Jed’s Coffee Co. 

Another Clever Kiwi Idea. 100% Fresh NZ Roasted Coffee in easy-to-use single serve Bean Bags.

The clever pyramid shape tricks your cup into thinking it is a plunger. It then brews the perfect cup of coffee! And because we know you’ll want to take this everywhere – each bag is individually sealed to go where you do. The path to perfection starts with the clever shape of the Bean Bag, which lets the fresh coffee brew like it does in a plunger. The secret is the two squeezes with a good brew in between.

Kura Carpenter Design

‘Designing covers that work for writers and their readers’

Kura has donated her time and skills in designing the 2017 NZ Book Festival a new poster. Thanks to Phantom Billstickers you’ll see it attached to walls in the areas near the venue, Mt Eden War Memorial Hall on Dominion Rd, Mt Eden.

I’m Kura Carpenter a New Zealand Writer and Book Cover Designer based in the small but perfectly formed coastal city of Dunedin. I’m available for Graphic Design work. If you have a book that needs a cover, please read on: 

When it comes to the creations of Covers I have found there are two types of authors: those who know exactly what they want, and those who aren’t sure. I’m happy to work with either.
Whether you know exactly what you want, or you want me to provide a concept for your cover as well, the process begins with discussions. It’s that simple, just get hold of me via my website.
