We’re designers, brand strategists, earth lovers and champions of small business. We believe great design can change the world, no matter how small or large your business or brand is.


That’s why we’ve created a virtual design agency that helps small businesses and solopreneurs achieve big things.


We work with only the best copywriters, photographers,SEO specialists,digital marketers + video techs to make sure there’s a skilled ‘team’ by your side, giving you wings and making your dreams take flight.

What we’re

  • We think every business, no matter how small, deserves the right to an extraordinary online presence, top-shelf creative and an inspiring brand.
  • We create brand stories that are raw, genuine and packed with flavour.
  • We believe that as you build your business, you deserve the ease, grace and beauty that comes with a flexible brand (that grows as you grow).
  • We love what we do, and we want you to love what you do too. We always listen and we care about what’s going on in your world (like if your puppy is sick, yoga is your latest obsession, or your little ones keep you up all night).
  • We solve problems using creative flair, strategic know-how and a strong sense of intuition built on years of professional experience.
  • We work hard and we pay attention to the tiny details because that helps us create awesome designs that people remember.

We help small businesses achieve big dreams.

Hey, Zoë here.

I’m the Founder, Director and lead creative of The Design Order – a creative agency nestled on the Northern Beaches in Sydney.

Tell me: have you ever worked with a big design agency and the fees just got waaay out of control?

Or hired a designer to freshen your website and you started to feel like the whole process was a little messy and, kind of, disconnected? You know, where you felt a bit left out of the whole thing, like a passenger on a ride that had no darn direction.


I get that feeling and it sucks.


As a professional designer with over 15 years’ experience, I’ve worked with hundreds of small business owners, start-ups, creative freelancers and entrepreneurs.


I’ve witnessed first-hand the frustrations business owners experience each and every time they work with a larger agency – exorbitant price tags, big blow outs, complicated processes and communication hiccups from not dealing with the person who is knee deep in your work.


That’s why I created The Design Order.


Over a glass of wine one night, I cooked up the idea to create a virtual design agency which would bridge the gap between working with a freelancer and working with an agency.


I get that you want to work hand in hand with the people who are working ON your job.

I know that you don’t mind that we’re ‘officeless’ because it gives us a pricing edge that we pass directly onto you. And it comes with the kind of solid agency experience and collaborative approach you can trust.


Because here’s the thing: Collaboration breeds magic.


When the magic happens and the sparks fly, it’s the best feeling in the world. Nothing makes me happier than creating awesome visual brands and watching my clients’ business transform as a result.
