It's about time. Let's meet.

 

So, what is Above the Ordinary?

Our design studio, Above the Ordinary, was created out of the desire to bring beautiful, effortless and functional design to established template-based platforms, without looking like a template site. We love crafting pre-built into fully custom looking.

In addition to website design, we create pre-made logos, branding suites and marketing packages to present a holistic, cohesive overall identity. Refreshing or launching your digital presence shouldn't be expensive, difficult or challenging.

We make getting your business, blog or portfolio online simple, time-efficient and effective.

We also value transparent, high-quality information, so we regularly blog about all things relating to your online space.

PSST. We love making friends, so drop us a line anytime.

 

Our Approach.

Working with established platforms allows us the freedom to focus on the design, functionality and layout without needing to invest into full scale development. Above the Ordinary takes a playful yet modern approach to working with these systems and processes with a fresh eye.

We work closely with Squarespace, Showit, WordPress and design exclusively within the Adobe Creative Suite.


Who We Are.

We're designers and who recognised a common problem with template based designs and pre-made branding: a lack of fresh, modern creativity that looks unique with each fitting while being affordable. Not only do we sell designs, we teach how to create them.  Above the Ordinary delivers an experience for bloggers, small-to-medium sized businesses and creatives desiring digital design with an edge.

Our work is with our clients at heart, creating items that can be perfectly tailored to each individual brand.


Giving back, always.

We're incredibly fortunate to do what we love and to work with businesses like yours. Therefore, 10% of proceeds from each and every purchase from Above the Ordinary will go to a nominated organisation. Each quarter we'll re-cap where the proceeds are being distributed via those who have purchased that month. We'll also post a note in our blog about that quarter's recipient. We're extremely passionate about this and vow to always give back to our community and those less fortunate.
