“Adversity”: A difficult or unpleasant situation.
Chris’ definition of Adversity:
A Collingwood supporter living in Brisbane.

We’re a friendly bunch of peeps, why not get to know all of us?
How would you rate the quality of your finished project?
We’re absolutely thrilled with the site and the entire collaborative experience with Excite Media. In fact, I’ve been singing their praises whenever an opportunity presents itself.
How did you feel about working with the team at Excite Media?
Excite Media gave a professional front to my small business. They are the only organisation I know that actually deliver when they say they will.
Is there anything that Excite Media could have improved during your project?
To make cakes push through the screen every time I hit the home button. Other than that, nothing. Although, I have no doubt that if anybody could have made the cake thing happen, it would be Excite Media.

Case StudyOz Wardrobes
On the second of September this year, without most of the world knowing, one of the most significant threats to internet security was discovered. While business continued as most for most, the good folks over at Wordfence uncovered a major security flaw that had the potential to throw a significant portion of the internet into complete disarray.
Five days after the Wordfence security plugin identified the vulnerability, a solution was issued to tackle the problem immediately. By the 21st of September, threats were no longer present to sites and the investigation was concluded./p>
Only recently this information has been disclosed, but consumers want to know how they can protect themselves against a similar attack. Read the full article…
It’s a very rare person who would tell you that a slow website doesn’t grind their gears.
In fact, there is absolutely no one in the Excite Media Team who would happily twiddle their thumbs and watch wheels spin while a website loads. We live in a fast-paced world where we want things sooner rather than later. That’s why page speed is so critical to a good user experience (UX).
It doesn’t matter how great the content is, how flashy the graphics are, or even if you have an ace video playing – speed is key. Read the full article…
Learning our client’s business through complete immersion, Web Project Manager Polina, travelled to the Northern Territory
A couple of weeks ago I had the unique opportunity to steal away from my desk at Excite and head to the outback for one of my clients. I was invited by the Laynhapuy Homelands Aboriginal Corporation (Laynha) to visit a number of their remote sites in the Northern Territory. To say I jumped at the opportunity is a bit of an understatement!
The type of project Laynha had in mind posed some real challenges and understanding precisely how the group integrated with the local community was critical to fully comprehending what they were trying to achieve. Read the full article…
