Website Design

Now accepting reservations for website builds commencing in March 2024. Pop your enquiry in now so we can get going on the prep work!

Picture this: Your ideal customer Googles exactly what you offer. Are you going to show up in the search results? If you do, what are they going to see when they click on you?

It’s 2023, and not having a great website will probably damage your business. Potential customers need to know you’re the real deal, and wowing them with a gorgeous website will do so much for your bottom line. Plus, you know, online reservations and stuff.

I specialise in web design for small to medium businesses in the Canberra region and beyond, helping you inject your personality in to a glorious online presence that actually converts. Imagine having a tool that brings paying customers in while you sleep!

Why get professional website design?

Get Found
Online

Most people use Google to find the places, products and services they want. If you’re not online, they might not find you. Don’t risk it – get a website, and a stunning one at that!

Showcase Your Offerings

A website is the best possible place to showcase what you do. Once you’ve got a good website design, it does some of your marketing legwork for you.

Promote Customer Trust

Websites are so important in this day and age that if you don’t have one, potential customers might think you have something to hide.

Take Bookings and Make Money

We’re now in the age of I-just-want-to-book-online-and-not-have-to-call. Letting people book online will skyrocket the number of people coming through the door.

What's included in all my website design packages?

A site that's
right for you

Before we even begin, I’ll take you through a questionnaire to suss out your skills and confidence with websites. Then, we’ll choose a platform which actually works for you – and which you feel confident using. Because there’s no point having the keys to something you can’t drive.

Responsive
design

The websites I create are responsive, which means they look great on desktop and mobile. This means your website will always look fantastic, no matter what device your customers are using. This is super important since about 60% of online traffic now comes from a mobile phone.

A tailored
process

Depending on your budget, your website might be fully-custom, semi-custom or template-based. That means you can have a great-looking website which makes you money – for whatever budget you choose. We can play it safe, or shoot for the moon – the possibilities are endless.

Professional Copywriting

You have the option to get professional copywriting with your website design, so that the words on the page work as well as that gorgeous gorgeous design. If you opt in, I’ll include one of my specialist copywriting partners in your estimate of fees so you know exactly what’s up.

Security

Depending on your needs, we’ll be designing with WordPress, Squarespace, Wix or Shopify. I only work with secure hosts and site providers, enabling a SSL certificate for encryption and adding security plugins for WordPress builds. 

Backups

If your build is a WordPress build, I’ll keep monthly backups to make sure your investment is safe and secure – and you can opt for more frequent backups with a maintenance package.

If you’re based on Squarespace, Wix or Shopify, you’ll have peace of mind with a reputable builder and host who manages their own security.

What's the process for web design?

  1. Enquire with me about website design.
  2. I’ll send through my Website Development Questionnaire.
  3. Based on your answers, I’ll draw up a proposal for you.
  4. You accept your chosen quote and pay a 35% deposit.

    Then…

  5. I start creating your website by going through several phases: research, wireframe, web design, web build, and test.
  6. You get to see what’s happening and give multiple rounds of feedback to make sure your site is exactly how you want it.
  7. Once your website’s finished, I’ll take final payment before transferring you ownership and control – unless you’d rather I keep the keys and maintain it for you!

here's what website design will cost ya.

Origami Graphics uses three different rates for website design, plus value considerations.

All in all, you should expect an absolute minimum investment of $1500 for a simple one-page site, $3000 for a simple five-page site, and $8000+ for a website with a lot of pages or complex integrations like eLearning systems. Your investment will be lower if you opt for a semi-custom or template-based design, and higher if you want a completely custom-designed site.

 If I feel your request is advanced, I’ll refer you on to a specialised web developer or multi-person design agency – cause that’s out of my scope, baby!
