What we’re about…

The Design People is a Sydney based small and medium business web designer company, founded by Nicholas Morris, a web designer based in Alexandria in Sydney, Australia.

Nic has been building websites for 20 years and strives to achieve a personal best with each new creation. Once his goal and look and feel of the site is in line with yours, he comes up with a couple of designs and tweaks them until you are 100% satisfied.

What’s more, from 2014 all of our websites have been built responsively for all types of visual formats including smart phones and tablets. This means that your message can get out to more people in all types of situations.

If you live in Sydney or Newcastle or thereabouts, Nic will come to you (we can meet up for a coffee close to your office or somewhere in the city). If you live further afield – overseas or too far away from our base, we are happy to facilitate a chat on Skype or by telephone if it’s easier for you.

Call or email us today for a quote or to further enquire about your new site. You won’t be disappointed with the results!
