I’m Ben, the Founder and Director of Presence Design.
Small business is the best, isn't it?
I’ve known that I wanted to start a business of my own that could have a positive influence on the world since I was a child. This dream began in 2003 when I was gifted my first copy of Zoo Tycoon, and now it's developed into a real business with a passion for helping people forge their own path, but unfortunately without all the beautiful endangered animals and bond villain attire.
The future I strive for is one where the small business' of NZ become the norm. A future where you only go to the big guys when your local doesn't have something you're after.
Where better than New Zealand for a future like this? A place where dairy owners are trading at ridiculous hours for you to grab milk, because the supermarket's self-checkouts are down... again. Where there is always someone next door or around the corner who knows how to fix your tap. Where you can get an electrician on mate's rates by complaining about power issues to your neighbour's second cousin at the street bbq.
Small businesses, small biz owners, and freelancers come with passion and heart that you just can't find anywhere else, and I hope to reflect this passion and heart in our work to make your business look great.
So let's start designing this future, together. Let's start by giving your business one hell of a presence.
