Creating the right style of web site that is the best fit for your business is an important part of web design.
We take time to understand the target audience you wish to appeal to, as well as the business image you wish to convey.
Because we are also graphic designers, we can create the perfect custom ‘look’ for your web site.
You can maintain your website content or we can take care of that for you, ask us about our web site maintenance options.
Website content is a balancing act between text, imagery and functional additions.
We will guide you as to how much of each type of content is required and suggest options to maximise the delivery of your content to your web site audience.
Whether you need a shopping cart to sell online, a beautiful gallery to display images, custom contact forms, or database driven content, we can design the web site you need to best promote your business.
DOMAINS & HOSTING
All web sites need a domain name and a place to host the web site.
We can arrange the purchase of a domain name for you or use one you already have.
We offer 100% Australian web site hosting as well and will set this up for you. If you already have hosting we can use that if preferred.
We can also assist you in setting up your email accounts on your computer.

Search Engine Optimisation is the name used to refer to several processes that a web designer undertakes to increase the visibility of a web site to Search Engines.
When we say ‘search engine’ we are referring to the likes of Google, Yahoo and Bing.
The purpose of SEO is to increase traffic to your web site and this in turn can become a ‘conversion’ which is a sale or enquiry generated from your web site.
All our websites come with our standard SEO package.
Multi page or a simple single page web presence
E-Commerce web sites with shopping cart
Customised for best mobile experience
Custom databases, booking systems & forms

HOW DO WE MAKE CUSTOM DESIGN SO AFFORDABLE?
What sets us apart from other web designers is our extended skill set.
What this means for you is that we don’t have to outsource the web graphics used to create your custom look to a graphic designer or employ one. We keep costs down by being able to do all the work in house.
You speak directly to the person who will be creating your web site design, so your thoughts and ideas about how you want your site to look are being conveyed directly to the person best able to create that look for you. This means less time wasted conveying concepts to a third party.
You can tell when a web designer has no graphic design skills, those poorly rendered images, mismatched colours and clunky image cut outs on the designers own site means - that is what you will be getting as well!
Don’t settle for uninspiring, bland and dated, disorganised looking websites. You only have one chance to impress clients - make first impressions count.
We don’t spend a fortune on maintaining an unnecessary retail outlet, especially when many of our clients are not local to where we are. We save time not having to commute to the office and this gives us more time to devote to your project and keep our prices affordable.
Most of our client conversations are done over the phone or by email, but if you are local we are happy to meet you over a coffee to discuss your web site needs.
We have spent several years mastering software that allows us to design your web site faster and more efficiently.
We continually keep track of web studies that give us insights into how people interact with web sites and changes to SEO to keep your site current.
By fully utilising our diverse skills and learning how to streamline our processes over 8 years of running our own web and graphic design business, we save time, and this saves you money.
WHAT IS CUSTOM DESIGN?
Have you noticed how many websites today look almost the same, with very little unique styling?
This is because a lot of web designers rely on pre made templates using Wordpress or similar programs, which they buy and then try to adapt to suit your business needs.
We do the complete opposite, we start with a blank canvas, then create from the ground up a site that is unique to you and exactly meets your business needs.
That is custom design.
The web is growing larger by the day, so standing out from the blur of the many similar looking web sites is important.
We help you stand out from the crowd

Did you know how your web site ‘looks’ affects your business?
One study has showed that factors for rejecting or mistrusting a website were 94% design related & only 6% content related. Some of the specific problems mentioned for mistrusting a web site were a boring web design with lack of colour, poor navigation & having a corporate looking design.
You have less than a second to make a good first impression
Web studies show that people subconsciously assess a web sites professionalism & trust worthiness in less than a second! Solely based on visual appearance.
Your web sites appearance can build or break trust!
The first impression of your site has ongoing consequences
The ‘halo effect’ is where the first impression of your site will influence a viewers ongoing perception of your web sites credibility & usability into the future. It will also go on to colour their view of all aspects of your business!
