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.

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.
