Greg Straight

Greg Straight - New Zealand based illustrator

From camper vans and t-shirts to the front windows of McDonalds and Mr Men characters, Greg Straight’s graphical illustrations bring life, colour and happiness to all his client's projects, and top brands around the world turn to him for their campaigns.
While the New Zealand-based artist’s work features bold shapes, he adds little details to draw viewers in, taking inspiration from the surf, trips to the beach and nature. Born in England, Greg emigrated to New Zealand with his family aged nine. He has a Bachelor degree from the Elam School of Fine Arts at the University of Auckland, and a diploma in design from the Auckland University of Technology.


Every new project starts with a sketch on paper. The work then migrates over to the desktop, where he develops it further in Illustrator, which is ideal for the basic forms and limited colour palettes that Greg likes to use.


Greg’s main style is colourful and fun, with clean lines and a modern, geometric feel to it. Though most of his images are clear and direct, he also introduces smaller elements and icons, patterns and textures, to give them more depth.

Greg’s clients include Warner Music, Nespresso, McDonalds, Microsoft, Greenpeace, Air New Zealand, The Telegraph, Barnardos and Usbourne Books.
We’ve loved working with Greg on Matua Wines. His understanding of the brief and our brand has meant he’s delivered innovative and exciting creative across a multitude of projects. He’s a great professional and has added a unique look to our work. We couldn’t recommend him highly enough.

Greg was fantastic to work with. Professional yet personal, he clearly understood the brief and received feedback with a great attitude. We really enjoyed collaborating with Greg to create great work and look forward to the day we can work together again

Nicole van Rijen, Cream Crew
It was great to have the opportunity to work with Greg on the Chelsea Golden Syrup collectors tin packaging. I was impressed by Greg’s ability to interpret our brand vision, and the work he produced was excellent. We also really appreciated the extra mile Greg went to promote the packaging at media events. Without hesitation I can recommend Greg – he’s fast, flexible and friendly. Thanks Greg. (and we won a Silver in the Best Awards with this packaging!)
Tracey McKay, Senior Brand Manager, NZ Sugar Company Ltd
We didn’t give Greg much of a brief other than: ‘these illustrations have to be excellent!’… We were not disappointed. He provided stunning artwork and exceeded our expectations
