It has been a pleasure working with Chris to develop our website. We were looking for someone who could understand the essence of our brand and bring it to life online in a creative and yet functional way. Chris worked with us to develop a range of imagery and colours in keeping with our brand style that would work in a digital format. He understood the need to create a functional website and combined this with strong design creative so that the end result is a website that is both easy to use and beautiful. We have found Chris approachable and solutions focused. His greater understanding of marketing principles, social media and e-commerce have also helped us shape our online strategy. I highly recommend working with Chris on your next project!

Chris designed both a logo and website for my business. I have been really impressed with his ability as a graphic artist both from a creative and business perspective. Chris brings himself fully to his projects. He has a strong creative ability which combined with the real attention he gives to understanding his clients’ needs throughout the process result in excellent work.

The logo design Chris created for my business was unique, beautiful and heart-touching. I have been very happy also with my website and have had a lot of positive feedback about it from both colleagues and clients.

I found Chris to be very professional in all my dealings with him. He is clear and insightful in his communication and his design work is of an exceptional standard. I highly recommend Chris as a graphic and website designer.

We recently decided to update our company brand, so I contacted Chris on advice from a friend and couldn’t be happier with the result. When we met he listened to what we were looking to achieve and the particular direction we wanted to head in. Then he came up with an option that was a clear winner as far as we were concerned. He used a combination of the business we are in and the history of the company to produce a range of products including our logo, letterhead and business cards. Chris was great to deal with, he takes a great deal of pride in his work, and will not compromise on quality. We have received a lot of positive feedback on our new image and feel it gives us the professional look we were after. I have since recommended him on a number of occasions and will continue to do so.

Christopher Reid and Stimulus Creative have been very generous with their expertise, advice and design, helping The Little River Wairewa Community Trust with their Summer Festival promotional material. They have designed a professional looking brochure as well as a large scale banner, both of which look fantastic. They help secure the best printing price and managed production and delivery of the marketing material. Stimulus Creative were very efficient and delivered on time in a professional manner. We will definitely be using them again.

Christopher has done a fantastic job of developing, designing and managing a site of a mutual client of ours. Every contact I have had with him has been professional and pleasant. Extremely capable and with high integrity.

I approached Christopher to develop a new logo for my Landscape Architecture business. I had to move my business in a new direction. I needed Chris to take the reins and he did so with gusto. It was obvious to me Chris had talent, but I wasn’t sure about the process.  To my relief and satisfaction, the process was relatively seamless, and at times thoroughly enjoyable. Chris exceeded my expectations on all accounts.  He not only managed to do what at times seemed the impossible (in pulling together over 10 years of work), but he did so with a friendly, positive attitude. His creative suggestions encouraged me to think outside the square, and his communication was at all times clear, concise, and courteous.  This felt like a partnership and the end result has been very good.  The essence of who I am in relation to my work in the world has been very well captured, and I am delighted with the outcome.  I would not hesitate in recommending Christopher Reid to you as a graphic and website designer.

When I first talked to Chris in regard to the design for my new business I wondered how he would get all the jumbled ideas out of my head and into something that “worked”. I wanted the theme and logo to capture my personality. The colours needed to work and signify my cheerful disposition along with the professionalism of my industry. On top of that I wanted something with an edge that stood out but also stood for stability and would capture the Christchurch market. Chris blew me away. I loved it right from the start and with hardly any changes it all came together beautifully which also saved money and time. I would highly recommend Chris to anyone. He has amazing listening and interpretive skills and  fabulous creative ability and to top it off he is refreshingly down to earth and approachable which is the first thing I take notice of! Thanks Chris- Love your work!

Our new website has now been in action for 3 months and I am happy to report that it has been viewed with great enthusiasm by the membership. Our old site was a design disaster: ugly to look at and difficult to use: it used to be a great place to hide documents! So our members, who are mostly heavy users of the site have enjoyed your clean and clear design, elegant colour scheme and common sense layout. Thanks so much. We’ll be back in touch next time we are looking for web design input.

Christopher took the time to get to know me and my business to enable him to produce the perfect logo for me. His work is detailed and accurate.

– JANE GILDER, SEW KNOW HOW


I highly recommend Christopher’s service to anyone wanting a unique personalised branding for their company or products. His individualised, intuitive style produced exactly what I was looking for.

– DHARAN LONGLEY, INSIGHT EDUCATION


We commissioned Chris to design our company logo and business card. We wanted a natural earthy look to the design to match our business as organic vegetable producers. We felt he created our logo has a visual representation of what we do, in a simple but effective design. Chris consulted with us throughout the entire process in a professional and easy manner to achieve the desired outcome. We were very happy with the end result and would not hesitate to recommend Chris and Stimulus Creative to others.

– LORAINE LIDDLE, FIELD TO FEAST ORGANICS


I felt completely understood for what I wanted on a unique level. What we do and what we are about was clearly felt and understood from the start so creating the final logo seemed like a natural process. It was an exciting, professional & easy process. It is obvious you have a passion for design and a confidence in your work which made me feel at ease. I still look at the Amala logo/signage etc and feel it is the perfect expression of the business! I love the end results.
