Our Team

Vicki Bjerring

Creative Director

Vicki Bjerring began her career in New Zealand back in 1991. Her love of beautiful things led her to working with clients to produce marketing material that was visually appealing.

Vicki's career began originally working in pharmacy specialising in photographics, and she relished in creating eye catching window and counter displays. This was her first insight into marketing and design. Vicki then went on to work for NZ Post, where she managed a customer service team.

Following a family move, Vicki went back into the Pharmacy industry, but this time working as sales and marketing support in the Pharmaceutical Wholesaling industry. Through this role, Vicki felt an urge to pursue graphic design. Her career and subsequent move to Auckland, saw Vicki successfully progress to Editor of a national Pharmaceutical Wholesaling magazine.

In 2006, Vicki and her family moved to Australia. It was after this move that Vicki took the plunge and completed her formal design qualifications. After gaining valuable experience in the printing industry, Vicki began VB Designs and that's when her passion really flourished. Having free reign on design pieces for clients provided Vicki with the confidence to grow her small business into a team of 5 designers and work with clients across Australia and New Zealand.

Achieving work/life balance is something Vicki constantly strives to achieve, juggling a business and family, and this combined with Vicki's dream of creating her own magazine, has lead her to create BizLifeMag along with networking queen and business colleague, Janet Culpitt.

When she is not working, you'll find Vicki rocking out to Katy Perry with her eldest daughter or being active outside with her youngest.

Being a part of the VB Designs team is an important and refreshing part of my work life. I love the variety and quality of design projects which enable me to use my broad expertise to achieve some amazing outcomes.  I am constantly challenged and constantly learning, keeping abreast with current design trends and technology. Being a VB Design team member is extremely rewarding and refreshingly challenging. I love my job!

Where do we find you when you're not working?
When I'm not being creative in the studio, I am being creative in the garden or in the kitchen. I also love photography. People say I have a good sense of humour and I talk too much, but that's okay because I am also good at multi tasking! I am a proud Mum of pigeon pair teens, a "Boxing Babe" and a known workaholic.

Paul Thomas
Vicki and her team are a pleasure to work with. It's not only the eye catching and innovative design they come up with, but the personal touch, with regular communications and updates to ensure what we receive is exactly what we want. They go over and above what's asked of them, to provide a truly professional product.
