Our mission is happy clients
Having happy clients doesn’t happen by accident, you have to work at it. From the very start, we like to connect with our customers to understand them and their business thoroughly. The reason? We want to make sure we are not just delivering stunning design but also functional, bespoke website features that are customised to meet individual needs.

We worked with Royal Astrologer Penny Thornton to reduce her hosting costs and improve her website performance. Her website astrolutely.com is seen by millions of people every week and this volume of traffic requires high-performance hosting and precision tuning. We were able to deliver hosting at a fraction of the cost she was paying mainstream providers, and all hosted on her own dedicated web server.
British Connections is a Hong Kong based UK Visa agency. They approached us to build a modern, interactive and visually appealing site. The site has additional custom features including a booking engine that allows users to book and confirm appointments online.
Great service! I really do not know much about websites or hosting, so to find Asporea who took the stress out of trying to sort this out was brilliant.
Girls’ Night In
We were asked to rebuild the website for the charity book series Girls’ Night In. Bestselling authors Jessica Adams, Chris Manby and Fiona Walker created the charity fundraising Girls’ Night In series more than 20 years ago, with the support of the Curtis Brown literary agency.
The paperback collection, together with its spin-off journal, audiobook and children’s’ sister project Kids’ Night In (Puffin and HarperCollins) has involved some of the biggest names in publishing and entertainment including Stella McCartney, J.K.Rowling, Kate Moss, Bob Geldof, Nick Hornby and Candace Bushnell. The series across America, Europe and Australia between 2000 and 2014 raised a total of $3.5 million in revenue for War Child.
We featured the profiles of all 366 authors. This was done using custom fields, with each author having a record in the site. These were then incorporated into various views including a sortable view of contributors by their contributions.
We have been working with Lynette and Greg at Urban Composter for many years. Their unique bokashi-style composting product is marketed and manufactured in Australia. The website generates direct online-sales revenues through Woocommerce.
We partnered with Ruth Phillips to design a community concept to support her growing community of event attendees. We used WordPress and Elementor to create a unique look and feel for the site. Under the cover, the site integrates WooCommerce as a payment engine with Zoom videoconferencing service to automatically register paid members for regular zoom calls. Asporea also provided expert marketing advice and community building support for the launch of this new service.
Big thank you! Confirming what I hope you know well – you are a marketing genius!

During this update, we also used Advanced Custom Fields to create a post-type for her books, allowing books to be easily entered into a backend dashboard for consistent display using a simple and elegant template.
Hong Kong based company TheatreArtLife provides an online platform for live entertainment industry professionals to connect and network with each other, seek employment opportunities around the globe and seek out professional development.

We worked closely with Madeleine in the design phase, taking her feedback and colour recommendations to build a truly custom site for her.
Nicole Wood approached Asporea for redesign assistance for her website which she had been building and managing for some time. We used WordPress+Elementor to completely re-imagine the design and incorporate new time-saving features including the ability for users to purchase Zoom classes and receive automatic enrollment. Users can also pay for personal appointments, choosing a time and locking in a Zoom appointment which requires zero intervention from the client. The site is also set up for memberships and delivery of online classes.
Magick! Looks great – thanks sooooo much for your patience, creativity, honesty, flexibility and for getting my vision!

When Sydney based Hatha Yoga and Yin Yoga teacher, and sound healer Barbara Courtille started talking to us about her exciting business plans we convinced her that her Squarespace website was not the solution for long-term, cost-effective growth.
We helped her migrate her site to WordPress, built her a new online store and helped her host her events through her website potentially saving her thousands of dollars in third-party service fees in future years.
The new Yoginithreads.com website now integrates many website features she used to go to third parties for, saving on costs and getting her a larger slice of revenue per sale.
When Royal Astrologer and media personality Debbie Frank contacted us for a website refresh, we were delighted. We were able to increase Debbie’s efficiency and improve the SEO quality of the website by creating custom data entry fields for her horoscope content.

Lucas Australian Migration
We worked with Hong Kong based Immigration Lawyer Don Lucas on a new website for his new Lucas Australian Migration business. We developed a visual design and brand identity for the new company with a matching website.
The website takes the manual process out of booking and scheduling free 15-minute assessment calls through the website. After client registration the website manages the booking, initiates the zoom call and notifies the customer. The booking engine also syncs the appointments to an existing calendar so that there are no appointment clashes between the online bookings and other real-world appointments.
I thought I was hiring a website designer, not a combo including a marketing guru, anthropologist cum interior designer and counselling psychologist. I love it!
Gift of the Gab
In late 2020, Special Education and Behaviour Management Consultant Gabrielle Mead approached us to redesign her aging website, which was build by us many years ago.

The site uses Elementor page builder technology to deliver pixel-perfect responsive design regardless of the device.
