Hi, my name is Bryce. I grew up designing and building things. I enjoy the challenge of balancing visual appeal and function. I write weekly articles and do photography for the Uniquely Nelson website. Writing is something I really enjoy.
In 2004 I completed my BA/B Tch (double degree) majoring in Visual Arts, Graphic design and Education. I have always worked in the creative lane. I’m also a qualified Boat Builder, which required me to think creatively every day and this has influenced my approach to building websites, writing for magazines, writing music and problem solving in general.
I love teaching my clients how to use their websites to get the maximum return on their investment.
A website that’s not being regularly updated is like having a shop with the lights turned off. By using the powerful blog features for feeding out new information significantly helps your website get seen.
The personal touch
The New Zealand based hosting I use is brilliant and my clients love it. I work closely with Slightly Different Ltd which offer the best tech support, technical advice and smooth hassle-free hosting. We enjoy regular mountain bike adventures. He has become a great friend and mentor to me over the years.
The local N.M.I.T Visual Arts and Digital Media Department invited me to serve on the Curriculum advisory panel, which I enjoy giving back to my local community by helping the tutors deliver industry-relevant course content. I remember my first year at University, so it feels great being able to have some input and help inspire the students to do their best and prepare them for the industry when they graduate.
When I’m not working online I’m out mountain biking in the hills above Nelson with my dog Micky. On the weekends, I enjoy hitting the gym and making new music in my recording studio. Why don’t you have a sneaky listen? www.brycewastney.com
“I cannot recommend Bryce enough for your website building or updates. He upgraded my 2 websites and they are both now super flash and getting much more traffic. Bryce is a great guy to work with and it took the pressure off me to do this, definitely 5 stars”
“To be honest, I can’t thank you enough for what you’ve created. The journey has been uber smooth and exciting. We really didn’t need to say a lot to each other, because Bryce seemed to have grasped exactly what I wanted and needed in a website…and the magic simply ‘happened’. Thanks a million, and I’m looking forward to working with you on an ongoing basis to keep the site sharp and updated. Brilliant stuff!”
“The board asked me to thank you for your work and help with this, as do I of course. You have been a star all the way and the site is a stunner.”
“I was never a fan of having my own website, however, Bryce provided key information and had confidence that a website for my business would be great and easily manageable. Sure enough, everything Bryce has done on my website has been nothing short of amazing. He made everything seem easy and any updates are done very quickly and without any fuss. So, Bryce comes highly recommended, and I can’t thank him enough for his efforts for my business.”
“Working with Bryce has been like a breath of fresh air. He grasped straight away what it was I wanted to accomplish with my new blog site, and his communication throughout the project was brilliant. I am delighted with the outcome.”
“Being an absolute amateur with technology and creativity Bryce took all of the burdens away from starting my business the right way with a professional website. Nothing is ever a problem and he goes above and beyond to help you achieve the best outcome for your individual needs. Very much appreciated the talent and know-how.”
“We realised it was time to upgrade and renew our website for our bike rental business as the existing one was 10 years old and it wasn’t very user friendly for mobile devices. We contacted Bryce and discussed options with him, mobile device friendly being top of the list. Also some fresh new photos and an easier booking system, for both ourselves and our site visitors.
“Bryce has done an amazing new web design for our motel which we are delighted to say it is marvellous new and creatively designed, we are extremely happy with the service provided and the excellent communication which was awesome and we are very grateful for the time and effort put into the new website. Thank you.”
“Bryce knew exactly what to do and delivered the goods in a pleasant and timely manner. He took control when we were too busy and showed initiative. Being multi-talented, he took our photos and made staff feel at ease. Highly recommend Astonish Me Creative for web design, photography and excellent project management skills.”
