We work in close collaboration with our clients, every step of the journey.
Where the client is time poor and unable to join in the ride, we keep you updated along the way!
Whilst we thrive on developing fresh & original content we encourage spending time to research comparable sites & to identify client appropriate design handwriting.
We have experts in the front end for both user interface design (how things look) and user experience (how things work).
We always thoroughly test for user experience as well as function and rendering on a myriad of devices, browsers and operating systems.

Words can only go so far when defining project ideas.
Exploring design concepts and mockups is invaluable. We work with a highly experienced team, particularly expert at exploring client requirements and developing concepts to support best practice user experience.
We apply this thinking to all our projects, regardless of website, web-app or mobile application.
We are specialists in creating sites and web apps which comply with WCAG (Web Compatibility & Accessibility Guidelines). Compliant sites benefit from features which enable users to get the full site experience. For example, those with vision difficulties will benefit from sites designed to provide scaleable type and visual contrast between graphical elements. Sites can also be navigated with specialised keyboards (rather than mouse which relies on seeing pointers). Sophisticated screen reading technology provides an audio translation / description of content.
For those with hearing difficulties audio content within the site is provided in captions.
We combine skills in graphic design with specialised coding to ensure our projects pass testing. WCAG compliance is a complex and specialised field. There are varied levels such as 2.0, 2.1 and 3.0 is on the way soon. Then there are specific requirements falling under categories such as A, AA and AAA. Many Australian Government sites will specify a minimum requirement of 2.0 AA. We can build new sites from the ground up or add compliance to your existing site.
We ensure all of our websites and web-apps are optimized for us across all devices (Desktop, Laptop, Tablet, Mobile & Operating Systems (Mac OS ®, Microsoft Windows ®, Android ® etc.)
Our sites are built to reformat automatically for all screen sizes, and screen orientations (e.g shifting from Landscape to Portrait.)
We use sophisticated tools to ensure complex site functionality performs and renders correctly on the widest range of devices (Desktop, Tablet, IPhone ®, Android ®), browsers and operating systems.
As of early 2018 all Australian businesses with a turnover of 3 million+ is required to notify the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner of any significant data breaches.
These laws also apply to some smaller businesses such as those that handle health data.
We work with many FinTech clients, so best practice for security is in our DNA. We advocate hosting with AWS or Azure, benefiting from their strength.
We also encourage a Cloudflare overlay to maximise throughput, up-time and security. We follow the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) standards.
