Brisbane graphic design for print, web and apps

Actually… we’re all about you

We could give you chapter and verse on our 20 plus years of print and digital industry experience. Before Max Gecko became one of Brisbane’s best loved design studios, our team built their own and others’ skills in a whole range of roles. We’ve been senior designers and project managers in major digital and print agencies and we’ve nurtured the next generation of brilliant Brisbane designers at Queensland University of Technology (QUT). However, it’s pretty busy here in the Gecko studio. So instead of talking at length about our astounding left field creativity, reliable right brain business smarts and matchless customer service, we thought we’d give you the short version so we can get back to work.

Three reasons why Brisbane businesses love Max Gecko Design

Our lizard like speed and agility

Like our namesake we’re fast, flexible and we thrive in tough conditions. Max Gecko delivers clever, classy, competitively priced graphic design. What’s more we’re famous for smashing the tightest of deadlines and doing urgent work in an instant.

“We recently engaged Max Gecko and are so glad we did! The quality of work was excellent and right on brief and the turnaround time was very quick. And all for a very reasonable price, with helpful, friendly service. We will be sending a lot more work their way!”

Our love of the long game

We value long-term relationships and we’re inspired by the design challenges our amazing clients throw at us as their businesses grow and evolve. We’re ‘concept to completion’ creatures so we’re with you every step of your branding and marketing adventure. Whether you need business cards or brochures, an awesomely responsive website or anything in between, we’ve got your back.

“I have been working with Max Gecko for over a year on weekly basis. They are extremely reliable, professional and produce fantastic designs! It’s a pleasure working with Max Gecko and they are a pivotal partner of our business.”

Our sizable advantage

We’re big enough to manage loads of complex graphic design projects with the technical and creative firepower you’d expect from a larger agency. We’re also small enough to give you the 150% personalised service you’d expect from a boutique graphic design studio.

“Sue grasped exactly the look and feel we wanted to create for our new business after a very short briefing.  The quality of her work beats that of high-end, big name consultancies – all for an affordable price point.”

What our clients have to say about us…

No fuss, no flap, just fabulous …

I don’t want to write this testimonial. Why? Because I want to keep Sue all to myself. She is quite literally, without doubt, no jokes, the best designer I have ever worked with. And I’ve worked with a few. Not just for her design skill – which is impeccable, but for her approachability, her efficiency and her understanding. She just gets it and gets on with it. No fuss, no flap, just fabulous designs time after time. She’s an absolute gem!

My secret weapon …

Sue from Max Gecko is an exceptional, naturally talented graphic designer. She has an eye for detail and an unrelenting work ethic. Sue has looked after the top-tier clients of NAKED Print for more than six years now. I use Sue for my personal design projects as well.

If you want a graphic designer who’ll go the extra mile, is very patient and produces exceptional graphic design, you can’t go past Sue at Max Gecko. And if you’re another printing company, you’ve just discovered one of my secret weapons for exceeding client expectations.

I can’t recommend Sue high enough.

We have collaborated together on a number of projects and have valued Sue’s creative input which has allowed us to take our resources and publications to the next level.

Creativity and confidence…

I’ve used Sue Waterson as a graphic designer for, a dynamic new website for the business, education and career management of health industry professionals. Sue instantly understood our target market and was able to create logos, branded content and website graphics for the site with ease, creativity and confidence. She’s on time, on budget and comes up with creative solutions to all of our content issues. We love Sue!

Kristen Souvlis

Exceeded expectations…

Sue was recommended to me and the recommendations undersold her ability to grasp a brief and deliver an outcome that exceeded expectations. Industrial subjects can cause difficulties for many graphic artists but Sue has invariably understood the brief and produced an outcome that more than satisfied the client. Over 8 years she has given me no cause to look elsewhere and many reasons to commend her services to others.
