Welcome to web-design.co.za! This website is dedicated to web design, with a focus on web design in South Africa.
This website's primary focus is to promote website designers in South Africa, whether by listing them on the web design companies page or by supplying web design awards for great web designs. We believe there are some really great South African web designers out there, and that if given the chance would pioneer in the web design industry.
If you are looking for a web designer, then see our web design companies page for a web directory of South African web design companies and freelance web designers in SA.
The web design directory features all different kinds of web designers, offering various quality and pricing. Whether you are looking for professional, unique website design,
website template mongers, opensource (Joomla, Wordpress, Drupal) developers, or even those specialising in psd to html conversion, you are sure to find what you are looking for.

Since we launched this website in early 2007, it has grown into the number one source for businesses to find South African web designers, so make sure your web design company is listed or risk losing all your web design business to your competitors who do have their website design companies listed.

On the web design award page, you will find the criteria by which we judge, and a form to submit your website for judging.

Some like to refer to it as 'Spec Work' (Speculative Work) and others refer to it as 'Hippy Jobs' (because you are doing it out of 'love', not for 'money'). At the end of the day, we designers need to make money to put food on the table, so it's important to learn where to draw the line..... read more >
