Creative design, web & digital agency that looks for a point of difference

OK…so more about us: Hopping Mad Designs has designed and built well over 1,000 websites for businesses in Sydney and around Australia. From eCommerce shopping carts, small business static websites right through to large complex websites, highly powerful CMS sites, SEO campaigns, social media and a huge range of graphic design services, we can say that we are one of Sydney’s oldest and most trusted web, SEO and graphic design studios.

Hopping Mad Designs came to life in 1998. We’ve been around since the very beginning of the Australian web design industry. Even before the internet was common place.

To survive for over 18 years in a design market place as competitive as Sydney, suggests that we may have got a few things right when it comes to the challenge of delivering quality designs over the long-term.


It’s a simple philosophy, but we believe as strongly today as when we entered the market that for as long as we love designing, our clients will love what we create.

At the heart of design work that evokes emotion, captures a brand personality, or manages to surprise, is the joy of creation. We’ve never left our passion behind for playing with colour palettes or for using digital art to draw one’s attention, and this has resulted in over 18 years of repeat customers, and a growing demand for our service throughout Sydney. Businesses come to us because we know what is takes to turn them into successful operations.

Having injected fresh creativity into established corporations, and having helped many new businesses build and develop their brand, we’re confident that Hopping Mad Designs has both the talent and the experience to create designs that truly deliver and help your business grow.

We attribute much of our success to a trusted creative partnership that has survived the test of time. With Joanna Basile as our Creative Director and Steven Waldberg as the Director of Business Development, we are fortunate to be led by a balanced partnership that pairs creative thinking with sharp business acumen and a wealth of internet marketing experience. The results for our clients are designs that are as artistic as they are relevant to achieving their business objective. We both know how to grow businesses and help them become successful.

Our Beginning

Originally a niche design agency, Hopping Mad Designs rapidly grew to include a team of web design, SEO, online marketing and graphic design specialists that both big and small business would turn to when they needed quality design solutions and help navigating and dominating the online environment.

With a team of qualified design and SEO professionals working in our agency, our clients can enjoy direct contact with their designer, and we can continue to ensure high-quality design work is delivered on time, on brief and on budget.

At Hopping Mad Designs, we pride ourselves on building strong, on-going relationships with our clients. While we have grown significantly, we’ve always maintained the focus and values of a small business at heart.

Both Jo and Steven remain a constant guiding presence in our studio—they remain committed to meeting every client, and still believe it is essential to really understand your needs, so at Hopping Mad Designs we don’t just meet, but exceed your expectations.
