Our Team

Our Story

Established by Anthony and Emma Colfelt in 2011, Handmade Web & Design is born from a passion for great design and how it can help businesses of all sizes to succeed.

Anthony obtained his BA in Graphic Design from the University of Canberra then worked as a Graphic Designer for Canberran agency Symagy. 5 years in London as a Senior Designer for BBC New Media followed, then he moved to Seattle, USA, taking up User Experience Manager and Creative Director roles at social media trailblazers classmates.com and myfamily.com.

Emma obtained her BSc in Psychology from University College London in 2000, winning an Economic and Social Sciences Research Council Scholarship to fund her MSc. She moved to Australia in 2006 and started working as an Experience Architect for pioneering experience design firm Different, specialising in website usability testing and customer research.

Anthony and Emma have worked together since 2007. From guiding the ABC's digital services development to introducing innovative customer-centred design techniques to companies such as Foxtel, AMP, Westpac, Cochlear and Harvey Norman, they worked at Different as Creative Director and Practice Director until 2011 when they moved to Berry. Establishing their own design studio was an obvious next step, and Handmade Web & Design has quickly earned a strong reputation for quality, professionalism, and friendly service.
