I have been helping people realise their dreams and fulfil their ambitions online since 2005. I'm known for being open, honest, reliable and professional. The Internet to some can seem like a mystery. I can answer all your the questions and help you find out what it is you want even if your ideas aren't fully formulated yet. Trust me to turn even the dimmest glimmer of an idea into reality.
While some might focus on achieving maximum dollars for minimum effort, I believe delivering the right result is the main objective, and strive to understand your requirements and problems properly and supply a solution that works for you.
I use plain language that you can understand — no technical jargon — and I'm always available when you need me and won't keep you waiting for responses to your enquiries, guaranteeing same-day response times.
I'm based in The Gap, Brisbane, but have also worked with clients throughout Australia, the U.K., the U.S., Singapore, Norway, Lithuania and Portgual creating websites for sporting associations, real estate agents, health professionals, lawyers, community groups, church organisations and many more.
The perfect partner
With years' of experience in web standards-driven and accessible web design including content management systems (CMS) and ecommerce, I'm also the perfect web development partner for design and marketing agencies looking to complement their skills and services.
Well, that's a bit about me. Now it's your turn. Let me get to know you and how I can help.
I began work on my first website in 1998 but I've been pushing shapes, text and pictures around on computer screens with a mouse since the early ’90s.
I started my working life as a journalist and subeditor for regional newspapers in Western Australia but found I wasn’t very good at asking tough questions and so gradually became more involved in the design side of things doing A3 layouts on an Apple Classic with a massive 9” screen.
Fast forward a few years and I was working for national newspapers in the U.K. when I had the opportunity to join the team of the new sports website for The Daily Express in time for the 1998 World Cup. Long hours were worked followed by much hair-pulling and furniture kicking when Beckham was sent off after kicking Simeone and England went out in a penalty shootout.
The next few years saw me work for a variety of sporting websites, including the UEFA website for the 2000 European Football Championships in the Netherlands.
Since then I've (moved back to Australia and) worked as designer, developer, editor, project manager, copywriter, search engine optimiser, webmaster, general layout troubleshooter and developer with experience with a variety of CMSs including ExpressionEngine, Processwire, Craft, Statamic and Wordpress.
‘Tyssen’ is the name of a little street in Dalston, London that I used to live near for a few years while in the U.K. from 1995-2002. I always liked the name, and started using it as a forum handle in 1998 or 1999 and then it just kind of stuck.
This site is built to the latest web standards with and uses ExpressionEngine as its CMS.
This design is version 3 of the Tyssen Design website. Previous versions have been archived:
