Why Light Media

Flexibility, cost effectiveness and transparency.

We are here to give you the best customer service and deliver the best solution. Website owners can install pre-designed themes. What’s the problem with this solution? The theme can become difficult to customise and has limited functionalities.

The solution for this common problem is to customise your theme from scratch, incorporating all required functions and then integrating it to the chosen CMS platform (eg. WordPress). Custom web design gives you the freedom to choose your own look and feel of your website. It enables you to leverage your own ideas making it into reality.

The web design and development industry is a competitive one, with most operators being a ‘one man band’. Considering the many technologies involved in customising a website it is difficult (if not impossible) for one person to cover all the required skills. That is the main issue with ‘one man band’ web developers. That is also where Light Media differentiates itself. We have a neat team with a comprehensive skills set covering data base architects, graphic designs, back end developers and system administrator. Hence, we specialise in all areas required to built a professional level website.

We at Light Media:

  • use best Web design practices.
  • apply WACG 2.0 when required.
  • plan the database relationship and structure to receive the appropriate load.
  • plan long term, so your website can be robust, stable and allow your business to grow around it.
  • understand your requirements in depth and consult on the best platform to achieve your goals

That is easy said then done. It boils down to the fact that as a business owner you still need to have the knowledge and skill to identify a quality web design or service provider.

To help you with this decision, check out some of the quality characteristics that you can look for a better website design company.

Characteristics of a Quality Web Design Business

    • Check the companies’ portfolio. Check that the work done looks good. Check that the clients are well-known brands in their own segment. Check the user experience, if it pleases you it is most likely pleasing the client too. And don’t forget to ask about the platform used.
    • Strong Online Presence. A company with a strong online presence is one of the best indicators that you’re not dealing with a fly by night business. Presence can be through active and well-managed social media accounts, complete profiles on directory and business listings, and active participant in community websites such as forums, and questions and answers sites. Don’t forget to check the Google reviews too.
    • Good communication skills. There should be no language barrier in communication. The company’s response time should be mostly immediate. Reaching-out to clients regularly can be a plus. Staff and employees can express their ideas in a clear and polite way. And, choose someone friendly !
    • Follows Web standards and Principles. The service provider should follow web standards and best practices in web design. These standards aim to develop a usable and user friendly web solution which enables your website to become widely accepted by most online browsers and mobile devices.
    • Observes Semantic Web Standards. Web design is not just about user experience and usability. A website should also be understood by search engines. Implementation of Semantic Web markup will let search engines display your website data appropriately on search results.

These enumerations are just few of the many characteristics you can look for in a quality digital agency. With these characteristics in mind, it’s time to narrow down your selection.

I am very grateful to Cristiano and his team at light media. As a medical practitioner starting a new practice I did not know anything about branding, logos, website and SEO. I was referred to Cristiano by a common friend and was initially somewhat apprehensive thinking that the South Yarra location would mean premium prices. He was definitely reasonably priced but every aspect of the service was top notch. The whole process was transparent from the outset and I knew what I was getting. Nothing was a hassle and they worked around my busy schedule. They made sure that the website project went according to the timeline. At times they held me accountable for my part which was necessary. They have a great team and can provide a one stop shop. I did my logo, stationary, ongoing paper promotional material, website, website hosting and recently SEO. I have referred multiple colleagues to him and have gratitude for making one aspect of my practice so seamless.

The Wyndham History website was designed and implemented by Light Media, on the library CMS called Omeka. The design has met – and exceeded - our brief and expectation. We have been continuously using Light Media for ongoing development. The team is friendly, ready to assist and punctual on deadlines. We have been thrilled with the level of design and development expertise that Light Media have demonstrated on a key web project for our organisation. We gave Light Media the brief to fully develop (including look-and-feel, functional changes and bug fixing) a local history website built on the Omeka Content Management System. The team at Light Media clearly relished the prospect of working with a new platform and showed a great understanding of our needs and those of our end users. They nailed the design of the website theme in the first round of wireframes, and continually impressed us with their aesthetic decisions and UX suggestions during the look-and-feel development. We were also very pleased with their willingness and skill in bug fixing several modules of the CMS, thereby allowing us to deliver an excellent resource to the community on our own timeline. We couldn’t be happier with the professionalism, support and customer centred approach of the Light Media team – thanks again! -Tom Edwards. Coordinator, Library Systems Technology

I had Light Media do a 3D rendering image of a bathroom scene showcasing an upcoming product of ours. The result was beyond my expectations, seriously! I had an initial image/direction in mind and they used the idea and made it far better than I could of come up with. The ease of process that Jeff and the team provided was exactly what I needed as this was the first time I have had 3D rendering done. I have had endless comments on how good the render looks, both in the architecture and how real it is. My favourite of which was "this looks like it's come straight out of Vogue Living" I'm about to have a number more 3D rendered bathroom scenes by Light Media made for our website and new marketing material.
