Canberra Web Design  – The Early days

In the early days of the Information Super Highway, Google didn’t exist. Flying Toasters and Windows 3.0 were on their way out and today’s Director of Evolver, Chris Powell was “surfing the web” on a 14K baud modem with the Netscape 1.0 browser and conducting Boolean queries at search engines Excite, Infoseek, and Lycos, and within a year Northern Light , AltaVista and HotBot

sausage software logoArmed with an early version of Photoshop (that shipped free with a flatbed scanner), GIF Animator 1.0 and HOTDOG, (one of the world’s first WYSIWYG HTML editors by Australian software development company Sausage Software). Chris designed the user interface for the first parliamentary intranet. and built web pages for the Parliamentary Information Systems Office (PISO) of the Australian Department of Parliamentary Services (formerly Dept. Parliamentary Reporting Staff) at Parliament House in Canberra, Australia’s national Capital.

Canberra’s working population is roughly split 50/50 between the private sector (commercial businesses) and the public sector (Federal Govt and Local Govt). There are of course also the Not For Profit, Charity, Industry Peak Body, for and Other sectors.

IF you live in Canberra, and work in web design, then chances are you are working for the Government. Public sector web designers and web developers would outnumber the private sector many times over. Today, depending on the Department and your role you would be on a salary of approx $60,000pa as a junior and around $115,000pa as a team lead or manager. Those figures do not include the generous 15.4% employer paid superannuation contributions. Is it any wonder the public sector team outnumbers the private sector squad. . 

For a  public servant in Canberra back in the 1990s, having a “side hustle” was actually known as having a “conflict of interest”. Working a second job was frowned upon by the Australian Public Service and the pursuit of any additional income by way of a second job required approval by your Branch Head or Assistant Secretary, a designation equivalent to today’s Senior Executive Service (SES).

Getting private website design clients was not an easy sell in the Canberra commercial zones of Braddon. Kingston and, Fyshwick. Deakin should be a happy hunting ground for any freelance web designer in Canberra. The suburb Deakin is comprised of a residential and a commercial zone. Kent St splits the two. On the West side of Kent St is the commercial zone which is home to just about every Peak Body and interest group in Australia. 

It seemed that everyone in business had a nephew or knew a kid down the round with a PC who had a warez copy of FrontPage and could build you a website for $50.
