Some of Our Clients
Research and Strategy
To develop a website that really works for you, or an online marketing strategy that optimises your marketing budget and reaches your goals, we spend a significant amount of time on research of various kinds as part of the preparation process.
- User research
- Online Strategy
- Website audits
How you choose to represent your company or organisation – both online and offline, can have a dramatic effect on the effectiveness of your marketing and communications efforts. Whether you are a new business wanting to build a brand and needing the visual aspects of that brand created for you, or you have an existing brand identity and it’s time for an upgrade or repositioning - our design team is ready to help. Experienced and qualified, the Lemon’s graphic designers are equally at home designing for print, multi-media or web. They understand the importance of an integrated visual identity that works effectively for your business across a range of media and channels, from websites to vehicle fleets, business cards to billboards.

The systems and platforms we use to build client websites tend to evolve over time as new solutions are developed, but our current favourite platform and CMS (content management system) is Joomla! Why Joomla? Because it is open-source, which means that website developers all around the world are using the source code, and sharing the tweaks, enhancements, customisations, components and extensions they have developed with others. It’s also an easy CMS for our clients to use themselves, which means your website won’t suffer from that greatest of all time fails, horrendously out of date content. You’ll be able to update text, images, video and files on your site quickly and easily – without needing a computer science degree to do it. In addition to the Joomla websites we build, many of our clients have existing sites that use other platforms, so our developers regularly work with them to make changes to their sites as required.

Having a well designed, built and optimised website is absolutely critical because it plays such an important role in the research and recruitment process for our prospective students. Our enrollment numbers (both domestic and international) continue to increase year on year and we know the work Hairy Lemon has done on our website is a major contributing factor to this positive trend.Hamish Taylor, Natcoll Design Technology
