FOUND design

Hi! Welcome to the FOUND design website.

This site will give you a flavour of the work of the web development company FOUND design, based in Melbourne, Australia. We're a small but perfectly formed organisation, offering website design and development services to businesses across the globe. We have years of experience in creating beautiful, functional websites, and love getting great results.

Have a look through the portfolio to see some examples of our work, take a look at the brains behind FOUND, or learn why you should be talking to us.

Let us help you find the website you've been searching for.


FOUND design is run by two key members:

Chris, Director
Chris originally hails from the UK, from the far reaches of South London. She set up FOUND design 5 years ago, to help small businesses and not-for-profit organisations, by building portfolio websites to promote their work. Since then, Chris has worked with a large range of clients, from marketing companies, to performance athletes, to environmental organisations.

Chris is passionate about usability, and making sites which are easy to use, and accessible to a wide audience. Having previously worked in the corporate, government and not-for-profit sectors, in the UK and Australia, she has a good insight into business interests and needs. Chris has a Masters in Computer Science, and is a member of the Melbourne Web Standards Group. When not working, she is a keen triathlete, and book lover.

Nathan, Developer
Nathan is a passionate developer, and web enthusiast, who likes to play with different technologies. Nathan has extensive experience as a developer, working for various multi-national organisations. He works in many programming languages, including java, php, .net, flash, ajax and javascript, amongst others.

Nathan is currently undertaking a Ph.D. in computer science. He is involved in several research and commercial projects, and is always on the look out for new technologies and new approaches in the IT industry. When not working (which is, admittedly, very rare) Nathan enjoys the odd game of badminton, and dinner with friends.
