“Capeview Apartments needed a new website desperately. We had no experience in developing a site from scratch and were worried about how we would be able to choose the right web designer for us. It’s like choosing a new doctor or lawyer – the work they do is specialised, you just have to do your research and then take a huge leap of faith! Richard was recommended to us by a marketing expert and we are thrilled with the results of our new site,” said Anne Pappalardo of Capeview Apartments.More Info
FNQ Podiatry & Orthotics
“Working with Julie and Richard was an absolute pleasure; the wealth of knowledge that they have when it comes to building a website is invaluable – we definitely felt like our website was in good hands. We are overwhelmed with the final product; they were able to create something out of nothing, it is professional and user friendly. Julie and Richard were very approachable and always available via phone or email to answer our several questions. We would highly recommend them.” – said Kyle Richardson, Podiatrist / Director, FNQ Podiatry & Orthotics.More Info

ABC Scuba Diving Port Douglas
“Having operated our business from a very basic ‘homemade’ website, we were looking to professionalise our web presence and expand our business into some unknown areas. After only one meeting, bombarding Julie and Richard with a vast array of vague ideas, possible concepts and – compared with Julie’s writing – a poorly written website, it was clear they were not only listening to us, but immediately grasped our new company outline. … We highly recommend Big Blue Creative, there is no better in town!” said Jay Wink, owner / operator of ABC Scuba Diving Port Douglas.More Info
“From our initial contact with Richard and Julie, we received nothing but first rate service. The initial proposal was delivered in a timely and professional manner, reflecting an understanding as to what we required and outlining how we could achieve it. The consultation and advice provided throughout the process was always very professional and timely and of the highest standard. The evidence of this is in the quality of the website we were delivered. We have a contemporary website that operates as well on an iPhone as it does on a desktop, it is well laid out and easily navigated, we could not be happier.” said Michael Faulkner, Group Accountant, HPS (QLD).More Info
Pre-Spec Pty Ltd
Richard and Julie were recommended to me as web people who made things work. It was great advice! They were brilliant to work with, keeping clear lines of communication throughout. Living in Adelaide I never actually met them, but I didn’t need too. They talked to me on the phone and email and got a clear understanding of my business and what I wanted to achieve with the new site. Julie wrote great new content and then Richard’s design just blew me away. ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT – LOVE IT!!! Their work has been fantastic. The whole process was so easy and the new site is just awesome, even better than I expected. Thanks to Richard and Julie for everything. I strongly recommend them!More Info
Peppermint Lane Photography
“I just wanted to send through a massive thanks for all of the hard work you put into the Peppermint Lane website. Stephanie and I are so very happy with it. We find ourselves logging back on to the page and looking at it, time and time again, with big smiles on our faces. You have interpreted the brief that we sent through better than we could have ever expected. You captured the brand perfectly, all of the little finer details we absolutely love and we are so pleased, so thank you. It has been an absolute pleasure to work with you both, we are so pleased we made the decision to go with Big Blue Creative.” – Jason and Stephie, Peppermint Lane Photography.More Info
Spirit of Cairns
“Always a pleasure to work with Richard and Julie, who produce reliable results, time and time again. They created a fantastic looking website for Spirit of Cairns and we could not be happier. They did the design and copy writing, creating a website which is not only informative, but also looks great and is responsive to mobiles, which is really important in our marketplace. The site was ready on time and completed on budget.” said Trina Baker, Sales Manager, Spirit of Cairns.More Info
“Richard and Julie are fantastic! When we first approached them about redesigning one website and building and branding another, we only had a vague idea of what we wanted. They spent time with me to narrow down the vision I had for the site and an overall branding strategy. Not only did they exceed what was expected of them, they also had our site ready on time and at an extremely competitive price. In the whole process nothing was too hard for these guys and they always validated my ideas and input. Julie’s ability write content and create an overall “feel” for our sites was amazing, she has a real gift with words. Richard’s laid back “can do” attitude and attention to detail of imagery and functionality makes Big Blue Creative the “go to” company for any business looking to upgrade or create a web presence. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending these guys.” said Roderic Rees, Owner, Foaming FuryMore Info

Big “thank you” to Richard and Julie! You guys were a pleasure to work with, easy to understand, you made our transaction simple and stress free, my new website looks fantastic! – Sue Schembri, Office Manager, 1300BINNIT Pty LtdMore Info
“After joining the Haz-Elec team recently, it was apparent that whilst the team and Directors had created an amazing company with an enviable offering of services, their brand and presentation did not adequately support the strength and capabilities of the organisation as it stands today. With Julie Johnston, we basically started with a strong logo and redeveloped the brand from there. It was very much a partnered process with Julie providing both sound guidance and a willingness to share our vision. We are extremely happy with all that has been achieved in our marketing makeover and feel we are now perfectly positioned to enter the next phase of this amazing journey.” said Bruce Knox, Engineering Manager at Haz-Elec.More Info
Google Mobile-Friendly Update What’s It All About
Google’s mobile-friendly update was activated in April 2015. The update meant that Google boosted the rankings of mobile-friendly pages on mobile search results. This ensures that their customers, completing searches on mobile phones and devices, are being sent to pages that provide relevant content and are mobile-friendly.
The update only affected search results and rankings for searches completed on mobile phones. It applies to individual pages, not entire websites. It was a global change, affecting searches completed from mobiles in all languages and locations.
