Foundation House worked with Dvize to set up a new website in WordPress. We found them to be a very straightforward, responsive agency who have the ability to simplify the complicated process of building a new website and train our in house team during the process.
Dvize are excellent project managers, and their progress meetings were a very important part of the process to ensure that the project was on track and deadlines did not slip. Their organized approach meant that our project was kept within budget and that we worked to our timeframes, and in turn we were able to meet our goals.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Dvize and the work that they do. They work to very high standards, have a frank approach and a highly skilled team.
I am totally thankful for you immediately giving me an easy-to-digest overview of available services, resources and options along with a range of fantastic recommendations.
I was thoroughly impressed by the almost immediate understanding of project requirements, next-level attention to detail and general intuitive and thoughtful approach to not only the project itself but, to the site we made (in record speed, mind you).
The intuitive and consistently can-do approach is very refreshing and so very rare in this world! Simplicity, creativity, resourcefulness and an earnest approach are what stood out for me, and a high-level of integrity and care for the work in general – absolutely no detail was left untouched and everything I wanted, you made happen. It’s rare to find any of those qualities in the industry so the combination of the above is a beautiful thing, and as a result, so is the website.
From a technical perspective it was future-proofed at every single level which adds another layer of amazingness – I can’t thank you enough for your help to overcome all obstacles and guiding and leading the way to make sure the site is fully measurable and all plugins integrated intelligently. The design, which can often make or break a project, is totally spot-on as well and was very quickly developed – a credit to your experience, knowledge of WordPress and the latest and greatest IA and industry practices.
Thanks very much to both Debbie, Glenn and the team, I hope to work with you again.
Glenn was fantastic totally revitalising our website with WordPress. Then he taught me how to manage ongoing content changes, despite my extreme hesitation and, um, discomfort at the very idea. Now I am so happy that I can nip in and add a little bit here, change something there. All without formality or didactic teaching, which wouldn’t have worked anyway.
Heartily recommend any class or instruction to anyone considering his trainings. And he’s such a nice guy too.
Margaret and myself are really pleased with the website. Other folks have said they like it too, so again thanks for your expertise.
The Australian Ballet engaged Glenn to develop the blog, behindballet.com. During the entire process we found Glenn to be helpful and mindful of our unique requirements, he answered our questions patiently and his suggestions helped improve the concept of the blog.
Glenn took proactive measures to enhance the functionality and aesthetic quality of the blog and we were impressed with his level of technical expertise, which he explained carefully and thoroughly. We are very happy with behindballet.com and would gladly recommend his services for any company that wants to promote it’s online presence.
Glenn has provided us with excellent service which is tailored to the needs of Arts Centre Melbourne. He redesigned The Famous Spiegel Season website to meet the specific needs of our organisation. The training provided was customised; providing the necessary skills and knowledge needed to foster independence over the website – one that is easy to manage and update.
It is reassuring to know that Glenn knows his work inside out and provides professional and personalised service that is simply a phone call or email away with a super-fast response rate, explained in an easy-to-understand manner. Thank you Glenn for your expertise and for creating a user-friendly website.
Dvize built a customised WordPress site for The Design Files, and managed the migration of an enormous archive of content across to the new site. It was huge task which Dvize completed at an extremely competitive rate.
It is invaluable knowing that you have one person who knows the project inside and out, and he’s only a phone call away with any questions / troubleshooting down the track. You wouldn’t get this level of personalised service from a larger company.
He was very good at communicating complex issues and developing a solution that draws on a wide variety of technical options.
It was brilliant to work with Glenn at dvize on the new Blue King Brown website, Glenn really opened my mind to understand the importance, relevance & overall concept behind building an effective website. Not only am really happy with the site, we’ve had some great feedback, it’s easy to operate, effective and very functional, but my understanding of the world wide web is now much more comprehensive as a result of my experience with dvize.
Glenn was involved in the early stages of our business establishment and was invaluable in the development of various company web sites and communication materials.
I found Glenn to be highly professional, reliable, honest and committed to achieving positive outcomes.
He was very good at communicating complex issues and developing a solution that draws on a wide variety of technical options.
As a small non-profit organisation, we needed a low-cost no-frills website on which to publish an educational resource. Glenn understood exactly what we needed and set about creating it. He worked above and beyond requirements particularly in negotiating with other IT professionals on our behalf. His patience with our shifting deadlines and changing requirements was stellar. Thanks to Glenn, we now have an excellent on-line resource that we know is contributing to improved circumstances for many in our community.
