We’re glad you asked! In short, we are a friendly, communicative, organised and creative bunch, working locally from our Sydney office. We are a UX focussed web design agency passionate about results and your success.
We prefer to meet our clients in person when possible (Since Covid19 we also do a lot of zoom / video calls) as it helps us to establish clear communications and understand your business and goals. We don’t speak in techno babble but we certainly know the landscape from 20 years in the field.
During a project we’ll keep you involved and informed every step of the way. Our friendly project management team will create timelines, involve stakeholders and manage the whole design & development process. Whether it’s UX design, branding, website design or web development, we are a responsive and driven team and we care about the end result, your success is our success.
We always begin our projects with a UX research & discovery phase, this is so that our team can thoroughly understand your business, goals, customers, competitors & find opportunities for innovation!
During the wireframing and design phase, clients are presented with 2-3 handcrafted concepts to choose from. These are then refined until one is chosen. Once the master style is chosen, then we can proceed with designing the remaining pages, assets & UI design guides. We always include 3 rounds of revisions with each asset designed.
From there we develop and code the signed off designs across a number of codebases and platforms. We can develop across WordPress, Shopify, Drupal, Laravel, React, Vue, Angular to name a few. This is followed by QA, device testing and launch!
At the beginning of the commercial internet age (80-90’s), it was enough to present information on a web page and simply make it look nice without considering how visitors will consume it. 30 years later we have so much information fighting for our attention, if it is not easy to read, remember, look at and use, we’ll often go elsewhere. Enter UX…
UX or User Experience is the art of research, prototyping, designing, writing and testing for specific people with specific needs and making it seem effortless. The moment you become frustrated with a website or app, that is what we call bad UX. At Bapple we spend a considerable amount of time making sure that this does not happen because ultimately good UX leads to good business!

The price for a custom website or web application is not unlike a car, they range from $10,000 to well over $100,000. The price depends on many variables: the degree of customisation, number of user types, API system integrations, unique business logic, functions, creative direction and the number of unique pages required.
The majority of startups can start with a very simple 1-5 page website to begin with and a growing business should consider 10-30 pages with a defined marketing budget.
Similarly with web designers, not all operate to the standard of quality that we demand. We specialise in hand crafted web design with custom user experiences (UX), UI design systems, research and advanced code optimisations to help your website load super fast and rank well in Google. UX Design is absolutely crucial in the process of designing your site, as you not only need a responsive site, but you need powerful web design which will convert users through CRO optimisation.
As a result our custom designed websites and web applications tend to perform much better than your average off the shelf website because we put a lot of thought, research and care into our work so that they work for your business and your customers exactly as planned. Carefully crafting a winning UX design based off user search intent and target market is an underlying factor in award winning web design.

At Bapple, we pride ourselves on being a UX website design agency Surry Hills and Sydney clients love. Our clients keep on coming back to us as we create fascinating ways to promote their messaging. Why is this? Because we know how to balance communication and evocation.
You have a message. You have an idea. You have something to say. Let’s say it! Everything from your website design and development through to your multimedia offerings and your printed literature needs to be clear, crisp, precise. This way, your audience understands exactly what you’re all about.
Capturing the Essence
But you have something else too. Something that goes beyond your messaging and your words.
You have an essence. You have an ethos. You have an identity. You have a culture that your audience can buy into, so let’s capture that through meaningful user experience design.
This is what we mean by a balance. Your design needs to support your words with big, bold, unambiguous messaging. At the same time, it needs to evoke the spirit of what your organisation is all about. It needs to capture your essence, your individuality, your raison d’etre.
Branding is your identity — it is what your audience associated with your business. It touches everything from your creative website design right down to the UI Design systems and emails you deliver to your customers. This is why it’s so important to get it right, and this is why our branding and print services have become so popular with our clients.
Branding is an organisation’s equivalent of character, personality, a voice and the all important first impression to your customers. Great branding goes far beyond just a logo; at a glance it communicates a feeling, a culture, a colour palette, a narrative tone and a demographic to your viewers. Dig a little deeper and a great brand reveals values, soul, a story, integrity and the character of a company.
Good branding is rarely an accident or unconsidered, it is a well thought out modus operandi of an organisation. Mix your business identity with powerful and creative web design, and you’ve got a remarkable combination, which allows your website to speak for your brand. We’ve seen great success from this, offering quality solutions for online catering and ordering through creative web design. Speak to us about branding.

The name Bapple is derived from a concept; to fuse two disparate but loosely connected ideas to form a new idea. Banana + Apple = Bapple. But let’s face it, it’s really just a silly word smoosh.
In 2006, after years designing for Sydney’s top agencies and having landed some high profile clients of his own, founder Peter Kawecki set out to build a website design agency with a reputation for creative, engaging and human centric digital products; less about digital trends, more about the people that use them.
Great design is all about inspiring change — about disrupting the status quo and approaching the world in a new and exciting way. This is our ethos here at Bapple, and we believe in driving positivity as we help our clients on the way to making the world a better place.
