CampingTaiwan bespoke multilanguage website design

Camping​Taiwan

I am pretty sure the phrase ‘happy camper’ was coined about Camping​Taiwan’s Joel Agostino. Add some stellar branding and a slick multi-language website and you get one totally stoked client.

Kind Words

Building websites is a sizeable undertaking and can be a stressful process. Working with Steve was a joy due to his proactive and knowledgeable approach. He speaks in easy-to-understand terms and know when to listen to the client's needs and when to make executive decisions which move the process along quickly, whilst meeting the needs of the brief. Steve went above and beyond on our Loading Docs website build and the finished product was better than we ever expected it terms of design, functionality and UX. Honest, straightforward and talented. Highly-recommend!

Kia ora, I am the Founder of Magrette Timepieces. I don’t have enough good things to say about Steve Leggat. He has done my design work from the very start including branding, print and web. He understands my direction, communicates well and makes deadlines when needed. He doesn’t try and change my vision but does guide me back on track when needed. Like I said I don’t have enough good things to say about him.
Dion McAsey, Magrette Timepieces
After 10 years, 4 websites and countless creative projects Steve has cemented himself as my go to designer and the only person I trust to bring my brands to life. I love his work and so do my clients who get to enjoy firsthand his stunning, creative and engaging websites. Steve has played a huge role in the success of my brands and I look forward to many more projects together.
Joel Agostino, CampingTaiwan
I run a music label ElevenfiftySeven Records, and for the past 15 years Steve has been my go-to designer/web-guy, creating physical & digital album artwork, release schedule collateral, show posters, artist merchandise, website creation and pretty much anything I throw at him. Legend. Oh, & he makes a good coffee.
Steve has been so great to deal with in the building of the new website. Great on comms, delivery, pricing and always goes the extra mile to achieve results. Highly recommended.

[Steve] Leggat displays his prowess by creating user-friendly yet attractive and functional sites that serve their respective audiences well. Simplicity most commonly marks Leggat’s sites, and could be called his signature design feature. With an ultra-modern look and feel, he also exhibits a restraint that contrasts with his often bold use of colour. His design appears innately classical rather than trendy and faddish.
PCWorld Magazine - Hot Designer
Asked Steve to refresh our BigCommerce website, Auckland Martial Arts Supplies, and he did a brilliant job in making the site 100% better. Listened to our needs and kept the whole thing within our budget. Highly recommend!
A decade of storytelling is celebrated on our brand-new [Loading Docs] website, meticulously crafted by the phenomenal Steve Leggat! I hope you all love it!
