I design marketing-focused websites for Australian small businesses and startups


My name is Saku and I’m a freelance web designer in Melbourne. I help startups and small businesses elevate their online presence by creating stunning websites that deliver results.

I’m also an experienced marketer and the websites I design are aligned with the marketing goals and objectives of your business.

A good website demands balance. On the one side, you have creativity and design. On the other side, you have the research and strategy that consists of data, analytics, user experience, and numbers.

And the good news is, you CAN and you SHOULD get both..

I believe in quality and that every business is unique. I take time to get to know your business, your customers and your business objectives and goals and finally – design and develop a website that has your business’ unique needs in mind and resonates with your target audience.

When a cheesy template doesn’t cut it. (It never does.)

What you'll get:

As a freelance website designer, you’ll deal with me directly from the initial enquiry through the web design process all the way to the handover of the website. With me, you’ll get:

  • A stunning website that is built based on crystal clear marketing strategy so that your website not just looks good but is aligned with your business goals
  • An accountable partner who doesn’t try to fit your requirements to their services but takes the time to understand your business and creates a digital solution that is tailored to your business’ requirements 
  • Continuous marketing support and honest, straight-forward answers to any marketing / website related questions even after the website is delivered
  • A team member you can bounce ideas off
  • A website designer who is fast and agile (unlike agencies where it takes forever to be on the same page because there are too many people involved)
  • Transparent, personal service

With over 3 years of experience as a Melbourne-based freelance website designer, I’ve gained a lot of experience about website design and development. The truth is that most of the websites don’t really perform as they should. Even if they look visually “ok”, they may fail to:
