About Crystal Web Designs
We are Devoted to our Clients
In 2011, after having worked for many years in the industry, we became tired of the lack of innovation and understanding of what the internet was about and how it should be utilised to benefit every person and company.
We saw many unscrupulous companies out there especially in the SEO industry and many companies touting themselves as "leaders in the field" and "experts at web development" but were all simply snake oil salesman. The problem with the web development industry is that there is no cost to enter so any Tom, Dick and Harry can call himself an expert and this tends to leave many company owners with incomplete websites, blown budgets and a frustration that can last years.
Something was missing and with this opinion, a new vision was brought to life. Crystal Web Designs was born.
Since then we have spent countless hours developing systems and bringing ideas to life. We've built our company on the back of the idea that every client deserves the best support and service - no matter what size or type of website they have.
With our office located in Hawthorn East, Victoria, Crystal Web Designs has a team of 10 staff. We have great goals and aspirations and aspire to be something special. As one of the first companies in Australia to venture into Magento specialisation, we have developed over 30 Magento extensions, whilst deploying, building and supporting over 300 clients. We have an amazing cloud email hosting system, look after hundreds of domains and offer some of the fastest website hosting in the country. We love to excel and be true leaders in all fields that we tackle. This isn't just talk, but backed up with evidence that we love to show each of our clients.
You can trust that when work is requested through our company, it will be done by a team of talented individuals.
