We're thrilled to live in the Wairarapa, surrounded by gorgeous landscapes and people by wonderful, creative personalities! So we're also excited about supporting our local community, and this time it's the under 15 Wairarapa Girls Hockey reps, who are off to regional and national tournaments in Tauranga. The pics below show the delightful and lovely Rosalie modeling her training top. Best of luck to the team as they head away to face the best from around the country!
Following the successful design of the FDH logo a few years back, Farah asked Nectarine to do a make-over on her website. After talking to her marketing specialist who thought that her video-based homepage wasn't working very well for new visitors to her site, Farah decided to revamp. Nectarine helped Farah with a solution to the problem and designed and created two home pages. One for non-members and one for members. The default non-members page has access to information including the FDH Blog, about Farah [...]
Nectarine designed five large scale panels for an installation for the Bowen Hospital in 2011-12. Recently the Bowen Hospital decided to add a sixth panel to the installation depicting the new Bowen Centre which includes a theatre suite completed in 2012. We worked with specialist architectural photographer Jason Mann who took some fabulous up-to-date photographs of the hospital including the new Centre. The panels feature a collage of photographs sourced from libraries around the country and a timeline along the bottom. The sixth panel created [...]
Andi is a Swiss-born builder who spent a lot of time in New Zealand and has now relocated here, bringing his wealth of skills to the Wairarapa. So he needed a website to match! We went with a funky one-page site that tells the story of his skills, expertise and project history in a clean and direct manner. The website is, of course, responsive and SEO enhanced. Pretty too!
Gak! It's October already! We've been so busy at Nectarine, there's been little time for updating our own blog. So before it gets completely out of hand, here's a couple of projects we've finished recently: the PRomote PR website and the Fruitfire website. Okay, onwards and upwards, and some slightly higher quality reportage will appear here once the decks have been cleared a little more! Fruitfire Website PRomote PR Website
Plum Tree Studios - www.plumtreestudios.co.nz Cathryn and Marty at Plum Tree Studios make absolutely gorgeous studios: beautifully designed and finished with superb craftsmanship. They had a website, but it was starting to show its age: it didn't look good on mobile phones, it wasn't ranking well with search engines, and the pictures were tiny and not as exciting as they could be. So we leapt into a new, revamped site. We kept it clean and simple, allowing their two main logo colours and [...]
Last year we launched a new site for award-winning Auckland-based photographer Emma Bass (which replaced a site we'd created for her many years ago in the ancient times of the 'net when Flash ruled the world). It's always very satisfying to see a website become a focal point for growing a career, and the latest update reflects the Emma's continued rise in the field in both the professional and artistic areas. Her Imperfect exhibition was such an ongoing success that she's launching Imperfect II soon. [...]
Being in a somewhat niche market like boardgames can lead to interesting phonecalls! A recent one was from the Reserve Bank who had an existing boardgame called "Skint To Mint". It's aimed at raising financial literacy and teaching people about the difference between types of investments, including Savings, Stocks and Property. Working closely with the Young Enterprise Trust, the Reserve Bank has seen Skint To Mint being used successfully in a variety of areas, but there was a growing need to be able to play [...]
Camp Anderson is situated at Riversdale Beach, 55kms south-east of Masterton on the Wairarapa’s eastern coast. It’s a wonderful choice for people who enjoy swimming, diving, fishing or simply enjoying an unspoilt beach environment. The camp is a perfect venue for school groups, sports groups, church retreats, business team building retreats, conferences and family gatherings. But sadly, their previous website was very out of date and only worked in Internet Explorer. Nectarine were engaged to bring a new, vibrant look to the site and update [...]
Four years ago we created a free website to promote one of Carterton's fabulously unique days, The Great Carterton Wheelbarrow Race. The day comprises many events and activities, including kids and adults races, mobility scooter race and decorated barrows and more. The highlight, however, is the Gladston To Carterton Endurance Event. For this, two mad (and madly fit) competitors take it in turns to push each other in a wheelbarrow the whole 13 kilometers from Gladstone to Carterton! The race celebrates the story of one [...]
