Is your website responsive?

On April 21st 2015 Google began ranking mobile-friendly websites and Apps higher in search results than websites which are not.

Google’s statement: Starting April 21, we will be expanding our use of mobile-friendliness as a ranking signal. This change will affect mobile searches in all languages worldwide and will have a significant impact in our search results. Consequently, users will find it easier to get relevant, high quality search results that are optimized for their devices.

A responsive (mobile-friendly) website would have the following features:
• Is responsive to different screen sizes
• Properly configured
• Able to be viewed on multiple device types


If you are worried your website may not have these features there are many tools available on the web for you to check.
Google has a mobile friendly test, if you click the image below it will take you to the test.

Need a New Identity?

Fearnley Logo

Brangus Breeders from Western New South Wales Jayson & Jarni Fearnley of Fearnley Brangus came to us interested in a new logo.

Having had other logos designed in the past, Jayson & Jarni were interested in a more modern logo that represented them and their business more appropriately. The logo above was the resulting design. Clean lines and standout colours are always a good combination. Twitter 1

You can follow Fearnley Brangus on Facebook or Twitter.
Or check out their website, fearnleybrangus.com.au, soon to feature our new design.


AgGrow Field Days 2014


Catching up with clients and talking to new people in the Australian Agricultural Industry, AgGrow Field Days 2014 Emerald was a great few days for Rural Design Studio.

Lincoln & Lisa Job, Marellan Shorhorns, have recently moved from New South Wales to ‘East-End’ Emerald. Rural Design Studio in conjunction with KB Consulting designed two Pull-Up Banners and a Flyer for the Marellan Shorthorn site and the response they were getting from the public was impressive.
Offering Shorthorn & Shorthorn cross bulls for private sale as well as in the AgGrow 2014 Queensland Superior Beef Bull Sale Lincoln & Lisa already have a loyal customer base and are looking forward to promoting their breed more in Central Queensland.

Terry & Nikki Yates owner of renowned stallion Bluey Rey organised the CQ Colt Starting Challenge at AgGrow Field Days 2014. Rural Design have created two advertisements for Terry & Nikki in the past both to be used in various equine publications. They loved the designs so much that they used the designs for flyers and banners at the AgGrow Field Days.
The CQ Colt Starting Challenge Champion Scott Keogh of SK Horsemanship, Clifton, Queensland,  achieved an outstanding result in 7 1/2 hours of pure horsemanship.
The Bluey Rey Service Fee Auctioned and sold for $1425.00 to a purchaser from Clermont with proceeds donated by Terry & Nikki Yates to the Royal Flying Doctor Service. In the past two months Bluey Rey has raised $3000 for the Springsure State School and the RFDS.

We’re sure the organizers found AgGrow 2014 to be a successful event and are looking forward to seeing you next year.
