What people are saying

Communica has a been a great digital partner over the years. I feel they really get what makes our business tick - both from a marketing and sales as well as a business viability perspective. Their insights have helped guide our technology decisions and strengthen our offering in the online marketplace."

Brent Narby, Director First Light Travel

Communica was able to deliver on time and on budget with a booking portal that we are genuinely excited about making part of our workflow. Finding a team that we can rely on to "just get on with it" and deliver what we need when we need it has been a huge advantage.

Brent Narby, Director First Light Travel

Also just thought I’d let you know business this year is going really well, and the new website is a big part of that. So if I haven’t before, I just want to pass on my thanks to you and all the team for the work you’ve done and will continue to do in future as we evolve – I really appreciate it :).

Laurence Smith, Creator/Owner PetLinx

I am very pleased you and Gareth were recommended to me nearly 5 years ago Amber. I worked mainly with you and was impressed with your ability to really listen to what I wanted. You are always friendly, professional, give us regular updates and provide a fantastic support network, nothing is ever a problem. We get really good feedback from the many people who view our website. Thanks Amber I totally recommend Communica - by really listening to their clients they get the job done with a minimum of fuss!

Andrea Borrie, Owner Operator Home from Home Childcare

Thank you so much for everything, especially your patience Amber, it has been rather a long journey but we got there! The website looks amazing, I hope you get more work from people who see it – I have already passed your name onto one of our advertisers a lovely lady who does an advertising booklet that goes into childrens school bags. I will get her to look at ours now and get her feedback. You guys are awesome we just love it!!!!!!!!!

Andrea Borrie, Owner Operator Home from Home Childcare

Communica have done a fantastic job on my website! It is attractive, informative and easy to use, everyone that has visited it has commented on what a lovely site it is! I have also had comments from other website professionals on what a high standard of site it is! Thank you Communica!

Dawn Cansfield, Owner Operator Vibrant Health Clinic

We've worked with Communica for around 3 years and have developed 3 different websites with them, the fact that we come back to them for more projects speaks volumes. They're great to deal with and have been proactive about finding solutions to help us in ways we haven't even thought of. Highly recommended for any small or medium sized business web project. They're part of our team now and we're in this together!

Andrew Wells, Director Andrew Wells Consulting

We are grateful for Communica in providing expert design and development for our website. The experience of working with Amber and Ben made the design process easy and enjoyable. We are thrilled with our new website and grateful that we have their expert, ongoing support maintaining the site. We feel like we, and our website, are in good hands.

Jacquie, Credit Management New Zealand Finance Ltd trading as Grabaloan

We asked Communica to work with us on a major revamp of our website, with the goals of making it more engaging, easier to read, and easier to find things. Communica met and often exceeded our expectations, embracing changing requirements and coming up with creative solutions. Their team was both highly professional and a pleasure to collaborate with. To quote one of our partners, “It looks great…very nice work in a sea of boring websites!”.

David Lacey, Communications & Marketing Manager Orchid Systems

The team at Communica we very easy to deal with, responsive and we are very happy with the result. We highly recommend them for any business creating or updating their website.

Trish Reid, Director Digital Light Solutions

It was a pleasure working with Amber and Ben on the refresh and redesign of the Youthtown Website, it is a giant leap forward from what it was and we have had some awesome feedback! Thanks so much!

Fay Amaral, CEO Youthtown

Thanks for the great work on our website revamp. We appreciate the look and feel, but even more importantly for my role as a consultant, we send links daily to partners in answer to their questions. Next step, teach them to look on the website first…

Nathalie, Orchid Systems

I have enjoyed working with Communica from day one and that is not something you can say about all website development relationships. Right from the start of our working relationship, Amber and Gareth have understood what getting it right first time means for a small business. I was able to talk directly with the developers and received great feedback on what was possible, what might be possible but not a good idea, and what just straight out wasn’t going to work. They have an appreciation that time is money and try not to waste either.

The team at Communica are experts in Drupal and really know their stuff. They’ve done a brilliant job at redesigning our sites and always have plenty of suggestions on how we can improve the user experience.

We're completely satisfied with the Communica team's spectacular work on our naturalbeds.nz website. They listened to our stories and our vision of how the site should look, then they built the website to our requirements. The result is a site that looks fantastic and has all the shopping and display features that we need. Communica even specially built us a website "custom bed builder" that enables our customers to personalise the design and feel of their bed before buying it online.

I have been working closely with Communica over the last 18 months in order give MoaTrek the strongest online presence in our particular area of New Zealand Small Group Tours. Communica are responsive, solution based and understand the requirements of New Zealand tour business that wishes to pursue online sales for all future growth

I just want to say a big thank you for all the hard work you've put in over the last couple of months. You are a pleasure to deal with. These are the words I'd use to describe Communica: Experienced, professional, good value, nice people, do what you say you're going to do.

As a result the GF site went live in the weekend which is really awesome.

Now to promote the thing...

Love your work!

I was browsing through some of our competitor websites yesterday, and was happy to see that our website still looks so much better than the others I looked at.

We get a lot of comments from people who have found us via our website that ours is the best-looking, or to quote someone from last week : “yours has the best web presence”.

I highly recommend Communica for all website and creative requirements. It is a rare thing these days to have companies deliver on their promise and Communica is always willing to go the extra mile to ensure delivery. The service is second to none.

Communica are very efficient and helpful and have helped both my business and the businesses of my clients.

I cannot thank them enough for their assistance.

I employed the services of Amber from Communica to design and build a website for our fertiliser business. The service we received was excellent. After a brief meeting to explain what I was looking for and a couple of calls it wasn’t long before there was an email in my inbox to view the draft website complete with content.

We are very happy with the website and would not hesitate to recommend Communica to anyone looking for first class website.

We had 2 fairly complex websites designed by Amber and built by Gareth to cover the Australasian market with each tailored to their requisite country. We are absolutely delighted with the results and will be using Communica again when we revamp our existing Auckland-based company's website when we rebrand later in the year.

Having made unsuccessful attempts to employ a graphic artist I was recommended to contact Communica.

From the outset I was extremely impressed with their professionalism, friendliness, industry knowledge and creativity at affordable rates.

I remain 100% satisfied with their insightful interpretations of my briefs which complete a strong and recognisable brand image.

Amber and Gareth of 'Communica' have been a great team to work with in both graphic and website design.

Our website is easy for us to edit and they have always been very helpful when needed. We have had many comments from guests as to the appeal of our site. We highly recommend them.
