How the name was created:
“(Brainstorming for names between Steve and Rik ended with ‘Resin’. So off they went to buy ‘resin.co.nz’ but it was taken. So what did they do? They just removed the “i” and bought resn.co.nz. The name has helped us come up with joke company mottos like “We’re all a team. There is no ‘i’ in Resn”. It was actually really helpful for tracking our activity with Google searches due to it being rather unique… until Nike launched a pair of shoes called ‘RESN’. Thanks Nike!)”

They use their website to scare away the wrong clients and attract the right clients.
A client filter as they call it. “The website has had a few ‘versions’ you could say. It evolves and that is how we intended it to be.”
They wanted a stage to present their portfolio of work but also give the crew a space to play and display.
So their website is a way to make a first impression on the client.