As a fledgling, small business owner I was looking for a web developer who could work with me to produce an affordable yet engaging and easily maintainable website. Glenn’s direct and professional approach was just what I was after. Sound, clear advice that made the decision-making easy; and a website that works beautifully and fits the brief perfectly.
Glenn has a unique skill-set that covers all bases and makes working with him a pleasure – up-to-date technical knowledge, a passion for social media strategy, a commitment to training, and a strong design background. Combine this with his amazing patience, support and willingness to share knowledge and you have a service that is second-to-none. Glenn’s commitment to various environmental and not-for-profit initiatives also speaks volumes about his principled approach to business and it was a delight to see this translated into his day-to-day working practices.
I recently worked with Glenn Todd from Dvize on the design of a new website for the International Ranger Federation. We are a small, not-for-profit, volunteer-based organisation. We had big ideas for our website and a small budget. Glenn worked above and beyond the requirements of our contract to help us to achieve our goals. Thanks to Glenn we now have a website that is fresh and functional and that we can easily manage and update ourselves.
Glenn also provided advice on our new domain name and our hosting options – all of which we found very useful and acted on. He also ensured a smooth transition from our old website to the new one.
I found Glenn to be highly professional, patient and incredibly helpful, passionate and enthusiastic.
Dvize designed a website that meets our needs as an international organization. They have built scalability for mobile devices into the theme, which is critical for us so staff working in remote areas all over the world can access it. Not only does the site look great, it has been easy for us to maintain. Glenn’s service has been stellar in helping us tweak things to make sure it’s all running as we’d like, and he’s gone above and beyond in dealing with our previous hosts and domain name providers. The fact that Dvize supports environmental causes has also been a big factor for us.
Dvize worked with us to rebuild our site ACTU Worksite for Schools, helping us to convert from a clunky custom CMS to WordPress. Their focus on collaboration and training us meant we could pick and choose the parts we could work on ourselves and get Glenn on board to code the tricky stuff. We are very happy with the final product, and have received positive feedback from the teachers that use the site.
Dvize helped us realise our vision to improve the functionality and design of our existing website. Working with Dvize was a true collaborative process and our staff were trained in the fundamental concepts of WordPress throughout the journey. This created real value for our network – and our staff – as we now have the internal capacity to manage everyday aspects of the website. Dvize also provided useful suggestions and insights to bolster our communication strategy and as a result, our network members are more engaged with our online tools and resources.
Dvize’s upfront and frank communication approach meant that we knew what was possible within our budget and timeframes and we were able to prioritise goals to meet important milestones.
I recommend Dvize for WordPress support, training and development, they are a collaborative, supportive and skilled team.
Dvize were fantastic in helping CLIMARTE create our WordPress based website. From understanding our needs, suggesting useful strategies and implementing the whole package, Glenn and Debbie had the knowledge and patience to deal with our non-technical minds and deliver a site that did just what we wanted.
Thank you again for your time and commitment to not only building the Life StyleLists website, but providing valued assistance after launch.
Feedback on the site so far has been wonderful, and many of your suggested additions have been easily implemented since going live as the WordPress templates have been extremely easy to navigate.
I’m extremely grateful for you guiding me through such an exciting but daunting period and will most certainly be contacting you again in the near future to add e-commerce!
Dvize were recommended to us by an industry leading consultant and for good reason. Glenn and the team did an amazing job of building a website that was dynamic, manageable and reflected our brand well. The team worked closely with us throughout the entire process to ensure that our needs were met. We would definitely recommend Dvize for any future website projects.
Dvize were incredibly easy to work with. Their turnaround time was fantastic as they kept the whole process lean and met our needs precisely. They also offered strategic advice where they felt the approach could be enhanced which added great value to the end product. We would definitely recommend working with Dvize.
Glenn Produced a website for Moull Murray Architects which presented the designs of the company in a client focussed way, and which projected the ethic and professionalism of the firm. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to employ a highly competent, graphically astute web designer.
Glenn is a reliable, creative and consistent professional. He has a great deal of experience in all things web design and has a really approachable and friendly demeanour. He answered all my questions, made great suggestions and despite working exclusively through emails and Skype helped create a wonderful product. I can’t recommend him enough.
Glenn took our organisation from a well intentioned, work-outcome driven group to an organisation with a professional and leading presence that is felt and that cuts through in advancing the prospects for renewable energy generation and decarbonisation of the transport sector.
