“Really makes my company stand out.”
“I found Phil to be really easy to work with. He has a lot of knowledge and experience and was able to lead me in the right direction to get the great result we have.
I direct people to my website and when they see it they are pretty much sold. They obviously want to talk to a few people I've done jobs for but as they've seen the quality of what I do online already, they're pretty keen.
My website works well and really makes my company stand out. I would recommend Phil at Brighter Design to anyone who needs the service he provides.”

“We have had approximately $18,000 worth of direct income from the website which is fantastic.”
“We have had 6 jobs so far that I know are a direct result of the website. I also know that over the last 2 months we have had 4 others that are still waiting on confirmation.
Those jobs have ranged from a small $216 job to a massive 2 week site job in Auckland worth $11,000. In total we have had approximately $18,000 worth of direct income from the website which is fantastic. A 600% return on our investment!
Overall in the last year we have increased our client database from approx 150 to 330 customers. That is 180 new customers who have had jobs done by us from January 2009 to February 2010. So we have more than doubled our customer base. WOW! That is a pretty huge result!
We have had other regular feedback from our customers who we have directed to our new website saying that it is extremely professional, user friendly, informative and really shows our company off at our best and we are thrilled with the results and as usual how easy Brighter Design have made the process. As you know I have recommended your team to others and I certainly would continue to do so in the future.”

“The site has already paid for itself with more than
20 jobs from website enquiries in just 4 weeks.”
“The team at Brighter took the time to understand our business and create a website that not only completely met our needs, but exceeded expectations.
Since the site’s launch 4 weeks ago it has already paid for itself with more than 20 jobs resulting from website enquiries. Directing potential clients to the site has also helped secure a booking on most occasions.
We'd highly recommend Brighter Design - an experienced team with very professional results.

“The result is a powerful Brand Strategy that could not have been delivered by many (perhaps, any) of your competitors.”
With regard to The Tranquil Trader, I believe that you managed to understand what I believe is a complex marketplace – trader education. You then went one step further and gained a detailed knowledge of the uniqueness of my offering. This lead to a very clear Brand Strategy which required little further input from myself.
As we moved on to the “fun stuff” I felt that the initial logo work was exceptional – all four concepts were very strong and captured the essence of the brand. This made the final selection/modification process more difficult but your flexibility upon receiving my feedback together with your clarity regarding what wouldn’t work made this an enjoyable and stress-free process. Once the final design was selected Brighter has moved to a more passive role and has delivered this week exactly what I require for the coming months – this a rare feat based on the 100+ services providers I have used in the last 20 years.
In summary, when I took the time last evening to review the various elements of The Tranquil Trader brand against my competitors and my initial vision, I am delighted with all aspects of the brand and believe that my already strong offering will be greatly strengthened by the quality of the work which Brighter has delivered.
Finally, just to reiterate our conversation earlier this week, The Tranquility Project was always going to be a challenge for any branding agency – most of your competitors looked horrified at the prospect of working on the project! You have taken the time to understand a non-traditional marketplace which has great diversity and you have asked the appropriate questions to correctly capture my offering and understand me as a client. The result is a powerful Brand Strategy that, I strongly believe, could not have been delivered by many (perhaps, any) of your competitors. I’m looking forward to seeing the visual representation of the brand next week.
Phil, I’m grateful to you and your team for the quality of the work you have produced thus far and your candid approach to a client with stronger views than communication skills to whom this is more than a generic branding exercise.”
The Tranquility Project and The Tranquil Trader, Arrowtown
“Selling online is now an important part of our business that wasn’t there before.”
“Phil has been a very helpful, knowledgeable and patient problem solver and it was great having his experience and expertise the whole way through the project. Brighter Design has been very helpful to develop the initial brief, pointing out opportunities throughout the development of the site, solving problems on the way as well as giving technical support.
The new website is now an important part of our business that wasn't there before. Not only we are having additional sales of our products, we are also growing our customer database, learning more and more about our customers and consequently about our own product.
We are grateful that Phil has brought this new part of our business to life and it has been a great experience to work with Brighter Design. Please feel free to contact us for further reference.”
Deborah Sweeney, Wellington

Phil took the time and made the effort to understand the nature of our new business and the people involved.The logo developed for PZP was creative, refreshing and had the 'wow' factor, not to mention it met budgets and timeframes!

“They patiently listened to our needs, worked within the budget and double checked with us at every point in the process.”
“We have been extremely happy with not only the service from Brighter, but the inclusive manner in which they worked while constructing our website They patiently listened to our needs and requirements, worked within the budget and double checked with us at every new point in the process.
Brighter gave us a comprehensive map of the site to make adjustments where we felt necessary, moreover they have been a fantastic guide to the intricacies of website development as we are unskilled in this area. I would suggest Brighter to anyone looking for a professional, skilled, user-friendly company to assist them with any of their web or print design needs.”

“The brand workshop was surprisingly useful. It only took a couple of hours and afterwards I had a much clearer picture of the market I was targeting, who my customers were and where my business was going.
