Oxide Interactive specialises in designing and developing large-scale Drupal websites with a focus on usability. We are familiar with, and expert at applying, web standards and at meeting Australian Government web publishing requirements. This means complying with the W3C’s Web Content accessibility Guidelines 2.0 and the requirements of the Australian Government Information Management Office.

Over our 8 years in business, we have designed or developed more than 90 websites for our large and growing public sector client base (including Environment and Water Resources, Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry, Defence and Australian Customs and Border Protection). With our Australian Government clients, we often work as part of their team, either designing and building sites from scratch or helping them refine or redevelop existing sites. We also help clients fix sites that are simply not working to best practice.

The quality of Oxide Interactive’s work, our ability to meet tight deadlines, provide rapid response service and high levels of customer satisfaction have led to long-standing relationships with many clients, including the National Library of Australia. We have worked with the library for more than five consecutive years and have recently completed three projects in parallel, including a large contract to create the Treasure Explorer website in Drupal, launched late 2011.

Founded in 2003, Oxide Interactive has built its reputation based on quality and cost-effective websites that work for users and produce results for clients. We do so on time, within budget and in line with best practice—always meeting, if not exceeding client satisfaction. We provide flexible and attentive client service and are 100% committed to ongoing, open and honest communication with those with whom we work. Our ability to exceed client expectations is also owed in part to our proactive approach to providing expert and accurate advice and assistance to clients.

This is a small, tightly knit, highly effective team that operates under a flat structure where communication flows freely, ensuring that nothing falls through the cracks. Clients deal directly with the owners and other staff direct—not through third-party account managers—which means more money on the project itself and less on administrative and hierarchy issues.
