I'm Tobias - a freelance student focused on creative and innovative designs and digital identities.
planetOGLE is an established freelance web design, ecommerce and graphics design business, run by student designer Tobias Ogle, studying a Bachelor of IT at the University of Technology (Sydney). My first priority is to understand the needs and desires of my customers in order to send their business ideas light years ahead.
I specialise in creating professional and affordable web sites for small businesses – offering simple, yet effective and reliable solutions for your website needs in a timely manner. planetOGLE prides itself on customer satisfaction. I stick by the motto “the Customer is always right”, so if you think something is better another way, I will change it. You can be assured you are in thoughtful and experienced hands when dealing with planetOGLE.
My vision is to provide your company with an effective and reliable product, and I guarantee timely communication and excellent customer service.
My mission is to specialise in innovative and creative web, graphic and print designs for small businesses and not-for-profit organisations.
Formerly OGLEWebDesign, planetOGLE was rebranded in April 2009. The name planetOGLE comes from two places:
Firstly, my last name, Ogle.
Secondly the O.G.L.E. telescope in Chile (Optical Gravitational Lensing Experiment). This telescope has discovered 14 extra-solar earth-like planets in the past eight years. The most significant planet discovery was the OGLE-2005-BLG-390Lb – the planet that inspired my business name (see artist’s impression, right).

Tobias performed nothing short of a miracle when he revamped the website for Sponge Education in early 2016. Prior to this, I was floundering in admin and it was hard for me to keep up with the growth of Sponge. Then I found out about planetOGLE! During initial conversations about the website, Tobias took the time to explore everything that was proving problematic in the existing setup. His attention to detail was phenomenal, and as someone who pays attention to detail, I felt understood. No request was too small, and I really appreciated the time and effort Tobias put into answering my questions and making changes along the way. Tobias really does understand small business and the challenges it presents. He is a true professional, and an absolute pleasure to work with. He has completely transformed the online elements of Sponge Education, which has allowed me to focus my attention on making improvements in other areas of the business. I am so grateful for the work Tobias has put in, and I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking to improve the running of their business online. Get in touch with him – you won’t regret it!

I engaged Tobias, following a referral from a friend, to build and launch a website for my newly established small business in the fitness industry. While targeting a particular niche in the market (middle aged clients that would prefer a mature aged fitness trainer), I also wanted a broader market appeal.
Tobias has produced a website (and linked Facebook page) that is getting very positive feedback as to its professional look and user friendly functionality, on all devices. I am very pleased with the end result and definitely recommend a visit to planetOGLE for those wanting fresh ideas to initiate or enhance their online marketing presence.

Tobias Ogle as owner of ‘planetOGLE’ understands the importance of keeping his clientele up to date with their digital presence in the online environment. All business owners such as myself want to achieve this presence and do this with a minimum of fuss whilst keeping to budget in terms of expenditure and dates of completion.
Whilst Tobias invites his clients to be fully involved in designing the layout he is not afraid to step in and suggest perhaps a better way of achieving a positive outcome for the business owner. In dealing with Tobias I found him to be very approachable always contactable and from our first interaction by email his confidence was almost contagious, our business name and product was in the best of hands at all times. Tobias has given us a website to be proud of which not only looks great but is user friendly and has features that we had only dreamed of. As a first time user of ‘planetOGLE’ services I would not hesitate to use them again and suggest that other small business owners also look at ‘planetOGLE’ for their website creation services.

When I met Tobias and landed on planetOGLE, there was no turning back! He offered to work with me to achieve my goals the way we both thought best for my business. He often has made great suggestions for my site which we have implemented, saving me money, without compromising on quality! Tobias has been working with me for well over five years now and in that time I have sent emails & voice messages after hours which he promptly responds to – usually around 2am (I think he’s nocturnal) working hard at all hours of the night to complete the job. I have no hesitation in recommending Tobias – once you land on planetOGLE, you will be floating high knowing that your website is in good hands.

I was introduced to Tobias with the aim of building a fresh website in a traditional field. What I was most impressed with was his understanding of my intent and his willingness to provide great ideas that still aligned with my core objectives.
I am delighted with the outcome and the initial feedback from users has been universally positive.
I would highly recommend Tobias to anyone who is looking for modern design and who welcomes innovation – even if it is challenging.
Martin Mulcare, Politican, Better Bennelong Campaign
I have worked closely with Tobias the past couple of years and I have been impressed with what he was able to offer me.
Tobias has put together some great brochures, logo’s, posters, banners and the like.
planetOGLE will provide a website that is up to date with todays trends and he can almost do anything to your site.
Paula Barham, Founder, Wedding Inc
I have worked with Tobias from planetOGLE on a lot of projects recently and he has been an incredible help to my music and my personal brand.
PlanetOGLE really is light years ahead – the level of talent and brilliance in just one man is extraordinary! Tobias was able to complete my website to a world class standard at a very affordable price in such a short period of time.
I would (and do) recommend planetOGLE to anyone and everyone.
