Website Design

We pride ourselves that we reside in the picturesque town of Hermanus. Here, you can take a closer look at why we do what we do, and how it can help you do what you want to do.

What goes into a Website project?

Having an online presence for any business is an essential building block to help your clients find you and learn more about your products and services. Our team will start by interviewing you to establish your time, budget and goals, from there we can advise you on a realistic expectation with a solid plan to help your business grow. Our designs and experience will truly give your company the edge it needs to stand out and gain traffic.

We have a solution for all budgets and business’s

The 4 main design and development phases;

    • Interview – Establish time frame, budget and goals
    • Design – bringing the project to life
    • Online Marketing – building your online visibility
  • Ongoing Optimization – tweaking and improving the site

Aura Design has been the driving force behind our company’s success.
