Our Web Services
The Creative Collective has developed hundreds of websites on a variety of platforms and have even devised innovative systems to cut out the common frustrations experienced both client and agency side around any given website development.

These include our ever popular website in a day, where working in person (where geography permits) or on Skype or other online mechanism, alongside a project manager, lead web developer and support web developer, we can create you a website in just ONE DAY.

Web design & development process
We generally approach our website design & developments in a few key phases:
  1. Website brief - We meet with the decision makers of your business to discuss the requirements for your website in more detail i.e. vision, strategies, goals and objectives; target market; required look and feel; calls to action, review sites you like and rough out a navigation/site map. There is no need to bring anything to this session. We will extract all the information we require from you, and provide you with a handy checklist of items to supply us with via email after the session.
  2. The Design -We will either send you a list of themes to choose from prior to the build day, or if we are preparing a custom design, we will supply you with some design concepts to approve.
  3. The Build - We will schedule a day to work on the website when key decision makers are available to provide feedback online as we build your website real time. This saves on lots of back and forth! It’s like watching an experienced chef whip up a gourmet meal in the kitchen while you salivate. The process of building a website will include styling the theme to suit your branding, creating the menu structure as agreed on in your site map during the brief, uploading your supplied content, images and videos, and adding in any other functionality agreed on in the brief i.e. contact forms, ecommerce functionality, integration with Mailchimp or other 3rd party systems etc.
  4. Optimising The Site - After the day of the build we will complete a variety of items as outlined on your estimate including ensuring Google Analytics & Google Webmaster Tools is correctly set up on your site, submitting the site map to Google so it indexes quickly and will be updated as you make updates to the site, and conducting some keyword research and optimising the website pages.
  5. Go Live - Immediately prior to going live we will make sure the site is good to go with full testing and quality checks on different browsers to ensure compliance and functionality. We will also make the site live on our hosting server, or on your preferred host.
  6. Training & Handover - We will arrange a one-on-one training and handover session to show you the ropes of your new website! Some people prefer to do this before the site goes live, others prefer it after. The choice is up to you!

How long does it take to build a website?
Whilst we can provide rough guidelines on how long a site will take to build based on previous experience, the client will generally dictate the speed at which a website is built, depending on how long they take to provide approvals for different stages of the development, and also how long the content takes to collate and supply (which the client generally sources and writes, unless we are contracted otherwise).The duration of any given website design and development project will also dependent on the size of the project i.e. it's level of customisation and complexity, and also our current production schedule. But be assured that if you have a deadline to make, we can make it happen!

Our Happy Website Clients
"I'd like to say thank you again for the great work your team did in creating our new website.TCC came to the rescue when we needed our old website updated urgently after a business name change & to include eCommerce. Not only did they attend to the briefing, but they gave the whole website a complete fresh overhaul. We love it! The team were professional, understanding of our needs & worked fast. And it was all done in ONE DAY. Thank you TCC!"

Nikki Arnold, Sales & Administration Manager, 1-DA Shapes
"I absolutely love my new logo and the website for my new business! Thanks everyone from the Creative Collective team who worked on it - you all rock! 9am no website, 5pm website...Boom!"

Mummy Tea
"Thank you so much to you both for your unending patience and support.
I am extremely happy with it. Maybe one day I’ll get to meet you in person! This was a first for me working with Skype and emails but it all worked very well. I must say I would have rather done it face to face but that’s the old me and how I’ve done things for so long. Now I think I could manage working with this media again. Thank you again for an inspiring and exciting process. You both bring a lot of strengths to your work such as planned organisation, clear and empathic communication and of course you showed patient determination to help me through the experience."

Bobbi Cruice, Swing High
"Could not recommend this amazing company enough. I have had all of my branding + my website done by the team at Creative Collective and am so happy and impressed by the attention to detail, professionalism, patience (I am extremely fussy) and care shown by each and every staff member I dealt with. 1 year on I am still constantly receiving compliments from my clients on my beautiful logo and website. Thank you, thank you, thank you to the team at Creative Collective I am so happy with everything you have done for me and my business. Special shout out to Bronte who continues to go above and beyond!"

Erin Stuart
"Caravan & RV World assigned The Creative Collective of Newcastle to design and manage our e-commerce website that sells spare parts and accessories to caravan and motorhome owners around Australia. Aside from the excellent website they have produced they have also designed a Google Adword and SEO campaign to go with it. This campaign has worked wonders for our business. Our website traffic has increased, sales have increased and we are seeing increasing numbers of repeat customers.
Katrina Lees and Alastair Loxton have always answered my questions promptly and have reported statistics and results on time without fail. Thankyou to the team at The Creative Collective Newcastle for doing an excellent job in getting my business flying online and helping us to become Australia’s fastest growing online caravan and motorhome spare parts and accessories business. "

Aaron O'Brien, Director, Caravan and RV World
"Yvette and her team at the Creative Collective are truly professional and fantastic to work with. The support and advice they have provided to me through creating a new webpage for my business has been exceptional.A friendly group, they happily answered all my questions and explained everything clearly. As a result of the new webpage built by them, they have renewed my drive to increase traffic to my business. I highly recommend the Creative Collective to any individual or company for technological support and advice. Thank you Yvette and team."

