About

 

Hi, I’m Jason Lasky and I have been living in Byron Shire since 2007. My work is part of my lifestyle. I feel very fortunate and grateful for my family, friends, social and business community. I love working with people and organisations, to help them realise their aspirations.

I began designing websites as an extension to freelance desktop publishing in the late 90's. The 90's was an exciting time to introduce people to the digital age and the World Wide Web. I gathered a listing of my clients and pulled together some useful information to create a local directory. A decade later, I returned to creating websites, when I moved to Byron in 2007 and discovered WordPress in 2008.

It's a pleasure to be part of the evolution of OpenSource and more recently the online social web. I feel great satisfaction making a difference to real people and a WordPress website makes it so easy.

Who do I generally design websites for?

Since 2008, I've designed and supported WordPress websites for all sorts of aspirations.

  • Teachers & Facilitators
  • Professionals & Consultants
  • Musicians, Workshops & Events
  • Small Businesses, Clinics & Shops
  • Life Drawing, Painters & Photographers
  • Community Associations, Projects & Organizations.

What I do - Web Design Process

The benefits of OpenSource

  • How can a quality website package start at $645, while some web designers only start at $2,000?
  • The OpenSource & WordPress Community have created all the amazing code and share it.
  • The savings of using OpenSource allows for more budget for copy, photos, video, graphics & SEO.
  • OpenSource gives you a world of options and support - unlike proprietary software development.

The benefits WordPress

  • I prefer WordPress, one of the most popular and easy to use web site platforms available.
  • WordPress was initially used for blogs but has evolved in to a Content Management System.
  • WordPress allows you to easily edit your own website content, media and page menus.
  • As the website owner you provide the content and can add more pages and edit existing ones.
  • WordPress has thousands of beautiful themes to browse and useful plug-ins to choose from.
  • I provide a growing list of recommended WordPress plugins and a short list of default plugins.
  • I recommend a list of Free & Premium Themes to find something you like.

WordPress Web Hosting

  • Some Australian Web Hosting providers are still over charging compared to international providers.
  • Since 2001, I've chosen ICDSoft Web Hosting, with server centres in Europe, North America and Asia.
  • I recommend ICDSoft hosting for reliability, speedy quality support and customer satisfaction.

Your Local Web Designer & Support

I love living and working in Byron Bay for it’s pristine natural surf beaches, rivers and forests, an abundance of creativity and community. Byron is a small collection of friendly towns with cafes, culture, arts, dance, healing, music and fresh food farmers markets. I am a volunteer for several local community organizations and have a passion for a thriving local coastal lifestyle and sustainable economy.

Does anyone have any clue as to what might be the eternal consequences of clicking the singular option “ok” button, just to close the annoying pop up which covers up a third of the page in the web browser? Could we please have similar pop up covering a third of the screen as an official “undo” button, incase we change our minds during the seven day cooling off period? Of course we would click “undo” just as quickly and be back where we started, eager to agree to anything just to get rid of the annoying pop up. ... See MoreSee Less
