  • I worked with Phil on a subtle tweak & re-design of The Yoga Lunchbox, a Wordpress website built on a Genesis theme. Phil was a pleasure to work with and I was stoked with the end result. He took a pragmatic and nuanced approach, taking time to investigate thoroughly the current set-up of the website and spending time with me to make sure he understood my needs and requirements. He was flexible and responsive throughout and showed great interpersonal skills. The job was completed on time and on budget, and exceeded my expectations. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend his work to other people.

About Me

Philip Sole profile photo

I’m passionate about great design, both in terms of how things look, and how they work to make a positive impact.  When I’m not working on Web stuff, you’ll find me on my skateboard, hanging out with my crew or my family, here in Auckland or at a sweet NZ beach.  I also co-own a new tea company, Staten Tea.  Do try it!
