The Kitchen Table Web Design Company
Why are you called the Kitchen Table Web design Company Auckland?
There are two reasons. Firstly, because I like to meet my clients around my kitchen table and drink coffee. Our logo is a wifi signal coming from a cup of coffee. Secondly, because I love working with “kitchen table” entrepreneurs. We are all familiar with the myth of the entrepreneur beginning their journey in a humble garage. The founders of Amazon, Apple, Dell, Disney, Google and Microsoft have all made this claim. How about we start telling another story? The home businesses that started around kitchen tables.
I don’t have New Zealand statistics but in the UK, there are 2.9 million ‘homepreneurs’, so-called “kitchen table firms”, they generate £300bn for the UK economy. A third of them trade nationally and an equal number also trade internationally. These are serious businesses. It is not just women, about 40% of these businesses are started by men.
About Tarnya | Website Designer Auckland

Web design is my ideal career. It brings together some diverse strands of who I am:
- Being creative. I have a lifelong love of being creative and making things.
- Geeky. Who remembers the Commodore 64 computer? When I was 12, I enjoyed writing bits of code for fun.
- Marketing. I have a BComm in Marketing and have enjoyed applying these principles to the web.
- A love of learning.
Web design is always changing. It requires innovation and the desire to keep on improving. Being a web designer calls on a wide variety of skills: marketing and business acumen, communication, branding and design, creative problem solving, as well as coding skills.
