I have known Jason Koning for so many years that I cannot accurately recall exactly how many… but what I am 100% confident of is Jason’s level of commitment to achieving a task. When Cockram Nissan required an updated website we didn’t take much convincing that ‘to start from a fresh’ was better than changing only ‘this and that’ of what we already had. The process with Jason was made easy as he has an incredible understanding and appreciation that allowed us to ‘dream’… and then he made it a ‘reality’.
Jason clearly understands the pressure and time frames that we work at and was more than co-operative and accommodating with all of these. As the months rolled along and various retail offers were added to the website, Jason always and continues to, attend to these without failing. I would be happy to recommend that anyone contemplating website work, contact Jason and I have no doubt that they will be impressed.Alistair Hazeldine
Canterbury Development Corporation (CDC) commissioned Jason from Aotearoa Web Design to develop an ‘interim’ corporate website for our business. We were under enormous time and resource pressure to install a live site and Jason certainly rose to the challenge. He communicated throughout the site build, kept me informed of progress, issues and technical requirements and worked well with our graphic designers to ensure our brand values were incorporated into the site.
CDC is 100% happy with the process and outcome and as a result, we intend to commission Aotearoa Web Design to develop our high-spec, interactive corporate site. Jason is a highly skilled professional who listens to clients’ needs, is able to communicate technical information to non-technical people (like myself!), he is intuitive and delivers a great service.Nikki Hawkey
We love working collaboratively with Jason on web design projects as nothing is ever a problem. Jason tackles even the most ‘hairy’ requests with professionalism and genuine ‘can do’ attitude. Technical issues are handled quickly and efficiently and he’s top notch at keeping us up to date, which in turn allows us to keep our clients informed.
The Canterbury Rebuild Safety Charter is a critical campaign for a number of key stake-holders involved in the Canterbury rebuild. The Safety Charter website design was seamlessly moved from creative visual to live site in a matter of days. Timed to coincide with the public launch it was imperative we delivered on time and on budget.
It always seems as though Jason is waiting on your last minute request to make urgent client changes, I know this is not the case, he is a very busy man. But Jason somehow magically makes things happen. We can’t recommend Jason highly enough.Carmen Rae
One of Jason’s key strengths aside from his excellent technical ability is his cheerful, patient and helpful personality. This make working with him a pleasure and we always feel that that we are a number one priority, even when we call him out of the blue and sometimes in a panic. Somehow Jason juggles many clients effortlessly and I have never been left waiting on any scheduled or unscheduled requests.
Most recently Jason has created our new mobile site which we are very happy with. It took some getting used to, to try to keep it minimal and clean but Jason was able to gently direct us in the right direction without any criticism.
We are extremely happy with the work Jason has undertaken for us and would be delighted to recommend Jason to any prospective clients in the future.
It has been a pleasure working with Jason on the redesign of the Chatham Islands Council website (www.cic.govt.nz). Jason’s technical and design understanding of what will work for the customer (and what won’t) was invaluable in this project, which demanded a simple yet attractive web solution to overcome the issue of low bandwidth out on the Chathams. You need anything done anytime, Jason is always there at the other end of the email. I am not sure he sleeps. I would recommend Jason to anyone needing an intelligent approach to web design services.Daniel Park
The Canterbury Development Corporation in conjunction with the Canterbury Employers Chamber of Commerce recently commissioned Jason Koning of AWDL to come up with a new web site and branding logos for the recently released Collaborate Canterbury project. We are very happy with the results as Jason delivered on time and within budget and we have had a seamless delivery. He was thorough, conscientious and accommodating. I have no hesitation in using his services again and would recommend him without qualification to any prospective user of web based services.Nick Cimino
