Pineapple Planet Testimonials

We have a varied client base, there is a reason for that, we are not 'pigeon holed' into a specific market sector, which means we can create for any business or organisation.

The underlying fact is our clients love us, the testimonials show that.

Sharee Viereck - Deputy Principal
South Halls Head Primary School

I cannot speak highly enough of Ian and the team at Pineapple Planet. We were completely let down by our previous designer who was tasked with re-invigorating our school site, with little to no contact in over five months, despite our best efforts to engage them. I desperately reached out to Ian at Pineapple Planet early Term Four, in the hope of possibly having something up and running before the end of the school year. Our design ideas changed several times in the coming weeks, yet Ian and the team took it all in their stride, happy to accommodate the requested changes to ensure our new website reflected our school community. Our staff, students, and parents love the new user-friendly design. It is more interactive, easier to navigate, and provides purposeful information for our families and the wider community.

The service and support we received from Ian and the team at Pineapple Planet was outstanding. Their knowledge, experience, and service exceeded our expectations, and enabled us to launch our new website before the end of the school year. I highly recommend Pineapple Planet for any school or business looking to enhance their brand profile, and look forward to working with them again in the future.


Rebecca Hunt
Associate Principal. School of Educational Needs : Sensory

Pineapple Planet enabled the School of Special Educational Needs: Sensory to realise an engaging website that celebrates our school, meets the needs of our varied stakeholders, provides resources to build capability of parents, carers, schools and educators, while enhancing accessibility and usability. It was essential that our website capture the diversity of our specialist state-wide school, including the history of when the two schools amalgamated in 2013.

Pineapple Planet’s professionalism, responsiveness, competitive quoting and enthusiasm were greatly appreciated by our school community.


Devlin Bose - Multicultural Services Centre

I have collaborated with Ian Prothero of Pineapple Panet to prepare our Annual Reports for 2021, 2022 and 2023 and our 40th anniversary souvenir publication. The design and layout work has earned praises from many. Ian has been a great help in lifting the quality of our publications. He has always exhibited a high level of patience and professionalism and is a very good person to work with. I would recommend Pineapple Planet for any work that they would agree to undertake knowing that the abovementioned attributes will be applied by them to delivering a result that one can be proud of.

Ian and the Pineapple Planet team have been a pleasure to deal with.

They simplified our newsletter process and saved us a tremendous amount of time.

In developing the site and branding for the school, Ian and his team have been helpful, and very prompt, nothing was too much trouble.

It has grounded our identity in a way that invites individual reflection and demonstrates our commitment to supporting young people. We highly recommend their professional, responsive and competitive branding and marketing solutions.


Mr. Jonas Byford - Principal, East Beechboro Primary School

At East Beechboro Primary School, we were in the position of having to seek the assistance of another website provider due to our existing site no longer being supported.

Ian was great to work with and made the whole process simple. The communication was outstanding and nothing was ever too much trouble. Ian and his team at Pineapple Planet created a fantastic, contemporary and user-friendly website for our school which has also streamlined our communications with parents.

The final product is a true reflection of our school, our culture, our beliefs and our community.  We are extremely happy with our new website and are very grateful to Ian and his team for their hard work and assistance. We would highly recommend Pineapple Planet to others.

Rebekah Little – Director – APEX Family Lawyers & Mediators

Last year I decided to branch out opening my own family law firm it was exciting and a little bit scary at the same time, so much to do, and lots of new areas to deal with, including setting up a website to attract business.  After paying a considerable amount of money for a new website I felt let down by the original website company, no communication at times, no guidance, and generally a struggle to get moving forward.  When the website was set up we were disappointed with the results we were getting, the website was slow,  not very appealing, and not fulfilling the brief and assurances given.

So when Pineapple Planet were recommended to me I was initially sceptical, however, I needn’t have been.  Ian and the team have guided us through each step of the way, they were  not only prompt and efficient, but Ian had so many innovative ideas on how to promote our business across all forms of media.  I felt that Pineapple Plant  really cared about our business, the communication between ourselves was excellent, and the advice given by Ian was invaluable, he really knows his industry and how to get the best results for his clients.  I would have no hesitation in recommending Pineapple Planet for anyone’s website and marketing solutions.

Our  website now looks amazing, fast to load, professional and easier to navigate, we  are already seeing results with new clients, and a good rating on Google.   The new website reflects who we are as a business, and it is easy to maintain and manage.  I look forward to Ian’s continued support and a long and fruitful relationship with Pineapple Planet.


Casey Emory – Director – Big Island Charters – Tourism

If you are looking to take your company to the next level I highly recommend the team at Pineapple Planet! They have been amazing through the whole process of making our new web site and molding our company into a brand.

