Photo Restoration

A quick photo restoration and print job completed last week for Izaac of his Great Grandfather (?) when he was just a lad. Original photo was taken from Facebook so the quality was...well FB quality, but managed to sharpen it up and clear away scratches and dust spots for an A4 and 4x6 print.

1933 Chrysler Gauge Faceplates - 4am Studio Blog

1933 Chrysler Gauge Faceplates Design

Back in May, I was approached for a challenging project; to re-create a gauge face-plate for a 1933 Chrysler Imperial for Robert.

Using the 'Oil & Gas' face-plate as a reference and some provided photos, I was able to successfully design a replica of the Water gauge using Adobe Illustrator, and provided the finished artwork to Robert for print and installation.

Thanks All - 4am Studio Blog

Thanks All!

Just wanted to say a huge thanks to all that have supported me so far in the past couple years and even more recently. Thanks to you guys I'm looking pretty booked out for the next week or so, so apologies if you haven't heard from me or I haven't followed up with you - I've just got some big projects on at the moment. But for now have a self-portrait and I'm going to go take a break and have a brew . Cheers mates!



A quick, free and easy way to see if your website is being read and crawled by Google is to set up a ‘Google Alert’ for the search phrase, keyword or content you want your website to be recognised for.

1. Visit https://google.co.nz/Alerts/

2. Type in the content or keywords that you want to create an alert about and click ‘Create Alert’.

3. You will receive emails (choose how often you want to receive the alerts...’As it Happens, At Most Once a Day or At Most Once A Week’.) of current news, or websites relevant to the content you’ve created an alert for.

4. Sit back and see if your website is being crawled for the content. If not, you may need to tweak some keyphrases or content of your website.

Example: website I submitted to Google yesterday was crawled and received an alert for ‘Wanaka’ in my inbox this morning.

Steppin' into Level 3 - Do you need help?

Hi all! Just wanted to send a quick newsletter update to make sure that you're all keeping safe, and sane!

We're looking more and more likely that we will be entering into Alert Level 3 next week which means for some it will mean returning to work (lucky you!) or carrying on what we’ve been doing, by working from home.

Here at 4am Studio, fortunately I can work from home (independent full-service creative design studio) but can help you out if you need any assistance. That could be in any form from Graphic & Website Design, Illustration, Apparel and Signage to Print, Online & Digital Marketing Strategies and SEO solutions.

Stay Safe, Stay Home & Sell Online – If you need a website that offers online sales/purchases or deliveries let me know, I have plenty of options available. Alternatively, if you just need a simple option to get online without building a full-on website try Google My Business (you can see an example of how it looks here; have any questions? Just flick through an email or call 021 0359 391).

I said it would be quick, so if there’s anything I can assist with even if you have general questions/need advice or want ideas for a quick Mother’s Day gift, I’m just an email or phone call away.

Take care,
