A little about Big Busy Designs

Big Busy Designs is a small freelance design business based in Brisbane, Australia.  If you or your business are looking for designers who are reliable, budget friendly and close to home, we are the perfect business for you. We understand that it is important for some people to be able to meet their web designers face to face to communicate what you desire out of your website, graphic project or cartoon and illustration and we are happy to do this if you prefer.

If you are not from Brisbane or would just prefer to communicate with your designers via phone, email or skype then we can also accommodate your needs. We work hard to ensure we answer all enquiries within 24 hours and if you decide to work with us we will keep communicating with you throughout the whole design process to ensure that our finished product is exactly what you wanted.

I had finally decided, ‘yes, I need a website for my business’ and Shelley from Big Busy Illustration & Design was recommended to me by another colleague. I contacted Shelley, and immediately, I felt comfortable with her. Shelley was so easy to work with, her pricing is extremely reasonable, and nothing was ever too much trouble for her. Shelley worked with me effortlessly to produce an incredible website of such an extreme high quality (I still get comments about how lovely my website is today). I would recommend Shelley and the team to anyone seeking an extremely professional website at an affordable price. I cannot speak highly enough of Shelley’s work and her fantastic customer service skills.

I have used Shelley at Big Busy since 2009 to design business cards, brochures, upgrade my website and lately moniter social media. She is highly skilled at blending subject, design and colour to create products that are aesthetically pleasing and eye catching. Each project I have used her for has been done in an economical and timely manner. I will be using her for many years to come.
Jenny Byrne, EastWest Fertility

Wendy Harper-Penman, Event Social Planners
I was recommended to Shelley and Big Busy Design over 5 years ago. Shelley not only development my website but has been a constant source of professional assistance over the years. I have had no hesitations in promoting them to other businesses and have been thrilled to have seen these same businesses have their websites developed. I look forward to continued business with them.
Terri Baker, I'm Puzzled
After first contact with Shelley from Big Busy Design, I have been nothing but amazed at her ability to complete such professional, eye catching and thorough work. I initially had Shelley design my business web page, which I have had numerous compliments about, then I requested a product overhaul on the website which was completed very quickly. She also assisted on many customer designs with my wrappers and sometimes at very late notice but nothing was too much trouble. My husband then recruited Shelley to design a website for his business as he was so impressed with her work. I can’t speak highly enough about Shelley and her husband’s standard of work and would recommend them to anyone that will listen!
Anna, Chocolates by Design
We could not have asked for better service; they had incredibly fast turnaround times for correspondence, equally fast times to accommodate changes requested to the design, and were sensitive to our very specific requirements. The design was very elegant and modern – exactly what we were after. Thank you, Big Busy Designs.
Paul Byrne, Byrne Law

I was always responded to quickly and nothing was too difficult. We are really happy with our site, check it out at www.wightman.com.au
