How Can I Help?

Whether you’re a retailer needing a complimentary online store, or a blogger looking to build an audience, I can build you a personalised website that will convey your unique message, and engage with your audience. Let’s create value for your organisation!

My services can be very broad, or specific, depending on your needs. They range from helping to develop your brand and online business strategy, to designing logos, email templates, information architecture, site design, and site development.

I’m a designer, and developer, based in Auckland, New Zealand. Design and development roles are often separated in the website industry. Having both covered can really improve the site building process. It simplifies communication, and ensures coherence between the vision and the outcome.

Website Platforms

Website platforms like Shopify, WordPress, and Squarespace, make life easier for a few main reasons, which I mention below.  Sites built on platforms are not limited to ‘cookie-cutter’ results.  They allow access to the code that makes up your site, and provide a platform for highly customised and unique results when used to their potential.

  • 1.

    They provide user-friendly “back-ends” for site administration, so you can manage your own site using a streamlined and intuitive user interface.
  • 2.

    They allow you to easily extend the functionality of your site by installing ready-made plugins or apps.
  • 3.

    They make site development faster and easier, saving you time and money.

Preferred Platforms

The three platforms I’ve mentioned are my preferred choices for new site builds.  But, I also work with others like Joomla, Blogger, and Big Cartel.  Check out some basic info about my preferred platforms below. I’ll be there every step of the way to get you up and running with the platform, and custom code, best suited to your needs.

  • Shopify is an affordable, sleekly designed e-commerce platform, which I believe to be the best in it’s class. Sign up using the links on this page (with me as your referal partner) and receive up to $100 off your final invoice.
  • Wordpress is a fully fledged Content Management System (CMS) with a huge variety of free, and paid, themes and plugins. You can do just about anything with Wordpress.
  • Squarespace is a very affordable subscription based platform that provides some ultra-modern and sleekly designed themes. It’s great if you’re after a simple informational site, and features a novice-friendly content editing system.

Other Tools I Use

  • Google Analytics is a free tool used to track statistics about your site’s performance. If you’re serious about nurturing and understanding the growth of your site this is an essential tool.
  • Mailchimp is a well designed and easy to use email campaign management system. If you want to have a newsletter, or other email list, and you want to get great stats on campaign results, Mailchimp is an excellent tool.
  • I use Adobe creative suite products, including Photoshop and Illustrator, to create site designs, logos, icons, photography and other assets.
