windsorcreative voluntrainees

Churches and charities need all the help they can get. And so do young, aspiring graphic designers.
This is why WindsorCreative thought it'd be a great idea to provide a training ground for young volunteers who are willing to be trained in a real-world graphic design studio working on projects for churches and charities. These "voluntrainees" are mentored and trained by WindsorCreative staff and get to use industry-standard software and equipment. And recipient churches and charities receive quality design work at absolutely no cost to them. It's just one of the things we love doing to make a difference.


If you are interested to become a WindsorCreative "voluntrainee" or a recipient church/charity of this programme, e-mail info@windsorcreative.org.nz.

ollie's story

Keen on pursuing a career in graphic design, Ollie is hanging out with WindsorCreative to explore how it's like to work in a design studio. He's tried doing tradie jobs, but he feels drawn to graphic design, so he approached WindsorCreative to see if we can help him get started on that path. With his current situation, he needs all the help he can get, so we took him in.


During his time with us, Ollie started out with no previous experience with Adobe Illustrator and InDesign and has learned to use these software to produce promotional materials for Windsor Park Baptist Church, Life Church Timaru and other churches.


Ollie has now gone off to focus on securing a job that involves some graphic design work where he can apply all the cool stuff he learned from WindsorCreative.

tegan's tale

Tegan and her family shifted to NZ in 2017 from South Africa, but due to immigration complications, she wasn't able to enrol in uni that year. She decided to make the most of her "waiting time" by doing volunteer work for environmental organisations before she came across WindsorCreative's Volunteering and Training Programme.


Learning Adobe software from scratch, Tegan was able to help out South City Baptist Church with their logo—which they are now using—and do illustrations for Small Fries Christian Childcare Centre, among others. Tegan is now finally in uni continuing her product design studies armed with the graphic design skills she learnt from WindsorCreative.
