Who else has one?
If you're a debut author, you've got a new book coming out, or you're an established author but your site needs a re-vamp get in touch.
As an author/ illustrator, I had clear design ideas on the look and feel like. I wasn’t sure if that'd be compatible with a designer who knows his trade so well. Jin quickly picked up on the need for me to work in draft form and refine the end result.Visit Anne's site →
Jin gets the job done, which is precisely what you want in a website designer. He listens carefully to what you want and then actions it. Jin even gave me a tutorial over the phone. I now feel capable of uploading blog posts and graphics which is no easy feat for a Luddite like me!Visit Marianne's site →
The most excruciating part of the process was the most productive — a questionnaire that Jin had me fill in before the commencement of any work. It left me with a clear idea of who I thought my target audience was and what I wanted from my website.Visit Karen's site →
Jin was not intimidated by the flood of information I sent him, and intuitively reflected my passions and interests in his design. He answered all my questions, no matter how foolish some of them must have sounded to him, in a patient and logical manner.Visit Stephen's site →
When I started searching for a website designer I felt daunted and a little lost. The result is a website that captures the essence of my style as writer. Jin has that rare quality in a designer – he listens.Visit Vikki's site →

I came to Jin & Co as a new author with a limited budget. I wanted a simple, attractive, accessible design with my book as the primary focus. I felt he understood what I was looking for and appreciated Jin's willingness to answer my many questions.Visit Rachael's site →
Jin has created a functional yet beautiful author website which, amazingly, given we've never met, captures a lot of my personality. There was initially a bit of confusion about how much of the design concept he or I was responsible for, but he really went the extra mile, putting in extra time of his own, to clear this up and come up with a design we were both happy with.Visit Clare's site →
If you are looking for someone to design your professional author website, then you can stop looking now! Jin & Co. are the goods!
Jin is one of those talented IT guys who also has the gift of creative genius. Through thoughtful questioning, Jin was able to help me discover my ‘online identity’. He was able to take my ideas and turn them into an online reality.
The process was simple, straightforward, professional and productive. Although I live in regional NSW, Jin was in regular contact via email, Skype and phone. This made me feel engaged and connected to the web design project. Even now that my site is live and I’m managing it myself, Jin’s support is only ever an email away.
Because the internet is part of our daily lives, it seems like most websites are kind of the same. But I know that my site is something different; it reflects me as a unique individual. Lots of people have commented that my site is quirky, different and most importantly – memorable.
And everyone keeps asking me – who did your website, it looks amazing? The answer is Jin & Co.
I wanted a website that was attractive, modern, appealing to the audience of my books and easy to navigate. Jin gave me just that. He was very clear throughout the entire process and was always ready to answer questions. He considered my ideas and feedback, as well as offering his professional opinion on elements of design. I am very happy with the finished website and would recommend Jin to other authors seeking a website that is professional and affordable.Visit Kylie's site →
How does it work?
An author's website project is broken into three main phases, pre-production, production and post-production.
Week 1: Pre-Production
- We discuss your requirements and I plan the site
- I design a mockup of the look
- You review the design mockups and I make any requested changes
Week 2: Production
- I build the site
- I put in your site's content
- You review the constructed functioning site and I make any requested changes
Week 3: Post-Production
- We test the site to make sure everything works
- hook up your email
- do some basic training
- publish it live to the internet
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does it cost?
How much it costs is totally up to you.
Even if it's just small for now, the best way to go from here is for you to establish some kind of budget and I can tailor a proposal to fit that budget.
We suggest a budget of $3,500.
How long does it take?
Typically 3 weeks in real time.
This includes roughly 4 days of actual production time, then add communication between us, time for you to prepare and collect content, time for you to make reviews of graphics or website construction, and me to make amendments based on the reviews.
So roughly 3 weeks.
