Did you know that carousels on websites are 99% ineffective?

Research has shown that people don't interact with carousels or images sliders. They rarely look at them and they rarely click. In fact, some statistics show that only 1% of users interacted with them. You're wasting money if you've got carousels on your website.


Websites that are secure rank higher

Since 2014, Google has used https as a ranking signal. All things being equal, a website that is secure will rank higher than it's non-secure counterpart. If yours isn't secure, you are throwing away exposure on the web.


Are half of your clients annoyed with you?

Mobile traffic volume has already surpassed desktop traffic online. More than half of all traffic is from smartphones and tablets now.  If your website doesn't look good on mobile you risk frustrating and annoying more than 50% of your users and potential clients.

Case Studies

MANUFACTURING

 

General Marking Australia needed a face-lift and a 240 volt shock into the world of modern website design. I implemented an ecommerce solution that improved sales and generated new leads.

FINANCE

Star & Co's objective was to ensure that their strong reputation in delivering business solutions to high net worth clients was reflected in their website. The result was a new platform, imagery and message to reinforce their position in the marketplace.

ARTS

Alan's sculptures speak for themselves, so this project delivered an understated design that allowed visitors to view his sculptures without being distracted by navigation and wordy descriptions.


 

Services

I provide a complete suite of services for small to medium businesses including government departments and non-government organisations.

I design websites and online shops that are customised for your business. You receive research-based solutions that consider the recent trends and user-centred design. I'm trained in Agile project management methods so you know the most important products will be delivered first.  

 Squarespace Specialist in Sydney

Squarespace Specialist

Squarespace is one of the best website platforms for SME websites and boutique online stores. It's easy to manage and you don't need any technical support for hosting. Their customisation options allow me to build you a website that stands out from the crowd. And best of all, subscriptions are extremely cost-effective. 

 
 Usability and Accessibility Audits in Sydney by Pat Birgan - UX Certified and W3C WAI recognised Qualifications

Expert Reviews

Your website may have looked amazing when it was developed, but over time, with regular additions and modifications, it's become less effective and cumbersome. I see that a lot. I can audit your website against usability heuristics, international standards like WCAG 2.0, provide recommendations and get you back on track.

 Shopify Expert in Sydney

Shopify

Shopify has helped launch tens of thousands of business into the stratosphere of online shopping. I can build you a store to sell your products, and deliver a safe and secure solution that is easy for you to manage, run promotions and more..

I wanted something stylish and uncluttered with minimal amount of copy. Pat understood what I was looking for and was able to create it beautifully.  The whole process was smooth and stress free. Pat understands how to balance the wishes of the client with making the website as effective as possible from a commercial perspective. I would thoroughly recommend Pat.”

Pat brought my business into this millennium. He turned my old WordPress website which was confusing and hard to update into a slick new Shopify site, which is easy to manage. Pat's research into what my competitors were doing online was an extremely worthwhile exercise."

About me

I started my career in digital over 20 years ago. Starting out in sport, I went on to work for some of Australia's leading organisations both here and overseas, including Queensland Rail, AIS, Australian Sports Commission, and Service NSW. 

My point of difference is that in my previous career I built websites for large organisations, where I had access to exclusive research papers, and obtained internationally recognised qualifications in user experience and web accessibility. With this, I have acquired a strong understanding of human behaviour in relation to websites/digital and how to maximise their effectiveness.

Now I can bring this level of knowledge and expertise to smaller/medium-sized businesses, which would otherwise not have access to it. What may be appropriate for a large organisation, may not be suitable for a smaller one, so I have been able to tailor solutions for my client’s needs and their budget.

I bring a personalised service to my clients. You only ever deal with me. I have a team of technical experts on hand to help deliver exactly what you need. I have a strong track record building user-friendly and cost-effective solutions across a wide range of sectors, including finance, arts, manufacturing and tourism.
