About Astonish Me Creative

I’m an experienced web designer happily based in Nelson, New Zealand. I specialise in building high performance wordpress websites. This requires a delicate balance between technical knowledge and creative flair.

WordPress is regarded as the best & most popular website platform on the planet and has all sorts of great features that help google push your site to the top of the pile so it get’s seen by your customers.

A video featuring music composed in my Recording Studio adds to the X factor. Most filmmakers use stock audio clips – which all sound the same after a while! (yawn) Your video deserves to have interesting custom made music.

Let me tune up your Mailchimp mailing list newsletters and get them looking sharp. With a Degree in Education I can teach anyone you how to do it yourself. Or I can manage your website for you.

What spins my wheels?

I love good design. I hold a BA/B Tch (double degree) majoring in Visual Arts and Graphic design.

In 2004 I completed my degrees including a thesis titled “Harnessing Creativity”. This allows me to understand the creative process at a very high level. I know how to generate original material and structure the process in a way that is efficient and gets a stunning result every time.

There’s more to good design than simply making something look good. It needs to function even better. That’s what makes my wheels spin!

When I’m not editing footage, or building websites I’m out mtn biking in the hills above Nelson with my dog Micky, on weekends I enjoy helping out at my church and love encouraging people to be their best.

“Working with Bryce 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

“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.”
