Senior designer Jodi Wicksteed has been an educational designer for the last 15 years. She has a vast knowledge around designing and developing both print and digital resources for teachers, students, families, communities, and adult learners, in both New Zealand and international markets.

While Jodi’s previous design work has been with Learning Media, her resume includes a role as manager of public education materials and a design position at Saatchi and Saatchi.

Jodi is a dedicated, loyal, reliable, creative, strategic designer who is passionate about making a difference to peoples lives. She has valued the opportunity to do this through the empowerment of education.

As well as her design pursuits, Jodi enjoys a busy life built around her husband Regan and their darling girl Ayda. Jodi believes in looking after herself and really enjoys participating in Crossfit.


Senior designer Liz Tui Morris has 16 years’ experience in educational design. She has developed a sound knowledge of appropriate design for resources and their intended audiences.

Educational design is how Liz chooses to make a “difference”, small as it may be. She values this opportunity immensely and is grateful she can contribute to something bigger than herself.

Liz’s top priority in life is her family. She and her husband Mike have two beautiful, raucous boys, Alisana and Ieremia. The most recent addition to the family and the other “girl” in the house is Tui, a Labradoodle/French Bulldog cross pup. They are an active family and choose to keep healthy and spend some quality time together through rugby, basketball, athletics and Crossfit.
