Billboard of the Month

November 3, 2013


We have recently started a new business in the Childers QLD area. As builders for 38 years it was very daunting for us to enter into the hospitality industry, being a rural holiday retreat that we wanted to build and run.

Jeanette’s company Design House was recommended to us by the Billboard owner Tayco Outdoor Advertising and although we thought we had an idea of what we wanted, with Jeanette’s input and guidance we have ended up with something we think is outstanding and should draw people to our Rural Retreat. I must say to Jeanette’s credit she did not lose patience with us once, during our mind changing phase, which is quiet refreshing in this day and age.

Our daughter in law is a market manager and also conferred with Jeanette on the design and the direction that she thought we should have. Dealing with marketing all the time our daughter in law was also impressed with the level of ideas and knowledge that Jeanette had, and was impressed with her designs.

We highly recommend Jeanette’s Design Business to anyone thinking about Billboard advertising as this is an area in which we found she had great knowledge.

“I had been toying with the idea of having a Social Media Presence via Facebook for some time. I could see the value and potential but had no idea what to do or where to start.  Friends suggested creating one myself, it is easy they said, well perhaps for them, but not for an over forty with limited IT or marketing skills. I had seen promotions by Design House on my personal Facebook page and contacted Jeanette. Well happy to report what a great experience it has been, very professional, timely and great value. I had a mindset that is was going to be challenging but Jeanette took over and masterfully completed the page. I suggest you have a look, I have received great feedback already on how great it looks.”

The Frog Shop - Fraser Coast

The Frog Shop – Fraser Coast (Business Cards & Shopping Cart)

“Sending out a massive thanks to Jeanette….We run an organic business supplying fruit and veggie boxes, and other organic products to the Wide Bay region and up until now had been using emails and facebook to take orders, so the time had come for us to develop an online store. Our aim for the website was for it to be easy to use, fresh and funky. Jeanette provided us with all of this and we’re so stoked to have it up and running. All our customers are raving about it too. We would recommend Design House to anyone!”
– Celine Louie

“Run by Celine and Kellee, two motivated mums keen to spread the organic word, our aim is to share our passion about good, clean organic food to as many households as possible. We believe organic living can be affordable, and healthy living can be fun.

We’ve also got a team of dedicated helpers who make FROG possible. Without all our amazing, and very generous helpers, FROG wouldn’t be what it is today.

FROG isn’t just a retail business, its a community, and an experience. By choosing to support FROG you’ll not only get yummy food, but you’ll also be joining a large community of like-minded people all working towards healthier bodies, and a healthier planet.

Boxes contain a set mix of fresh seasonal fruit and veggies- Usually around 3-4 types of fruit, and 6-12 types of veggies. These vary weekly depending on availability.”

'Wussup!'  Core Watersportz - Fraser Coast

Logo, Business Cards & Facebook design.

Ever tried Stand Up Paddle Boarding?

I have and it’s Awesome fun!
I’ve been out a couple of times with Michelle and her knowledge and instruction was fantastic! .. she had me standing up and down on the board in no time without falling off and I completed a successful 3km paddle on my second try!
Need a lesson or just some cheap sessions on the water? … Then take advantage of Michelle’s current promo! SAVE 50% – 10  x  1 hour sessions only $220! (normally $440 – only $22 per hr!).

My experience with Jeanette at Design House was exactly as promised. The graphic design process was very collaborative and the result was better than I had envisioned – the design was beautiful, functional and appropriate. The positive reaction to my logo and business cards has been overwhelming. Jeanette strikes a perfect balance between formal professionalism and youthful energy. Every time I had a question Jeanette responded within hours and usually within minutes – night or day. I couldn’t be more delighted. Thank you Jeanette.

The North Pole Shoppe! – North Queensland

The North Pole Shoppe! - North Queensland

Logo, Business Cards, Facebook & Website (shopping cart) design & development.


“Having a daughter like Fontaine is inspiring!!! Pole Fitness has taken the world, and me, by storm, and although, initially, her dream and mine was to open a pole fitness studio in Townsville, her intrastate, interstate and international training programs have instead culminated in the creation of The North Pole Shoppe, an online store that caters to this new regime.
We are pleased to announce our collaboration with Pleaser USA and Royal Leather Works, two organisations who provide the exquisitely designed and manufactured shoes and crash mats necessary to complement our pole fitness enthusiasts around the world.
Although still in the early stages of development our website will soon showcase the products which we know will be as attractive and innovative as the sport itself.
In the meantime, we’d like to welcome you to our Facebook Page and look forward to you sending us your good wishes for our exciting new venture.
Our thanks to Jeanette at Design House for bringing our dream to fruition!”

Having an idea of what you want is all well and good, but when it comes to making that idea come to life, that’s another story! I knew what I wanted my website to look like but it took the magic of Jeanette Maynes to make it happen. Jeanette has the innate ability to decipher your ideas and provide you with a complete package that blends perfectly with your product range. From letterhead to business card to website and beyond, you can’t go past Design House if you want a winning corporate image. Thank you Jeanette.

Stockman Downs Logo Design! – Fraser Coast

February 15, 2012

Stockman Downs Logo Design

“We have utilised the services of Jeanette from Design House on a number of occasions in the past.

We have always been happy with Jeanette’s prompt and efficient service and her attention to listen to our specific needs but to also capture our image and turn that into artwork.  It is for this reason that we did not hesitate to once again call on Jeanette to rebrand our 5 acre subdivision at Moorabinda Drive, Sunshine Acres.  Jeanette’s ideas and colours were refreshing and were right on the money to target our required market.  We required our new logo to be completed urgently and Jeanette certainly delivered results overnight.  We worked together tweaking elements the next day and by the following day, our new logo was done and dusted.  The efficiencies delivered by Jeanette within a small window, meant that there were no delays, enabling me to move on quickly to get my new signage complete and ready for use that weekend.

Our new logo, combined with a new marketing strategy has certainly brought more interest and calls to our agent.  We couldn’t be happier to have new interest generated in sales on the remaining blocks of land.  Thank you Jeanette for your impressive service once again.”

Business Card of the Month – Zumba® Vanessa Mimi Hernandez (Colorado USA)

October 1, 2011

Vanessa found my Zumba® artwork portfolio on my business website when doing a google search and decided to send me an email.

I emailed Vanessa some business card info, she replied and I sent her a proof that same day, we then decided on the best image to use to promote her business, finalised her design, sent it off to print, then the cards travelled by airmail to Colorado in the USA!

Thanks heaps Vanessa, always great to work with someone so professional and switched on!

I have also designed and delivered business cards for Val of the Da ‘Ville Girlz in Fayetteville, North Carolina!

Design House proudly exporting to the USA, the land of TRUMP!

Let me tell you, I had no idea what to do for business cards, or how it worked to get one made. I just e-mailed the type of card I needed, and a photo I wanted on the card. I got one e-mail back asking questions, then sent it back, then VOILA the same day I had a lovely, professional business card tailored just for me! I could not believe how quick and wonderful it turned out, I was just amazed! You will not be disappointed in this company, Design House and Jeanette is the BEST!! She even gave me tips on my Facebook page, who does that?? Keep up the great work, you are truely talented and we are all very fortunate to benefit from your artistry!!
