The Fine Art of Web Design
There’s an art to web design. Much of the art comes from experience and genuine interest. It’s important to understand how various web browsers present web pages and how to present information in a clear manner. Add to this an understanding of graphic design, programming and how people come to visit a web site. These are just a few keys to the fine art of web design that we feel are important.
We take great care to ensure your web site is pleasing visually as well as being informative.

Our Web Design Work Flow
We work with you to find out what your needs are for your site and what you want to accomplish. We do this either in person, on the phone or in Email. We can also communicate with you via Skype or other means upon request.
Once we have an outline of what’s expected and your preferences, we go to work creating your site. When it’s ready, we show it to you in a password protected area so that you can offer suggestions for changes and once you’re happy, the site is made live.
For most design work, payment is not required until the site is finished and made live. Occasionally with larger jobs, we may request partial payment in advance. We accept PayPal, credit cards (via PayPal), and for Australians, will also accept bank deposit and cheques.
We will only develop and launch sites on our own servers. This is to ensure reliability and avoid pitfalls of server limitations.
As we are a small business, we know each of our clients on a first name basis. This is one of the areas where the ‘personal touch’ can make a difference between having an ordinary website and one that really shines.
Please feel free to contact us about your website. We’d be happy to work with you.
