Websites

It’s simple! We’re local… or at least in Australia, and we make well designed, functional websites. We approach every website as a design project, as the majority of your customers will value the professional look and feel of your site, rather than the kind of coding and platform used to create it. Our team of web designers/developers will work with you to build a site specific to your needs, from simple flat HTML to custom CSS, PHP and JS you’re in great hands.

Accessibility

Mention accessibility and most designers will turn and run. But we’re happy to provide premium document conversion services for publishing to WCAG compliant accessible PDF, DOC, ePUB and HTML files. We’ve become the go to studio for both government clients and other designers to meet their accessibility requirements. Whether it’s a current document, or a whole back catalogue of information on your website, we can help.

Alternative Text Descriptions

When you’re authoring a document or content for a website, don’t forget to write and provide ‘alt text’ for each image or photograph. This written explanation of what is shown in each image helps screen-reading tools describe images to visually impaired readers and allows search engines to better crawl and rank your website.

Accessibility Checkers

Microsoft Word and Adobe Acrobat have built in Accessibility Checkers which can help you test and correct many of the common issues we find in documents that need to be accessible. These are a great start, however automated checkers cannot test all possible issues hence our staff have done a lot of research and training in accessibility techniques and standards.

Colour Contrast Icon

Colour Contrast

One of the main issues we find is having a bad colour contrast when using coloured text and figures or graphs. The contrast ratio helps determine whether or not the contrast between foreground and background colour combinations can be read by people with colour blindness or other visual impairments.

Branding

We love helping people create or redefine their business, organisation, or campaign. Just like houses or buildings, successful brands are built on strong foundations. Foundations are important as they ensure that you have a solid platform to start from. To set up for success, it’s important to build a strong foundation by knowing who you are and what you stand for.

Brand Workshop

We conduct brand workshops to confirm your business’s or organisations goals, vision and purpose, your core values (what you stand for), your personality, your customers’ needs and wants and how you stack up against your competitors.

Brand Positioning

Brand positioning paints a picture of what you’re promising. It gives context and relevance to your service over your competitors. This is also known as a tagline or a strapline and is what everyone will see in the context of your brand’s communication.

Visual Branding

Your visual brand is all the design elements that show who we are and what we stand for. It includes your logo, colours, graphics, typography, words, and imagery.

Video and Animation

Video is a fantastic tool to hook your audience. Unlike a long-winded text paragraph, video is extremely easy to consume. We can help you create short, concise videos that will capture viewers’ interest instantly.

Video footage needs to look the part, and so we only engage with renowned cinematographers and photographers who will capture your vision as authentically as possible. Do you need help with creative direction before filming? We can be your creative springboard to get you on the road to filming.

Animation

Graphics aren’t static anymore, so we’re embracing the path of motion as a tool to captivate and attract the eyes of your client-base. Be it logos, illustrations, infographics or even photos of your graffiti, a touch of animation gives your graphics that extra punch they need to engage your audience.
