Customer Testimonials

A list of tesimonials from our clients

The Ruapehu District Council recently engaged the services of Designhand to undertake a rebuild project of our website. After meeting David we felt confident he had the experience and commitment to take on the project. He worked well with our staff, and was thorough with respect to project timelines and deadlines and we are very pleased with the results.

We are happy to recommend Designhand to any business undertaking a web development project.

David Hammond (Chief Executive – Ruapehu District Council)


We are extremely pleased with our new site. Building our new site was a job I had been putting off until the last possible minute as I knew it was not going to be a simple task. The complexities and time involved in developing what we needed, I believed was going to be just too hard.

David was able to interpret what was required, has developed a fantastic site which our customers love, and has substantially increased our business. He has achieved this with minimal interruption to our business. David and his team have been very professional and a pleasure to work with. I would definitely recommend their services.

My name is Colleen Kendall and I own a private tuition business in Napier called In-home Tuition Limited. As part of a recent marketing and promotional strategy for my business, I engaged David to build me a website to showcase my skills, subjects and point of difference to the Napier community.

David showed a keen interest in my business approach and through this was able to accurately match a style and design to best portray the uniqueness of my business. He enabled me to be a part of the design process by supporting any suggestions on themes, images and colours I had in the design process. Along with this, he had access to an associate who was able to work on an exciting logo and company name graphics that tied in with the overall website design.

Overall, I believe David’s continued success as a web designer is due to his willingness to understand and interpret the customer’s needs and follow through with a website that draws in customers through the ever growing internet platform. The website David designed for me has enabled me to grow my business more successfully within a very short time.

With my concept and design you have put together a site that I am very pleased with - and your friendly enthusiasm for the project has made my experience of the process a pleasant one. Thank you

I have found working with David Partis very easy and rewarding. He has encouraged me to use my skills to design my website but supported me in technical areas where I lack the knowledge and experience. I like having control over how my product is presented and at times can be particular about small details. David appreciated this and patiently supported me as I reworked the details on my website. I never had the feeling he wanted to take over my work or that he was looking to upsell his product for his own financial gain. Rather he went out of his way to save me money by encouraging me to do as much of the work as I could. I am really happy with how my site has turned out, and in knowing that if there are any difficulties he is just a phone call away.

I recommend Davids services to everyone.

It is with pleasure that I write this testimonial for David Partis and his company Designhand Ltd. We came into contact with David whilst we were in the early stages of developing our company All About Buggies Ltd and David provided us with some sound advice and assistance with regards to the setup of our website and logo. We found David extremely pleasant to deal with and enjoyed his nothing is a problem attitude, he has a wealth of knowledge that he is only too happy to share. Even though our website has been completed David is still easily contactable and is only too pleased to help out when he can.

We have no hesitation in recommending Designhand Ltd to any of our friends, customers and colleagues that require assistance with websites.

We recently shifted our business to new premises with rebranding of all media. We wanted to reflect this new contempory image through our web presence. David and the team at Designhand listened closely to all my ideas adding useful suggestions and directing me to view other web designs that would work with our hosting.

They were extremely easy to deal with, approachable, relaxed but direct when needing to establish time lines. It was very clear that they would not be happy until I was completely satisfied with the final product. Over several meetings and e-mail discussions, the end result is excellent and yet I am sure that my webpage will continue to evolve with their assistance.

We were lucky enough to have David help us with re designing our website which was already formed but needed a lot of work. We have found David to be extremely helpful in guiding us through this process. He explained everything in a very simple manner for us who know very little about computers and has encouraged and taught us to have the confidence to manage our own website which is something we never thought we could do.

He has always been just a email away and his patience is endless. We will continue our great relationship with David as our business grows. We highly recommend David to anyone thinking about setting up or making changes to their website.

I was very pleased with the service I received when I asked Desighand to design and build my web site.

The work was done professionally and completed at the agreed dead line. I would be happy to go on using them for all my web requirements in the future.

David kindly offered to design and host a web site for the Otunui Reunion.

Before attending several of our meetings he had visited Otunui and formed the basic design of the site complete with photos he had taken to work into the banner.

David filled us with enthusiasm for a web site to promote our reunion. He provided guidelines as to what we would require and as we produced the information the finished pages appeared on the site. Any suggestions we made were quickly worked into the pages.

David was a pleasure to work with, easy to contact and we are delighted with the finished site.

Our group would like to thank David for his generosity and for sharing his knowledge and skills with us.
