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 partner Matt and two blue Australian Cattle Dogs Tessa and Dash. Tessa is my office assistant, Chief Morale Officer and best furry friend. Dash is the newest addition to the team, and is currently taking on the role of Chief Mischief Officer and provider of puppy cuddles.

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 create more than just a website, I create 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.
