Michelle Potangaroa

Mikis has been my website developer and manager for over 7 years. He has designed for my Oral & Dental Practice in Masterton, my Cosmetic Clinic in Wellington and a Medical appraisal company we own in the UK. He is currently developing a Dental and Aesthetic website for us in the United Kingdom and Austria. Mikis’ talents are boundless, his creativity is without parallel and he is an absolute delight to work with, a true professional gentleman. I commend his services in the highest order.

Dr Robert Watcyn Jones

He is a great photographer and artist which made it very easy for me to produce our company calendar for the last two years. I only had to deal with one person. His understanding of photography, graphic art and the printing process was a huge asset. As a construction company with 3 branches, we had a substantial brief which Mikis quickly picked up on and followed through. We also have high health & safety standards required from our workforce and he took these on board and ensured that all the photographs he took were useful. Our staff also enjoyed working with him and we found that he certainly didn’t hold up any works as he quietly captured the men working.

Mikis’ high standards for a quality product resulted in a beautiful company calendar each time.

Working with Mikis is very easy the only person I would contract to produce any of our artwork.

I have to say, I have been involved in website building numerous times and this has been far and away the best process yet. Thank you – I really love the site.

Welcome to my site, where you can get a feel of what I have been doing and could be doing for you. In a nutshell it’s Design. Graphic design, Website design, Brand design, Book design, User Interface design, you name it! Great aesthetic design can be the difference between making a product work or making it a waste of energy.

A Blend of printed and digital products

Based in Golden Bay, servicing New Zealand wide and even globally! My passion is about discovering what makes your project unique. About developing creative concepts resulting in designs that tell your story in an interesting way. Designs that appeal to your people, your community.

Experience matters

Many years of designing in a range of different roles, teams and locations has provided me with the expertise in outputting design files for both print and digital.

Often jobs start with brand building or bringing your brand to life. You and your audience will see, judge and respond on the final results in print or on screen.

You can trust this whole pathway from start to finish is in good hands with me. Why? Because of a proven track record, a vast variety of jobs and products with successful results and happy clients.


It’s great to tell stories with pictures. The relation between words and images is playful and appealing and works well to bring a story to live.

I have been illustrating, painting and drawing since I was a kid. It keeps my perspective on the use of computer technology for design. Not losing out of sight that these are all tools to bring a message across. What’s more satisfying than making the message look good?!
