Obsidian New Zealand - Tours by Jaya Mangalam Gibson

My good friend and amazing entrepreneur Mike Stearne asked me to create a brand for his new luxury private tours company. It was a real fun project to work on. You can check out his website here: www.obsidian.tours

Thanks for the shout out Mike!

I want to say a huge thank you to Jaya Gibson for all the amazing work he’s done on my Obsidian design and artwork. He’s fast, fancy and thoroughly professional. Check out his other work here!

South Alive Urban Regeneration Project by Jaya Mangalam Gibson

South Alive is an urban rejuvenation project, led by the community, with the goal of identifying the best possible future for South Invercargill and ways to make it happen.

I'm really proud to have been the design lead on this amazing project. It landed on my lap in April 2016 with an extremely short deadline and non-existent budget. Now over a year later the centre has been built and is beginning stage 2 of its development.


Gao Zhisheng To Serve Three Year Prison Sentence by Jaya Mangalam Gibson

The high-profile and galvanizing Chinese human rights figure Gao Zhisheng, held by Chinese security forces almost continually since late 2006, has been officially sentenced to prison for three years. You can read the full story here at The Epoch Times:


I had the honour of designing Gao's book 'A China More Just', the cover of which you can see above. It tells of his remarkable life; born and raised in a cave with only the stars to tell time, Gao Zhisheng rose from poverty to become China's most important lawyer who took on the CCP fighting for the rights of Chinese citizens.

You can purchase his book on Amazon:
