"Have fun on your creative journey with Cheeky Upstart. Cheeky Upstart is the place to go if you want a website sorted!
We had some pretty clear ideas about what we wanted for our new website and were absolutely blown away with what was delivered!
We asked for a quote and a timeline and shared some of our hopes and dreams. Next thing, the site is live (before deadline) and is delivered to a standard well beyond the scope and functionality expected.
This website has changed the face of our charity.
Based on our experience, we highly recommend Cheeky Upstart. We trust Justin explicitly. He is a details guy. He owns it. He loves it. He gets things just right. He cares. He talks to you. And because we’re in Auckland, we’ve never even met him face-to-face!
May you enjoy the whole experience as much as we have."
"I have had the pleasure of working with Justin as a web developer twice. Once for my counselling business website and again for the developing of the New Zealand Community for Emotionally Focused Therapy (NZCEFT) website.
I have always found Justin accessible and extremely helpful to work with. He has done an outstanding job of our NZCEFT website. He has been very in tune with the audience of people we are trying to reach and has been extremely helpful in creating a website that reaches that audience.
I have not felt rushed or pressured by him to make decisions or meet deadlines. He has always listened to my suggestions, questions and concerns and has made time to help me understand if something is not workable.
I can confidently recommend Justin and his work, I believe that you will not be disappointed in the end product." Liz Cammock - NZ Community for Emotionally Focused Therapy (NZCEFT) www.nzceft.org
"I am so pleased I found Justin and Cheeky Upstart. The new website for Unity Holistic Counselling is exactly what I dreamed of.
Better yet Justin took care of the process every step of the way. I wanted somebody who was not only website savvy, but could also make website creation possible and easy for a person like myself who has never attempted setting up a website before. I found him!
Always helpful, positive and ready to go the extra mile I am extremely grateful to Justin. I can wholeheartedly recommend his services." Sarah Wright - Unity Holistic Counselling www.unityholistic.co.nz
"Justin has been incredible to work with. He has worked tirelessly to develop an amazing new website for us that supports the work we do at HELP and also supports us to better engage with our community and with the media.
But not only that - he has located a whole range of skilled and talented people that have helped make that happen - designers and filmmakers who have also gone above and beyond in assisting us to shine. Justin has become more than a colleague to us - we at Wellington Sexual Abuse HELP now consider him a lifelong friend."
"I have been working in the not for profit sector in New Zealand for some 20 years and during that time I have found it incredibly frustrating and difficult to find companies and people that understand this sector.
Sexual Abuse would have to be one of the hardest causes to market. But from the outset Justin understood our type of work and what we wanted to achieve with a new look website.
He is passionate, articulate, honest, and creative. But most importantly he delivered an amazing functional website that we are so proud of. He comes highly recommended. You won’t be disappointed." Leanne Ryburn - Fundraising Manager - HELP Auckland www.helpauckland.org.nz
"Justin has done fantastic work for us across web development, marketing, skilled-volunteer recruitment and event management. We wouldn't be where we are now without him.
He is a talented web designer with great initiative and an expert in communications and marketing. He created a wonderful website for us which has drawn a lot of praise. The content he created for it was well researched and the website has functions we hadn’t even considered!" Richard Jeffrey - Chief Executive - MOSAIC - Supporting Male Survivors of Sexual Abuse www.mosaic-wgtn.org.nz
"Our small charity needed an updated and more modern website. Justin from ‘Cheeky Upstart’ was referred to us as someone who would be ideal to do this work for us.
Justin was consistently positive and excited about the project and there was never a time when anything was too much of an issue for him.
Justin was never short of ideas and strategies and he developed & expanded our own knowledge of websites – specifically those belonging to charities – making a website that is timeless, modern and engaging.
We really valued the fact that Justin managed many aspects of the process for us that we didn’t have the time for and we are thrilled with the outcome. We can’t recommend Justin highly enough." Dayna Atkinson - General Manager - The Argo Trust www.argo.org.nz
"My new website has just gone live and I am very pleased with the beautiful work Justin has done.
He has worked incredibly hard to attune to what I wanted in a website and stayed with me in the process to make all the hundreds of changes I suggested.
