Plug-ins + Applications
- Online Forms
- PHP and MySQL. Online forms cater for a wide variety of uses including enquiry forms, event registrations, information requests and much more.
- Online Menu Ordering System
- This system allows restaurants to add their menu online so customers can order (or pre-order) meals ready for their arrival or to takeaway. System can be email order only or linked to a payment gateway.
- Corporate workers often have a short lunch break making it hard to dine at local restaurants. This system allows them to order and pay prior to arrival. The order is sent via email with order details, special requests, number of guests in the party and the time they will arrive.
- Takeaway options also become more attractive removing the wait time between placing an order and picking it up.
- This system can be adapted to suit other businesses and industries using the same principles.
- Interactive PDF Viewer
- While PDF's are a common element online, viewers are required to have Adobe Acrobat installed to view the files. Our interactive PDF viewer displays documents onscreen, similar to a magazine layout (complete with flicking pages) and no need to install any programs to run it.
- Other benefits to this viewer is the ability to search, output to PDF and view by page and contents. Take it for a test run here.
- E-News Mailing System
- Our prefered online mailing system is PHPList - an open source mailing program ideal for newsletters, publicity lists, notifications, and many other uses.
- No limitations on subscribers, no duplicate mail, view and track sent mail, easy import and export of contacts, easily split your mailing lists to attract core demographics and so much more.
- We manage installation, setup and customisation. We can also handle your enewsletters and mailouts at very affordable rates.
- Database Development
- Many websites include database development and control. We can help with setup and on-going management for uses including member login zones, user profiles, product management and online directories.
- Blog Integration + Support
- Wordpress blogs are an excellent tool when it comes to increasing web exposure and adding dynamic content. It is easy to self maintain or we can manage it for you. (We can even write articles for you.)
- Clients can also utilise Wordpress so that it holds full e-newsletter articles. E-newsletters work hardest when there is not an information overload but easily linked paragraphs to click and read more.
- We can also link Wordpress blogs to your social media platforms automatically (Facebook and Twitter). Added exposure - no on-going work.
- Social Media Integration
- Social Media is a powerful marketing tool in today's society. It is one thing to have a Facebook or Twitter account. It is another to do it well. Customised entry pages, interactive competitions, enticing specials, promotions and much more can easily create a cost effective marketing campaign.
Size does matter.
Small enough to care. Big enough to get the job done right. Shell Graphix is a small studio which means we can offer flexibility and a more personalised, extensive service. One key contact for the life of our relationship makes it easy to build a solid business relationship. Oh, and did we mention we give you total control and ownership of all your design materials?
Focus on the creativity.
Do you have what it takes to be the best? To get maximum results you need to stand up and be noticed. If you want to look better and attract more attention than your competitors you need to up the ante.
Captivate your audience with innovation, curiousity, humour, knowledge, shock and temptation. A point of difference is vital. We’ve gotcha covered.
It takes two to tango.
Our clients are as diverse as our ideas. We work with businesses big and small based locally, nationally and internationally. The beauty of the Internet means we can be virtually anywhere and everywhere.
We have worked with clients all over the world including Brisbane, Gold Coast, Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Tasmania, Adelaide, America, New Zealand, South Africa and Canada.
Communication is the key.
In order to develop the most productive piece possible we need a solid understanding of what you do and who you do it for.
We are no stranger to the game of 20 questions and are fast becoming experts in a whole range of fields and industries.
We are also readily able to explain why things will or won’t work across the various design platforms - in plain English no less!
Food for thought.
We are forever curious (or bored easily - depending how you look at it) and pride ourselves on constantly trying something new.
This means we are always on the lookout for inspiration, latest trends and technologies. We are on the ball with graphic, web, marketing, print, copywriting and social media.
Not sure what you want? We can help you work it out.
A method to our madness.
While we like to push the boundaries at every opportunity we are firm believers that some rules should not be broken.
We insist on compliance standards when it comes to print, post and the Internet. Years of knowledge and on-going professional development ensure we stay up to date and know what will work hardest for graphic and web designs.
Loyal to a fault.
We offer a noncompete clause. In order to make you the best in your industry we really can’t be competing with ourselves. There is an easy way to prevent this - and that is by ensuring we never take on competing clients.
(Makes our clients feel a little bit special too!)
"Shell Graphix was able to multitask and meet the needs of our company. We believe we have the best of both worlds - exceptional service and prices we are happy with."
Gary Barnett, Director, Australian Industrial Abrasives - Yatala Australia
