We Care About Your Content
Your website has one goal: to put your content in front of your visitors. We achieve that using three key design principles: make it fast, make it clean and make it visible. You will see these principles in action throughout our own site.
Make It Fast
You can have the most beautiful website in the world, but if it doesn’t load quickly, you will lose visitors. CivicNet-designed websites will load in seconds, whether your visitors are on high speed broadband in the office, or on the go with their mobile phone.
Make It Clean
Your website is your virtual home. You want visitors to feel welcome, safe and happy, and that means no mess and no clutter.
CivicNet specialises in the art of making your text easy on the eye.
Our carefully chosen fonts are supported by simple backgrounds and elegant features.
We are honest. We’ll take your vision for your virtual home and make sure we present it in the best possible way.
Make It Visible
The web is a big place, and there is a lot of competition. Your website needs to stand out.
CivicNet-designed websites adhere to strict search engine optimisation (SEO) standards to make them “Google friendly”.
The best part is, the more visitors engage with your site, the more favourably Google will treat it - and since you have a fast, clean, engaging site, this will happen sooner rather than later.
The words on your site need to captivate your visitors. They need to explain what your business is all about quickly and simply, and encourage visitors to keep exploring.

A well designed business card puts your details front and centre when you meet new clients. If you have the same designer working on both your site and your card you'll have a more consistant experience and so will your customers.
