Ready to kickstart your design project?
01 - Get to know each other
We'll chat over the phone, a zoom call or in person to run through your project and ideas, nut out what you need and see how best we can help. If we zing, we'll send you an overview of everything we discussed along with our price guide.
02 - Gather all the things
For websites, this means your all important content. If you need help with written content, we'll connect you with one of our amazing copywriter friends. For images, you might already have your own or we can help you source high quality stock images depending on what suits you and your project best. For branding, we may also ask you for a Pinterest mood-board to get an idea of your overall brand vision.
03 - Get designing
For websites, once your content and images are sorted, we'll send through some example themes to dress up your content in style. We work with high quality pre-made themes and customise them to suit your branding and website goals. For branding, we'll start putting together your first round of concepts to kick off your project.
04 - Get building
For websites, once you've chosen a theme, we'll weave it all together in the build. We'll give you access to the design so you can watch it all come together in the background, and ask for your input along the way. You'll have the chance to review the site and make any little tweaks. Then once it's ready, we go live and introduce your beautiful new site to the world. For branding, we'll take on board your feedback to finalise your logo and pop together your branding style guide.

Ready to kickstart your design project?
100% recommend Sarah and Laura Design. I was in need of new designs for my business cards and not only did they look amazing, but they were done quickly. Communication was fantastic. They were so great to work with I ended up getting several things designed with them. Highly recommend.
Leanna J Consulting
I recently had the great pleasure of working with Sarah & Laura Design for my new logo and business card design. Right from our first meeting, they understood my concept and offered unique ideas to compliment what I had in mind. Sarah & Laura Design far exceeded my expectations and I would recommend their services to anyone looking for a professional service and great value. Thank you so much!
Adelaide Boat Sales
Sarah and Laura were so good to work with and with the limited information and ideas I supplied they were able to read between the lines and give me exactly what I wanted. It looks great I have had awesome feedback from clients. I would recommend these girls to anyone wanting to give their business a face lift or for those starting up a new business.
The Little Roundabout
Sarah & Laura listened to my vision and guided me in the right direction. They are supportive, patient and enthusiastic through the website design and creating process. Their customer service is exceptional, promptly replying to all my queries and their knowledge is a benchmark for others in the industry. Highly recommended.
How long does it take to build a website?
If your content is all ready to go, we usually allow 4-6 weeks for new website builds.
What website builders do you use?
We specialise in WordPress and Shopify website builders. If you’re unsure what builder would be best for your business, check out this helpful post about the main differences between WordPress and Shopify here.
Will I be able to edit my website myself?
Yes! We believe in empowering you to be in control of your own website. So if you need to add a blog post, update your contact info or add new images, you can. If you’re unsure how, we’ll point you in the right direction. And of course, if you prefer not to touch it at all, we’re more than happy to handle those tweaks and changes as and when you need.
Do you write the content for my website?
We focus on the design and leave the content to awesome copywriters. Depending on your business niche, we can put you in touch with the right person to make sure your brand message is crafted to perfection.
Do you have payment plans for small businesses?
Most definitely! To help with cash flow for small business, our website payments are broken up over a 6 week period, with a 50% deposit followed by 2x fortnightly instalments of 25%.
What's the difference between a website designer and a website developer?
Website designers focus on the design and layout of your site and content utilising pre-built themes and plugins/apps to minimise build time and custom coding.
Website developers focus on coding complex systems or integrations. This service is usually required by larger scale organisations.
Why do you use pre-built themes and plugins/apps?
We are website designers, which means we work with existing premium themes and plugins to customise your website. This keeps costs down as there isn’t as much custom coding required.
We also believe using themes helps keep your website dashboard super user friendly for you to be able to update your content as well as us.
As website designers, we’re all about finding the perfect combination of aesthetics and functionality for your business.
