Web design and development

to attract more customers and build your brand.

It is no secret that running a business in the 21st century without quality website design and development will result in you missing out on hundreds, if not thousands of potential leads a year. It is practically business suicide and you want to avoid it at all costs. A high quality, result driven web design project will result in your business being in front of your target market and generating leads and enquiries regularly. 

Here at Ctrl Alt Design, our web design services are not only geared to ensure our clients websites perform and function properly, but to make sure that their branding is consistent and they have a website that they can be proud of. Web design and development not only includes the building of the website, but the overall layout, experience and journey that the visitor will take when landing on the website.

Web design that has been thought out properly will bring your business more leads and more chances to get in front of your target market. 

Why choose web design with us?

Our business is built of relationships. Being a small web design agency, you can trust that your project is going to get the right amount of attention it requires in order to be great. Not only are you going to receive a website that has been custom built to represent your brand, but you are going to join a family of creatives that are passionate and truly care about your business and its success. 

Our team is small and we limit the amount of projects we have on at any given time to ensure your project yields the best possible outcome. Whilst we do offer entry level packages that are template based, you can rest assured knowing that those templates are 100% hand crafted by the Ctrl Alt Design team and have been designed and developed to meet the ongoing trends and standard practices in both website design and SEO (Search Engine Optimisation).

Before taking on a client, we like to conduct an in depth phone or zoom meeting to ensure we are the right fit for them. This is a crucial stage within our web development process and one that is often overlooked by a lot of agencies. We’re not here to sell you a website and then make your life difficult. We have invested in processes, software and systems that make the web design process a simple and organised experience.

Web Design Industries

We have been building websites as an agency since 2017 and have had the pleasure of working with some amazing clients across many different industries. Some industries we work within are below:

Our 6 Step Web Design Process

With a great process comes great results. We have a very strict web design process that every web development project follows to ensure not only you get the best possible results but to cross check our build and make sure nothing has been missed. 

Websites can sometimes be very complex and we find, following our trialed and proven process, ensures every client leaves with a smile on their face and a finished product that enables their business to grow and succeed online.

In the design brief, we will gain as much information as possible about the business, its competitors, the desired look and feel of the website and the overall targeted outcome of the project.

Wireframing will involve a design of the site including layout, buttons, pages, and navigational structure which will be reviewed and approved prior to build commencing. Depending on the package you have requested, this may involve a mock-up of only one page or all pages on your site.

The approved wireframe / design will then be built out on a password protected domain or staging environment. The development process will include building all pages, header and footer structures, contact forms and call to action functions.

Our team will carry out extensive testing to ensure the website works and performs as it should prior to being sent to you for final review. Testing will include scalability between screen sizes and on mobile devices, contact form function, call to action functions and general functionality of the website.

Once the internal testing has been carried out and our team have signed off on the functionality of the site, you will receive a link to view the site where it is encouraged to check the site thoroughly across both desktop and mobile devices. If any slight changes are required, they will be actioned immediately. (note: no design changes are to be made here, simply layout changes or functionality changes as the design will have been signed off previously).

Once the website has been finalised and all final tweaks made, the website files will be migrated to a live domain or the password protection removed. From here, we will allow search engine indexing and carry out SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) related tasks such as creating a google search console, creating a google analytics account, uploading sitemaps and completing on page SEO meta data requirements.

Our smallest packages start at $1200 + GST and are tailored to businesses requiring the bare minimum to become established online.
Please contact us at hello@ctrlaltdesign.com.au to discuss your project or alternatively, book a free consult here.

The size of your project will determine how quickly our team will be able to design, develop and test the site prior to launching. 

Generally most websites are completed in 3-5 weeks however this may be increased depending on the scope of the project.

Definitely Not! In fact, most of our clients are not located in Newcastle, Australia. 

We work with clients across the globe and can communicate effectively via email, scheduled calls, zoom meetings and slack groups.

Absolutely!

All of our projects and pricing structures include a training session upon handover / launch to ensure you are familiar with the dashboard and back end of your site. Our websites are extremely user friendly and use the most common platforms within the industry.

All clients will have basic website maintenance covered by their hosting and maintenance plan however, we do have multiple plans on offer which include various amounts of ongoing maintenance.


You can view all hosting and maintenance plans here.

Yes and Yes 🙂

No, the build of your website does not include monthly SEO (Search Engine Optimisation).

We take every action possible to build your new website to be seen by Google meaning during your website build, we will ensure all items added to the website including text, photos and videos can be seen and indexed by Google however this does not, this does not mean that you will rank #1 for certain keywords.
