Why Compass Web

We are a web design studio based in North Sydney. Our aim is to provide creative, beautiful and user-centred design solutions for our clients.

A well designed website is a vital asset to any business. As the market’s flooded with cheap, poorly designed and restricted websites, we believe in an open web. Unlike services such as Squarespace or Wix, we use an open-source platform called WordPress to ensure that you own the website. You’re not locked into a proprietary system like other providers.

Our Design Philosophy

Our design philosophy is user-centred. We want to know how your users want, need or use the product or service you’re offering. We combine that research with a beautiful design and it’s a foundation for a success website.

In combination with a good design, we love photography. We can assist you with selecting photo’s that will make your website unique. If there’s no photo’s available, we can take them for you. Stunning imagery is vital for a success website today.


As mentioned early, we’re fans of the CMS (Content Management System) WordPress. We use it for all the sites we build as it’s an easy-to-use and flexible CMS for our clients. The plugin repository alone has over 50,000 plugins available. This makes it a very flexible and expandable product.

With that said, we don’t use WordPress theme’s. Our websites are 100% bespoke. They’re designed and coded from scratch. Although this requires extra work, it’s essential for building a quality website.

If you already have a website and need it updated, we can help with that too. We have an extensive background in WordPress development, which allows us to build upon an existing website. We can also provide WordPress maintenance, keeping your website updated and secure.

We’re based in North Sydney

All of our work is completed in our North Sydney studio. We’re a husband and wife team working with local business to build their online presence. We never outsource work overseas and we pride ourselves on making sure each website is custom designed and developed.
