Research shows that visitors to business websites can make up their mind about whether they would like to be your customer in just 50 milliseconds. And it’s good design that captures them in this ‘blink’ moment, not your cleverly worded text or compelling promotional offer. It’s the carefully crafted layout, colour palette, spacing and imagery that create an immediate, instinctive response – to stay and find out more, or return to their search results and look at one of your competitors.
But a website is no good if it is all beauty and no brains. We are experts at search engine optimisation (SEO), and think about it right from the first conversation we have with you. Once customers find your website and the design convinces them they want to know more, then layout, visual hierarchy and quality content ensures a high conversion rate, whether you’re wanting to generate enquiries, quote requests, newsletter sign-ups, sales or foot traffic.
Whether the right look is contemporary or vintage, minimalist, corporate or quirky, our stunning user-friendly designs are second to none.
All our websites are fully mobile optimised, with responsive designs for all screen sizes. Essential both for web users and search engines.
Website page structures, headings, content, copyediting, image optimisation, code and techniques that search engines like Google love.
Our websites bring customers to your business, whether your aim is to generate enquiries, sales, advertising or people through the door.
All our websites are built using the powerful WordPress content management system, so you can save money by updating text and images yourself.
For the month following launch, any updates or minor changes to your website are done free of charge as part of our service.
We pride ourselves in being adaptable so that we can work with a broad range of businesses, from local start-ups to regional corporates and community not-for-profits. Primarily our websites are custom-built in the WordPress content management system with bespoke designs. This gives us the flexibility to design a site that both looks fantastic yet can be built within the budget available.
Our designs are created to appeal to your target market; we don’t trot out the same look time and time again. From cool retro/vintage looks to cutting edge ‘mobile-first’ designs, we make sure the unique personality of your business shines through.
We’re so passionate about what good design can do for your business, that we can even offer a monthly payment plan to help you spread the costs.
We go through your business objectives, branding and style preferences, your target customers and what they need from your website.
We research how customers search for products or services like yours and how your competitors and aspirational businesses present themselves online, to inform your new website's page structure and design.
We design your homepage and one other key page to share with you. After iterating these based on your feedback, we design the remaining pages and variations for different screen sizes.
We build your new website to work on all screen sizes, edit all the written content and code for search engines, optimise images, and make hundreds of tiny adjustments to ensure everything is perfect.
Once you have reviewed the final website, we 'go live'. We fix any technical 'bugs' that arise, install security measures and a back-up system, then train you on how to update your site if you wish to.

I was very satisfied with the work completed by Handmade Web & Design in developing our new logo and website.

Lawn Solutions Australia required a complete site re-build. We had a very unique concept to convey to our users and a group of over 40 of Australia’s best turf producers – we had a lot of people to please. Handmade Web & Design more than met our expectations. They took the time to get to know our stakeholders and our users, and did not scrimp on the due diligence. Not only were we pleased with the end result, we were very pleased when the site was ready one week early!
We have been delighted with Handmade Web & Design’s creativity and professional approach to design.

From the first contact, Anthony & Emma were a pleasure to deal with.

Handmade Web & Design have been a lifesaver. They are approachable, creative, clever and honest.

Commissioning Handmade Web & Design to design our website was the best advertising decision we have made. The team were so easy to work with and we love that we are constantly the first hit on an internet search!
I would definitely recommend Handmade Web & Design. We particularly liked that they gave us several web building options to suit different budgets, and didn’t push the most expensive. They also gave advice on current design trends, but also listened to what we thought suited our company ‘personality’ and blended both to create a professional site unique to us.
Handmade Web has single handedly changed my business. Since the website has been up and running, Garnish has more than doubled its sales. They have played a major role in the success of my business and I think myself lucky that I got the opportunity to work with people who wanted Garnish to be just as successful as I do.
Despite our offices being many kilometres apart, we were able to produce logos, business cards, fliers and a website that reflected my design philosophy – individual, personal, creative. I am very pleased with the result and thoroughly enjoyed working with the team.
Handmade Web & Design is based on creative solutions, quality product and great service. I can truly recommend their services… They have helped establish my company with an online presence and made Design Code Interiors a unique and eye catching brand.
