The Suspension Lab

The Suspension Lab is a new business committed to making bikes better by offering specialised services in setup and tuning, upgrades, wheelbuilding, and of course, suspension. The shop has recently sprung up in Rotorua, and owner/operator Jono approached UpShift to build a website incorporating his existing branding.

The Squarespace site lists all services and pricing provided by The Suspension Lab in an easy to navigate format, and includes a contact form for customers to book a slot to drop in to the shop.

Precious People

Precious People is a mobile Nelson and Marlborough nursing service that is able to come to your workplace. With a wide range of services and diverse customer base, it was important their new website showcased both their capacity as an organisation and the team's individual specialisms.

Built on the Squarespace platform Precious People's new website is clean, professional, easy to navigate and engaging. A bold call to action encourages the audience to reach out for more information or to book an appointment. 

Menzshed Nelson

Nelson/Whakatū-Menzshed follows in the footsteps of a growing global Menzshed movement whereby men are retiring all over the world and recognising an opportunity to promote fellowship, fraternity, fun and a sense of community for men within the Nelson area.

UpShift stepped in to build a website that would promote the organisation and provide an online information board where news, information and updates can be easily accessed.

Flock Café

Flock is Nelson’s newest cafe & pizzeria, located on Church Street in the CBD.

Once Cafe Roma, the new owners wanted a brand that embodied their vision of a social and fun space for friends and families to gather and enjoy great pizza, coffee and gelato together.

Upshift was delighted to come on board to create a new identity with a little rustic charm and a touch of whimsy, featuring a literal ‘flock’ and a fresh, vibrant turquoise, black and white palette.

Let's Go

Let’s Go is a brand new passenger vehicle service coming to the Nelson region in February 2019.

Owned and operated by Ana, Let’s Go offers a shuttle service with a personal touch. Services range from special occasion or business shuttle to a personalised Mini Day Out to take in the sites, sounds and tastes of Nelson.

Ana approached UpShift to create a logo and website for her new venture.
The result is a modern and fresh Squarespace site with easily accessible information on services, a booking form and an integrated calendar app enabling potential clients to view Ana’s availability and book out the time blocks they require. A splash of aqua and an energetic typeface are the finishing touch with a logo that represents Ana’s bright and enthusiastic approach to her new business.

Flaxmore Wines

Flaxmore is one of Nelson Tasman’s finest boutique vineyards located in the Moutere Hills. UpShift worked with Flaxmore to build a new website to showcase their vineyard and the attention to detail in their winemaking process and in the sustainable care and cultivation of their land.

The Squarespace e-commerce functionality works for selling their small collection of boutique fine wines through the site, while beautiful imagery of the vineyard takes customers on a journey to it’s origins.

Southern Lakes Tartan

Southern Lakes Tartan is a boutique family business run between Shona Johnstone and her daughter, Hilary. A tartan design created by Shona and inspired by the natural beauty of New Zealand’s Central Otago region is the centerpiece of a beautifully crafted collection of homewares, fabrics and fashion items.

UpShift took great pride in creating a new visually inspiring website that would do justice to Southern Lakes’ stunning product range, tell their story, and provide an e-commerce Shopify platform for online orders and sales.

Bridge Street Early Learning Centre

Bridge Street Early Learning Centre came to us to help them increase their profile, develop an online platform to market from and ultimately help ensure their roll is filled each year. 

Early learning is all about fun, engagement, professionalism and a safe environment. Using a palette of primary colours, vibrant images and a clear call to action we created a website that showcases what makes Bridge Street Early Learning Centre such a great place for kids and parents.

The website is now being used as the focal point for the Centre's online advertising to help tell a consistent story, and develop a stronger awareness of the brand throughout the Nelson area.

Betta Bins

Betta Bins is Nelson's largest refuse and recycling service providing the Nelson and Tasman region with the best prices and best service for Rubbish, Recycling and Greenwaste collection.

We've worked with the team behind Better Bins for many years, and used that knowledge to build a very focused, mobile-friendly web presence that gives the Better Bin customer exactly the information they are looking for, and nothing else. E-commerce functionality enables the visitor to sign up for various services, buy products and have them delivered to their home and check collection times for their street.
