Hi there!

I'm Helen

Code + design + creativity

I create websites

Hi there, I’m Helen Johnson and I create websites.

I live in Brisbane, Australia, with my office assistant, Chief Morale Officer and best furry friend Tessa (an Australian Cattle Dog or Blue Heeler).

After working as a web designer and developer for large businesses and startups for more than a decade, I decided to change direction and start my own business in order to help small businesses, entrepreneurs and creatives grow by launching beautiful, purposeful and strategic websites.

I like things to be beautiful, but to also have a purpose. There’s no point having a stunning website if it doesn’t actually convert.

I’m a Website Consultant and WordPress Specialist. So what does that actually mean?

It means that I can create more than just a website, but a whole website strategy for you and your business that covers design, technology, content and SEO. I love WordPress and believe it is usually the best tool, however I am more than happy to point you in the right direction if another tool would suit your business better.
