What we do …

We build websites in a friendly and economical way by working with you to understand how to develop your ideas for a presence on the internet.

If you are a business, a website can tell people who you are, what you offer and where to find you before they look around and choose a competitor. Your website needs to be functional, well designed, easy to use and easy to update a living shopfront for your business.

For communities we can create a meeting place for people to come together and share information, ideas and aspirations.

… and above all, we won’t make it complicated or beyond your budget.

About us

The idea for Pagemakers came to us when we began looking for local goods and services using the internet. Local internet directories were a start but in many cases the companies we found using them had no website or email address. So, the challenge was to bring the power of the internet to small businesses in an affordable and approachable way.

Understanding your needs and providing a responsive service is at the heart of our business philosophy.  As part of this we donate a portion of our time to provide websites for community groups

Our core team comprises Peter Huckle and Lesley Curnow.

Peter’s career has been in the computer industry – in Silicon Valley in California, in the UK and for the last 18 years in New Zealand.  He organised the first business internet conference in the UK attended by over 600 people.  Lesley has been a teacher in New Zealand and the UK and is a published writer.  

Our skills have been developed over many years and we are passionate about what we do. To all of our projects we bring a broad range of business, technical and creative resources.

We have been developing websites since the early days of the internet.


We won’t leave you with expensive maintenance bills to keep your website up to date. Of course will be happy to maintain it for you, but equally we can teach you how to keep your website up to date yourself.

Our websites are build using WordPress – a system that it used for more than 25% of all websites on the internet so there will be no trouble with on-going maintenance.
