Our mission is to help small businesses better represent themselves without paying high agency prices.

Get to know us

We bring years of experience in branding, design and web development. We are ready to bring your business to the next level.

Starting as a Canberra-based team, we’ve loved working mostly with Canberra small businesses, and we know a lot of people love to work with developers who are local. Being an online business we now team members in Melbourne and Adelaide, and we also have clients all around Australia, and don’t expect this ever to change.

We value:

Honesty. We charge for our time and effort and aim for a win/win.

Trustworthiness. We put our full effort into our work for our clients and do what we say we’ll do. We are also human, so if we get something wrong, we will admit fault and work to resolve the issue.

Friendliness. One thing that makes us different is that we’re here and available. We aim to reply to all emails and phone calls and are happy to meet for a coffee. You hire us, you get us (we don’t outsource our work).

What do we bring to the table?

We’re passionate

We’re really passionate about what we do, and that comes through in our work. We only take on projects where we can see a potential to do great work. It’s more than just another job. When we’re all in, we’re more creative, and the projects reap the benefits.

We listen

We want to know what you like, and what you see that your business needs.  Too many designers come in loaded with assumptions.  They try to impose their own style, or steer you towards a more expensive project. This is your business, your brand, and your site. We’ll ask the right questions, make suggestions and work up a design with you.

We’re good at what we do

We’ve spent years building our skills and keeping up with best practices in design, coding and security. We continue to study as things change.

A brand is more than just a logo, its colours, typography, and imagery and how all these elements interact and work cohesively for you and your brand. Similarly, your website should be working for you – not just look pretty on the surface. You should have an online home that not only looks good, but is functional AND secure.

We’re here

We live and work in Canberra, Melbourne and Adelaide, we don’t send any of our work off-shore. After we finish your project, we won’t run away, we’re just a zoom, coffee, or phone call away. We keep backups of all the work we do, so if you misplace anything, we will still have it for you. We also offer ongoing managed hosting, to make sure your site stays in good shape.

Meet the team

Founder, Designer, Frontend WordPress Developer

I’ve been inspired by design for as long as I can remember, and have over 20 years’ experience in the field. I worked for a charity for ten years, where I learned how to listen to people, work hard and never stop until the job is done.

On top of that, I’m secretly a bit of a nerd. When I first came across CSS (a web language), I suddenly felt at home, combining my love of tech and design.

My ultimate weakness is stationery. I love a trip to Officeworks, Kikki K or a late-night online splurge and own more highlighters than I care to admit, all in search of just the right pastel colour.

Sophie Hynson
Graphic Designer

It has been my privilege to work with a wide range of businesses, from start-ups to multinational companies, as both a freelancer and as part of design and advertising agencies in Sydney and Canberra for over 16 years.

Each job I undertake is approached with attention to detail, ensuring the style and tone of the piece works harmoniously within the overall brand and for the target audience.

My experience has taught me that no two companies are the same, therefore their design solutions should not be the same. I believe every project should be approached with thoughtfulness and intelligence, uniquely designed and crafted with the greatest of care.

Graphic Designer

I thrive on designing brands, websites, infographics, reports and other design elements for organisations that are having a big impact on the world around them. I have over 15 years of design experience, working primarily in the government, not-for-profit and education sectors.

I’m dedicated to helping clients connect with their audience and deliver their message cleanly and succinctly through simple, bold graphic design.

I also run Designer admin (designeradmin.com), a support hub that helps other designers set up business systems and processes in their design businesses.

I’m based in Melbourne and love travel, reading, coffee, and am a little bit of a self-confessed foodie!

Sarah Oates

Graphic Designer

I have over 17 years experience as a Graphic Designer, and I love my job. My passion lies in developing brand identities, whether it be a completely new brand or freshening an existing one. And then using that brand identity and making it seamlessly work through out all facets of a business.

Design is 100% a collaborative process and I am all about working with my clients to explore their ideas and passions and bring them to life!

When I am not designing I am running after two active boys with my husband, with two gorgeous old pups and when the sun is shining you better believe that I will be out in it with a G&T in hand!

Kind words

“Endure Web Studios built my website and I couldn’t be happier with it. The team are very creative and have great communication throughout the whole process. I’m so lucky they were recommended to me when I was on the hunt for a web designer because they are far beyond the rest. Thank you so much for everything!”
