Virtual Creations - Who We Are

Virtual Creations, based in Sydney, Australia, is in the business of developing powerful websites for small-to-medium organisations.

Our People

Mark Virtue, founder of Virtual CreationsVirtual Creations was founded in 1994 by Mark Virtue (right).  Mark's background is in programming and software development, and he brings this highly technical experience and expertise to the business of developing websites.

Mark has always seen the Internet as a fascinating medium for the exchange of ideas and information, and soon decided to focus his technical creativity into the development of websites that are - like all good software - highly functional and useful for their owners.

To this end he spent many months developing virtualCMS, a powerful and unique Content-Management System (software to allow a website's owner to maintain their own website content).  This software was developed in such a way as to be suitable for deployment in any type of website, from singing groups to real estate agents.

Our business has grown, and Virtual Creations now employs two developers/support personnel - Garth Renwick and Qamal Kosim-Satyaputra - and a marketing specialist - Adria Ellis.

Our Philosophy

The central philosophy of Virtual Creations remains clear:

Facilitate communication - Make it easy for people to say what they want to say.
 
Virtual Creations uses the communications medium of the World Wide Web to implement this philosophy, and specialises in developing websites in such a way that a website's owner, along with their employees, members, customers and suppliers, can all communicate effortlessly, efficiently and effectively.

This philosohy seems to be working.  Virtual Creations has now developed over 70 websites for a wide variety of organisations, both in Australia and North America - many of these using virtualCMS.

Personal Service

Our experience has told us that most people have little or no idea about the steps involved in developing and maintaining a website.  Common questions include:
  • What's a domain name and how do I register one?
  • What's hosting for?
  • How do I build a website?
  • How do I make it look nice?
  • Can I maintain it myself?
  • How do I get it listed on Google?
We spend the time to talk with you about your needsFortunately, we're really good at all that stuff.  We don't want you to have to bother with it.  You tell us what you want, and we'll do it.  This is what we mean by "personal service"!
  • We sit down with you and have a chat about exactly what you want from your website.
  • We talk about how your business currently works, and how it could work better if you had a really powerful website.
  • We go away and handle it all for you - giving you the best website available.
The only part we don't do is maintain the website's content for you (the words and images on the pages, the contents of your product catalog, your event calendar, etc).  We've found that most people would rather do that themselves instead of pay us to do it (as long as it's easy to do!).  Why would anyone want to pay us website-development rates to fix a spelling mistake?  (e.g. "Paragraph 3 on the Contact Us page has got a misspelled word.")

That's the beauty of virtualCMS, our content-management system.  The website owner can do it all themselves, saving them time and money.
