About Us

We build Forever Sites.

Sure, anyone can make a decent-looking website – but ours are so much more than just a pretty face. We make scalable, functional sites that can grow as your organisation does and do everything you need them to do and then some.

We love helping organisations grow and achieve their objectives by delighting their customers and stakeholders through great user experiences and measured outcomes.

Choose your adventure...

Jo Minney

Digital Happiness Manager

Hi! I’m Jo, founder of House Digital.

Under the purple hair and bright (often cat-themed) outfits, I’m a tech-nerd to the core. My years in software development taught me how to translate between developers and users to ensure that the final product worked, looked amazing and importantly, delivered in all the areas the client actually needed it to.

Now with House Digital, I get to take all the “techy stuff” I love so much, like design, strategy, data, creativity, customer-psychology and user-experience, and work my magic to create killer websites. 

Outside of my (mostly) digital world, I’ll be smothering my cat with love, adding to my collection of Christmas paraphernalia, travelling around the globe on “business trips” and volunteering for causes I care about.

Liz

Team Coordinator
Responsible for making sure all the cogs in the House Digital machine run smoothly, Liz’s superpower is being the most organised person in the world. She manages the timeline & task assignment of all of our team members to ensure that projects stay on track. She also manages many of our internal & customer facing processes, such as content collection & actioning feedback from our weekly project meetings and acceptance testing of designs & development.

Ross

Technical Director
Founder of our partner company Devhouse, Ross is an experienced PHP developer & software solutions architect. With the help of his experienced and talented team Ross manages the back-end development of custom plugins, API integration and web services that give House Digital a leading edge.

JR

Programmer
High functioning websites usually require custom coding – whether it’s creating an interactive map or making sure the right posts show on the right pages. JR is our code monkey extraordinaire and can do things with JavaScript and PHP that most of us can only dream about. He also manages our support queue, and keeps all of our existing client sites working smoothly.

Lovely

Junior Developer
Often the most time consuming part of a project is taking a design & content and turning it into a website – which is where Lovely comes in! She helps take the vision and turn it into a reality, using best practice WordPress development. Lovely is also responsible for the first round of responsiveness and compatibility testing and works closely with our designer to bring their vision to life.

You?

Designer [+]
We’re looking for a creative, curious and energetic designer to join our team. If you have crazy good design skills and experience using Adobe XD (or similar products and a willingness to learn) please get in touch!

The Un-Agency Philosophy 🙂

Agencies... Kind of Suck.

When Jo first started House Digital, she felt a lot of pressure to know (and do) everything. Unfortunately she soon discovered that you can either do a few things well, or a lot of things with mediocrity. 

We decided to take the high road, and embraced what we call the ‘un-agency philosophy.’ That’s why we focus on what we’re best at, which is building REALLY GOOD WEBSITES.

To make sure that we can still help our clients achieve their goals, we’ve built long-term, strategic partnerships with a range of other small business in the creative and technology space. We’re proud to call these amazing businesses & individuals partners!

Together with her sidekick Chris, Juli helps our clients develop their brand strategy – from logos to product design, they deliver kick ass graphic design (plus super cool VR & AR immersive brand experiences!)

Olivia @ Silver Key Films

Videography
Did you know you’re 53 times more likely to show up first on google if you have a video on your website? Fortunately Olivia and her sidekick Dee make the best videos, with exceptional attention to detail.

Kyle @ Soul Gazing Photography

Photography
Kyle is amazing at capturing the essence and soul of any shoot – whether it’s a portrait or a beautiful product that needs to convey a certain feeling or energy, he is the ultimate visual storyteller.

Karen @ Blue Cherry Online Marketing

SEO & Google Ads
Karen has been working in digital marketing for longer than most of us have been using the internet. Keeping up with Google is a hectic game, but we trust the team at Blue Cherry to hit our client’s goals!

Cindy @ Hats Off Copywriting

Copywriting
Cindy from Hats Off Copywriting believes that business owners wear too many hats. We tend to agree, which is why we’ve partnered with Cindy to take care of all things wordy for our clients.

David @ IT House

IT Support
Who’s got time for troubleshooting IT problems? David and the team at IT House, that’s who! From servers to email and everything in between, our sister business has all things IT covered.

Ross @ Devhouse

Software Development
Ross and his team create custom cloud software solutions for businesses and organisations because he believes that business operations shouldn’t be limited by off-the-shelf software options.

Giving Feels Good!

Community Impact

Our team are committed to giving back to the community in whatever way we can. Below are a few of the initiatives we are actively involved in.

Women in
Tech[+] WA

We were excited to sponsor the 2020 WiTWA Conference and Awards. Only 28% of the Australian IT workforce is female and WiTWA leads the way in advocating for and introducing women into STEM roles.

Do_Action()
Charity Hackathon

In January 2020, House Digital sponsored, and our team participated in, Perth’s first do_action() Charity Hackathon – organised by our founder. Over the course of a day, 80 volunteers gathered to help create websites for 8 deserving non-profit organisations.

She Codes
Australia

We have been supporters of She Codes since back when they were Perth{web}Girls! We built their website pro-bono, have written a heap of tutorial content and have been long-time mentors. Check out the phenomenal work they do.

WordPress
Perth

Our founder Jo is the lead organiser for the Perth WordPress meetup, and both Jo and Ross are regular speakers. The meetup is a great way to bring together WordPress users of all skill levels, from pro developers to small businesses, students to bloggers.

Event
Sponsorship

Part of the way we create impact and give back is through sponsoring awesome events! We sponsor the WordPress meetups, a yearly Harmony Day event and Carols by Candlelight… along with other worthy causes that pop up throughout the year.
