Designsense Graphics & Web

Hello from Design Sense

Welcome to our new-look e-newsletter!

It's been quite a while since we've sent out an e-newsletter. Please read on to find out what we've been up to lately...

Website Security Upgrades

Advances in technology are happening all the time. Unfortunately this means that as web hosting providers make changes, some of the websites that we have created will need to be upgraded. More specifically, the way that our Content Management System connects to the database is slowly being phased out, so it is going to be compulsory for this upgrade to occur for all websites that have a CMS.

Do not wait - your website may suddenly stop working.

Contact us today to get the ball rolling on an upgrade, for a discounted price of $150 + GST*. We will also upgrade the security of your site at the same time at no additional cost.

*For a standard CMS site. Normal price $200 + GST. Urgent demand $250 + GST. Additional cost for advanced CMS and E-Commerce sites.

Changes Developing

Design Sense are going to be restructuring the Web Development side of the business slightly. This will see the introduction of some brand new website packages, and a much more efficient Web Development process. We are confident that these changes will benefit both us and our clients greatly, and we are looking forward to taking on some new projects using our new Web Development model.

Time for a makeover?

Things can change in your business and sometimes websites become outdated in style and content. GIHO has a refreshed design for their website and we’d be happy to talk to you if yours could also do with a make-over!

Latest Logos

Here are some new logos we have designed recently.

Positive Feedback

While there are plenty of people who are quick to criticize, we are blessed to be part of a positive business community who provide support and encouragement. This week we have felt the love with messages, phone calls, emails, Facebook shares & likes and even beautiful flowers.

Here’s a few comments we’ve had recently from happy clients.

That home page just took my breath away.  Showed the girls and we love it.  Particularly when up against the old one…. Much cleaner/fresher.

Brilliant……thank you!  These are great……I’m really happy with what you’ve done. It’s always a pleasure to work with you.

- Karen Giacomucci

I approached Graphic Design Sense when I was looking at rebranding our company and updating and revamping our website.  I had some basic ideas about the direction I wanted to head in and was amazed that after a short meeting with Helen she was able to put together a complete package that captured my vision better than I could have ever imagined.

I have been blown away by her determination to make sure everything was just right and her readiness and willingness to work to unexpected requests and tight deadlines.  The service and the quality of the products she provides are excellent.

I couldn’t be more pleased with the work we have had done and enjoy the ongoing complements on our “new look”.

Customer Service Award

We were honoured to receive the Customer Service Award at the 2017 Kalgoorlie-Boulder Chamber of Commerce's Business and Employee awards recently. We'd like to thank the Chamber for this privilege, and say a big thank you to all of our loyal clients for your continued support. We strive for excellence in all aspects of our business and hope to continue providing the best service that we can for many years to come.

We would also like to congratulate all nominees and winners of the 2017 Business Awards, and were proud to see many of our clients taking out awards in other categories also.

Time for a website refresh?

You might be surprised to find that revamping your website is not as daunting or costly as expected. No matter how old, if your website was built by Design Sense, you don't need to start again from scratch.

Particularly, if you have a Content Management installed in your website, it is likely to be cheaper to upgrade the design and content of the site whilst keeping the existing framework in place.

If your website is more than two years old, it's probably time to think about making some changes. Ask yourself these questions:

  • Is your website mobile friendly?
  • Do you need a refreshed look?
  • Are the content or photos out of date?
  • What has changed in your business lately that is not reflected on the website?

A complete overhaul and refresh of your website can cost as little as $400. Design Sense are here to help you bring your website up to scratch. So before you think about moving on to the 'next best thing', contact us to see what we can do for you.
