Website Design and Development Process
I’ll ask the right questions to uncover the truth about why you need a new website and exactly what it is you’re trying to achieve. Some of these questions may seem a little uncomfortable. In fact, if it doesn’t get a little awkward, then chances are I haven’t done my job.
Once I have all the information I need, I’ll build a visual sitemap so we can all get on the same page very quickly about what it is we’re trying to communicate and the best way to structure the information.
Now instead of trying to tell you what I intend to build and hoping you understand my jargon, at this point I’ll build an interactive prototype in the browser to show you how my solution will work. With no attention to design at this stage, it ain’t pretty, but it gets us close real quick.
The fun begins during the design stage because we get to play with the crayons and colouring pencils to bring your interactive prototype to life to match your brand identity.
Finally, we go underground for a couple of weeks and make sure everything is plugged in and tested before deploying your shiny new website to your hosting server so you can show it off to the whole world.

ANZAOMS has used the services of Daniel Sim Design...
over the last year to design a range of options for a new and modern logo for our Professional Association. ANZAOMS were keen to engage our Members in the process and Daniel was extremely helpful with a design brief and Member survey, obtaining maximum Member input into the process. He then provided a number of excellent options for our Members to choose from. The result is outstanding and we are very happy with our new branding. Daniel was at all times extremely responsive, very cost effective and has been very patient throughout the process. We would absolutely recommend Daniel Sim to others seeking logo design development or refresh.

Thank you to Daniel Sim Design...
The brief was to create a logo that would help inspire our students and create an identity for the school. The logo that Daniel created was fantastic. The process from start to finish was so easy and hassle free. Daniel and his team ask the necessary questions and their creativity and attention to detail take care of the rest. Not only are our students are proud of our school identity, the parents and school community have followed suit. This was a very pleasant and welcome surprise.

...This company by far exceeded our requirements
After being with the largest franchise company in the real-estate world for many years we looked at branching out on our own. The thought of this was very overwhelming… the Logo is the feel, the look, the strength and the face of your business, by far one of the most important aspects to the look of your business. I had no idea where to start – We had spoken to other companies and they did not have the sharp look we needed. I was referred to Daniel and would say that his approach, service and knowledge put us at ease immediately. We knew that he understood what we wanted and was so efficient to deliver us so many wonderful ideas and advice. Daniel has a great eye for detail and a flair that is very hard to find but the most refreshing aspect of our experience was his patience and professionalism. We have dealt with so many companies over this transition and this company by far exceeded our requirements. Daniel is a must if you a thinking of a new business or a new look for your current business. Thank You so much Daniel!

He was warm and friendly and expressed a genuine enthusiasm...
From the very first point of communication Daniel stood apart from other designers I had contacted. He was warm and friendly and expressed a genuine enthusiasm and interest in my work along with his initial vision for a brand identity. As an artist, I naturally had creative ideas of my own, but Daniel brought my ideas to life, exceeding all expectations with his impressive and beautiful work. He patiently allowed me to express all my thoughts and then directed my thinking towards a clean, eye-catching logo and somehow captured my personality within it, which was true genius seeing as he had never met me. I consider myself privileged to have worked with Daniel and cannot recommend him highly enough.

...much better than we expected and to our utter amazement...
It has been a wonderful experience working with Daniel Sim. Daniel Sim Designs was initially contracted for our corporate logo design, business’ cards and letter heads…as well as envelopes. Daniel came up with various concepts and patiently worked through our requests until we arrived at our final design; a design we were very very pleased with. When Daniel created the artwork for the business card, we were bowled over; it had a wonderful blend of subtlety, colour and content. It was much better than we expected and to our utter amazement, the cards were even better! Following this positive experience, it was only natural that we considered Daniel for the website. Once again he brought out a level of creativity in his work which left us, to put it plainly, dazed. The website speaks for itself…

His talent is limitless...
Finding a designer who shares your esthetic values is paramount to everything when embarking on a design project. I didn’t realize that I would find him all the way on the other side of the world! Thankfully, with the internet, we were able to work together effortlessly. Daniel created the “M2” logo for my pediatric dental practice over four years ago. From the start, we received so many compliments because it was so unique, colorful and fresh. Today, that logo is a brand. I had such a positive experience working with Daniel that I did not hesitate to go to him again with subsequent design projects. His talent is limitless and he is also one of the nicest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. He’s fair, honest, efficient and thorough. I know that we will continue to go to him with our design projects in the future. Why change when everything is great??? Thank you, Daniel, you have been a blessing to our business!

His professionalism was top notched...
Dear Daniel, I just wanted to say that it was a pleasure working with you! I truly appreciate your patience and allowing us to agree on designs that we really LOVE! You did an awesome job! I was afraid that the cost would be way out of my budget. Also, I thought that working with someone that was not local would be too hard to communicate i.e. my vision and ideas of how I wanted my logo refresh. I loved his work, his designs and his style. The look of his website was so clean and simple. His professionalism was top notched! Daniel made sure that I was 100% happy with his designs, before he finalized my logo. This was way more than I was contracted to get. Daniel has been very prompt with answering all my questions and fixing everything that I have requested. I was also able to directly contact him via phone…which was a huge plus! I would absolutely recommend Daniel to anyone looking for a professional graphics designer, website designer or logo designer. He has been so professional, understanding, and PATIENT throughout this entire project. Thanks again!

I liked Daniel’s work the BEST...
I had already paid two Web designers in my area (United States) and I wasn’t pleased. And so I Google logo specialist? And after reviewing a few logo designers, I liked Daniel’s work the BEST. But the only reason I was reluctant is because he was so far (Australia) and I was concerned about how well the long distance communication would flow and payment,but not getting what I paid for. BUT TO MY SURPRISE HE AND HIS TEAM WERE AMAZING!!!!! I decided to work with Daniel & team because they were so creative , unique in design, classy…..and I wanted something different. I was soooooo blessed during the whole process. Because he is amazingly patient ..and so easy to work with and I just loooved everything he did. I WAS VERY IMPRESSED. He was a great listener and very professional. I WOULD RECOMMEND HIS DESIGNS TO EVERYONE……HE NEEDS TO BE ON TV…. BECAUSE HE HAS STAR QUALITY :).

Daniel Sim designed the RSL...
Daniel Sim designed the RSL Commemorative Medallion, celebrating the signing of the armistice which brought World War One to an end. We were impressed with their level of involvement in the process, their need to understand the requirement and their attention to detail. Their advice was invaluable. Of course, the proof is in the pudding as they say. Copies of this medallion now reside in Buckingham Palace, the Governor General's residence and one has been placed in the collection of the Australian War Memorial. Thank you Daniel Sim Design.
