Helping businesses to stand out from the crowd

Volta Design is all about empowering the companies that it works with through good design and good branding.Clear and consistent branding helps companies stand out above the crowd, but many business owners don’t know where to begin Volta Design can help with that.
The happy two-year-old child of Scott and Dani Montauban, Nelson-based Volta Design’s roots thread through a heritage in the print industry and was born from a passion for the finished product.
Operating Speedy Print, Scott and Dani saw many files coming in for print that looked great on screen but the designer hadn’t considered how it would look in practical implementation in print.
A logo might look bright and beautiful on screen but print uses a different colour gamut and if the designers are not experienced in that field it may look dull and flat.
“We wanted to have a design firm that was really good at working with the client’s brand right across the board,” says Dani.
“It wasn’t just about looking good on screen – it was also about how it would look on the tee shirt, paper or the side of a vehicle.
We felt a lot of companies brands weren’t being presented as well as they could have.”
Partnering with Speedy Print provides Volta with the advantage of ensuring all of its designers are experienced in the print industry and understand the print processes to achieve a high quality product for their client.
Volta Design operates throughout New Zealand and, in addition to Scott and Dani has a team of two highly skilled graphic designers and one photographer.
“It was important for us to have a photographer in the business, because you can have a really nicely designed brochure but if the photos don’t present the same quality it will bring it down.”
Three key values underpin the customer experience with Volta Design – team, partnering and excellence.
In building a team with different but complementary skill sets and operating methods, clients are presented with a well-equipped creative team ensuring a well thought through branding strategy.
Partnering is about subcontracting to specialists who can do aspects of a creative project better than Volta Design does, ensuring the client always receives the highest quality finish.
“The third is Excellence. We don’t use free photos, free fonts—anything like that—we make sure we pay for the best resources.”
Reflecting on the importance of good branding, Dani says that branding is everywhere.“Often the ignored powerhouse of business, branding influences the way that you are viewed, the people you reach and even your success.

“It’s all very well paying someone to design a really nice logo but if the business is messy or the colours are dreary how does the customer feel about the overall image you are presenting.
“We believe in the work we do and care about our clients work. The reason we equip and resource the team they way we do is because we believe in producing the best for our clients.”
