About Sageold Web Design

Sageold Web Design is a branch of Sage Old Books, a family partnership owned and operated by Ian and Lorraine Bates in the Sunshine Coast hinterland, Southeast Queensland.

Before becoming a book restorer, Ian was an IT manager for eleven years and it was with this background that he built our original web site.

In response to several requests for help with repairing or building business web sites, Ian has now refreshed his IT skills and begun commercial web site design and repair under the Sageold Web Design banner.

Our specialty

Repairing broken web sites - Good validated code is essential for a web site to be successful. No matter how pretty it might look, if the code is sloppy the site will not be attractive to search engines and will not rank highly in searches. Ian is adamant that code must pass validation tests before being accepted. Much of his web design work has come as a result of the need to re-code faulty web pages which simply did not work.

Whether you have a web site already and you think it needs improvement, or you want to start one from scratch, we can help you."
