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 who offer the best support, technical advice and smooth hassle-free hosting. Plus I enjoy mountain biking with Stephen who has become a great friend and mentor 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?

Stephen is my other sidekick. A brilliant and experienced web designer who owns Slightly Different Ltd. We work in together and pic shows him enjoying the view at the Old Ghost Road Mountain bike trail. We rode it in winter and had a epic time.
“They say talent hits the target and genius hits the target others cannot see);
I did not see the class and quality in the pics I sent to Bryce; for him to create a masterpiece of my album artwork, and so quickly is pure genius. Thanks Bryce!”

“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.”

“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.

All of this came together fairly quickly and with a very reasonable price tag. Our new site is quick and the booking system is simple to use. We really appreciate Bryce’s expertise and simple solutions for improving our website.
Many thanks and we are more than happy to recommend Bryce to anyone looking to raise their profile and online presence.”
