thefruitfamily-julzABOUT BURNING FRUIT

Burning Fruit Pty Ltd was formed in 2014 by the merging of two web design companies, bringing over 30 years combined experience in usability, design, development and corporate consulting to the table.

Stephen Wigley arrived in Perth from the U.K. in 2005 to start a new life with his young family. He created Innovision IT, delivering websites to customers outside of his full-time job. Innovision IT grew to a point where in 2013, Steve was able to concentrate full time on growing the business.

After graduating from and teaching at Curtin University, Julian Dyer had been running a web design business part time in the same local area.

COLLABORATION OVER COMPETITION

After meeting, the pair decided to collaborate instead of compete. Both Steve and Julz shared a vision of improving the web experience for both businesses in Perth and their respective visitors. They knew putting usability at the forefront of every web design would achieve this and knew no other web development agency did the type of investigative work that they were intending. After successfully trialling a number of projects, Burning Fruit was created.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

Our mission is to empower businesses in their online space to reach out and speak directly to their target market.

By placing the target audience at the centre of any web design, we establish what is and isn’t working, ultimately identifying what the target market wants.

Most of our customers are on their second or third website and are pleasantly surprised at our fresh approach.

OUR CAPABILITY

Having grown our team over the past year, we pack a wealth of experience with over 30 years’ combined experience in the industry, and over 13 years’ experience in user experience. Our team comprises of:

  • Consultants and team leads
  • Qualified web designers
  • Qualified web and application developers
  • We all wear a number of hats so we all get a different perspective of Burning Fruit and also helps us be responsive to your issues.
COME ON BOARD!

Coming on board with Burning Fruit is easy, we are a one stop shop offering easy billing, payment plans, competitive pricing and a friendly and approachable nature – no geek talk here.

We’ll come to your premises to personally go through a development plan to outline what we can do for you.

Feel free to get in touch with us and find out how we can improve what you do with your online presence.
