Deacons of Aotearoa
Non-profit Web Design
Anne approached us on behalf of Diakonia Aotearoa New Zealand Association. They wanted a website that informs and promotes their ministry as well as the ability to offer courses. They ran a Facebook page but felt that was now becoming inadequate for their organisational needs.
From Reverend Anne Russell-Brighty
We are getting lots of compliments about the website.
I am glad that we have a website care plan so I am confident that the website is being well maintained. Also I can give you additional content to add to the site without any additional charges.
I love how you have made our course look on the website.

Catholic Diocese of Auckland
Non-profit Web Design
We provide technical WordPress Support for the Web Administrator on an on-going basis. Recently, (December 2020) worked with Catholic Diocese of Auckland to redesign their main website to mark the release of their Mata kaupapa Mihana — The Diocesan Mission Map with a particular focus on improving user experience.
From the Projects/Systems & Performance Manager, December 2020
We are getting some great feedback on the new design. One person I meet with today told me, “I looked through the new website a couple of days ago and it’s amazing. It’s so clean and well organised. I could find everything I needed. Well done”. It’s feedback like this that makes it all worthwhile – thank you for your input.

From the Website Administrator in 2017
When I started looking for trainers on WordPress it was a very difficult task until I met with Tarnya. She was knowledgeable, professional and so easy to work with. I immediately felt very relaxed after meeting with her and new that the huge task in front of me was going to be a lot easier with her help and support.
She created great training videos, replied to my emails and phone calls really quickly, worked with our IT guys and myself in a professional manner. This has been 2-year partnership that has produced 60 new websites and there are more to come, so having Tarnya working with me makes my job a lot less stressful.
Thank you Tarnya for all that you have done throughout this process.

NZ Catholic - Magazine
Non-profit Web Design
NZ Catholic is an award-winning fortnightly newspaper which is distributed throughout New Zealand.
The website was in need of an update with the following goals:
- The most important function for our newspaper website is clarity of information and readability - on all platforms - from desktop, tablet to mobile. Our job is to tell/share the news.
- We need to include and improve our subscriber/donate panel
- We would want space for video embedding and a digital edition embed
- We want a design that offers white uncluttered backgrounds, simple navigation with clear subscriber buttons, and clear side panels for advertising, social media links and quick links to stories or events.
Thanks so much getting this up and going so quickly - I realise there was a considerable amount of weekend time given up to get this live before the expiry of the old platform.

This project was to move an Html website to WordPress to promote and preserve the writing of Edward Fudge. It had an archive of over 1200 GracEmail blog entries.
The late Edward Fudge wrote about the website when it was first launched
The new website is beautiful, simple, and intuitive. There are tips along the way, drop-downs, search-engines, and the latest tools. The website is new, easy to use and full of interesting and helpful resources. What’s there not to love?
Special thanks to Tarnya Burge, who, redesigned the entire website and imported the content into the site. This lady is a genius whose work is truly extraordinary. We thank God for her fantastic skills and supportive heart.
