I’m Gem, the graphic designer and illustrator behind Just My Type – a stationery & design studio based in the Waikato where I create timeless paper goods for clients from around the world.
I graduated with a degree in Visual Communication in 2007 before travelling and working around the world as a graphic designer. It was upon returning to New Zealand and becoming engaged to my amazing man that a passion for putting romance onto paper was ignited and Just My Type was born.
I am now the proud mamma of two wee girls and a baby boy and enjoy exploring our local markets and drinking good coffee when I‘m not busy creating in the studio!
I’ve carefully curated a series of semi-custom stationery designs in my signature modern-classic style, and look forward to customising them to suit your wedding day. I specialise in personal touches and love nothing more than a good wedding monogram or custom venue sketch! I must admit though, my heart belongs to Custom Design. Working with couples on creating a custom stationery suite that reflects them truly is a privilege, and is my favourite way to work. Whether you have an idea in mind or are taking your first steps toward one, contact me about creating the perfect stationery just for you!

Ali and Guy had the most incredible day and so many people commented on your beautiful design work. The whole thing worked so well with the stationery, florals and your backdrop all tying in so well. Thanks again for all your help – we have two more daughters so will be talking to you again one day I hope!
