We can highly recommend Clare Woods at Woodswork Web.
She did an amazing job on our site for Duncan Building Services.
She was incredibly easy to work with, great energy and realistic approach to the sites production.
Not sure what others charge but felt we got real value for money.

We have used Clare and Woodswork for a number of years now. They look after 2 websites for us. Clare and her expert team are excellent to deal with, and take all the hassle out of things that you can’t fix yourself, simple things and also the complicated, where you really need expert help and advice. Using Woodswork has added more value to our websites, in terms of professionalism and more importantly ranking and customers finding us and our services.

We are impressed with the work that Woodswork Web did on our website. Working with Woodswork is a pleasure and they’re very helpful with their ideas and knowledge.
We’ve had great response to the site resulting with new clients. And our suppliers and previous clients have all given positive feedback to the site. A big thanks to Clare and her team at Woodswork Web.

My name is Stacey and I am a (not very tech savvy) small business owner. We needed a website for our business and Clare (Woodswork Web) was recommended to me by a friend of a friend. The best part about my experience with Woodswork is that they always went above and beyond to help me, from helping me work out what I needed in the beginning to the end product of the finished website.
They were very responsive to any questions I had and were very patient with me when I was slow to get them info.
I would highly recommend Clare and Woodswork Web to anyone looking for a great website and great customer service!

Clare was recommended to me by my previous website designer when she moved to a new role. I was nervous about the move as I hadn’t been up and running for long but the transition was seamless and the Woodswork team kept me updated throughout the process which put me at ease.
Since the transition, whenever I’ve had a question, needed work done on my website or just needed some wise words and encouragement, Clare has been there with all the information I need (and with a super quick response time!).
I highly recommend Clare & the Woodswork team – they truly are incredible!

Wow – this is a fantastic mine of information Clare. I haven’t written a blog post for ages! This has inspired me. Thank you for adding me to your list. It’s very useful as this is an area I need to work at.

I’m still wondering if you have some magic in your hands 😉
It’s great that we got it solved to fast and that your response time is so great!

Working with Clare is an outstanding experience.
She guided us with her design experience for our new website and now, years later any routine changes necessary are managed promptly and efficiently.
She is also a delight to deal with!
I would not want to go anywhere else for our website needs.

Hello, Clare!
My name is Allen, the Director of Partnership for Strikingly. I love your article about how to optimize images for use on a website. I finally found an ultimate guide to optimizing web images! You did an excellent job addressing the simplest problem with a straightforward solution. It’s perfect for anyone who wants directions on image SEO.

Allen Flores-Beltran


I cannot recommend Woodswork highly enough, after 2 weeks of stress with our website not functioning I made contact with Clare, she was back to me in minutes, helped me figure out what was causing the issue and came back to me with options to fix our problems (there were many) most of this happened on a Friday afternoon, Monday morning our website was back up and running and our client contacts were rolling in. Service was second to none! Clare was an absolute pleasure to deal with and we will go nowhere else for our website needs now. To say I’m relieved to have found woodswork is an understatement, thanks for saving the day.

The website set-up created by Woodswork Web & Design for my university studies well exceeded my expectations. It met all the requirements, with prompt delivery despite a tight deadline and a creative interpretation of what I needed. Any queries were followed up immediately and resolved. The comprehensive instructional videos on completion of the website were a bonus. The easy to follow, set-by-step guides have given me, as a digital immigrant, the agency I needed to continue to develop my site and ensure it stays up to date. Woodswork saved me a lot of work and angst and helped me produce a site I am proud of.

Clare you are magic.
I love the first one, the clear page with the logo, wiggly line and words is powerful and makes me go WOW.
It is clean, clear and crisp with lots of magic.
Thank you.

Clare and her team go out of their way to understand your website needs, and then complete your project with professionalism, flair and style. Highly recommend. An absolute pleasure to work with.

We have used Woodswork many times and always valued the professional, timely and personal service. Clare is skilled at transforming a vague idea into something that looks great, listening to what we want and also giving her expert input. I thoroughly recommend Woodswork.

Woodswork helped to get this site looking the way they wanted it at a fraction of the cost of their own designers edits quote.

If I look at the Why Hellerwork Works page having exited the visual builder that is just fabulous – thank you!! Button images are spot on in size/ratio. Clicking the first two is exactly what I hoped for, nice and simple and elegant and a back button plus the repeated menu below. 👍👍👍

Phillip Hurring


Thank you for the beautiful website!