These guys are branding geniuses! going above and beyond to make our company stand out in our industry. We originally engaged Pineapple Planet to create out new website, not only did they do that but also gave us invaluable advise on how to make our business stand out from all the other charter boat companies in Perth. I can honestly say that our business has doubled since we have had Pineapple Planet helping us build our business in what is a VERY competitive industry in Perth.

We went from an old website not being found in Google searches for anything! To a new website on page one in a matter of weeks for all of our charters. Pineapple Planet have also refined everything from the logo to information sheets and streamlining our business with automated replies via e-campaigns from our website, our business now flows and looks fantastic!

Our bookings have more than doubled from last year and all coming through our website, via a web enquiry or direct phone call from the website.

Pineapple Planet is an investment for your company, you should listen to them and act on what they suggest. From now on we will not make ANY marketing decision without calling Pineapple Planet first. We will be continuing to use them for all of our marketing, branding and web site needs.


Kevin Bailey, Chairman & Chief Executive Bluesun Travel

Pineapple Planet have been an integral part of BlueSun’s life, growth and success for over a decade.

Since 2006, Ian has steered our vision watching us grow from a seed of thought to where we are now. From a local, to a regional, national and now to an award-nominated international entity with four divisions.

I rarely, if ever give testimonials but I will say this: I will not do any campaign without his consultation. I will not do any marketing material….without his oversight and input.

Pineapple Planet is not just a think-tank, but a highly progressive and professional entity that is on the cutting edge of branding, creativity, technology and strategic planning. I have worked with a lot of companies that purport to know about marketing, but none have surpassed what Pineapple is capable of doing. Their work is truly clever and translates into dollars.

My advice with Pineapple Planet is simple: listen, learn and earn.


Chris Michaelides, General Manager Crazy Dragon – My Crazy Auntie’s Food Pty Ltd

Crazy Dragon began working with Pineapple Planet with the launch of ten new products into Coles, Woolworths and other major supermarkets in Australia. We also decided to use this opportunity to rebrand our Crazy Dragon image at the same time.

This was a major project which incorporated the redesign of our packaging designs across our existing 7 products as well as the new products to be re-launched into major supermarkets with a short timeframe.

We had a one month window to get the packaging phase completed, and another couple of months to implement the website and social media. I am happy to report that working with Pineapple Planet was probably the only way we would have got this project done in that timeframe, especially given the level of quality we achieved. Deadlines were on time and in fact more responsive than we were reactive.

The amount of information that was shared between our organisations during the creation of the packaging and other media formats was huge! Pineapple Planet were able to manage the iterative process in a way that gave us comfort that no details would fall through the cracks. Pineapple Planet delivered a great-looking result which has translated across our entire NEW brand. They also worked diligently and remotely with our other packaging and IT suppliers to ensure that the end result was met for future prospects.

Additionally, we created a new mobile friendly website optimised for SEO, and an all-encompassing marketing plan, including social media and QR code integration on our packaging that would speak to our website and deliver rich media content to our customers.

We now consider Pineapple Planet to be a strategic partner, and they value-add their services in ways that we never see coming.

They are creative thinkers who look at the whole picture and not just at the task at hand. They consider every aspect of your marketing channels then integrate them. Crazy Dragon would thoroughly recommend you speak to Pineapple Planet.


Kerry Skillen - Deputy Principal North Balga Primary School

North Balga Primary School needed an upgrade of our old website. Our vision was to create a website that promoted our diverse school community and the many programs and external services that make our school so unique. We also needed a platform to communicate to parents of upcoming news and events.

It was essential that our website captured children from many different cultures and backgrounds that attend our school and we wanted this enriching school experience to be captured in the photos. Our whole school community is very pleased and proud of the outcome.

At all stages there was outstanding communication and support. Ian was always only a quick email or phone call away to answer any questions or to give advice.

The whole process has been very positive and I would recommend Pineapple Planet to any school or business.


Louise Armstrong - Principal, Lesmurdie Primary School

On behalf of the school community, I would like to thank Pineapple Planet for our wonderful new website. We now have a visually appealing, clean, easy to navigate site enabling us to communicate effectively with our target audience. The engaging images of the students which Ian captured, effectively showcase our positive school environment. In developing the site, Ian was, at all times, helpful, responsive and accommodating of our wishes whilst guiding us to the best possible product.

The site is mobile friendly and readily accessible across a range of devices, allowing visitors easy access to the most important and up to date information first. We now have the ability to provide parents with regular updates and the latest news, improving school to home communications.

We are looking forward to working with Ian to explore opportunities to further develop and communicate our brand within the community.


Justin Grasso - Principal, Boyanup Primary School

We have developed a great partnership with Pineapple Planet and their dedication to our website is evident in all aspects of the site. We appreciate their attention to detail and creative approach to bringing our school brand to life online. Their level of professionalism, skill and prompt response to our requests is second to none. Thank you Ian and your team for your support in marketing our school as a leader in education.


