We bring your digital dreams to life!

Who are we?  We are a team of digital experts who specialise in creating and developing websites to support and enhance your business. We deliver cutting edge websites designed to help you smash your business goals and blow your competition out of the water!

Founded in 2010, our boutique agency located in Hawthorn Melbourne boasts a small but super talented team of digital legends. We love what we do! So what do we do, you ask? We build affordable websites from the ground up. That’s us in a nutshell. Everything we create is custom designed and developed to suit your business needs and goals. Building WordPress websites is our bread and butter, but we also specialise in branding (think logo design and style guide development), content marketing (think blogs and e-newsletters), and all of those added extras like SEO, UX design, and hosting and website maintenance comes with the package if you want it to!

Our clients range from hospitality, to finance, to online boutiques. We have recently worked with some major players in their field such as Lavazza and Monash University, and we are the go-to for the entire AppleJack Hospitality family of establishments. Yes, we’ve earned our street cred in these areas, but we love a challenge! If you have a digital dream and you want to work with a small team of digital marketing experts, let’s chat!

Our Clients

We like to think that our calibre of clients says a lot about the standards we uphold here at SGD. We work with lots of start-ups and small businesses, helping them get some amazing results. But we also work with huge brands like coffee experts Lavazza, and educational platforms such as Monash University. These larger, innovative projects allow us to grow our skillset and challenge ourselves as we push the boundaries in web development.

How we work

At SGD, we believe that being honest, open and transparent is the best way to do business. Encouraging two-way communication every step of the way, we will work hand in hand with you to produce a sustainable, affordable online strategy for your brand. And don’t worry that you’ll be on your own once your new website is launched. We’re in this for the long haul!
