our story

Lime Creative was started by designer Sharon Leslie in 2004. 

We apply the graphic design principles of typography, form, space, colour and pattern, with skilled craftsmanship to create striking branding and print, and combine those skills with user interaction and coding skills to create websites that deliver an engaging experience.

We offer a very friendly personalised service, we get to know our customers and their businesses well. Our clients know they can call us up or send a quick email at any time to bounce an idea, ask for some advice, or get a quick update to their website.

We design because to us it’s fun and exciting, but we realise that what we do can have a big impact for our clients, and they’re looking for a return on their investment. We take that very seriously and work hard to make every project successful.

We have the capability to create a brand identity and follow it through to every brand touchpoint, however, we also take on website and print projects for businesses who have establish brands and identities, which we work with and adhere to. 

Lime Creative works for clients in the tourism, restaurant, property, services, and renewable tech and energy sectors.
