- “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.”
Propeller don’t just build full websites – we also consult and provide assistance to graphic designers, web designers, programmers and PR & Marketing Agencies. We understand that website creative work, front-end engineering and programming are very different disciplines and we’re happy to fit into your project where you need us.

For Graphic Designers
You’re a graphic designer with a flair for the creative but when it comes to web design you don’t want to spend weeks trying to figure out the vagaries of html and css. We’re happy to take your PSD‘s or Fireworks mock-ups and turn them into clean, standards-compliant XHTML templates or pages using pure CSS for layout and styling.
If your client is looking for a CMS based site and you don’t want to get your hands dirty with the PHP and MySQL side of things, we’ll take care of that too. We’ll even throw in training so you (or your client) can take care of the site after launch.
For Web Designers
You’ve been designing and building websites for years but would prefer to stick to either project management or the design side of things. It may be that you don’t have time to learn to use a CMS or can’t find the time to learn XHTML and CSS rather than using old-school html and tables.
If your client is looking for a CMS based site, we’ll take care of that too. We’ll even throw in training so you (or your client) can take care of the site after launch.
You’re a programmer and no doubt, damn good at it – but you’re no designer and when it comes to XHTML / CSS, you don’t have the time or inclination to learn or stay up to date with another language.
No problem – just send us your templates along with your brief and we’ll work with you to turn it into a beautiful, standards compliant, accessible site. We’ll help you get the design right, strip out any deprecated or unnecessary code from your templates leaving your links and front-side code alone.
In previous projects we’ve been able to reduce page weights by over 50% – not only dramatically improving loading times, but also ensuring that your site is search engine optimised and accessible.
Paul Smith, Choozit
âI 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.â September 13, 2008
For PR & Marketing Agencies
You’ve got the marketing plan worked out but you don’t have the skills in-house to develop beautiful, cutting edge, standards compliant sites for your clients. We’ll take care of the part of the project you can’t, whether it be simply providing design support, coding, cms installation & configuration or the whole digital side of things, you can rely on us to get the job done and make you look great.
Its ok, ssshh, we’ll keep it between ourselves ; )
How do you work and what else can you help me with?
Whatever your situation, we’ll work with you either to design and build or simply provide assistance with getting your code in order, ensuring that that fantastic site you designed or amazing application you developed, looks the part and works just as well, with clean, accessible, search engine friendly code.
