Websites built by Big Mark
"Kaea is a consultancy that provides expert advice and support for communities and cultural institutions in matters relating to the return of ancestral remains and cultural heritage to their communities of origin."
OBJECTIVE: Te Arikirangi asked me to build a new website for Kaea, a consultancy that specialises in the return of ancestral remains and cultural heritage to their communities of origin. The website needed to be accessible, easy to update, and because the website is based in the EU, GDPR-compliant.
THE BUILD: The base for the design of the website was the stunning graphic design work by Chloē Reweti, who created the logo and the design system. From design to the launch of the website took just under four weeks, and the website included an insights section that featured and focused on the Pūkaea Podcast.
Fair & Square Building Services Limited
"Fair & Square Building Services are a small, Pasifika family-owned and operated building firm with over 20 years of experience in the industry."
OBJECTIVE: This was a website rebuild, with the goal of bringing the website in much closer alignment with the company brand. In particular, we wanted to focus on Fair & Square pre-designed and space concious Villas.
THE BUILD: The original website was built on WordPress, we decided to rebuild the website in Webflow to take advantage of the flexibility of the Content Management System and the no-plugin/no-code environment. The website took about a month to launch, including discovery, design, build and audits.
"Wellington based consulting structural engineers specialising in residential, commercial and institutional buildings, foundations and retaining walls."
OBJECTIVE: To build a website that outlined the services and experiences of the client, and showcased what the range and scope of the services they could provide.
THE BUILD: We decided on a simple one-page design for this website, with scope to expand in the immediate future. We also took headshots of the client for this project.
"Sailability Wellington is an inclusive sailing club for people with disabilities. With over 200 sailing members and 70 experienced volunteers, we sail up to 6 days a week from our bases at Seaview, Evans Bay and Onepoto."
OBJECTIVE: To rebuild the existing WordPress website on a friendlier, easier to update platform, without loosing any of the charm of the original website. As an important part of the Wellington community, the website needed to be easy for visitors to use and accessible.
THE BUILD: This was a project with multiple stakeholders, and it was important that we got everything right. The final website included 21 pages/subpages, a robust content management system, dynamic news updates, learning resources sections, and responsive design.
"Photography Aotearoa has been established to encourage, enrich and inspire photography in Aotearoa, New Zealand through exhibitions, publications, activities and education."
OBJECTIVE: This was a website rebuild. Originally hosted on Wix, we originally considered a move to WordPress, before we decided on a complete rebuild in Webflow. With a focus on encouraging, enriching and inspiring photography, the website needed to be able to showcase exhibitions and events hosted by Photography Aotearoa in a number of different ways.
THE BUILD: The team at Photography Aotearoa already had developed compressive specs for the development of a new website, so our focus was on building a future-proofed website with a flexible Exhibition Content Management System that could grow and change as the organization grew in the future.
"Andy and Josh are MAGFOX Electical, fully licensed electrical provider of residential, light commercial and maintenance services to Wellington, Porirua, the Hutt Valley, Kapiti and South Wairarapa."
OBJECTIVE: MAGFOX have been a successful electrical contractor for a number of years, but they lacked a presence online. They asked us to build them a website that showcased the things they could do.
THE BUILD: We built Andy and Josh a new website that included a services section, a gallery, and testimonials. We also did a photoshoot, including on location photos and headshots that we used throughout the website.
Mark Y Studios
"Mark Y is a Wellington-based videographer and photographer that focuses on weddings and events."
OBJECTIVE: Working photographers need a professional presence on the web, and Mark Y needed a professional showcase for his portfolio so that people could see some of his work.
THE BUILD: We went with a very simple one-page design. Mark is still in the early stages of his business, so our priority here was a matter of personal branding, we wanted a simple, minimalist showcase that focused on the kind of work that he does and the best examples of his work. We chose a sans-serif font and a monochrome colour palette. The top navigation is simple, with each of the links scrolling to different sections of the home page.
"Voda Models was a Wellington-based agency that represented models and talents from all over New Zealand."
OBJECTIVE: The original Voda Models website was built on WordPress, and was limited by the nature of the template that it was built on. Donna, the owner of Voda Models asked for a more modern website that loaded quicker, and would be a great showcase for her agency.
THE BUILD: We rebuilt a completely bespoke solution in Webflow, including a brand-new user interface (which included custom sorting and search) and an easy to update database of talent.
"I have a passion for storytelling and memory making, which is what I like to share with my clients. I want to make your day something you treasure and look back on from years to come."
OBJECTIVE: Chloe was a Nelson based photographer who wanted a new website to showcase her photography.
THE BUILD: We built a multipage website that showcased the different types of work that Chloe could do, including weddings, events and commercial.
