Web Design & Development

Making your web site work for you!

As experienced web designers and developers, we know that a well-designed website is vital to any successful business and marketing programme. We also reccommend the use of social media to consolidate a strong online presence.

We provide customised, well-designed websites with effective SEO (search engine optimisation).

Our custom designs provide easily accessible, concise, mobile responsive websites which are easy-to-use, and tie in with any existing branding.

We can help you with:

  • custom designed websites
  • e-Commerce & shopping websites
  • content management systems (CMS)
  • WordPress based websites
  • animated content
  • ongoing search engine optimisation (SEO)
  • e-newsletters and email campaigns
  • social media – Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter
  • development of custom applications
Website Care Plan

Just like any motor vehicle, your website will benefit from having a regular service and safety checks.

Our Website Care Plan

Due to the dynamic nature of internet technology and as websites face a greater number of online hacking attempts, more vigilance is required in maintaining website systems to ensure the best possible performance and security.

Our website care plan provides:

  • Monthly core updates for your content management system (WordPress).
  • Monthly updates for system plugins/extensions and theme files.
  • Monthly file and database backups created and stored on both your hosting server and on a remote cloud server.

We offer this service for an annual fee of $360 + GST.

Print & Advertisement Design

Marketing materials will always perform better for you if the design of different collateral is co-ordinated to contain consistent words, graphics and other imagery.

Our writers work closely with you to develop a clear and concise marketing message, and then our designers apply their experience and expertise to develop solutions that will fulfil your needs and exceed your expectations.

We handle most areas of print design for:

  • advertisements
  • stationery (business cards, letterhead, etc)
  • brochures & catalogues
  • display units & posters
  • publications (books, magazines)
  • annual reports
  • packaging and merchandising

Branding & Identity

We place high priority on developing creative and distinctive logos to suit client requirements, and our logo designs stand the test of time.

SEO & Web Marketing

At Highland Creative we understand Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) and how this needs to incorporate both on-page and off-page site optimisation techniques. Pay Per Click (PPC) advertising can also be a great way to boost site visitation in the short term.

We design and co-ordinate advertising for marketing campaigns across applications to project a consistent, strong and eye-catching message to make your advertisements jump out from the page.

As an integral part of web marketing, we embrace the platforms of social media for business networking and appreciate its role in helping to provide cost-effective campaigns and create a successful web presence.

We keep up with current trends and have the understanding and technical ability to help educate clients on the value of marketing across multiple platforms online.


We offer a complete copywriting and proofing service to assist in the marketing of your business and/or product.

Our experienced professional writers will work with you to quickly identify your unique selling points and develop crisp and clear copy and phrasing that will enhance any marketing genre, including advertisements, brochures, web sites, blogs, newsletters, e-mail campaigns.

Our web site words are designed to enhance Search Engine Optimisation and web ranking.

We also provide an editing service of your supplied text if required.
