About us

What we can do for you

More Than Design is a one stop shop for business owners who are looking for a helping hand with marketing, accounts and business systems. Whether you are starting a new company or looking at ways to grow your existing business, we offer  consultancy and design packages to make your life easier.

We are efficient and very affordable, and we always go the extra mile to ensure our customers are satisfied.

How did it all start?

We are two professionals who were taking time out from our marketing, graphic design, and website-creating jobs to spend time with our children. This brought us together at Beachlands-Maraetai Playcentre nearly four years ago. While we were being creative with our kids and socialising with our peers, we realised we share a passion for helping businesses succeed. We decided to combine our knowledge and expertise to create a one-stop shop—a design, marketing and modern accounting company serving start-ups and small-to-medium-size businesses.

Why do we think we can be helpful?

Our background
Dana Ruediger

Marketing and design skills
After achieving my masters in economics majoring in marketing and sales, followed by seven years of practical experience, I decided to leave the Czech Republic and experience six months of life on the other side of the globe. Things couldn’t have turned out more differently than I’d planned. I never imagined I would end up starting up my own publishing business, getting calendars printed overseas, and selling them across all of New Zealand—even being part of the Rugby World Cup 2011 as one of the licensees. It all was a great experience, and I look forward to using my marketing and graphic/web design expertise to help other businesses grow.

Strategic accountant

With over 15 years experience in IT and Finance positions, what can I say, I love numbers and systems!
I have worked in a wide range of positions being exposed to the front line and data entry of a business through to reporting and anaylsis of that data. My experience includes system upgrades and user training from small business to large corporations.
My most recent success was working on a sales order automation project where 70% of orders were automated and resulted in the reduction of 2 full time positions.
I am now focusing on being a Xero partner and helping small businesses (I’m not sure why finance is not their favourite part!) and am freelancing. I can help with system setup, data entry and reconciliation, invoicing and debtors, financial reporting, GST/FBT, business process analysis and more.
