For the past 15 years we have been pouring our heart and soul into our craft. We have gained a strong reputation for delivering high-quality, creative digital solutions, and a vast amount of experience in the process.
Our unique mix of design prowess, technical know-how, and a business-oriented approach allows us to offer solutions that go much deeper than aesthetics alone. We craft solutions to deliver results, and enjoy seeing those results translate to success for each business we are lucky enough to work with.
We are inspired by design, music, fashion, art and the colourful characters who reside within these sub-cultures. These are the influences we bring to each and every digital experience we conceive & create.
You may catch us seeking fresh inspiration, be it floating in the sea at sunrise, or at a gallery come night-fall. We also like to further our knowledge through frequent involvement in industry events (Analogue Digital + Semi-Permanent) and get-togethers. We are always finding new inspiration, and always learning.
Your online presence must be robust, so that it can adapt as your business changes and grows. Our collaborative approach to developing robust digital solutions for business applies to platforms of all types, most commonly:
Ecommerce website design & development
Blog design & development
Search engine optimisation
We create smart digital solutions by combining our strategic, creative and technical skills – all together the outcome is impressive.
We are of the belief that inspiration can be found everywhere. We are immersed by a relaxed coastal lifestyle and produced this based on what we see each day. Our kids doodling with crayons triggered this event. We find it intriguing that lifestyles are conveyed through fashion, so we helped build this blog. We strive for balance, in our design, and in our lives. Inspiration comes at us from all angles.
Our weekly habits include surfing, skateboarding, taco-munching and a begrudging addiction to strong espressos from our local baristas. These are our favourite pursuits, and are centred around self-expression and a need to adapt to constant change; no two waves are the same, every line is carved differently, and the subtle nuances of taste are always different. Our environment is unique, and we are lucky to be a part of it.
It’s common knowledge within the creative industries that Chris is a likeable lad. 15 years of consistently impressive design work will do that. The Bones Brigade VHS copped some severe over-use during Chris’ childhood, and to this day his inspiration is still formed by skate, surf, music, art, design and fashion. You’ll catch Chris giving a new craft beer or single origin coffee a nudge in his spare time, being a firm believer that some good ol’ fashioned hard work entitles one to some good ol’ fashioned grub.
Sky diving. Mountain biking. Kite surfing. This is not a list of two-worded extreme sports (well it is, but…) this is just a typical weekend for Alex. With over 10 years of experience as a PHP programmer, he figures he needs to make the most of his time away from computer screens. Alex also likes vegetables more than meat, and music with a beat.
As a true digital native, Laura combines her knowledge of emerging trends with aspects of traditional design to create tailored visual outcomes, both online and in the flesh. An avid enthusiasm of minimalism (less is always more), she spends her spare time penning articles for a motley crew of local readers by discovering good music, good reads, independent projects, nice clothes, nice people, food, drink and adventure.
Coding sites since the new millennium, Sam brings a wealth of development experience to the Thirteen crew. When Sam’s not coding you can catch him on the local b-ball courts, smacking down hoops like Dwayne Wade, or smashing & thrashing the PS3 with never before seen combos in Mortal Kombat. Sam’s a good guy to have on your side.
Flowers make the world a better place and Small Bunch just made it even better. We designed and developed an ecommerce website that is elegant, minimal and allows the flowers be centre stage. The site is fully responsive so your experience is the same across all devices. Treat yourself and send yourself a bunch.
We assist one of Australia’s biggest outdoor adventure stores Wild Earth drive traffic to their online store. Whether it’s a Stock Take Sale or a Father’s Day promotion we design each email campaign individually ensuring it arrives in your inbox pixel perfect!
Our task was to design and develop a website for the newly formed Queensland Health agency, Office of the Health Ombudsman. Our solution includes a complete CMS with functions such as language translation, complex online forms and a complete responsive layout to name a few.
The website is a tool and resource to assist all Queenlanders should they have a complaint about a health service provided to them.
Our latest project for Canteen Coffee and Canteen Kitchen allowed us to bring their passion for all things caffeine and fresh food to life. We developed a custom design and responsive website (no templates here!) to showcase their delicious offerings.
Artery Store is a ladies fashion store located at several South East Queensland markets. Artery required a digital presence that was simple, informative and one that reflected their style.
Thirteen Digital decided a responsive, single page (parallax) scrolling website was the most suitable, this allows for any visitor to easily connect and locate Artery Store markets stalls.
We were given the task to design and develop an entire new digital presence for Tweed Tourism. By utilising their fantastic image library we were able to create a design that reflected the region.
We developed the website using a content management system which allows Tweed Tourism to easily maintain their content. It also enable local operators to create their own profile which promotes their business.
Not only did we design and develop the QMHC website, but we also developed their brand. The QMHC brand we developed encapsulates mental health issues in Queensland, and is now used across all of QMHC’s collateral including stationery, print, signage and digital executions.
The QMHC website has been developed to educate Queenslanders on the Commission’s role, share information, publish documents, promote projects and encourage participation in the mental health and harmful drugs space. The website adheres to the QLD Government’s strict consistent user experience (CUE) guidelines, while enabling the client to maintain the site’s content using a Content Management System.
CORE Project Managers specialise in the management building and construction projects. Nestled within an industry which often misses the importance of strong branding, we designed a new corporate identity and website for CORE Project Managers which stands out from of the crowd.
The CORE team are based on the Gold Coast, and are passionate about their work and innovation. We think shows in their new look.
Ange is a blogger who loves fashion. She wanted to take her existing blog, based on a free platform called Blogger, to the next level. The restrictions of the free Blogger platform were cramping her style and potential.
We developed a brand identity for Her Heart Cries Fowl, and incorporated this into the design of a new self-hosted WordPress blog which reflects Ange’s personality. HHCF’s Facebook Page has also been customised to maintain consistency across all of Ange’s preferred methods of spreading the word.
The RP1 Building in Varsity Lakes offers a unique proposition to the commercial property market on the Gold Coast, and the head of tenancy required a method of showcasing this property’s unmatched benefits to potential leasers.
Thirteen Digital developed a brand identity specifically reflecting the key benefit of this property, that being the fibre-optic cable throughout the premises, as well as a website which elaborates on the characteristics and benefits of tenancy at the RP1. The site also captures key contact information from potential tenants via strategically positioned online forms.
Let’s Face It is an art show like no other. A night of live screen printing by acclaimed local and international artists + live graffiti + DJs + refreshments + a creative gallery setting requires a lot of organisation, and Thirteen Digital have done it all…..twice!
With the first event being a success in November 2012, and the second happening in May 2013 with a turnout 10 times as large, we have a feeling that there will be more Let’s Face It events to come just around the corner.
