As a member of the Australian Web Industry Association (AWIA), Digital Tsunami contributed to the Australian Web Awards 2013, with stills photography and video coverage of the event.

Founder of the AWIA and the Australian Web Awards, Bret Treasure, delivered an enthusiastic introductory speech on the Awards’ objective to promote the industry, to champion web standards, to acknowledge excellence, and to provide marketing advantage to companies working at the highest level. He exhorted all professional web developers to submit their best work to the 2014 awards.

Apart from documenting the evening, a short film is to be produced promoting the event for future years.

From Our Clients
(We) took a fairly substantial audit of .. sophisticated sites both technically and creatively .. Out of six prominent designers, Digital Tsunami stood out.
The quality of the images, the sophisticated management of text .. together with smooth animations makes (our) website of very high calibre.
I would personally rate this site in the top 2 percent of world wide web sites today.
I worked with Andrew on a photography project that involved a high level of visual complexity for a multinational client. Andrew was clear and professional in his briefing, but at the same time, was open to other ideas and approaches.
Andrew and the team at Digital Tsunami are an absolute joy to work with, going above and beyond to design and host an amazing website for Cameragal Montessori School. Their work has led to an increase in enrolments and greater visibility within the community. They are always quick to make suggestions for improvement and implement changes - the embodiment of great customer service.
Thank you for the development of an updated brand image for Wah Yuet in China.
While originally contracted to produce a video highlighting Wah Yuet's manufacturing capabilities, it was apparent very quickly that your understanding of our requirements, combined with your experience, were the perfect fit to create a new logo and style guidelines for the company. While relatively small in scope, you were dedicated to the success of the project and I am pleased to say that you hit the bullseye!
We are all very happy with the new website and believe it captures the essence of the Group One brand.
Andrew and colleagues were able to assist at every step of the website production process, providing a sleek layout with high quality images. We would like to thank the Digital Tsunami team for an excellent job.
