Our Story

Once upon a time there was a brilliant young teacher who was loving working with kids at Albany Primary School, married to a truly amazing woman with their first baby on the way. One day this amazing wife came home from work complaining bitterly about the lack of care and attention taken in the advertising she was trying to get done in the local newspaper. Now this pretty savvy teacher realised that this was the perfect opportunity to put his tech skills together with his wife’s typing prowess and attention to detail and so, all the way back in 1991, Graphic Detail was born.

Starting off slowly Graphic Detail had just the one client in the real estate industry but as people moved from one real estate brand to another they shared our reputation for quality service and ability to consistently over-deliver with their new bosses and before you knew it we were working with most of the real estate companies on the North Shore and many more individual real estate agents. Over the years, while still supporting the real estate industry across New Zealand, we have moved on to many other industries and gone from being typesetters to true marketing professionals. We saw the need to constantly keep ahead of the game and realised that the print industry was slowly but surely going to be superseded by the online marketing options so focussed heavily on providing web solutions as part of what our company offers to our clients and now look after over 300 websites as well as continuing to provide graphic design and marketing assistance to our wide range of clients.

With nearly 30 years’ experience under our belt we are very happy to say that we, and our clients, are well and truly living happily ever after.

You may have noticed that we like to do things with a bit of style and a healthy dose of good fun along the way. We find that our clients quite like that. They also like what we do, so rather than us continuing to share our thoughts we thought we’d share some of our clients’ thoughts this time! We are absolutely thrilled that they love what we do because we love doing it:

Several months ago we decided we needed a WP website to achieve better organic rankings and Graphic Detail came highly recommended. Being very fussy I was slightly concerned about the end result, however my fears quickly melted away as the team was great to work with, nothing was a problem, and the resulting website exceeded my expectations. In the first 30 days we experienced a 186% increase in organic traffic which continues to grow. Highly recommended.

We have hired Mark and his team on many occasions, from everything to Web Design, a new logo and corporate brand for when we re branded our company, and business cards and flyers, and every time they get the result done in a fast and affordable way. ‬ Mark is my go-to anytime I need something designed, Highly recommended.

Building and maintaining your public profile and image are significant drivers of success in our industry. Over many years we have utilized the services of the team at Graphic Detail for design and copywriting and they have always delivered. Often working to unrealistic time frames and with limited information and briefing, their ability to create appropriate and exciting script and design to match and exceed expectation is well proven. I have no hesitation in recommending the team at Graphic Detail to anyone looking to grow and enhance their profile and perception, they are superb professionals in their specialist area. Should anyone require a personal recommendation I would be happy to receive their call.
