Lovely to meet you!


I'm Crissie Rodda, an illustrator + print designer based in the rolling rural countryside of Waikato, New Zealand. I design for + love collaborating with wonderful companies, brands + creative individuals from all over the world.

Inspired by eclectic interiors, fashion, mid century design + my antipodean roots, I create artwork best known for its rich, quirky colour palettes + playful patterns.

In my down time you'll usually find me head down in home + design magazines, practicing my embroidery skills, listening to music or exploring the great New Zealand outdoors with my husband + our three gorgeous girls.
