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.
The national ceremony was held at King’s Street Wharf in Sydney, where awards were presented to web developers across the country for the excellence of their work in a range of business sectors.

The criteria for a two-stage judging process* were:
- Accessibility Compliance, Site Performance, Site Validation

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.

From Our Clients
.. a reliable and steadfast operator, with a keen sense of service. Innovative and contemporary, and operating within the upper echelon.
I recently engaged Digital Tsunami to design and build my 60-page website. I'm a website copywriter who relies heavily on web-generated business, so my own online presence needs to be impeccable.
The solution that Digital Tsunami supplied is brilliant. It meets my needs perfectly; it's clean, bold, elegant, fast, and easy to edit. I've had lots of very positive feedback about it, and since launch, my request for quote rate and conversion rate have increased markedly.
The team at Digital Tsunami was incredibly responsive, delivering a solution well ahead of deadline. Their technical knowledge was exceptional, they were innovative, and they were very meticulous. What's more, they understood my business and technical requirements and translated them into a user-friendly, refined, professional site which is conceptually simple and cohesive.
I have no hesitation in recommending the website design services of Digital Tsunami to any business .. that needs a stand-out online presence.
The services provided included the registration of our domain name, establishment of our email accounts, and development & hosting of our website, were all executed rapidly and effectively. We also appreciate the service of upgrading our list of 150 shelf company names (in Chinese characters and English) every 2 weeks.
We valued the high level of creative design provided by Digital Tsunami, both for the website and the corporate identity.
.. accurately interpreted the project brief and the outcome was a piece of cost effective quality work.
Once again, thanks for your promptness and partnership.
The current challenge of my job at Abbott is one of the greatest I've faced in 25 years of IT career. It's reassuring to know I can count on people like you when things go wrong.
