Who are New Zealand’s accredited Webflow Partners?
There are currently 4 accredited Professional Webflow Partners in New Zealand. They are: Psychoactive Studios, Almond, Neon Hive and Nikolai Bain.
At this point in time, there are no Webflow Enterprise Partners in New Zealand, nor are there any in Australia. Psychoactive currently has 5 certified Webflow employees, and meets all of the requirements to become an Enterprise Partner, however there is one major consideration to make before making the leap. While we enjoy working with large enterprise companies - and will continue to do so into the future - we feel as though becoming an Enterprise partner may pigeonhole us, and make us feel unapproachable to small and medium size clients.
Who are the other Webflow Designers practicing in New Zealand?
Unicorn Factory, a platform for Kiwi freelancers, and is perhaps the best place to go to find Webflow experts in New Zealand. Starting with the platforms most elite, we have Andrew Hillstead - Founder & Director of Psychoactive studios, Alex Murton - Co-Founder & Director of Almond, Connor Finlayson - No Code Expert & Founder of Unicorn Factory.
Some Webflow superstars include Nikolai Bain, who has co-hosted the Wellington Webflow Meetup with Psychoactive, Grace Potter, who did a web design and Webflow internship with Psychoactive, and Emroy Fierlinger, who has done some work with Psychoactive in the past.
Other up and coming Webflow practitioners on Unicorn Factory include Nikki Gibbons, Uili Fecteau and Jayden Szekely. As the year progresses, we’re sure we’ll see more Webflow designers and developers appear in this space. Keep an eye out!
Upwork is also a helpful website where you can find a few New Zealand based freelancers who have worked with Webflow. The selection however is minimal and apart from Sorithika (Karl) and Nikolai, most don’t seem to have enough relevant portfolio work to effectively showcase their Webflow expertise.
A couple of Kiwi Webflow freelance designers who are showing increasing talent, who are not listed on any directories, but do a good job of marketing themselves include Liv Strawbridge,Dan Palmer and Ronald Van Schaik.
