Jonathan Bird Web Development

About me

Jonathan Bird Portrait

Global Web Development Expertise

Welcome to my corner of the digital world! I'm Jonathan Bird, a full-time freelance website designer and developer based in the sunny Brisbane, Australia. With more than a decade of commercial experience, I'm as excited about what I do as ever. Whilst I have a university degree in Information Technology (graduating with Distinction), I'm a firm believer in the power of self-teaching as it keeps me up to date with the latest trends and releases, enabling me to deliver proven solutions for my clients.

I specialise in developing quality websites, custom web applications, and eCommerce solutions that solve real-world problems. Servicing Enterprise customers, Federal and State Government Departments and Agencies, and Not-for-Profit organisations across Australia, namely focusing web development in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, and Canberra. I've worked across a number of different industries with organisations of every size, which has given me the knowledge to create quality solutions for my clients that scale. From the visible parts of a website to the technical business logic and database structure behind the scenes, I handle all aspects to ensure a seamless user experience.

However, it's not just about the technical side. I pride myself on providing clear communication and reliable collaboration. I've built long-lasting relationships with my clients with many ongoing projects spanning over 5 years, and I believe it's because I'm available when they need me and always keep them informed throughout the project.

Throughout my career, I've had the privilege of collaborating with Australia's most prominent brands. These experiences have honed my ability to create scalable solutions while understanding the unique challenges they face. The result of which is a developer who has commercial experience leading the entire web development process: strategy, content, design, development and integration with external systems, crafting digital landscapes that stand the test of time.

If you're ready to make your website project a reality with a down-to-earth approach and a focus on results backed by over a decade of experience, let's connect.

“Highly recommend Jonathan for anything web development in Brisbane and Australia-wide. Have worked with a lot of developers over the years and Jonathan’s work and communication on projects has been a clear standout. A very talent developer if you’re looking for anything from WordPress, Shopify, Laravel, or anything in-between.”

“Digital Bird is my first pick for delivering web projects on time, on budget and to the brief — every time. Beyond being a delight to work with, Jonathan Bird is that rare breed of developer who is both masterful on the tools (an absolute Laravel whizz!) while also being adept at engaging the client in UX-thinking, to which he applies expert insights, gained through years of experience, to help further improve the end design for the target user’s experience. This powerful combination of skills means that 4 years on and a variety of projects later (from search directories to corporate website developments), Digital Bird firmly remains my first pick for developer.”

“Jonathan Bird was instrumental in redesigning my business’ website and provided invaluable feedback throughout the entire process. The results far exceeded my expectations. They then went above and beyond and met all deadlines in revamping the site again, when we re branded our business. Jonathan has been managing our website updates and hosting ever since and, with more than 10 years industry experience, is always able to add value, solve problems and exceed expectations. I highly recommend him.”
