We are Manawatu's full service design agency, transforming and evolving businesses throughout New Zealand since 1999. With a team who each bring their own specialisation to the table we take a fresh, unique approach by merging creative design with digital marketing.


Borne out of PBB (Performance Beef Breeders), Pivot’s origins lie in being the in-house design division for the beef-breeding associations of New Zealand.  We are a tight-knit, friendly bunch of designers conveniently located in Feilding.  As a part of PBB, we understand both commercial and agricultural industries.

Pivot Design brings 30 years of designing and printing experience to our clients. We have purposely partnered with reliable and quality printing companies across New Zealand which guarantees a print turn around time.  We keep it local – proudly recruiting local services, regional businesses and endlessly supporting our local community. We provide in-house quality digital printing, back-up support and IT specialists.

The relationships built over 20 years of working alongside farmers and businesses locally and nationally has built our extensive repertoire of skills. We work alongside numerous beef and sheep breeders – we are passionate about helping them and all our clients reach their full potential. We have a deep understanding of businesses and farmers and their pain points. Pivot Design consistently aims to find the best channels to use to engage a target audience and to give our clients a competitive edge.

Our Values


We consistently aim to excel in our field through constant research in order to provide better services and products to our clients.


We get to know our clients and who they aim to reach prior to designing. This allows us to find the best channels to use and engage with our client’s audience.


Our quality of service is based on each and everyone’s individuality, honesty
and transparency towards one another.


We embrace change and understand that we are in a constantly evolving technological era. We strive to know and grow our talents and skills at work and aim to deliever what our clients need now and for the future.

Wonderful!! Really well done, you have made an awesome job of this thank you. Comments from the members of the sponsorship committee are really positive with how well it has come up; the photos have captured the East Coast theme very well. Chocolate fish all round.

The canvases arrived today and look brilliant, I’ve already phoned my sister in excitement! Thanks very much… I am sure that when the other grandchildren reach 2 years we’ll be contacting you for their protraits too… and I think I might get onto a project or two in the New year for us.

We had a tour meeting last night and someone brought along their booklet that had already arrived in the mail. Everyone is really pleased with it, they are well set-out and look very professional – I’m sure everyone will be impressed with when they receive them in the mail with their newsletter. So thank you for doing a great job and you were a pleasure to deal with.

Your customer service is fantastic!



Thanks Adele, By the way, you were formally acknowledged and thanked for your great contribution to the magazines success, in the report given on the Highland Advantage, at NHR’s AGM on Saturday. I want to say again how much I enjoy working with you on this, and that your professionalism is appreciated.

Tigh Mor Highlands

When we needed to replace our outdated website we wanted to work with someone local who would be patient enough to deal with a “semi-literate” computer user. The Pivot team has provided us with a cost effective & user friendly website that we’ve been able to grow at our own pace. Any help is a quick email/phone call away & is dealt with quickly & efficiently. We have no hesitation in recommending Pivot Design to anyone.
