good quality design, thought out adverts, meaningful posts etc.

I started in this industry working in an educational publishing company turning manuscripts into books. This is known as Desktop Publishing, a job that the majority of designers dislike. But I have a great love for books and education so it is a job that I love eternally.
