Chris Ard

Senior Web Developer

Chris believes in making technology accessible to everyone. Starting at a very young age, he has been troubleshooting computer issues and looking for better ways to implement and innovate the ideas for friends, family, and businesses. He tends to think outside-of-the-box and enjoys making very technical things simpler and easier to understand.

With a background in Behavioural Sciences from the United States, Chris has shifted his focus to a technology-centred career that is fueled by his desire to help small businesses grow and have a fair chance in the competitive online marketplace. He is currently studying Information Technology and Web Development at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology to further sharpen his knowledge of the field.

As a Web Designer with technical experience, he is constantly looking at the broader picture to make sure a website functions and looks great on a microscopic level. He believes that the little things are what lead to making a great impression and a successful product. Chris prefers keeping his design ideas simple and clean, but of course, loves to explore outside the boundaries for new ideas. He can’t help but fall in love with ideas that are just awesomely weird and different.
