After a dramatic slider on the welcome page, the site displays product and lifestyle images, features and specifications datasheets, searchable answers to frequently asked questions, partners and contacts.

As with all websites developed over the last fifteen years, the site is responsive; adapting to the width of the screen on which it is viewed from the largest desktop to the smallest smartphone. A detailed Guidelines for Use document was produced and remote training sessions conducted to enable the client to update all elements of the microsite.

Founded in 1992, Optim was in need of an identity refresh, to reflect a 21st century brand.

After developing an icon, logotype and brandline for Optim, Digital Tsunami was commissioned to develop a web site which was informative but succinct. The first step to emphasise the planet-wide solutions which Optim delivers, was to propose a new top level domain; dot global.

The most commonly used online functionality for Optim clients is a secure online shipment tracker. A button link was prominently positioned in the header.

FTCC online

Paths to Positiviti responsive site

Paths to Positiviti is a Sydney based healthcare practice offering Clinical Hypnotherapy, Strategic Psychotherapy and Neuro-Linguistic Programming.

As a new practice, Paths to Positiviti required an online presence to promote its modalities, and itemise the behaviour and health conditions which can be treated.

Fundamental to the visual impact of the site, was the implicit concept of renewal. A commissioned photograph* of a pristine eucalypt trunk beneath peeling bark, conveyed this message on the website’s main page. (*This image served as a visual ambassador for the brand, as it was integrated into business card and print design).

Digital Tsunami developed a responsive site using the ‘mobile first’ philosophy which ensures that a web presence displays appropriately on all devices from handhelds to desktops. The WordPress CMS platform was the foundation, enabling the client to maintain content without any programming training.

The site specifies the conditions treated, including: addictions & dependencies, anxiety, body image, low self-esteem, OCD, phobias, postnatal depression, procrastination, PTSD & trauma, sleep disorders and smoking.

Digital Tsunami had previously developed the identity, and produced photography for the brand.

APRA AMCOS had launched an initiative in New Zealand with a contemporary responsive web presence.
