A design agency that takes the time to understand your organisation and what you are trying to achieve. Whatever the scale or sector, Kopara will help you make good choices for maximum advantage, rather than sell you something you don’t need. Creative directors Murray Grossmith and Sally Nash use their complementary experience and skills, which span several decades and multiple disciplines, to develop strong working relationships that enable clients to move forward confidently with clear messaging and smart design solutions. Our work encompasses everything from brand identities, brochures and advertising, to websites, brand development and social media campaigns. We are an independent consultancy, based in Otautahi/Christchurch, New Zealand, and have worked with organisations of all sizes all over the world. However, our ethos is always the same: to produce outstanding and practical creative solutions and to be fair, friendly and honest at all times.

Murray is a highly skilled creative with a wealth of big-brand experience, as well as a rock-solid set of business skills. He ran a successful agency in the UK for over 16 years before emigrating to New Zealand in 2008, firmly committing from the start to what he considers the best country in the world. Murray’s key talents include his common-sense approach to solving business challenges, boundless positivity and his ability to think outside the box.

Sally spent her early career in the UK’s publishing industry, working for The Economist, Reed and Emap, where she was head of creative services for a business press division, managing a range of magazine titles. She has a diverse range of project skills, from copywriting and editing, to producing outstanding designs and content for magazines, events, brands and websites. Key talents include a critical eye and organisational skills.

  • I so appreciate everything you have done for us and, quite frankly, I can’t imagine The Education Hub without you!

  • We love working with you guys. You really know your stuff and you take time to listen carefully to us. You give us honest, creative, practical advice that is proving to be highly effective.

    Bruce McIntyre – Chairperson, Journey to Brilliance / Seven Oaks School
  • We briefed Kopara to help us rebrand, following the merger of two of New Zealand’s leading planning consultancies. They created a unified approach to our branding, signage, literature and online presence, which cements our position as an industry leader. Kopara have proved themselves to be an extremely flexible, positive and professional agency to work with and I don’t hesitate to recommend them.

  • I cannot speak highly enough of Murray’s expertise, professionalism and passion. His creativity matches his understanding of what is needed for a not-for-profit to be effective. The first newsletter he designed for us [for Ronald McDonald House South Island] raised more money than the previous four combined. He also brainstormed an innovative corporate campaign that was recognised for excellence internationally. I sincerely recommend Kopara to anyone who wants quality, creativity, results, a collaborative partnership and, just as importantly, people who are a pleasure to work with.

    Rose Crossland – Advancement Manager, St Margaret's College
  • Murray has a firm understanding of creating strategic campaigns that deliver something special and drive great return on investment. He has high energy and is a very engaging and motivational team contributor alongside being an exceptional designer and creative director.