Free to Be

We have just launched a new website designed by Woodswork.
Our new website is fresh and modern which is exactly what we asked for. Clare and her team were wonderful to work with always responsive and patient regardless of how challenging we were.
Good news is our sales have increased markedly thanks to the new online shop.

I contacted Woodswork Web Design to create a website for my business. From the first phone call I had with Clare, and right the way through the project, I was given a detailed response and constructive advice on how we could achieve the vision I had in my head. The website turned out amazing and I will continue to use Woodwork to extend my platform when necessary. Highly recommend Woodswork for anyone wanting to build/extend their web platform.

Ricky Tritto

Director, First Look Limited

We just launched the site you built for BOSS, and we are extremely pleased with it. This is amazing, thank you Clare and Rachel. Beautiful site, well-organized, easy to navigate. Finishing the BOSS website I saw again and again how much care and creative effort you put in. Thank you.
Eli Loomis

Executive Director, Boulder Outdoor Survival School

I’ve been SHOUTING OUT LOUD about my new website. It’s so well laid out, easy to navigate and user friendly, just what I need to run a Segway Tour Company. I especially worked with Clare who was a joy to talk to as she always sounded so cheerful and positive, nothing was too much trouble, they worked their Magic for me. And there’s more! They’re always there on the phone to talk through any issues and give more helpful advice.

Pauline Baker

Segway Specialist, Magic Broomstick - a GF client

The series has gone way better than our wildest dreams, and is fast becoming the sports flagship series in Auckland. Many thanks for your support of the series, without you it would not have happened! We were so excited and thrilled with the logo and flyer Clare designed. We think it made a massive difference in our dealing with schools. Everything looked so professional, rather than something we had just tried to put together ourselves. Schools supported us from the outset, which was so important to the advertising of the series. We can’t thank Clare enough. Such a incredibly generous person to do this for us, with no interest in climbing herself (so far but you never know.)

After operating our business for some 9 years using a self-created, static web site, we decided it was time to get a new site designed by a professional! Clare built our UProtectNZ web site according to our specifications and was a delight to work with, always being able to accommodate and find a solution to any of the challenges encountered along the way. Very pleased to now be enjoying the results of a more visible, accessible and responsive web site, which has enhanced our exposure and increased the number of business enquiries we have received, and continue to receive, since the new web site was launched.
Theo Simeonidis

Director, UProtectNZ Insurance Services Limited

We recently engaged Woodswork to completely rebuild our main website and to build another single product micro site from scratch.
Clare approached these projects systematically and with a professionalism that is only achieved from years of experience in this field.
She listened but also when necessary, guided us gently in the right direction.
Her special skill is in design. She has that X factor necessary to create truly stunning websites.
The result is two modern, stylish and functional sites.
Thanks Clare.

Thank you for an enjoyable experience. Clare delivered an impressive website that exceeded my expectations. Great work!

We recently engaged Clare Woods (Woodswork) to create two websites for our business. The two different sites required very different thinking and execution and Clare did an amazing job to get the functionality and feel right on both sites. She appreciated what we needed the sites to do and had excellent suggestions to set the tone for both of them. We would happily recommend Clare to anyone looking for a talented website designer. www.mountaincountry.co.nz    www.nzknit.co.nz

Evolution Business Systems has utilised Clare’s services for 20 years. She has a thorough understanding branding and design for the web and print media.  She is very creative and has helped us on many occasions to deliver on a vision to see it come to life.  I would highly recommend Clare’s work.

Terri McKinnon

Marketing Manager, Evolution Business Systems (EBS)

We’re a GP service that was requiring a dynamic website that we could update quickly and easily for computer novices.

We have been some what “fussy” and spent a lot of time toing and froing with concepts. Clare at Woodswork has had incredible patience with us and guided us through the process with minimal fuss our end. Once we had agreed on the site layout that we wanted, Clare has put together training and support to ensure that we are able to update in real time.

It has been a pleasure [if website development can be] to work on this with Clare and Woodswork. And we’re not feeling quite so novice anymore.

Toni Broughton-Johnson

Practice Manager, Kowhai Surgery

We were looking to upgrade/build a new website for our own small business. Clare worked with us over quite a long time due to unforeseen road bumps on our end, but she was very helpful and willing to wait for us and work at our pace. We really appreciate that. When things started coming together, we had our website ready to launch in no time.

