We found Gary to be very inspiring with new branding, supportive materials and packaging it all together. Then getting the end results looking better then we imagined. Happy to have a continuing relationship as the brand develops further.
Gary has just completed the rebuild of our web, modernised our marketing systems and we are over the moon with it, inside the first week we have seen increases in targeted market enquiries and sales and are boadcasting more product to larger audiences, his care to attention ,client understanding and finished product are spot on, I highly recommend him.
Gary set up and designed a truly magnificent logo, branding and website for my newly established business. The design concept and flow of the website is exactly what I wanted. Gary’s experience and knowledge in his field is evident, he came up with some great suggestions and ideas around the whole concept right through to the marketing and promotion of my business. I will be using Gary for all my future design and marketing needs and would honestly recommend him to anybody looking for a professional to design and promotionally market their business.
Gary is the best. He joined our motorcycle Club IMOC 4 years ago and offered his help with our Magazine and with our website. His work is simply awesome! He’s a terrific team member and has great leadership skills to get the best out of his clients and himself. His design work is of the highest quality and is well thought out. He makes it easy to understand for those of us that have a limited understanding and low tolerance for websites and all of the background work. He has great time management and an eye for detail. If you want it done right, get Gary on the job and let him run. https://www.imoc.co.nz/
I have dealt with Gary on a personal level on behalf Bradford Publishing Ltd, of which I am chairman and publishing editor, for fifteen years. Throughout that period I have enjoyed the utmost satisfaction.
My brief to Rich&Co was that I wanted production quality of a kind that would not only satisfy the local market but give the wider thoroughbred industry the confidence to use the publication to successfully promote the New Zealand thoroughbred globally.
Rich&Co has met every criteria. Quality has been of world standard, deadlines have been scrupulously adhered to, inter-action with myself welcomed and communication faultless.
Most pleasing for myself has been the willingness to go the extra yard, arranging cost effective overseas printing and managing those schedules and quality checks on my behalf. I am not overstating my satisfaction when I say my association with Rich&Co has been one of my most rewarding commercial experiences.
The New Zealand Manipulative Physiotherapists Association (NZMPA) recently appointed Gary to assist us with rebranding and repositioning our Association. From the outset, Gary made it his business to understand our needs and our exact requirements.
Gary drove our process in a very professional and collaborative manner and listened to us, but also made very valuable suggestions and inputs. Over the course of a few months and several meetings and drafts, we were able to come up with the new look and feel for the NZMPA and this was then presented to the members and overwhelmingly supported.
Following this, Gary continued the process with us to implement this through the design of professional stationery and the re-skinning of our website that is currently under way.
We would recommend Rich&Co without reservation based on the positive outcome and experience with redoing our brand and positioning.
I can honestly say that branding and website design by Rich and Co works! Rich and Co rebranded our business and designed our first website some years ago. Prior to having this website we were relying on the Yellow Pages as our primary marketing tool, this was very expensive and non effective. After the first few weeks of launching the new website the enquiries increased substantially, my phone started to ring and work steadily increased. The leads generated by both the new branding and the website out-performed the leads from our Yellow Pages advert very quickly.
At the end of 2016 we realised that it was time to improve our now five year old website. Website technology had improved and the way our clients used the internet had also changed. We went back to Gary. The consultative process we went through was very thorough and a new path forward was plotted.
We now had a website with far more detail and functionality. The feedback we receive from our clients is terrific – often stating how easy it is to navigate through the site and the speed in which it loads. The website also gave us the ability to manage and change our own content, placing monthly specials and offers as and when required.
Thank you Gary – you have done a great job! The money we have spent with you was worth every penny! We have now taken the business to a whole new level. Keep up the good work!
For most people the words “Approachable” and “Lawyer” are a contradiction in terms. So developing a logo which conveyed both qualities together was always going to be a challenge.
Gary at Rich and Co came up with a great concept which fitted the bill perfectly. Of course, being fussy (and being a lawyer) I had changes of my own to make and these were implemented without fuss and without losing the basic concept. By having a very distinctive logo it has enabled me to trademark my brand with the NZ Intellectual Property Office where a previous application without the logo had been refused.
I now see the logo as a valuable asset for my business and one which I can leverage off in the future (and hopefully persuade people that lawyers really can be approachable…!). Well done Gary!
I’ve worked with Gary Richards coming up 12 years now, and his professionalism, outstanding work and ability to accurately interpret our requirements has always been spot on. Add to that his ability to achieve wonders on tight budgets that are measured within an inch of their life – I have absolutely no desire to look anywhere else! Thanks Rich&Co, here’s to another 10 years.
I am writing to convey my thanks and appreciation to you and your team at Rich&Co for developing the branding, brochure and website for my company. You really listened to what I was wanting and creatively translated what I would describe as very general ideas into a well-designed and user-friendly website. Not only that, I would like to commend you for the way you and your colleagues interacted with me during the process. At no stage was I left wondering what was going on. You always kept in touch and kept me fully involved and informed throughout the project.
In short, you delivered over and above my expectations and I would have no hesitation in recommending your services to other people. Please also pass on my thanks to your wife, Jo for her assistance in the photoshoot.
Fabricell had not done any marketing for many years, and with a new CEO on board, a decision was made to rebrand the company as well as two of it’s associate companies, plus two of our core brands. Gary redeveloped our existing Med-X and Fab-X brands giving it a fresh new face and feel, well within the time frame and budget.
Gary then went on to design and produce our extensive catalogue taking care of the photography and printing, making it a pain free experience. Gary also designed and built our website and are managing the updates on an ongoing basis.
Fabricell’s new branding has given the company a new culture and vibe. Gary has done excellent work on every element he has produced. His customer service is outstanding and I would recommend him to anyone looking to promote their business.
