Founded on old fashioned customer service and fine tuned with solid, effective design. We make building a website painless.


Formed in 2008 by graphic designer Karl Wischnowsky, Design-o-matic is a relaxed multi-disciplinary website design studio based in Palmerston North, New Zealand.

While building and designing websites is now our core – our collective experience also includes creative thinking and design for branding, packaging, print, publishing, point-of-sale and signage. This range of experience allows us to create effective and cohesive solutions for our clients.


When you work with Design-o-matic you will be dealing directly with Karl throughout the entirety of the project. No account managers, or lost in translation excuses – just directly with the designer himself.  This smaller scale direct relationship means we can offer personalised service and exceptional results at a very efficient rate. We deliver the results of larger design agencies without the fluff and costly overheads. The downside is, we may not have the availability to take on all projects. Touch base to see where we are at with current project schedules and we can always point you to some of our reliable industry partners if we can’t help.

“Elegant, funky, corporate or commercial – Karl’s edgy designs always give me the feel I am looking for.”
