It all began in London, England, early 2007. I have always wanted to be a web designer. The idea of creating websites, owning my own company and seeing my websites on the world wide web seemed like a daydream fantasy.
I was working for Computacenter at the time as a Lenovo Business Development Manager, a Lenovo funded head. I was in a good position careerwise and had more than quadrupled my yearly target in the first quarter. Things were looking good for my future. I had just gotten engaged and was a highly paid twenty-six-year-old, but I wasn’t satisfied, I didn’t feel happy inside. Putting on a suit to go to work every day seemed to choke me. I had grown up my whole life surfing, wearing board shorts all day in sunny Durban, South Africa.
My fiance (now wife) at the time knew something wasn’t right with me and one day she sat me down, and we spoke about it. To this day, I remember our words like it was yesterday. I said, “I think I want to be a web designer. The idea of sitting behind a desk creating and working on websites seems like a dream job.” And that’s when Lauren said the words that changed my life forever. She said “Well do it, stop talking about it, go do a course. You are earning enough money now that you can afford to do a decent web design course and if at the end you decide you don’t like it well at least you gave it a try.”
And right there in that moment, our journey began, and Creative Ground was born.
Creative Ground has been making the web a better place since 2007.
We first started in the London, England. Before relocating across to South Africa in 2009. Today we call Burleigh Waters our home on the sunny Gold Coast of Australia. We migrated across to Australia in February 2014 and bought our digital agency with us. We specialise in web design, WordPress and digital marketing.Â

Find out a little more about how we work:
All work that we complete is done in house by ourselves and is not outsourced. We are a proudly owned and operated Australian family business.
Included in our designs is our On-page SEO Optimisation, so you know your website has the best start.
All websites are optimised for speed and performance.
We include a 160+ page WordPress training manual (via downloadable PDF) upon completion. Our training manuals are updated with each new version of WordPress.
We are WordPress and WooCommerce Specialists (the leading online platforms for websites and online stores)
We design and develop all of our websites on our exclusive Project Board. The advantage of this, is that your current website and SEO will not be affected during the design phase. You know your business, we listen and learn from you. Then we apply our creativity and build a site that best represents your brand, industry, and goals.
We build all websites on a sub-domain of our private development portal. Which means that your current website will not be affected during the design phase and when we take your new site live the change-over will only take 5 to 10 minutes to complete, which we can complete outside of working hours if you would prefer.
