We wanted to bring our website to the next level and started to look for the right person, someone familiar with the industry who would be willing to work with us.
Finding Transformation by Design all the way on the other side of the world was an act of Providence, to be sure, and the best thing that ever happened to our internet apostolate. It’s just so great to work with a designer and developer who is totally Catholic. His Faith really shines through his work.
Matthew assessed our website, evaluated its strengths and weaknesses, took into consideration what we wanted and went to work. He presented numerous ways to simplify maintenance, made suggestions to keep content fresh, and gave invaluable advice on how to attract more visitors. At the same time, he was always open to work with our design ideas.
As a result we now have three sites working in unison: the main site of our religious community, our school, and our online store, now working in conjunction with Facebook—all at one location. One of our sisters, after a little coaching from Matthew, is now able to handle all changes and continue its development.
If the proof is in the pudding, the proof for of a successful website for us has been the phenomenal increase in traffic and responses which continues to rise daily.
Matthew Price Design has been a pleasure to work with. Matthew listened to our dreams and transformed them into a beautiful, functional website. He provided prompt feedback and listened to help the website evolve. His vast experience in the joomla environment saw the integration of our aging websites into new unique websites with much more functionality.
The journey with Matthew has been exciting and we have witnessed an increase in traffic to our website and many more communities within our diocese actually using the website as a communication and showcase tool. Matthew has patiently trained our staff on the routine aspects of developing and uploading web content and his passion for this medium is inspiring us to explore our boundaries resulting in increased userbility of our website.
With bests wishes to you all.
Yours sincerely in Christ,
Bishop Les Tomlinson DD
Bishop of Sandhurst
Matthew has proved to be a most talented and creative Catholic layman regarding the use of the social media as a means for evangelization.
I have witnessed several times now how he is able to convert written material into attractive and “easy to read” formats in printed and/or electronic styles.
It helps to make the faith come alive using the new media now available.
I recommend him to you

Sincere thanks for all your help and professionalism Matt - I am delighted with Issue Five of the My Family, My Faith newsletter.
We literally couldn't have achieved this without you - your advice and input was invaluable.
So many many thanks Matt!

For over a decade, Matt worked for the Archdiocese of Melbourne’s Catholic Communications, which set the standard of Catholic web design in Australia. In content and design, Matt’s sites blew the competition away.
Matt left CathComm early in 2011, and his “solo career” is bearing fruit. The new seminary website is one of his, as is Sandhurst’s new website. Every designer has a trademark style. Matt’s, I think, is unique: his background wallpapers are usually a major design feature.
If you need a professional web designer, I recommend Matt Price. And that’s not just because he hosts my sites! Matt is consultative, his prices are competitive, and most importantly, his websites are excellent. Matthew Price: Transformation by design!
