Welcome to the website for Riley Bathurst Design.
A place for me to show-off what I have done. I’m a bit of a Do It Yourselfer in the kiwi way, working with clients from large to small, creating logos to TV shows.
I’m always up for a challenge and often available to create something for you, your company or your project and I may have already created something that will inspired you, or I may be about to.
Hailing from New Zealand, traveling about the world physically and digitally. I am a geek of design, a lover of action sports and doing my best to live the dream of creating work that I like. This seems to have worked out so far and I’m ready for upcoming opportunities.

Tools I Use
I use Premiere for video editing, I can do Final Cut 7 as well, but the integration of all the other Adobe products means better graphics, motion or still to enhance the overall video and give you a full rounded product.
My CMS (Content Management System) of choice for making websites, It’s easy for anyone to look at the back end and thats what counts for many of my clients so I want to use what works for them. You don’t need to learn computer code, you need to do what you do and have an easy system to work so here it is. Oh and it’s free.
This is pretty much like Photoshop for video, it makes all that extra stuff in the videos, the motion graphics or the cleaning up of a logo, everything to make your video shine.
Laying out big documents or lots of text or setting up templates for you that are easy and fast, I know my way around InDesign and we can create something to get your message out in it together.
The big beast in this game, I’ve been using a few versions now and it may not be perfect but I know my way around a few parts of the program and with a tablet to draw on I can create a whole range of different things whether they have anything to do with a photo or not.
I like Illustrator for working with lines that can scale any size, it’s great for logos, text and layouts. It’s fast, powerful and pretty much the other half to Photoshop for me.
