Effective web design and intelligent media ideas

Independent Holdings is me, Paul Evans, and for the last 15 years in Nelson I've spent my business life giving birth (nearly always painfully) to some really strong brands - designed, populated and maintained some very effective websites and created some pretty clever marketing ideas for an eclectic range of clients.

During this time I've also played about 379 games of football (it's not called soccer) - drunk (conservatively estimated) 28,094 piccolo espresso coffees - moved homes (a bloody annoying) 9 times and coached about 235 of the most brilliant and entertaining young goalkeepers this region has to offer.


I was just about to write enough about me - but hey, this is my website so I'll keep going. Like a 'mechanics car', a 'plumbers sink', an 'electricians lights' or a 'landscapers garden' I never seem to have time to finish my own website. But, I'm hopeful there's enough here for you to get an idea of what I'm all about and you may want to get in touch. There's a bit more business information below (which I will finish very shortly) if you require more info. 


I'll try and keep things simple, so here it is: Independent Holdings is a founding member, active contractor and Director of nakedshop, netMaestro and The Seven Design Secrets That Transform Businesses into Brands.   involved 15 years I've been  Holdings has been at the forefront of designing good looking websites that achieve clients objectives.

Any spare time has been filled with roles as Creative Director and App. writer for Tourism Radio New Zealand, as a Radio tutor at N.M.I.T. for their Media Skills Course and the Nelson Academy Goalkeeping Coach for the next generation of aspiring Glen Moss'.
