Gary Flack has always had a passion for computers. Various acquaintances continually asked “can you build a website for my business ?”. And so IT ZAP Website Design Works was formed on the 20th April 2008.
The very first computer I ever bought was a Commodore VIC 20 with cassette tape drive back in 1983. And that marked the beginning of an obsession to learn everything I could about computers, software and programming. Everywhere I have ever worked, computers were a vital part of the marketing, business administration systems, communications and the reporting. Always I looked for methods to customise, streamline and improve upon those systems to get the job done faster and better.
I operate IT ZAP Website Design Works from my home office which is dedicated to computer work of all descriptions. Here I have absolutely everything necessary; the very latest computer hardware and an extensive collection of the most modern (and best) software.
Web Design Software
Over the years I have tried numerous Ecommerce online store shopping cart software packages. Ecommerce Templates ticked all the boxes for me. One time payment for the software license, easy to use content management system, fast query response, dynamic search engine optimization code, highly adaptable to specific purposes and a full set of advanced features all there, ready to use, right out of the box ... far superior to free content management systems like WordPress and Joomla, often used by other web designers.
And for mobile friendly responsive design, now a seach engine ranking factor, ZURB Foundation with their mobile first design approach contains the very best collection of CSS media queries about.
The software I use to build website templates starts with the Adobe Creative Suite Master Collection, particularly Dreamweaver and Photoshop. Other software used in the build process includes Sublime Text 3, Ruby, Git, Node.js, SASS, Grunt, jQuery, Modernizr, Font Awesome and Magic Slideshow. Wow, compared to a few years ago, the way websites are built has totally changed !!
Graphics, video editing, sound editing, desktop publishing, HTML, CSS, PHP coding and search engine optimization are all specialties here ... everything involved in building fine websites.
Pricing for my website packages and services are clearly stated here, including detailed explanations about what is included, and what is not. There are no surprises, no hidden costs and no enquiry forms to fill in (unlike elsewhere) just to find out basic price information.
The Australian Web Hosting I recommend to you here are fast response, modern, state of the art web servers based in Victoria. NO really cheap oversubscribed website hosting with servers located on the other side of the world ... not here.

A website is your shop window, your online brochure, a reflection upon your professional business image, a way to attract potential new customers and clearly demonstrate that you do things far better than all the opposition.
IT ZAP is very much aware of that fact and guarantee to deliver a website that you will be proud of. And I will take great personal pride in the success of your website as well.
