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 3 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/
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.