Clare created a stunning website for my business Matakana Watercress, several years ago. The website without any changes, still continues to get fantastic feedback. I wasn’t sure what I wanted, how everything worked, and I was time poor, but she made the process, very, very easy. I loved working with her, she explained things in layman’s terms, and has a great sense of humour. If you can get a booking with her, grab it, you won’t regret it.  

Sandra Bolland

Matakana Watercress, Greenwood Enterprises

I have worked with Clare since 2019, she is our main point of contact when I require any changes on our website, she understands our business needs and the speed that we need things altering to such a level that all I do is send her an email and it is actioned within a short time frame, to what I need. In the past, Clare has also offered advice and guidance when we originally set the website up. Did a fair amount of checking and proof reading too. She comes highly recommended from my experience with her.

Best regards,
Lisa Gray

Clare at Woodswork Web Design has made the day to day running of my website so easy with her quick reference tutorials. Like most people I am time poor so I need a website that is easy to use, looks fantastic and has the on hand support Clare offers.

Michelle Stevenson

Black Earth Preserves

Woodswork and Clare Woods are highly recommended if you want a website designed. Clare is easy to communicate with and responsive to suggestions. We’re very pleased with our new website which she developed from scratch despite knowing little about our specialised niche business at the outset. 

Stephen Buckland

CEO, Sound Techniques Ltd

We contacted Clare at WoodsWork to revamp the site for our B&B. We had made the original site ourselves, and the result was far from ideal. Clare stepped in, redesigned the logo for us, changed our colour palette and made so much better use of the photos we had. We’ve had really good feedback from our guests both on the look of the site itself, and on the ease of usability.
We’ re very grateful to Clare for her wonderful design flare and for how super simple she makes everything seem.

As a copywriter, I needed a website that would grab the attention of potential clients. I gave Clare free rein, and she came up with this eye-catching design. It was such a relief to be able to just hand the project over and just know the end result would be so good. I’m no designer, so I was incredibly pleased I didn’t have to be too involved and could get on with my own work. Thanks Clare. Love it!!!!!

The team at Woodswork created an amazing website for a newly set-up New Zealand Centre for Macroeconomics. I was amazed by how they were able to deliver quickly a stunning site that requires minimal follow-up maintenance. Their service was quick, and extrapolated my basic thoughts into a complete, attractive and functional site which disseminates information across a number of associates as well as the public at large. I regularly receive compliments about how good the site looks. If you want a professional high-quality service, look no further!

We have worked with Woodswork since our business started in 2001, we have always found Clare to be very helpful and with the expertise that she brings to our projects, we always have a great outcome.

Woodswork are effectively our outsourced graphic design department, the attention to detail and ability to understand our concepts in what we are looking for make its very easy for us to produce professional brochures that look amazing and are also laid out in a way that makes it easy for people to understand. I don’t think we could be without Woodswork for our design work. From our re-branding 7 years ago for the whole look at feel of our company, to our success story brochures, flyers for events and graphics for our website, not to mention the amazing job she did with our 7 meter values wall art in our office. All requests for any graphic work are delivered in scope and on time. I highly recommend robot (I mean Clare).

Clare Woods has designed both my business card and my website. I was thrilled with her work at the outset and continue to be impressed with her creativity and attention to detail.
My website is hosted by Clare and she is prompt with any requests for changes etc that I have.
I have over the years that my website been up and running had a lot of positive comments about its design and content, all of which Clare designed.
I cannot recommend Clare enough and have in fact done so to my colleagues in the celebrant industry. I wish her well with her continued business.

Dear Clare,
Thank you very much for your help in designing a poster for an event the Warkworth Floral Art Club is hosting in September 2017.  The initial choices you gave us were all fabulous, and it was hard to pick just one.  From design to final proof stage, nothing was too much trouble and you were very gracious at all times, responding to any questions or changes very quickly; sometimes by return.  The poster has been very well received, and the international designer involved has pronounced it ‘awesome’.
With kind regards

Marianne Gibson

President, Warkworth Floral Art Club

Thanks Woodswork Design for the creation of our business logo.  Loved hearing and seeing your ideas and your speedy turn around was hugely appreciated!   Thanks

We’ve been using Clare’s expertise on and off for 10 years. Clare has an excellent ability to put the ideas and thoughts you have and create the perfect visual image, normally with minimal tweeking. She has fresh ideas and a great understanding of colours and concepts. She has been instrumental in designing our kids school lunch menus. In our opinion this is the best Auckland graphic design company.
