About This Workshop

This workshop is scheduled for Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST), which may appear to be an unusual time in your local timezone. Please check the workshop time and timezone carefully to make sure you have the correct timing.

Creating good websites is hard.

However, as a designer, marketer, project manager or business owner, knowing how to do it well can be an absolute game-changer.

Whether you’re making one for yourself, for your company or for a client, planning, designing and launching a new website can be a thoroughly interesting and highly rewarding experience. There is nothing more satisfying than having a website you made ‘go live’ and watching people from all over the world visit a tiny part of the internet that you created.

In this 90 minute class, you will be taken on a tightly compact run-through of the multiple stages of a typical website project, from the very first step to the very last drop.

Fast paced and packed full of solid information, clear instruction and practical advice, this is a power hour of website creation that will give you the tools you need to make your next project an online success story.

  • Designers/developers
  • Marketers

About the Instructor

Independent Brand Strategist

Hello, I am Richie.

I started off as a writer, struggled as a journalist, turned into a copywriter and came out as a strategist.

I’ve worked in brand and digital agencies in the UK and Australia for over 12 years, collaborating with designers, technologists, project managers, clients and loads of other incredibly smart people that do things I can’t.

Over the years, I’ve learnt how to use my love of research, writing and human behaviour to influence the outcome of hundreds of projects spanning brand, digital and creative content - from cultural institutions to global corporations, Italian-made womens’ shoes to Vietnamese noodle delivery apps.

I’m passionate about sharing what I know/don’t with others through teaching, speaking and getting involved whenever I can.

I love juice, outdoor swimming pools and battle rap, and am partly responsible for the success of Russell Brand.

Talks I've done:

Billy Blue College of Design
Design Institute of Australia
The Design Kids
The Foundry Tasmania
FuckUp Nights
General Assembly
LCI Melbourne
Shillington Design College

Workshops I run:
