The Heathcote Web Design Story

In recent times, a lot of kiwi businesses suddenly found out just how important having an online presence is. Not long before these COVID-induced panics, I started up my own business, sparked by the desire for professional freedom and to help the many small businesses within New Zealand.

This business was CREAM Creative Brand Management. I set this up as a type of virtual creative agency, using my network of freelance creatives. As we moved through the COVID lockdowns, it became apparent that websites were something in high demand. Luckily, this coincided with me finding out about Rocketspark.

Now, a year on, I have over 15 sites live on Rocketspark and have earned the title of Silver Design Partner. I was also a finalist for two awards in the 2021 Rocketspark Launch Awards - the Community Good award and New Partner of the Year award.

Due to the ever-growing popularity of my website copywriting and design services, I decided to split this off from the main business so I can more effectively assist web design clients. However, CREAM is still in operation, so if you're looking for more than great website copywriting and design, give me a shout!

What is Rocketspark?

Rocketspark is an amazing Kiwi company, based in Cambridge. Rocketspark is a website platform that allows for the creation of beautiful websites and really smart SEO.
I prefer to use Rocketspark for my clients websites for so many reasons.
They make it easy for you to edit your own site once I've finished my job, so you don't need to keep paying me every time you need something changed.
They offer great functionality, particularly for e-commerce websites. They keep adding features as times change, such as great scheduled ordering options which came about during the COVID lockdowns in 2020.
Rocketspark is also continually coming up with more and more ways to help small business owners. They're also very active in their community and love to help out wherever they can.

What I do for you

Big, small, complex, simple.
I design any website you send my way.

What I have done

I'm not new to the web design game.
Here's some proof.

"After receiving some lofty quotes for an up to date website elsewhere Louis came highly recommended and we couldn't be happier with the final product. His professional yet personal touch really helped us sculpt the website we were after and at a price that was a no brainer for us. We can't give enough praise for such a great result."
