Sarah Nyssen – Owner of


“Bryce at Astonish Me Creative worked on my first website as a singer songwriter. From the start, I was struck by Bryce’s positive energy and attitude. He put a remarkable amount of time and attention into ensuring that my branding was not only eye catching, but in line with my sound, biography, and aspirations as a songwriter. The task was not simple, as I had to bridge two very different worlds artistically – Indian and Western. Bryce found exactly the right balance in creating my breathtaking website, and paid tremendous attention to detail. He worked on my CD artwork as well, and came up with a gorgeous concept there. I would highly recommend AstonishMe Creative for their artistry, responsiveness, and above all, commitment and investment in what they deliver and who they work with.”

Anjali Ray – Singer/songwriter USA 


“When someone does a design/creative job for me I usually get frustrated because I am fussy, I can see in my minds eye what I want but I don’t have the technical or communicative ability to get it across. However Bryce has both technical and creative abilities along with the patience of a good teacher, but he also has a “sixth sense” and knows when to “shepherd” a project and when to lead it. I was therefore delighted with the results, found him easy and fair to work with and relieved he has the same tenacity as I do to see a job done well, all the way through from beginning to end, no matter what it takes. I therefore can confidently recommend him to you.”

Amberli Hartwell – Personal life coach & director at Life Design.


“Bryce is talented, personable and proactive. He has great ideas and is genuine in his enthusiasm and commitment to getting the very best result for me as his client. If you’re looking for a website, a graphic designer, or a photographer, he’s your guy.”

Jacquie Walters – Walters PR


“Working with Bryce Wastney designing my company image has been an absolute pleasure. I run a building company  based in Broome, Western Australia while at the time Bryce was based in Nelson, New Zealand. The distance and time zone differences were never an issue. The flair, and creativeness that Bryce displayed throughout this process has produced a company profile that I am very proud of and feel it is second to none. I constantly receive positive comments on something that people rarely comment on. It has lifted the perception of professionalism that is now simply produced in every contact with potential customers or suppliers.”

Mike Cornelissen – Director of Dry Hills Construction


“They listened to my needs, requirements & meticulously put the whole puzzle together. I am totally satisfied with the manner in which they conducted themselves, I find this level of professionalism a ‘breath of fresh air’ not only in website construction but  in customer service generally. Without any hesitation I totally  recommend them to all in need of graphic design & website construction.”

Dennis Klopper  NZ Award Winning Classical Pianist


“They say success won’t happen overnight but it will happen & behind every good Cd or musician is a team of people that believe in the artist. Bryce was one of those people, he encouraged & gently nudged me at a time I was grief stricken after a friend’s tragic death. He listened to my ideas & crafted the CD cover in a way that would be user friendly for both CD graphics and website. His knowledge, skills, empathy & expertise were greatly appreciated in making a somewhat daunting process much simpler.  I learned the less is more always works best & it was awesome to have a fellow musician who understands the challenges we face as independent artists with creative control & maintaining the integrity of our message.”
