Designhand was formed in late 2005 by David Partis after 20 years experience in the computer industry.
David had spent the last 15 years in management roles, 11 of which were at Hewlett Packard in Auckland and David was starting to question the future of working for a big corporate company and wondering where he would be in 10 years time.
Davids background was electronics, television and computers and after having a small website built for a holiday house in the Ruapehu by a friend, David started tinkering with the site and starting to develop initially an interest as a new found hobby; later in to a passion for web design.
The philosophy of Designhand is to create simple, clear and fast loading websites using up to date design techniques. Through our partner company Website Optimisers we offer a full range of SEO and Adwords services.
David now resides in Cambridge, New Zealand and returns to Auckland, Ruapehu and Melbourne regularly for customers and family. David also delivers training courses through Community Education at Rutherford College and Selwyn College as well as a venue in Melbourne with Web Training Courses.