I would like to highly recommend Justin to anyone who wants a great website and a fantastic guy to work with! Thank you Justin :)" Heike McCahon - Counsellor - Life Matters www.christchurchcounselling.co.nz
"Word of mouth is always the best way to discover a service provider isn’t it, and sure enough that is how I came to know Justin and I am so GRATEFUL for it.
Website making was a very unknown world to me but Justin took care of all of it. That was amazing! He has the framework and tools to make this, what can be overwhelming, task of creating a website much more manageable. He even created my logo and business cards.
I was thankful for the effort he gave to understanding who I am, so that he can create an accurate impression/description of me on the screen. I was also grateful for him doing serious research to understand the service I am promoting through the web.
My site looks modern, attractive and exciting. I am so happy about it.
I am in a caring profession but I was humbled by the way he shows his care in making this site on-behalf of me. I wholeheartedly recommend Justin and his work to you." Fumiko Wakeham - Director - Wakeham Counselling www.wakeham.co.nz
"I have found Justin really easy to work with and very helpful. He has always been available to talk through my ideas or concerns about my website and very encouraging of my ideas.
He works hard and fast and was very committed to making sure that I got what I wanted and that I was happy with the end product. He has been very patient with me changing my mind, often.
I am very pleased with what Justin has done and the end result has been very satisfying for me. I think we created something really good together. Thank you Justin!" Liz Cammock - Director - Couples Counselling Christchurch www.couplescounsellingchch.com
"Justin, I would like to express my thanks for the work you have done for Emerge Supported Employment Trust.
You conducted a workshop and developed a printed resource for our staff to use, and they are now confident to use a structured, positive approach method in finding employment opportunities for our clients. This in turn will help our organisation’s goal for more jobs for people with disabilities.
You have also provided one-on-one mentoring for our team members, which has been proved an effective way of developing their confidence.
Your positive, approachable, realistic and responsive manner in presenting information and coaching staff has been a true breath of fresh air.
I would have no reservation in recommending your services to any organisation, or individual, seeking to improve and strengthen the skills and confidence in building relationships with customers and clients." Linda Fisher - Operations Manager - Emerge Supported Employment Trust
"Justin has given Vincents Art Workshop extraordinary support with the design of a programme of video interviews with artists at Vincents. He was thoroughly professional, imaginative and enthusiastic.
These interviews are a great resource for our profile raising. He interviewed people for the roles of small film production and he has been personally involved with the programme throughout. I can't speak too highly of him.
He has become a treasured asset to Vincents and we hope to have a long association with him. Thank you Justin!" Glen McDonald - Coordinator - Vincents Art Workshop
"We engaged Justin Meade to create a website for our new training & education organisation. We were very happy with the final product and we have received positive feedback about the layout and ease of use of the website.
The content and images of the website were also very professional and informative to the readers of the website. Justin is great to work with and has a pleasant personality with a positive, friendly approach. He has good knowledge and a passion for the Not for Profit sector which was invaluable when developing the website."
"Justin recently set up two websites for my new businesses, Love Your Space and Zen Clean.
He has communicated well, keeping me informed along the way of what he needed from me and where things were up to. He is patient, enthusiastic, responsive and collaborative, making changes as required, as well as empowering me to use the website myself, to my own needs.
He has also been a great support during the start-up phase of my businesses, with a wealth of knowledge from his work and life experience.
I recommend his services to anyone needing website expertise at a great price."

I found him to be very knowledgeable in these areas, willing to listen to our requirements, steering us in the right direction, giving advice and instruction where needed.
Understanding our needs, he worked hard to match us with the right people, also offering his own voluntary help and support. I found him to be very pleasant to deal with and would consider his help and input to be any asset to any organisation. I would gladly work with him again." Diane Taylor - Fundraising and Marketing Manager - Prison Fellowship New Zealand

"I have just started my first business, and Justin has been amazing at helping my to set it up! He created my website, social media and marketing communication collateral.
He then gave me amazing coaching around how to competitively position my business, sales & marketing strategy and basically everything I need to know about running a successful small business.
He even created a step-by-step sales action plan that was entirely customised to my target markets and potential client groups.
Thanks heaps Justin!" Claude Foley - Director - Claude - Computer Solutions for Seniors www.claude.co.nz
