Welcome to the online portfolio of Rowan Attenborough, freelance graphic and web designer. I design and develop bespoke, hand crafted websites, design logos, stationary and print material.
Hume Central Secondary College
The Victorian Government Education Department needed to launch a new site for Hume Central Secondary College.
I was responsible for the website design, development, CMS setup and full deployment and maintenance of the site. I presented to a board of government stakeholders and gave follow up face to face training.
Geraldine Cox is president and operator of the Sunrise Children’s Village orphanage in Cambodia. I was privileged enough to be asked to design and develop her personal website to promote her speaking events.
I was responsible for the website design, development, CMS setup and full deployment and maintenance of the site.
ChaplainWatch is a not-for-profit charity that proactively address the issues and consequences of alcohol (and other drug) related anti-social behaviour, crime and violence that occur within the major entertainment precinct of Brisbane.
They came to me to develop a new brand for them including a new logo, stationary and website design.
Angorichina Station is Australia’s best value and exclusive Outback homestead lodge. It is located in the sun-seared wilderness of South Australia’s Flinders Ranges, recognized as one of Australia’s National Landscapes and one of the country’s most impressive outback locations.
I was referred to Angorichina by a current client to re-brand their business and launch a new website. I produced a new logo and brand style guide and re-designed the website and developed it in WordPress.
Social Ventures Australia (SVA) is a non-profit organisation investing in social change, by helping increase the impact and build the sustainability of organisations in the social sector.
I have worked with SVA for over 4 years and have been their exclusive online supplier during that time. Most recently I re-developed the website which included a full re-design, content and navigation development and migration to the WordPress platform.
The Tailor is a bespoke travel company creating hand crafted luxury Australian experiences. I was referred to them from a previous client to build their new site. Encompassing over 400 pages and 2000 images it needed a unique tagging system so that users could filter the content by region, interest and season.
I was responsible for the full development of the site which included custom WordPress development, HTML/CSS development and information architecture.
‘I found Rowan to be extremely knowledgeable on all CMS systems, excellent on deadlines and overall a thorough professional when it came to his overall understanding of online marketing and sales. For our company the most important point was his understanding that a website is an important distribution channel and he was able to optimize the site so that we maximized lead generation part of our business. Furthermore we continue to use Rowan and recommend him to our colleagues’
Drew Kluska, Managing Director of The Tailor
‘I began working with Rowan at the beginning of 2008 on a website for Geraldine Cox (www.geraldinecox.org) an amazing Australian living in and running orphanages in Cambodia. I love this website. Rowan met the brief spot on, producing a website that is not only functional, but the design is sympathetic to the culture and style of the Cambodian lifestyle and beliefs.
After this positive experience, I also engaged Rowan to build a website for a local Brisbane charity called ChaplainWatch (www.chaplainwatch.com). I was confident that he would be able to produce a quality website, that once again reflected the heart of this charity.
I have since referred Rowan to a number of clients who have seen his work through these sites and I would recommend him again in the future. Rowan is creative, capable and competitively priced. Take a look, his work speaks for itself.’
‘Rowan could not have been more accommodating and came to where I was staying and worked in with my tight travelling schedule to get all the information he required to produce the wonderful website that you can see. It was clear he was not interested in making money out of me, but really wanted to do what he could to make a difference in the way knew his expertise could be used for Sunrise’s benefit. His professionalism has been clearly proven by the many compliments I get from people to love how the website presents and I owe this to Rowan and his skill.’
Geraldine Cox AM, Country Director and President of Australia Cambodia Foundation, Inc – and Sunrise Children’s Villages in Cambodia
‘Rowan created a professional and engaging website for me at the life institute. At the same time Rowan was an absolute delight to work with throughout the whole process. He also goes the extra mile in everything he does for clients after development with google stats and support. I recommend rowan’s services for anyone in small to large business, community and sporting groups.’
Dr Julie Rosengren, Managing Director of LIFE Institute
‘The prospect of creating, from scratch, a new online concept for the financial services sector was daunting to say the least. At the beginning we had a deep vision but no knowledge on how it would become reality and Rowan Attenborough took us there. Not only did he relate to and manifest our vision; he also understood our feelings about our new website and what it meant to our business. What we ended up with was a unique site with everything we needed and wanted in abundance, but also a trusted adviser in Rowan whose professionalism, talent, technical competency, patience and ethics has created the yardstick for our future dealings in the world of internet technology.
Rowan has the rare mix of practical technical knowhow and the ability to translate the language and needs of the client into the true essence of an enduring and productive online presence: engagement.’
Mandy Lamkin, Director of Enrich Australia
‘Rowan asked us what we were looking to achieve with our site and the ‘feel’ we wanted to have with it. We were impressed with the initial concepts he came up with and how he was able to get our vague ideas into achieving our desired outcome. Rowan was able to really get ‘into’ our ideas and get them working effectively. I have reccommended Rowan to numerous business owners over the past 5 years and all have come back to me thanking for such a great referral.’
Daniel Acton, Managing Director Equality Marketing and Work and Travel OZ
