always thinking outside the box

I have two beliefs:

The future can be better than the present, and I have the power to make it so.

Hi! I’m Vernita

I’m in the creative industry because I enjoy the adventure. My curiosity is that of a cat, and problem solving is fun to me (I know, weird). I chose design as my career path because I enjoy it and I want to help others feel happiness and/or achieve their goals. In my nine years of designing, I’ve developed into an adaptable designer, working in digital and print for various design fields. You can see a more detailed description of my design path below.

There have been many landmarks of success and growth in my career as a designer. I’ve listed a few to help you understand my story.

2016 – Well, this was a biggie. I decided that I wanted to broaden my horizons  by testing out a new country… and so I did! I moved to New Zealand and have been working as a designer here ever since. I’ve come across some amazing design opportunities in NZ, including the opportunity to work with a Pacific Island school and learn about their culture and the opportunity to help build brands for a few start up businesses. Currently, I’m working with companies like 20th Century Fox and Universal pictures as a senior graphic designer.

2015 – Working with an advertising agency that had a variety of big-name clients, I took on a position as a marketing coordinator/designer. I met with clients directly, which gave me an inside look at the business side to advertising. I distributed work to my team and created an organized system of production. And, as a designer, balanced many aesthetics and wore many hats, all while meeting deadlines.

2012 – I was approached by an LA company to develop a t-shirt line. I worked for almost a year developing the line, which was released at a Staples Center trade-show event. This was an incredible opportunity and I learned a great deal about apparel design during this project.

2009 – My ‘foot in the door’ to the design world was with a product development company. Being only in my second year of university, the company hired me as a signage cutter. That’s right, I cut foam-core signage… for months. After proving my cutting skills and networking with the crew, I was finally sat at a computer and began my path as a product and packaging designer. In my nearly 5 years with the company, I designed a variety of giftware products, including a jewelry line, a makeup bag line, and concepted a pilsner glass line that sold over 1 million dollars at retail.

I’ve found that I can get along with pretty much anyone. I’m one of those people who just ‘gets’ where people are coming from, and tries to view the world in the least judgmental way possible.


Lover of silence. In silence, everything you think comes from you, and you have the freedom to think about whatever you want. This is incredible freedom. Space for the mind to wander.


I don’t sit down to watch TV very often, but my favorite movie genre would be horror.  Note, gore movies are not horror movies. Give me the true stories and plots that make you question reality.
