Amy Valentine

Hi, I’m Amy, I use the royal ‘we’ in business but it’s mainly just me, with advanced technical support from my partner Peter. I first fell in love with DOS and basic computing back in the ’80’s at school, but it wasn’t until the late 2000’s that I worked for an online publishing company and discovered my passion for web design.

My Dad was in the British Army stationed in Germany until I was 16, then I spent 10 years in the UK studying and working in between travelling all over Europe. I met Peter in 2001 and we moved to New Zealand in 2004. I haven’t actually left the country since! Why leave when you’ve found paradise?

In 2010 I invested in web design training and continue to do so today, you’re never too old to learn something new. Just as my business was starting to grow I fell pregnant and we were gifted with a late treasure in life. For the last 5 years I’ve been focusing on raising our daughter who at 5 years old is adamant that she can be a web designer too!

The Brief

We originally built the first incarnation of Sarah's Accent Coaching site in 2016. With her credibility firmly established and many more courses available, Sarah asked us to redesign and develop her site to make it clear what her various offerings are.

The Strategy

We redesigned the Courses landing page and individual Course sales pages to make it simpler to book each course. Using a third party plugin we also enabled hide/show elements based on date. This means Sarah can schedule all her courses in advance and enable the booking dates to show at specific times/dates for the relevant course. This is a huge time-saver for planning future courses.

The Results

Redesigned Course logos, Coaching logos and updated modern fonts all work together to create a more professional look and feel, as well as making navigation for clients easier. Since relaunch sales for the various courses have exploded, subscribers are up 200% and the free ebook optin is converting at over 6%.

"You are AMAZING! Thank you so much, it looks really good and I LOVE the new courses pages."

The Brief

Lightning Bolt has been around since 1971. The international website relaunched 10 years ago but the Australian owner was keen to reignite the brand for the local market. The brief was to create a simple grassroots surfboards, surf wear and accessories shop, projecting a very down to earth and hands on local image.

The Strategy

With a rich history to draw on we developed an online shop using strong imagery and clear information sections. Building the community and fanbase was a requirement so we integrated several social plugins to showcase their Instagram feed and enable social sharing. We set up follow-up emails after purchase requesting reviews. This is a great way to easily demonstrate social proof and increase sales.

The Results

Since launch sales have increased 300% every month, optin rates have steadily increased and sales via social media are taking off.

The Brief

The original website was built in 2007 using iWeb. With multiple photo galleries but only tiny thumbs to work with we suggested a complete redesign to modernise the brand, optimise across all devices and simplify the imagery to reduce page load speeds.

The Strategy

We rebranded with a new logo, modern yet elegant header fonts and classy gallery styling. We chose a selection of images to showcase the best New Zealand has to offer, and included videography as part of the About section. This helps to demonstrate the variety of locations available and the final result of the production.

The Results

By switching to what is essentially a one-page website this business card style format does exactly what is required, showcasing locations, work experience and making it easy for production companies to get in touch.
