At Hopping Mad Designs, we work on the principle that an exceptional website must meet the highest combined standards of design, function and performance. As a boutique design agency, our reputation depends on our ability to deliver high-quality websites every time, without fail.
The web design must be original, creative and on brief. It serves to capture and express your brand in a way that is fresh and innovative, yet relevant to your industry. Our designs stand out for all the right reasons. Our in-house web design team works closely with our clients to achieve a true sense of their needs. It is our web designers’ role to bring your vision to life, while enhancing it with their design experience and insight.
Website functionality is key to user engagement. A website that functions well, guides the user effortlessly from page to page. It makes visiting your website an enjoyable experience and encourages the user to return. Our web design team delves beyond look and feel to ensure your website functions smoothly and logically.
Website performance is the true measure of your website’s success. At Hopping Mad Designs, our expert search engine optimisation (SEO) team works closely with our designers to ensure your website will be optimised to perform. We build a website with your objectives in mind and through expert search engine optimisation (SEO) and carefully placed content we strive to ensure it delivers tangible results.
A Website that Works for You
Hopping Mad Designs believes in creating lasting web solutions by producing a dynamic website that is appealing on the eye, easy to navigate and performs for your business.
As we design each website from the brief up, we have the capacity to produce a website that is specific to meeting your online needs, be it a 'brochure style' website or a more complex e-commerce, database-driven site. With our expert guidance, your website can achieve a range of functions and provide you with a valuable tool for sales, marketing, promotion, information and customer growth.
Following the creation of your website, we continue to look after our clients, ensuring our content management system (CMS) is user friendly, which enables you and your staff to keep your content current and relevant. We also offer CMS user support by telephone as well as user training, to enable a smooth transition once your website goes live.
Sydney Based Web Designers
Our web design team is conveniently located in Sydney. A creative and professional in-house team of designers and developers carries out all of our work under the guidance of our industry-leading Creative Director.
We never 'off-shore' our work, which means that you can deal direct with the web designer heading your project, and that we can maintain the highest quality and standards with each and every website we produce.
We believe creativity is achieved through collaboration. At each phase of the web design project, the creative director will consult directly with you to ensure the design correlates with your vision and objectives. Together, with your insight into your business and our expertise as designers, we can create a successful design.

How We Design
We work with you to develop a design brief that delivers a graphic design solution that delivers. Not only is it visually stunning, it works to sell your service, communicate your message and deliver results. The design brief stage is often a process of working out what a client doesn't want. It involves evaluating the competition and looking at what they do–and then doing it better. Hopping Mad Designs provide bespoke design solutions for your business–unique and original. At design stage we develop several concepts, fine tuning and developing the ones we feel work the best–only presenting to you the designs we are happy with and that have been approved by the Creative DIrector. We take on board your feedback and make you a part of the design process. We develop and deliver the final design collateral to you, managing it through to print if required. The final results–more often that not–exceed a client's expectations.
A Hopping Mad Graphic Design is:
Unique—all of our work is created in our Sydney design studio by our design team, overseen by our creative director.
Well executed—we are meticulous with our layout and typesetting to ensure the final quality is of the highest standard.
Exceptional—our designs work for your business to achieve results.

Just got your new website designed and are in a hurry to get it ranking on Google? Be warned. If you are impatient, and want speedy results, then you will end up with your website being banned or penalised from Google’s search results. If you are wanting better search engine rankings for your website, then you need to not only be working with a top SEO provider plus a great web design, but you must also be extremely patient. Fast results in the SEO world can be an issue. To rank properly and secure you position online you cannot be overly anxious about your ranking. Give it time and it will happen for you. Waiting can be a killer if you are the impatient type, especially if you are the type of person that likes to see fast results. But if you push too quickly you will do more damage to your online status and here’s why……
Facebook is the biggest social media platform on the internet and businesses looking for an alternative place to advertise should be seriously considering advertising on Facebook in conjunction with their other marketing streams. Over the past 6-12 months we have been experimenting with Facebook advertising for ourselves as well as clients and have found, quite surprisingly, that Facebook delivers a great return on investment. These ads are quite cheap in comparison to Google for example and the inquiry rates can be as high as ads placed on other directories or search engines. In the competitive online advertising and web world, this is great news for businesses and companies looking to attract new customers as well as exploring new and emerging markets.
The internet landscape is like the ocean – you really can’t turn your back on it for a minute. You have to be ever vigilant and be on top of the constant changes that are being implemented by the big search engine players, especially Google. Look at the recent and I mean 2014 Google's Hummingbird update, SEO and website design companies like us, need to look at what trends are appearing and ways that we can stay on top of these evolving algorthim changes. Saying that, following are some important SEO techniques that we will be using in 2014 as part of our SEO strategy for your business as well as our own HMD website.
Think about this fact. When was the most recent time that you had a good long hard examination of your website and made some amends. I am not talking some basic text edits here. I am referring to getting in touch with a web design agency, sitting down with them and going over a new online strategy. Basically a complete website overhaul or refresh. If the answer is not within the last 2 years then there is something wrong. Websites like any part of your business need constant attention. Failing to do this is a serious issue and will result in a loss of business. If this sounds all too familiar then urgent action is required. Delaying any changes to your website just means that you will be left further behind and you may never be able to catch up. So if your website is more than 2 years old, then this article is a must read!
Will our website design be a template or will it be customised?
Our work is always based on a unique and compehensive brief given by you. We pride ourselves on never using templates—all of the creative concepts we present are original, and our ideas are specifically tailor made for your business or company. If we ask a lot of questions in the beginning, it’s because we actually care about your opinion and want the design to be a true embodiment of your company or brand. Every website designed by Hopping Mad has its own unique personality. We discuss the user interface, advcie on website architrecture and look at ways that make your website more successful than your competitors. With us you website is assured on being a success!
Why does original design matter?
Standing out online is what it is all about. Your website must have a point of difference, and it is our job to capture this for you with original and captivating graphics. Most of the companies that you find on Google use templates and pass it off as original work. When you choose Hopping Mad Designs, we give you a guarantee that we will never sell you a template.
What happens if I do not like the designs you present?
We always spend time getting to know you, and your company, so as to be able to present a couple of design options for you based on your unique brief. We know that sometimes wires get crossed, and if we are ever 'off brief' we will happily take your critique and make the necessary amendments to ensure that you are 100% happy with the final product.
We’ve had bad design experiences before, how can we be certain you’re not like the others?
Remember, we live by our product (you can’t hide bad designs). We pride ourselves on being able to help you achieve the best graphic and web design solutions for your business. We are here to partner with you for the long term—the better we make your business look, the happier we are.

Do you work Australia wide?
Yes we do. We offer our design services to clients across Australia.
Do I own the artwork at the end of the job?
At the end of the job you will own all the final artwork files. We will ensure that you have high-quality files that can be applied to a range of future projects, and, of course, you own the intellectual property.
Do I work with an account manager?
No you don’t. Once you start working with Hopping Mad, we will allocate you with your own dedicated designer. You do not deal with an account manager or 'suit'. This saves you time and money. Of course if you want to speak with one of the owners, we are just a phone call away.
Will you make sure my website appears prominently on Google after launch? Do you employ dedicated SEO staff?
Our CMS has been built to be as search engine friendly as possible. For those requiring additional services in this area, we have an online marketing team that includes experts in search engine optimisation.

Yes! Our Online Reputation Management service can help you bury negative reviews so deep, they won’t continue to do damage to your company searches.
I want to set up a Google +, Instagram, Twitter or Facebook profile – can you help?
