“I can't thank Foundation Design enough for the work they have done here, very professional, punctual and great design concepts.”

I recently asked Foundation Design to look at what I thought would be a simple update on our two hairdressing websites. One of my main concerns was that we weren't appearing high enough in a Google search. After a few emails and a Skype meeting, Paul got to work and I simply couldn't be happier with the results!

Paul completely rebuilt the site and captured the feel of what we wanted to present perfectly. We now have a more polished, professional feel that adapts to whatever device our clients are viewing them on. Be it a PC, Mac, iPad, Blackberry, Android or whatever, it doesn't matter as the sites will perfectly scale to the device used. Paul's past experience in advertising certainly shows as both sites now link effortlessly to social media Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Also, the ease that a client can now make an online appointment is great!

I can't thank Foundation Design enough for the work they have done here, very professional, punctual and great design concepts. Nothing was too much trouble and they had no problem in taking my staff through "how to do" examples even though we are based in another country. I am using Foundation Design for all our future web and design work, even when I simply change our letterheads, I want Foundation Design to do it and I look forward to the results.

Collaborating with him was very enjoyable as my own ideas for the project were valued and at every stage in the process, he was attentive to tailoring the final result to the Fine Arts context of the project.

Throughout the project, there was always clear communication and Paul took the time to translate the technical languages to ones easier to understand. We have several pages that we need to consistently edit and the Youtube tutorials are much appreciated and above and beyond what we were expecting.

When a few changes occurred during the process to what our initial discussion was, Paul was very accomodating and any additional costs were always clearly passed on.

Great to work with! Foundation Design was great to work with; they explained things in a way I could understand, were flexible when the pressure was on and the information was not all there when it should have been, did whatever it took to get the job done and produced an utterly stellar catalogue at the end of it.

Paul from Foundation Design created the shop for my WordPress website and managed all of the integration with the eCommerce platform, PayPal and NZ Post eShip. I really appreciated his consultative style, but also that he understood and was happy to work with my limited understanding of web platforms.

When a couple of minor issues arose he worked to resolve them quickly and efficiently and even recorded a YouTube tutorial to help me add products to the shop going forward. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Foundation Design to anyone looking for a simple and reliable eCommerce solution.

We decided to take our marketing online and we had some good ideas which we pitched to Paul at Foundation Design, and decided instantly that he was the right person to get our website up and running. Paul was so good at explaining clearly what he thought would work for us and as he has had a lot of experience in the fashion industry we were more than happy to see what ideas he could come up with.

Our boutique is all about quality fashion in a charming atmosphere with customer service second to none and we wanted to keep our customers happy with a fresh and current website that was easy to update. For a busy owner, updating our website is not a task, it's actually exciting thanks to the ease in which we can contact our database, encourage new customers online and show our in-season stock.

So thank you to Paul, he was so easy to work with and has the patience of a saint. His ideas are relevant to our needs and I would recommend Foundation Design to anyone needing design ideas. As he has had a lot of experience in the fashion industry we were more than happy to see what ideas he could come up with.

We were introduced to Paul during the early stages of our company just as we were putting the finishing touches to software we were developing. Starting from a clean slate, Paul took our (very) raw ideas and developed visuals for the user interface of our software and company logo.

We were really pleased with the outcome and commissioned him to create a website concept, business cards, stationery and presentation folders. Paul’s design work gave us the professional and credible look we sought without breaking the bank. Paul was great to work with, was a good listener and wasn’t afraid to steer us away from some preconceived but dated ideas.
