Highly Recommend Damien from Propeller to design a website for you. Damien explained everything in detail, answered all my questions, was patient with me when trying to relay information to my manager, it was easy for me to explain what we were looking for and the end result has exceeded my expections. 

Our customers comment on how easy our website is to navigate now and I have found we get a lot more function enquiries with how clear our information and layout is now. Damien has made it easy for me to navigate, update and upload any extra events or information needed. This has made a big difference to the amount of time I spend on the website, which is not much at all. The website shows our venue exactly the way it sits and thats exactly how I wanted it to be for the customers. 

Thank you so much again for designing our new website and for recommending our new booking system as well!

It was great to realise our concept of a deaf-friendly website which is highly visual and prominently features Auslan (Australian Sign Language). Since launching the website, feedback from our users has been overwhelmingly positive and engagement with our website has significantly improved.

I first started working with Propeller in 2009. They created the face of Boat Style with an ecommerce website and branding. Our clients come from every corner of the globe to source our products and the website is our calling card. In the years since, they've updated the site and created marketing materials to keep pace with technology and the growth of our small, luxury driven design company. Damien & Renee's ability to work as a seamless team and accurately interpret our vision is highly commendable.

The Propeller team was great to work with once again and interpreted our needs perfectly. They were willing to help in every way, developing a professional and modern website which showcases our company well. Their ability to develop creative solutions to the functionality and user experience of our site made for a fantastic end result. I continue to be impressed all around with their skills, customer service and attention to detail every step of the way.

I have had the great pleasure of working with Propeller’s creative director Renee Buckley for the past five years. Renee is an exceptional graphic designer with diverse experience across a wide variety of projects and industries.

From large annual reports and magazines, through to product brochures, website design and digital campaigns, Renee consistently delivers, everytime. She always goes the extra mile to meet tight production deadlines, and works as an integral member of our team in delivering creative design solutions to support national and international marketing and communication programs.

Renee is a talented, dedicated professional and valued business partner. I am delighted to recommend Renee for her contemporary approach to design, warm and engaging communication style and the high level of client service she consistently delivers.

I have to say that the website that Damien and Renee have put together for our business is fantastic and we could not be happier with the end result.

We had previously been bitten to the tune of many thousands of dollars by web designers who promised a lot and delivered nothing except a bill. We even did some courses on web design so we would know if we were being led up the garden path and realised that we were being duped.

Damien’s attention to detail and technical ability is from our perspective first class he has delivered everything he promised. Well almost everything, the only things he couldn’t deliver on were OTT requests for features that were well nigh impossible – funny that!

Renee’s design fitted the brief nicely, and has been commented upon by several of our site road testers as fitting our company image perfectly.

Now all that remains is to generate a return on the investment, and hopefully the site will prove to be a good marketing tool.

I can recommend Propeller without hesitation….

Brown Brothers Engineers Australia is extremely happy with our new website. Propeller have done an excellent job right from the beginning with initial brief consultation and discussing which platforms would possibly suit our requirements; to Renee’s design concepts captured my requirements and presented them in a fresh, new way. And Damiens expertise really made this site possible. He has allowed our site to be feature rich but also extremely simple for me to update in the CMS, Expression Engine. I have found Expression Engine very easy to use, and Damien has been able to customise it making things very intuitive when loading content. We have multiple types of content on each article from text, images, videos, pdfs and weblink, all very straightforward to load. Thank you Propeller for a great site.

We have worked with the guys at Propeller for many years now they are always more than happy to help us with any queries or website maintenance we may require. When we decided that we needed to fill the demand for the ever increasing use of mobile devices & tablets in making our website more mobile friendly we had no idea of the work involved. Though never saying no to a challenge Damien at Propeller was eager to give it a go. We gave him direction on the design we were wanting as well as wanting the website to match our current colour scheme. As Damien showed us 'sneak peeks'€™ of the new mobile friendly version we were getting keen to have it up & running. The end result is a fantastic mobile friendly version of our website which has increased traffic flow to our site, duration of time spent on our website as well as pages viewed. We are so impressed with the results we are getting!

Working with Propeller on Bisley’s website project has been a pleasure throughout. From day 1 Damien and his team were at pains to understand precisely what we wanted to achieve. They successfully translated our brief into a website which is fresh, inviting, and easily navigable. In short: a great ambassador for the Bisley brand. Propeller’s technical expertise is first rate, ensuring the “back room” editing functions and integrated google analytics are logical and user friendly too.

All in all it’s been a great journey with the Propeller team.

It is my pleasure to share my experience as a client of yours in regards to my website journey with Propeller.

I believe that in todays world of consumerism and marketing that the website representing your business is the single most important marketing tool second only to great customer service and great products.

I chose Propeller for a few reasons. I noticed lots of other well established businesses using “Propeller” in my local area which to me represented others faith in their product. I developed a great rapport with Renee and Damien from our first meeting.

