Freelance Web Designer for hire

Hi, I’m Emma Paul, a degree qualified freelance Web Designer, Front End Developer and Graphic Designer in Sydney, Australia.

With a HUGE passion for design, typography, colour and the web, I find a certain joy in bringing these four elements together. In my 12 years within the industry, I’ve worked in the corporate, agency and government sectors with some great organisations including triple j & the ABC, JWT and Clemenger BBDO.

I love staying up to date with the latest online technologies & trends, and using them to bring great projects to life. I can be involved in your project from start to finish, or come on board once your shiny new design concepts are complete and ready to build.

With extensive experience creating a wide range of content to suit many age groups and target markets, my specialties include Responsive Websites and Mobile Friendly design, Front End Development and WordPress Development, Web Design, HTML Emails, Business logos/Branding & Stationery and everything between.

What’s your next project?

I’d love to be involved.
