Barbi Larkins

Design Guru

My name is Barbi Larkins. I design things. I am a Christchurch based freelance WordPress web designer with a penchant for good design and a belief that it doesn’t have to be unaffordable for those who need it.

I’ve spent years in business, just where you are – trying to find the best way to raise my business profile while keeping a close eye on my marketing budget.

I started Be Design as a friendly source for graphic and web design. Let’s be honest – graphic and web design can be expensive and often out of reach for small to mid-sized businesses and non-profit groups. Be Design specialises in solutions. I won’t quote you an exoribant rate and expect you to take it or leave it. Instead, we’ll assess your needs and how they can best be met within your budget. Because, if you’re like me, you would rather spend your hard-earned marketing budget on good design than on someone else’s overhead and fancy office. 

Whoever you want to be, I want to be the one to help.

Be Design is amazing to work with. Barbi is very creative, easy to work with, flexible, and can competently handle a wide range of projects. She's my go-to person when I need help with anything -- print or web -- and I'm over the moon to be working with her.
An awesome website developer who was so affordable and easy to work with. I appreciate her patience and I love the end result! I am totally recommending her to everyone!