Glenn has worked on various apects of our communications strategy. He assisted us with our branding policy, allowing our organisation to focus our messaging in a clear and professional way.
Basically Glenn had the answers. He was analytical and could understand exactly what we were trying to achieve, and then he put his expertise to make us achieve easier and faster.
As well as on the Strategic level, Glenn has also supplied production services, such as producing our most important project to date, our 100% Renewable Energy plan. Glenn has influenced our work with a corporate branding style that fits in with all sectors and creates the space for the major policy shift and infrastructure spending we are looking for.
Glenn is an expert in his field. Working with Glenn has been an outright pleasure and we will always seek to hire Glenn again as our first port of call.
Glenn was superb to work with, right from the early concept stage which was basically a meeting in a pub telling him our very high level ideas – to finally deployment of our fully functioning WordPress internet site (with full online video functionality)
The whole process of taking myself and my business partner along the journey of what Glenn was intending to build was brilliant, so we could see for ourselves how the final site would look and function.
Lastly, Glenn’s rates were very reasonable considering the quality of the work performed and the timeliness of when it was delivered.
Glenn was superb to work with, right from the start, he had given me so many useful strategic ideas on how to reshape our website, our brand look and to build a community for our customers. The shopping cart software we are using is new to him too, but he mastered it in such a short time and customized it so beautifully for me that we had been show cased as a live store example which bring my website huge traffic.
Glenn is not only very creative in web designer, he is also an expert in online marketing, the strategy he implemented for our website worked so well that it doubled our traffic within 1 week.
Lastly, Glenn’s rates were very reasonable considering the quality of the work performed and the timeliness of when it was delivered. And all the useful suggestions and technique he taught me are priceless!
Working with Glenn has been an outright pleasure and i will keep on working with him on other new projects and recommend him to everyone i know!

Glenn has a natural understanding of client’s wants and needs. As a client you always know what you want as an overall finished product, but are less aware of the individual components required to reach that goal, or which areas should be areas of critical focus.
In this regard Glenn bought great clarity to our overall impact including ensuring our website was built with both traffic and functionality in mind.
His extensive industry knowledge built upon his own creative nature and design background guarantees a unique approach that cannot be easily replicated.
As clients we were delighted with the end result of our project and are extremely grateful for Glenn’s professional nature and transparent method of working and innate integrity.
Environmental Earth Sciences International engaged Glenn to redevelop our group of websites into two functional and efficient sites. He worked very closely with us from the early development and planning stages right through to sending the sites live to make sure that all of our objectives were achieved. Glenn always took the time to talk through any design or technical issues including offering training so we can manage the sites ourselves.
Glenn responded very quickly to our timelines throughout the projects and ensured that the websites were delivered in line with our schedule and budget. His approach was consistently professional and was always willing to offer help and advice. I would be more than happy to work with Glenn on future projects and would recommend Dvize to anyone looking for a creative new website.
If you want to gain capacity to manage a website – confidently, with clarity of purpose and the right level of skill – and keep up a passion for your site – hire Glenn Todd. How does he work wit his clients? Strategically and patiently, delivering milestones right on time.
After talking to many web designers, we had no hesitation in choosing Glenn above the rest. It was clear from the beginning that Glenn understood the ethos of our work, and how to build a site for our needs and our audience. Glenn ran trainings for our staff to build their skills to autonomously manage our website. This was important to us given we are a cash and time-strapped NGO and often need to update information from day to day.
Glenn worked us through design, best practice, taxonomy, uploading, backing up and content management and provided excellent advice on the accessibility of our site. Glenn is approachable, adaptable and speaks our language. Glenn also provided excellent advice on what to look for in a host, and on all the extras.
The Victorian Refugee Health Network recommends the work of Dvize to anyone who is looking for smart designers to build a smart website; and recommends Glenn to anyone who is looking for a designer that understands the heart and soul of what you do.
Thanks Glenn for your help with my my website. And thanks for encouraging me to learn some of those technical things I didn’t want to learn! It’s great to know I can contact you when I next need help
We used Dvize Creative for the design of our website and loved dealing with Debbie and Glenn. They accommodated us and put up with our incessant questions and some indecision.
When we changed direction they were willing to go with our new ideas so that the end result was exactly what we wanted.
They listened to our brief and we now have a real estate website that does not look like your usual stock standard, boring real estate website.
