A taste of some of our sweet success stories…

We’ve cooked up 400+ websites. Here is a small, tasty sample…

Just because we’re amazing at rescuing the meal doesn’t mean we slouch when it comes to flavour. We can design a website from scratch for a new project, tidy up an existing but dated website, or just simply articulate an idea better through design fundamentals.

Here’s a selection of three website projects that showcase our skills in design, development, creative and critical thinking and effective user experience.

eCommerce Rebuild for Urban Building Products

Technical Product in need of a Simple Solution.

First we rescued the website off a complicated and expensive proprietary CMS that was delivering no results

We made it real easy for the user to see what the product does and how easy it is to use, then made it super simple to purchase.

Project highlights

  • Take what was old and tired from a brand perspective and give it a new look that didn’t completely abandon the foundations.
  • Save the client a tone of money by moving them off a clunky and expensive proprietary CMS that they had no control over.
  • Focus on what unique selling point’s clients really needed, a easy to see, easy to use user experience throughout the website and eCommerce portal.

Brochure Website + SEO Backbone.

A “New View” for Nuview

Tinting & Films 

Nuview needed website and SEO rescue when we first sat down as results at their previous SEO company had ceased, but we could also see that a fresh image was also required.

We came up with a fun yet potent way of communicating to their clients through three animal graphics (chameleon, raccoon and penguin) that have been a smash hit for their sales team.

Project highlights

  • We delivered an image upgrade across all assets including designed the new brand logo and upgraded the company image across all media touchpoints: web, social, and print.
  • Secondly we delivered a new website that carefully created a new experience for the customer while not disturbing the predictability for an existing client base.
  • Lastly we outlined a new Search Engine Optimisation plan to compete online as well as armed their sales team with all they needed to use the website offline in day to day sales activities.

Take a look at this beauty!

Rebrand and Rebuild for
the Aussie Butcher Team.

The guys at Aussie Butcher have a well established name in the market. Distinguishing the Aussie Butcher as a New Zealand owned and operated company with fresh NZ meats meant refocusing on their brand identity.

We partnered with the awesome team at Aussie Butcher to launch a new image, new website and new social media campaign to win the hearts, and stomachs, of good old fashioned Kiwi battlers.

Project highlights

  • The guys hadn’t had an image upgrade – ever. And as Kiwis only like seeing the shape of Australia when we’re flying in for a holiday we delivered a new type set logo to bring them into 2021.
  • eCommerce had proved difficult for the Group so we simplified the user experience down to a clean brochure site focused on weekly specials and instore incentives.
  • Communication with the existing client base was super important for the guys, so we integrated some clever automation around social media and eNewsletter marketing that keep the chatter going week by week, season by season.

“We couldn’t ask for more. We came from a strong “do it yourself” background but the team at Gherkin Media have absolutely proved to us why they are the best in the biz. We knew our project was something much different, but the Gherkin team has excelled beyond our expectations. Their diverse capabilities, professionalism, client care, skill and creative edge is unmatched. A huge weight has been lifted of our shoulders, we would never look elsewhere. Thank-you Gherkin media”

Jos Horan

Professionalism, Quality, Value

“I have well over a decade of experience working with a variety of web development companies in a graphic design capacity on website projects. Mike and his team at Gherkin Media are by far the most well rounded, honest, reliable and efficient web developers I have had the pleasure of working with. In addition to supporting us with our own website projects, over the years I have referred numerous others who needed assistance with a website project to Gherkin Media, many having had a poor experience with a previous web developer. The feedback from these referrals has always been overwhelmingly positive. If you are going to speak to anyone regarding a website project, I highly recommend you speak to Mike at Gherkin Media.”
