KIWISCOT HEALTH & WELLNESS – WEBSITE DESIGN
“Fig Tree Design Studio was recommended to Mark by a bigger company who didn’t deal with small business web design…how fortunate for us! Wendy has been fantastic to deal with from the outset. She knew exactly what we were after, was extremely patient and tolerant of the necessary restrictions that our website required…and she just went that extra mile for us. If you want a professional job done but with that personal touch, then you need look no further than Wendy at Fig Tree Design Studio, we couldn’t recommend her highly enough!”

TIMBER FACED GUARD RAILS – WEBSITE DESIGN
“Thank you very much for the great website you have created for Timber Faced Guardrail. It has only been viewable for 4 weeks but already it has been instrumental in securing a sizable contract. The aim of the new website was to quickly and clearly inform and clarify my product for those who access it. It has definitely achieved that. Your input was considerable but the website was undertaken very quickly. Thank you again and I am sure we will keep in touch when new photos and information is to be added”

COTTAGE MEWS MOTEL TAUPO – WEBSITE RE-DESIGN
“We discovered Fig Tree Design online when searching for a designer to revamp our website. We needed someone who could take on board the old style character of our motel, Cottage Mews, but update us as well. Taupo and Nelson are a long way apart and we never met Wendy face-to-face, but she listened to our ideas and added to them to create a site we are really proud of. Her client focus and communication with us were outstanding. The process was smooth and the site came together very quickly. We are getting great feedback and we’re excited to see how the new site works for us”
JULIE SLEE – COTTAGE MEWS MOTEL
BRIGHTWATER GOLD SAFFRON – WEBSITE RE-DESIGN
“Before I talked to Wendy, I knew our website was out of date and not attracting that many vistors but I was not sure how to improve it. Wendy listened to our requirements and after our initial discussion, came up with some really creative ideas that were spot on for our website. I was very impressed how quickly Wendy created the initial design.
The final website only needed a few tweaks to achieve a great looking website that functioned well. To top it off, Wendy is very knowledgeable on the internal workings of the Web and did a fantastic job at improving our listing on the main search engines. Our ranking on Google went from somewhere below page 7 to number 3 on page 1.”

A AND A SNACKS – WEBSITE RE-DESIGN

We found it very easy to work with Wendy and the end result is great. People have complemented us on our website since.”

“Fig Tree Design delivered on every front! I was kept fully informed throughout the design process; communication was consistently open and friendly, inviting client contribution at every stage.
Wendy was a pleasure to work with – she interpreted the brief brilliantly and with remarkable perception, adding expertise and implementing her creativity to deliver a fantastic end product that far exceeded our expectation”
SIMONE HENBREY – MELROSE HISTORIC HOUSE
INDIGO STYLE – WEBSITE RE-DESIGN
“My original website was “stuck in a website rut” and needed a makeover, and while I had already talked to my then current designers, they showed little interest in helping me vamp it up. It just so happened at that time I met Wendy at an expo I was exhibiting at and we got talking. This first conversation with Wendy made me feel comfortable enough to look at it a little further – and the rest is history – a fantastic new website.
Why I made the switch was simple. Wendy listened to what I was thinking, made suggestions on what she could do, and then sent me some ideas through so I could see her thoughts. All I had to do was send her the script and viola!!! A brand new redesigned website – just how I had imagined it!! Thanks Wendy, you have done an amazing job, in a short period of time. You have this friendly and professional way that made me comfortable to trust you with an important part of my business, and I am extremely happy with my new and improved website – I have had many comments already!

