Gisborne's creative art and design agency

Design and Print With 20 years of experience in the world of print there is nothing we can not achieve – from high-end coffee-table publications to letterbox flyers.

DLE Brochures The quality 3-fold DLE brochure is our speciality. We have designed and printed hundreds of 3-fold brochures for our extensive list of clients locally and nationally. What gives Design Arts the edge over our competitors is the mix of design, photography plus journalism. Gray Clapham’s library of great Gisborne and commercial images is available for illustration - and we will also venture out and take photographs especially for the job.

Words It is not all about design! The copy, or the editorial used in the brochure is of huge importance – we call on our journalism, advertising and creative writing skills to make brochures that really communicate.

Booklets, Magazines and Guides We print booklets, prospectuses and guides for many needs. We have designed books for Maui Campervans, the city of Cairns, Norfolk Island and Tourism New Zealand. Plus we design and print calendars, books and brochures promoting the Gisborne region.

Business Cards The best deals around. We are print brokers. We access the best and most cost-effective print solution for every job.

The Surfing Photography of Logan Murray


"Gray Clapham worked as my editorial consultant, graphic designer, and printing broker to make my vision of a top end coffee table book to become a reality. Gray provided the expertise, professional contacts and experience in the production of a successful book, which I did not have to enable a dream to become reality." LOGAN MURRAY

Eastwoodhill: The Colours of an Arboretum


"Eastwoodhill: The Colours of an Arboretum contains a collection of photographs taken by members of the Gisborne Camera Club over a twelve month period. I approached Gray Clapham of Design Arts, Gisborne, at the outset and he handled the design, layout and printing. I was very impressed throughout the process by his technical skills, his artistic input and his ability to produce a very high quality book on time and within budget."
