I build websites where the interface doesn't get in the way of the main messages and content.

I'm also asked to develop branding for sites - see logos I have designed that feature a distinct dot.com falvour.

The sites are all managed using Textpattern, an open source (and free) platform that is easy to use and particularly good for buildign logical information architectures.

Sites I have built

  • Rome Rentals Co. website screenshot.

    Rome Rentals Co.

    Showcasing unique custom built pieces and homewares sources in Europe sold at their two shops in Melbourne.

Logos

I try to keep my logo designs simple, professional-looking and representative of the businesses values.

I don't have a background in print but I try to ensure that logos will work on printed material too.

Rome Rentals Co.
SEO was a decisive factor in determining the name of the website - Rome Rentals Co.The design needed to be formal, trustworthy but also somewhat light-hearted to represent the website's core offerings: quality vacation rentals, a service to match and experiencing Rome as a local

City Apartments logo
Ease-of-use of its booking system is one of the selling points of cityapartments.it. I designed the logo back in 2002 and business has since re-branded into Go2Rome.

City Guest House
CITYGUESTHOUSE is a low budget hotel in Rome located off the beaten track. For this reason it needs to stand our as a place that is friendly, colourful and has a 'personality' that sets it apart from typical hotels.

travgo logo
travgo is the company that built and manages cityapartments.it and Rome Rentals Co. Their products are websites and management systems behind them, but they also offer the experience of Italian cities such as Rome.

Tablet PC Italia logo
Tablet PC Italia has been talking about Tablet PC since 2003. The logo, quite expectedly, features a handwritten font.

Your Domain Is It

The idea behind *your.domain.is.it* (now offline) was to offer short URLs to sites hosted on free webspace providers. But only to websites of a certain quality... website domains that 'are it'.
