Website Design and Development
in Queenstown and Wanaka

Sam Jones – Web Developer

Easy to use. Easy to find.

We build the sites your clients, and Google, will love. Plus you can manage your site content with ease – from your computer, your tablet or your phone.

It can be done.

All website builds include 2 hours of remittance work with you, after site completion, to ensure that you are happy with the finished product.

We love happy clients.

If you’re happy, we’re happy. Have an idea for your website but not sure if it’s difficult, or even possible? Give us a call and we’ll make it happen!

Whether you’re into the technical side of things, or not, we’ll talk with you in terms you understand.

Responsive Designs

Magical Device Balance.

In 2018, 52.2 percent of all website traffic worldwide was generated through mobile phones, up from 50.3 percent in the previous year.

It's all about them

Design should be simple yet engaging, navigation clear, and UX intuitive.


Is Responsive enough?

Sometimes your desktop-focused website just isn’t appropriate for the mobile arena. No problem. We can redirect your mobile visitors to a mobile landing page, or another site altogether. Whatever is most appropriate.


Keep it simple

Mobile users are very goal-oriented. They expect to be able to get what they need, immediately, and on their own terms.

We make your message bold and clear, to maximise user interaction.


It has to be quick!

You bet it does. We use blazingly fast hosting, CDNs and intelligent design to keep your website users on your site.

With their skate fashion store based in Dunedin, Craig and Evie had been dreaming of a new website for quite a while. We integrated their existing point-of-sale software with a brand new Shopify website, hooked in Lay-Buy and automatic shipping through Go Sweet Spot and they are rolling!



Topflite produce and sell a huge range of pet food products. This e-commerce site easily handles some tricky requirements – including different pricing and availability for Wholesalers, Vet Clinics, Pet Stores and the general public. Shipping, payment options and more also change depending on the user role.



The new Fear Factory site had been live in the wild for a little over a month when they called to say that online bookings had more than doubled. That’s a result! With e-commerce and a couple of fun design features this was a fun site to build for fantastic clients. I’m still too scared to try it.



“We provide a stunning range of décor details and larger hire items to add that something special to your wedding day. If you need an extra helping hand on your wedding day, we have a number of setup assistance services that you might find useful.” An e-commerce site designed for quotes, not instant payment.



Queenstown Life was created to write about “People’s Stories First” covering Queenstown, Wanaka and Beyond. Jane tells stories about the brands and businesses you love, makes you laugh, makes your eyes pop and delight you… all in one small but mighty blog.




During the build of this site it grew from just 3 Fijian resorts to nearly 100 resorts across 5 different Pacific locations, with Deals, Cruises and so much more. A fairly simple site, functionality-wise, it is designed primarily as a lead-generator.



Shotover Lodge in Arthurs Point has that real alpine feel to it. They offer long term and short term accommodation, and wanted a clean, new website that fit their cross-branding with QRC.


Built to perform.

Google Analytics

You need to know who’s visiting your website, when, how often… and do they like shoes?

We’ll connect and configure your Analytics account so you’re ready to start tracking, and targetting, visitors.

Speed Testing

Stats tell us that over half of people abandon a website if it takes more than 3 seconds to load.

We employ caching, CDN’s and good hosting to ensure your site is as quick as a fox.


By using a combination of firewalls, plugins, .htaccess edits and backups you can sleep easy!

Our Maintenance Plan makes it easy to keep your website up to date, healthy, and secure.

Changes and Edits

Our front-end editing capabilities mean that if you need to make some changes to your site – it’s a piece of cake.

Need to change some text or a photo? You can do it yourself in just a few minutes.

I approached Sam after getting a great recommendation from a client of his. He understood exactly what I was after and researched ideas for me to make it even better! He just ‘got’ what I wanted in terms of look and functionality and made sure I was set up for future ideas as well. 

Highly recommended if you want an easy, seamless approach to building a fantastic website that suits your needs and brand.
