About

Hi, I’m Debbie!

I’m a freelance web designer, and the owner of Web Happy.

Although I started my working life as an environmental officer in local government, I fell in love with Photoshop, design and all things internet when I created my first website back in 1997! I changed careers to follow my new found passion, and after a stint creating websites for HarperCollins Publishers and many well-known authors, decided to go it alone in my own web design business.

Soulscape Web Design was born in Sydney in 2002, and was renamed Web Happy in July 2018, following a move to the beautiful seaside town of Portland, Victoria. I have designed and built hundreds of websites over the last 18 years, for all manner of clients across Australia and overseas. 

During that time I’ve honed my skills in listening to clients, understanding their businesses and building the most effective website for their needs, and their budget. I know I must be doing something right, because my first three clients are still with me, 18 years on!

I’m passionate about web design and creating the best possible website for every client. I love working one-on-one with small business owners, community organisations, and entrepreneurs to bring their visions online. I’d love to work with you too – so please do get in touch with me if you’re interested in working together.

I’m here to save you time, money and stress....

That’s why I offer a special streamlined, guided process from start to finish.

I want you to see your business come to life online, and feel confident putting your site in front of potential clients/customers – in the most stress-free way possible.

I want you to feel like you have a partner you can rely on throughout the website creation process (and beyond) – so you can focus on your business, not “techie” stuff.

And I want you to feel confident knowing that you can make all those little updates to your website’s content whenever you need – without having to spend more money having someone else do it for you.

Why work with me?

I believe in Keeping It Simple (and) Stress-free! From start to finish, my aim is to take the complexity out of the web development process.

I value good, clear communication and avoid confusing my clients with technobabble!

Kind words from happy clients...

Debbie, you are awesome!!! I can’t believe how wonderful my site looks now! It’s so professional and clean! I don’t have the words to thank you for your support and talent. What an incredible difference, needless to say I’m in awe of your work and eternally grateful I found you! Stress free like magic, from hum drum to sophisticated! Thanks so very much for taking me as a client, I can’t believe I was so lucky!

Stone Island Lady Jewelry

I love my new website which Debbie designed for the launch of my brand new business. She did endless hours of research to find the right tools to do what I needed and was very patient in explaining how they all worked. She was always very fast to respond to my endless questions and stayed in constant contact with me throughout the design process. The finished product really reflects who I am and what my business is about. Thanks from the bottom of my heart Debbie for helping me make my dream a reality!

Claim Your Treasure

Debbie is absolutely brilliant! She took the ideas that I had in my head and made the website look exactly as I wanted. Changing content and adding new product lines is extremely simple. She answered my questions and I had a few, quickly and clearly. I was hesitant at first with her being so far away and not meeting with her beforehand, but I am very happy with the end product. My only regret is not finding her years ago.

A little more about me...

The beach is my happy place
When I’m not busy with website stuff, I love combing the local beaches, collecting shells, sea glass and any other interesting bits and pieces I wander across. There’s something truly special about feeling the salt air on your skin and the sand between your toes, while discovering little treasures from the sea. If only it could be summer all year round...