Kerrie Hayes, Celebrations of Life
"I am so thrilled with what this company can do in a day. It has been such a breeze working with them and they have made everything really easy and simple. I have unsuccessfully tried previously to get my websites up and running and I finally have a stunning website and branding. Couldn't recommend you guys enough! 10/10!"

Beck McKay
"Our new website is everything we imagined and more...!!! You guys are so awesome to work with....nothing is too much trouble...!! Being in business for many years, I know this is becoming increasingly rarer. It's such a breath of fresh air dealing with the team at The
Creative Collective...!!! The entire time I worked with TCC on creating our new site we were
travelling the globe for work and yet it was never an issue...Glenn and the team were always happy to work around me and my crazy schedule.
The level of professionalism and timely delivery on projects was second to none and not only that, they understood exactly what I wanted and captured the essence of our brand exactly, not an easy task in our extremely image conscious market.
Don't worry, I'll be spreading the word about you guys...!!"

Michelle Blauw & Stuart D'Arcy, D'Arcy Surfboards

"Our website has over 1700 products and is one of the largest online card shops in Australia.

Kristian Lund, Marketing & Communications Consultant, Sports Super Centre
"On day one of going live with my website I booked a shopping party - one of the services I offer...Yeah!! The potential of my new website is unreal and so exciting. I could not have got it done without the support from the Creative Collective team. Best of all I know I still have help when ever I need it. I can see exciting possibilities for my business that I would never have explored before so thanks heaps Creative Collective."

Mandy Hargreaves, Director, Shopping by Appointment
"Yvette and Kat are the most energetic, vibrant and trend-setting team I have ever encountered. Always cheerful, smiling, superbly intelligent and on-the-ball they make the graphic design process a wonderful and happy adventure of discovery. What's more I feel "safe" in their capable hands as beyond their obvious talents they work to the highest standards of ethics and integrity which can be a rare commodity in today's commercial world. I retained the Creative Collective on the basis of my initial impression of Yvette herself and as such my expectations were set "very high" - I was not disappointed - my expectations were met "admirably".by both Yvette and Katrina. What more can I say - they are the best! "

Marie Walton, ArtinU
"Every question was explained clearly in a manner that anyone tech illiterate could understand. Creative Collection also made noteable suggestions for improvements throughout every step. We were very happy with the customer service offered and with our new very professional looking web site!"

Michelle Denton, Denton Engineering
"I have worked with Yvette as the practice manager of two busy medical practices over a period of three years. Yvette has been extremely respectful and understanding of the unique and highly regulated industry we operate within and has opened our eyes to many innovative strategies available to businesses, including ours. As crazy as at it sounds, it is still not even uncommon for medical practices to even have a website and many do not see the need to market, or only stick to very traditional marketing strategies such as advertising and flyer drops.

Yvette has assisted our practice to become a real pioneer in our industry by introducing various functionalities which have successfully assisted us to grow our patient list, and to service our existing patient list more effectively.

We now have the ability for new patients to register at our practice online and our existing patients to book appointments online a quick, discreet and easy way for our patients to communicate with us. She has also assisted to develop our brand including expansions within the company, to win business awards by encouraging us to enter relevant awards and assisting us in the application process, developing hugely successful community initiatives and fundraising drives and secure a significant of media coverage and much more! We are so confident in Yvette's abilities we have recommended her to many of our colleagues."

Nicky Jardine, Practice Manager, Medicine on Second
"I have been very impressed with the competence, knowledge, and expertise of The Creative Collective team. The website is already performing at a significantly higher level than the old one, particularly in terms of visitors to the site. It also looks and feels exactly as I had hoped in terms of presenting my business to the on-line world."

Robin Cullen, The Planning Academy
"Would like to thank you again for our website everyone who has seen it have been saying how good it looks. Kind Regards, Alice."

Studio Phoenix
"Thank you for all your help with studylane! I have had the pleasure of working with Yvette & the team at The Creative Collective since 2009 with my startup studylane.
I really appreciate the fact Yvette and many of her team are entrepreneurs themselves and understand the challenges that startups face.
I've worked with Yvette on her team on a wide range of projects including the design and print of postcards for a trade expo I was featuring at, and when I took on board some investors, mobilising a new website for a particular campaign, some Google AdWords and Facebook advertising campaigns to drive good numbers of traffic to the site. I actually have a lot of expertise in these areas myself so selecting a company that I know I can trust to do as good a job as I could myself, or better, is really hard to find. But with The Creative Collective I feel really confident in their abilities.
They're also great communicators and can move fast when speed is required. Not many companies can turn around projects as fast as they can, if required. They're my go to people for all my marketing requirements and I've also recommended quite a few people to them."

Bipul Kafley
"Check out our awesome new website! We love it! Designed by the fabulous Creative Collective. It's everything we wanted and more and we know it is going to boost our business."

Traci Castle, Studio Republic