Liz Ford, Principal – Hillcrest Primary School – Education

Hillcrest  Primary School became an Independent Public School in 2020, and the school and Board took this as an opportunity to rebrand, including a new logo, website and stationery.

Ian and his team were patient with our initial communications and supported us throughout the journey with steps in the process that enabled us to refine and develop the brand that best reflected us as a community.

The logo creation process was highly consultative and lots of options and ideas were shared. During our consultation with the Board and wider community, Ian was able to present alternative ideas and expand on their suggestions to finish with a logo that is truly reflective of Hillcrest Primary School.

Working with Pineapple Planet on the recreation of our website was seamless. The level of service was beyond what we had anticipated and it was completed in a timeframe that surpassed expectations. Ian’s professionalism, experience and creativity is a testament to Pineapple Planet.

I would recommend his services to anyone looking for quality, a high level of customer service and a product that supports a timeless vision. Thank you Ian for all your work and support.


The team at Banksia Montessori School

The level of commitment from Pineapple Planet, was obvious from the first meeting.

Ian helped us to define our brand. He spent time asking questions to articulate the image we wanted to project.

The team worked swiftly in every aspect and the dummy website feature gave us the opportunity to view the site as a potential client before it went live, allowing us to see where changes might be required. His team worked diligently on our new website and were extremely patient with every request or change of mind on our part, no questions asked.

Ian was open and willing to provide advice upon request. He and his team ensured we were happy with every step of the way and went above and beyond to accommodate our needs. They were efficient and delivered exactly what they promised.

We are so pleased with our new website and would highly recommend Pineapple Planet to anyone wanting to develop or freshen their brand.

Thank you, Pineapple Planet.

From the team at Banksia Montessori School, Dianella


Mrs. Anika Blackmore, Founding Principal – Brabham Primary School – Education

When establishing a new school we have worked closely with Pineapple Planet to ensure that we are creating a vision and image that is reflective of the needs of our community.

After working with the Leadership Team to understand the school’s context and determine our needs, the team provided a comprehensive branding and marketing strategy to guide us in our initial year of establishment.

Part of this customised support included the creation of an innovative and user-friendly website that has been essential in promoting our school to prospective families.

During the creation of our logo, Ian provided expert advice and ongoing support, which enabled us to transform our community aspirations into a logo that our students, staff and families can be proud of.

This is the third time I have worked with Pineapple Planet on a project and they continue to deliver a creative service that is highly responsive to our needs. I highly recommend the team at Pineapple Planet!

I am delighted to provide a testimonial for Pineapple Planet. For over 14 years we have worked on every form of marketing – from print to digital, large scale to small – including brochures, websites and e-newsletters in my role at Liz Davenport (Fashion).

Carolyn Nunn, Principal, Parkerville Independent Public School

We embarked on a journey of rebranding our school and sought the services of Ian at Pineapple Planet as they were recommended to us by other principals.

Pineapple Planet worked closely with the school administration to get an idea of the culture of our school, our values and our mission and presented us with a number of alternatives that really embraced who we are and what we stand for.

The end result was a new brand and supporting documentation that really reflected the school ethos and culture.

We also worked with Pineapple Planet to build a new website that is now a real feature of our communication with our community. Pineapple Planet did all of the photography and worked patiently with us to build the content.

I have recommended Pineapple Planet to other principals as the process is clear, easy and professional and, at the conclusion, you have a product that reflects your school and community

We had a clear vision of what we wanted and Pineapple Planet was able to turn that into a reality.  At all stages there was outstanding communication and support.  I am actually amazed at things I thought would be long term goals which were possible in a shorter time frame.  Support at every stage from planning, drafting and photography to after care when we went live was exceptional.

Ray Boyd, Principal, West Beechboro Primary School

West Beechboro Primary School was looking to improve its public communications platform and overall global image in terms of an internet presence as our previous website design had fallen well short of our expectations and its promised delivered outcomes. In sourcing Pineapple Planet and working closely with Ian and his team we were more than impressed with their professionalism and overall end product. Our school website is both functional and vibrant, but more importantly it is easy for us to manage and incorporates our social media platforms.

Pineapple Planet supported us the entire way and in doing so delivered on everything they had stated they would relative to timelines and the end product. We could not be happier with the final product, which our parent community is already making positive comments about. I have no hesitation in recommending Pineapple Planet to any of my colleagues as I know that they will be as impressed with their web design and brochure design as we are.

It is visually appealing , easy to navigate and provides our parents with a streamlined communication tool for accessing information about the school.   Ian was great to work with.  He kept us on track in providing all the information needed  to build the website and responded promptly with any requests we had.  I highly recommend Pineapple Planet as a creative, responsive company who seek to understand the client’s needs.
