My name is Nicky Jury, owner and operator of Jury Design. I am a graphic designer and a qualified marketer, with over 20 years’ experience.  


With a strong desire to follow my creative side, in my mid-twenties, I pursued a Commercial Design Course at Waiariki Polytechnic (Toi Ohomai
Institute of Technology) — a stepping stone into the world of graphic design.

I then began working for a busy Tauranga Studio; Butler’s Studio. It was here I quickly learnt what I was good at. Surrounded by talented entrepreneurs and inspiration, I was encouraged to take on my own clients. The next few years were spent building a client base and completing a Marketing Diploma.

I took on the role of CAAP (Community Alcohol Action Programme) Coordinator, set up by Tauranga City Council, to promote the ‘Drive Sober’ message. This led to many years working in the road safety industry; developing, designing, and implementing a wide range of road safety initiatives for Local Authorities, Police, and road safety organisations throughout New Zealand.

Later in my career, I took on the role of Marketing / PR Coordinator at Port of Tauranga. Described as their “brand champion”, I initiated and implemented a range of successful design and marketing projects during my five years with the company.

Since 2010, I have been working full-time at Jury Design. While my main line of work continues to be graphic design and marketing, I am enjoying combining my design skills with my passion for photography, colour and composition — the result is a collection of colourful concepts, suited to textile printing and home wares.

What defines us?
Jury Design is a product of both my experiences and my many years of experience. It has been shaped by the many people I have been lucky enough to cross paths with.

Our clients benefit from being able to liaise with one person throughout the entire job. Your account manager is your graphic designer and your marketing professional — the result is a no-fuss, clear line of communication.

We offer an extensive range of services, in some cases, this has led to us becoming our client’s marketing department, taking care of a large chunk of the company’s marketing and design needs, including:

  • Graphic design
  • Brand management
  • Marketing promotions
  • Advertising
  • Online marketing
  • Web design and maintenance
  • Print (stationery, signage, stickers, promotional products, and more)

Integrity is at the top of our list. Be prepared for us to ask questions and make suggestions. We may not always agree with you, however, you can be assured you will get an honest answer. And, if we think we are not suited to the job, we will direct you to someone who can help.
