About Us

The small husband & wife team serving small businesses

Learn how we transformed our business from being built with the goal of serving big businesses, to the business we are today: working solely with small businesses.

Our story

Everyone has a story, here's ours

Our business was born back in 2018, but it was during the pandemic of 2020 that our business really transformed into the one it is today. 

We originally started our business with the goal of wanting to work with big brands, just as any web designer and developer would, but 2020 changed that for us... During what was one of the worst years of ours, and everyone else’s lives, we realised how important and special small businesses are, and whilst everyone began looking for ways to support them - so did we. 

We changed our goals, our services, and our target audience in the effort to help bring small businesses to the online world, to a place where they didn’t need to rely on a physical store, business front, or selling platform, but instead rely on their very own website and online presence.

Since that moment we have worked solely with small businesses, because we believe they are the heart and soul of our communities, and we get such joy in being part of their journey to success - and hopefully yours too.

our client testimonials

Building trust, one website at a time

Searching for the right web designer and developer is a process, and reviewing client feedback is an essential part of that process. We’ve worked with a range of amazing clients, all with different goals and dreams... here are some of their testimonials.

"Alex and Jess are quite literally the dream team. As a brand new small business owner, life can be overwhelming, and whilst there are a lot of things I can muddle through with on my own, they helped me with patience, empathy and professionalism. I wouldn't hesitate the recommend this duo for all your web design/development and online store needs."