BISLEY HEIGHTS BOUTIQUE ACCOMMODATION – WEBSITE, LOGO AND RACK CARD DESIGN
“I have recently used the services of Wendy Alessi from Fig Tree Design Studio to set up a website and design a logo for my new guest accommodation venture.
From our first meeting I found Wendy had great ideas and put them to me in a clear and concise manner. She was able to explain technical details in an easy to understand way and presented me with a well set out plan and costing for the project. This was achieved with flexibility and a relaxed and pleasant manner.
Wendy listened to and discussed my ideas and there was consultation at every stage of the design process. The end result is a beautiful and professionaly designed website with all the appropriate search engines in place. I have no hesitation recommending Fig Tree Design Studio for a complete web design project”

THE BLACK CAB COMPANY – WEBSITE RE-DESIGN
“Wendy at Fig Tree Design Studio recently took on the task of overhauling my website, which was a very basic site that I had created myself. I had no design idea in mind and my instructions were limited: I just wanted a new professional looking website and I wanted to get more hits through various search engines.
Wendy has exceeded all expectations – I’m so proud of my new website. It is beautiful! It even replicates the quirky personality of my business. Also, she has done a fantastic job of the search engine upgrade and I am seeing more enquiries filter through than usual.
I would thoroughly recommend Fig Tree Design as I have found the whole process very easy, the results are superb, and as an added benefit – it was extremely cost effective, especially compared to other quotes I received to undertake the same task”
MARIANNE HART-BIGGS – THE BLACK CAB COMPANY
D M HAMPTON ARTIST – WEBSITE DESIGN
“We have recently had a website designed by Fig Tree Design. The decision to have our own website was a big one and we really wanted it to be a success. We started out by emailing a few sites from the internet. I looked at their websites and thought if they are eye catching, inviting and easy to get around then that’s who I want to design ours. That kicked out a lot to start with. Some of them seemed a bit big and sterile sounding and I thought it was a scary enough process without feeling like just another number. Others just had pick from this or that option and it seemed like it was all about them getting you through the system as quickly as possible.
That is where Fig Tree Design differs from the rest, they are about doing the very best they can for you and your business. We really wanted someone who would take the time to find out about our business and would listen to what we wanted and what our business needed. When Wendy rang me after I sent her an email query, I just knew we had found a company who was willing to listen to our requirements and design a site to suit our business, with the personal touch which we find important in the world today.
We really couldn’t have asked for more. Wendy has been fantastic, she was so friendly and helpful and made the whole process a very easy and enjoyable experience. We absolutely love the website and it is perfect for us in every way possible. Some of the other web designers we contacted would have designed the site and then left us out in the cold, but with Wendy, the ongoing support and help is amazing.
We would confidently recommend Fig Tree Design to anyone wanting a new website or their old website ”

MO VIRANI – PHYSIOTHERAPIST – WEBSITE, LOGO AND BUSINESS CARD DESIGN
“I had specific goals in mind when I asked Wendy to create a website for me. I wanted to decrease my yellow pages advertising budget and add value for my clients by introducing and interactive online presence for my clinic. I wanted some special features and unique design variations for my website and Wendy has exceeded my expectations in this regard.
Her knowledge and expertise with selecting a Domain Name, Search Engine Optimisation and her artistic flair have been invaluable to the overall process.”

SWEET AS CAFE – WEBSITE DESIGN
“I have recently worked with Fig Tree Design Studio by asking them to design and develop a new website for my Nelson Cafe. I met with Wendy to discuss my project and I supplied menus and images to be used on the website. Fig Tree Design kept in regular contact with me throughout the design process and I was able to discuss ideas and give feedback at any stage.
The new website mirrors the look and feel of my cafe and gives easy to navigate information to my customers. I am very happy with the work Fig Tree Design Studio has done and would not hesitate to recommend them to others.”

ZOOMLILY JEWELLERY – WEBSITE, BUSINESS CARD AND BOOKMARK DESIGN
“The profile of my jewellery business has been raised substantially due to Wendy’s development of my website. She has an innate ability to put together a site that reflects exactly what one wants their business to portray.
I did not have to expend large amounts of time and energy into developing a vision for my website; she was able to take the ideas I had expressed in the initial profile and come up with a concept that was exactly as I had envisaged. From putting together colour and images that work, to text and tying together the whole package, I have been extremely impressed with Fig Tree Design”