Their location was easy enough for me to access and I liked their work that I’d seen on other websites.

On completion of the website my expectations were exceeded. I love what they have done for me and my business but besides that I now have a real understanding of the correct way to build a website. I now know why I come across so many websites on the net that leave me frustrated and clicking off their sites quickly.

You really do get what you pay for. I could have chosen a cheaper option and I know I would have been disappointed. Not only did they build an awesome site for me but they educated me along the way. Thanks for taking great care explaining the process and always being available to answer my questions and supporting me through techno difficulties.

Renee and Damien have a product that I would not hesitate recommending to others. People interested in building a website need to know there is a vast difference between service providers.

I know that I have made a great decision and my website proves it.

I just can’t say it in 25 words or less. I am stoked in the service you have provided.

Thanks heaps

I worked with Damien & Renee from Propeller Global to build and launch the Boat Style site from scratch. I had very specific ideas about the site’s appearance and how it would operate. The simplest looking sites are often the most complex behind the scenes, and the Propeller team delivered in all respects. Customers and industry leaders have commented that the site is easy to find, beautiful in appearance and simple to navigate.

I also have the ability to keep my ongoing web management costs to a minimum by managing my own backroom using the Shopify platform. All communication with Propeller was done online or by telephone and to date I have not met the Propeller team in person, that says so much about their ability to communicate and build trust & rapport with their clients, without the need to meet face to face.

Boat Style is Australia’s first online showroom and shopping cart for luxury marine furnishings and has achieved considerable success, since its launch in May 2010. This in no small part because of the fine work of Propeller.

I just want to pass on to you some of the feedback we are getting from our website. There have been many general comments from members of the community about how great the website is.

An IT friend of one of the committee members commented that this website is one of the best he has seen and spoke very highly of its elements.

My hubby did some research on about 25 other events (comparing gate prices) and came back to me saying that out of all of the sites he visited€: RedFest was by far the best. It has been a winner for us this year. Thanks so much.

Pro Plaster Products have worked with Propeller for over 3 years starting with their fantastic graphic design services. Due to the great service, and attention to details given by Propeller, we recently engaged them for web design services and email marketing services also.

Propeller created an award winning, easy to use website for us that does what we want and our customers love. From the beginning they listened to what we wanted and they came back with a range of options for us to choose from. Propeller provided us with prompt and reliable service through the entire process and was patient even when we changed our minds. Their knowledge and passion for their jobs is evident in their work and their after sales service is excellent. Damien and Renee are easy to work with and made a complex sometimes overwhelming project, easy to manage and fun to complete.

Damien definitely knows his stuff and saves my business money through his expertise in this area.

Propeller won the 2008 McFarlane Prize for Excellence in Australian Web Design. As the organizer of the awards, I’ve seen the quality of Propeller’s work over several years, and their commitment to standards, accessibility and best practice in their work. Hopefully, one day all design agencies will work to the same standard as Propeller.

Damien’s eye for detail, website expertise and real marketing comprehension has led Propellor Graphics business to grow wonderfully. I’ve also observed the growth that other businesses have experienced after engaging Damien and Propeller Graphics as their web developer and graphic designer. A recent business award win, within their industry was the tip of things to come…

Propeller Graphic Design assisted me with the design of a broad range of brochures and advertisements during the establishment of my two businesses from January 2005. All art produced is still being used to this day. The attention I was given during this process was very personalised and usually involved quite tight time-lines. I would recommend Propeller Graphic Design particularly for this personal approach to their clientele.

I used Damien and Renee to provide the graphics work for the choozit.com.au website. Renee provided the graphic designs, Damien provided the page mockups and I worked them together into the technical product. Damien is a very professional web designer with a solid knowlege of how to put together well designed and maintainable web sites.

The world is changing. The majority of our enquiries are coming through the website, we made a conscious decision concerning our advertising dollars about 2 years ago. We visited many sites looking for ease of navigation, layout, and obviously we needed that ‘Wow’ factor. We also needed to be self administered, the rest as they say is history. Damien and Renee have delivered beyond expectation. Cheers.

The Australian Marine Conservation Society is Australia'€™s only charity dedicated to protecting our coast and ocean wildlife.

For over 40 years we have worked to create marine national parks, save our ocean wildlife and make our fisheries sustainable.

As a not-for-profit charity, we rely on the support from like-minded businesses and individuals across the country. Indeed, we could not do the work that we do without this support. Propeller Graphic Design & Marketing have been outstanding supporters of our work over the last few years by offering their pro-bono support for our graphic art work and marketing. Their in-kind contribution has included the production of high quality art work for presentation folders, stickers and brochures.

They have a flair for innovative, high-quality work which they deliver with little need for direction and a keen sense for what suits the job at hand. We remain in deep gratitude for their professional, first-rate contribution to our important work protecting our ocean wildlife.
