A Website That Sells
There's a lot of pretty or dull-looking websites out there in Perth that fall short on generating leads and performing where it matters.
Your website is your best salesperson and promoter on the internet, ever-present twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. So why then would you settle for something that may present well but drops the ball every time a user visits your website or where it really counts?
At Thriving Web Design, we're focused not just on beautiful web design; we're just as focused on building websites that have a purpose and end result in mind. Website designs that perform.
100% Custom Website Design
While you can build websites using a pre-made template, we here at Thriving Web Design don't do that. Everything we make is 100% custom-made by our Perth web designer.
We opt to custom design websites because the design, the look and the function of the website need to suit your business's needs and that of your website visitors. Especially your visitors.
Once we have researched your business and your target market and understand what you and they need, we start by designing wireframes first to get the content layout right. From there, we create high-fidelity mock-ups (images made to look like the intended website design).
Throughout the design process, with your feedback and some testing, we make a few iterations of the website mock-up until we achieve the perfect design for your audience. From there, we build the actual website using the mock-ups as a guide. So no templates or pre-made stuff. The website fits your audience and business requirements like a glove, not the other way around.
Built In Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)
Yes, running some Google ads can drive business, but you need to think about SEO too. Website designers always need to think about SEO, and we're no exception. When planning and building your website, we're also incorporating what are considered good SEO practices into the website.
These include ensuring the website's technical SEO aspect (meaning the stuff behind the scenes) is up to scratch. We also look at the on-page SEO approach to the design; these are content-related things.
Without giving SEO a second thought before the website is built, your website won't rank well, so this is why we consider this stuff essential to get right.
User-Friendly Web Design
Making sure the website we design for you is user-friendly is very important. Why? Because if the website isn't easy to use, website visitors leave. So we put a lot of focus into ensuring the websites are user-friendly.
The website easy to read and use
The website visitor should find the website incredibly easy to use. It should fulfil their needs perfectly (e.g. they can find the information they are after quickly and easily).
A mobile responsive website
The website should also be mobile-responsive, which fits mobile and tablet devices perfectly, not just desktop computers and laptops.
The website is accessible
The website should be accessible to all users. Font size and colour should make it easy for readers whose eyesight might not be as good. Screen readers for the blind can scan the website and pick up text, titles and alternative image descriptions.
Website visitors can quickly scan topics and headings
Users should be able to quickly scan or skim web pages and easily see topic headings to find what they're looking for. There's nothing worse than having to trawl through wall-to-wall text without being able to spot headings and subheadings.
Compatible with all major web browsers
When we build a client a website, we test it on all major web browsers to ensure it looks consistently the same across all of them and that everything is working and functioning as expected.
Good navigation and well-thought-out architecture
We ensure that all web pages' overall architecture and the navigation that binds them work well. The more intuitive it is for the user, and the less they have to second-guess where everything should be on the website, the better.
Fast Loading Websites
As a web design company in Perth, we know that a website must load fast. Seconds count, and if it takes too long to load, the website visitor will leave the website.
Minifying website code
We minify code as one way to increase page loading speed of website pages. Minifying is like compressing website code, so it takes up very little file space, improving page loading speed.
Compress image file sizes
We also compress the file size of images. This reduces the total file size of the image while still retaining image quality. By doing this, web browsers have much less data to download, which means images appear on the page quicker.
Lazy loading images for improved speed
We can lazy load images too, which gives us control over the order in which images load for better performance.
Using website caching
Website caching allows us to reduce the number of times a user's web browser has to reload everything from the page (which can also chew up page speed). We usually try to employ all these methods to give a website page loading speeds we can provide them.
Your Website Design Company In Perth
We're a Perth web design agency. The work we do building websites for clients is done in Perth. We don't send the work overseas to be completed by someone who doesn't understand your business and isn't a local.
That means you can rest assured that we're not going to disappear on you halfway through the project, and we're always reachable during business hours in your time zone.
We take great pride in being a local Perth web development company, and we're immensely proud to have the opportunity to help local business owners, big and small, here in Perth.
We Use WordPress For Most Website Design Work
Thriving Web Design uses WordPress for most of our website design work. This is because WordPress is extremely flexible, highly customisable, and a popular content management system.
Content management systems allow you to log into a private administration area of your website where you can add, edit, update and delete content yourself. It can save you money from going back to a web designer for changes and puts you in control of your content.
Many other popular platforms tend you lock you into their platform, so you have no choice but to host with them, but with WordPress, you can choose any website hosting company that supports WordPress.

Our Web Design Process
Step 1 - Discovery
This is where we set up an initial meeting, and get to know your business, and understand who your target market is. From there, we can establish what your website's ultimate end goal is and then formulate a plan to design and built a website that gets you to that end goal.
Step 2 - Build the website
Once we have that end goal in mind, our web designer then creates a mockup to show you precisely what the website will look like. Our expert web developer will then build the website based on that design.
Step 3 - Launch the website
After the website has been built, we do a thorough quality audit to make sure the website is ready to launch, checking everything is perfectly set as it should be. Once that audit is complete and we're confident your website is ready to launch, we load your website onto your web hosting platform for the whole world to see.
Step 4 - Thrive
The story doesn't end once the website is launched; we're there to provide you a lending hand during that handover phase to make sure everything is running fine. While the websites we build are super easy to use, we also provide you with some quality training so you can feel 100% confident in using your brand-new website. Need ongoing support for SEO and Google ads? We can help you with this too.

Glen did an awesome job creating our website. Nothing was ever too hard, any requests were completed so promptly. He also took the time to explain any queries I had in great detail to help us understand what would be best for our business. Highly recommend.

I found Glen on LinkedIn as I wanted to use someone local for my new website. I found him incredibly knowledgeable and able to explain things to me in an easy to understand way. My website was completed in the required time and he did a lot of hand holding when we first went live. I've had a great response to my website and would most definitely recommend Thriving Web Design to anyone needing a new website or even to update their old, tired one.
