Our background is in corprate graphic design producing marketing collateral and financial reports using MS Office.

Our background is in corporate graphic design producing marketing collateral and all manner of financial reports and tender documents. Adobe Creative Suite was the tool of trade used in most design departments.

We saw a gradual shift where many organisations wanted their staff to revise (and create) their own documents. They wanted to use tools they were familiar with: Word and PowerPoint. So why not create on-brand documents and templates non-designers could use? We formed Officentral in 2009 to specialise in this area.

We became Cordestra in 2015 and continue using our design and formatting skills to produce professional, easy-to-use Microsoft Office documents and templates everybody can use.

We work with studios and ad agencies converting their designs into MS Office formats for their clients. We also create template sets for corporate companies wanting to utilise their brand guidelines across all their office and marketing communications.

You can’t do good work without good clients. We’ve worked with some fantastic people, and we thank them for their positive feedback.

Cordestra came to our rescue when we needed dozens of Word templates automated for online use. No matter how complex the forms were Peter and Susan managed to come up with designs that were clear and simple to use – just what we needed! They have also worked with us putting together instruction manuals with beautiful covers and dividing tabs. They are now being used throughout the organisation.

The biggest job that Officentral did for us was to build a series of instructional websites, entirely self-contained on CD and USB drives, for distribution to remote international offices.

Peter and Susan have formatted many documents for us from abbreviated and amended script. Their work is first class and they will always be my first point of contact for assistance. I would not hesitate in recommending Officentral to other organisations.

KATHLEEN RICHARDSON, Save the Children Australia

Peter has extraordinary ability across all aspects of digital design and specialises in technical troubleshooting for office documents in both PC and Mac platforms. Highly recommend his work and business services.


I highly recommend Peter and Susan at Cordestra. We started with the complex problem of Word and Office templates that were difficult to use, hard to access and poorly formatted. Through their knowledge, Cordestra were able to understand the problem and assure us there was a solution. More importantly, it was a practical solution that made the complex seem easy.

Peter and Susan worked closely with us and provided insight that meant the outcome was beyond our original thinking. This added value to the service we provide to our staff in giving them easy to use practical tools and templates.

KERRY POWER, Victorian Managed Insurance Authority (VMIA)

You seem to understand quickly what we are looking to achieve. I really appreciate the help you have provided and am referring you everywhere.

DAVID WASSELL, Promotif Promotional Merchandise

I have to say the service received from start to finish has been exceptional. I’ll definitely be coming back if more documents need formatting throughout the year.

TOM NOCK, National Union of Students

Pete Hewson has built three websites for our business – each has been better than we had hoped. Pete is great at taking your original requirements and not only delivering on them but finding ways to make the site even better and more user friendly. His work is alway accurate, he is great to deal with – nothing is too much of problem – he finds solutions when the answer is not obvious and will see the project right through to conclusion.

Pete has a great eye for design and brings a wealth of knowledge that I believe would benefit any size of project. I couldn’t recommend him more highly and we will continue to use his great services going forward.
