About Blackbird

Hello, my name is Adrian Stein.

I'm a seasoned web designer & developer with over ten years of real world experience building hand-crafted websites. I'm passionate about building great websites, and partner with clients across Australia to deliver high quality solutions to suit any specification. 

Blackbird Solutions is a lightweight web design studio based on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia. Our vision is simple - to efficiently deliver intelligent, scalable website solutions tailor-made for smart businesses. By combining a no-fuss attitude, methodical project planning, proven design principles, blazing-fast coding skills, and efficient communication, we're able to deliver high quality results which can cut out much of the heartache often involved in developing a website.

We aren't a big, bloated agency - so you can rest assured that you'll get great results without shelling out huge amounts of money for sky-high overheads, apathetic staff and poor communication. We pride ourselves in delivering high quality, hand-built solutions, and give thorough attention to detail to everything we do. We don't outsource our programming to India, or resell cookie-cutter templates for a quick profit. Ask any of our clients - we care about developing long-term relationships and striving for perfection in our work. It might sound old-fashioned - but we also care about something called "craftsmanship". At the heart of our identity is a desire to develop meaningful online strategies for our clients that deliver real business results in the long term.

My true passion lies in website coding, but I also enjoy being involved in design, ecommerce, content management, SEO and digital strategy. I enjoy working with XHTML, CSS, PHP, MySQL, Javascript, jQuery, Drupal, Wordpress, responsive & mobile web development, and lots of other cool things.

I'm also president of the Sunshine Coast Digital Association, the official industry body for web designers & developers on the Sunshine Coast. As well as representing the interests of local web professionals, SCDA facilitates skill sharing and social connection for the Sunshine Coast's many talented web industry professionals.

When I'm not tinkering on the web and making awesome digital stuff, you'll probably find me writing music or hanging out with my wife & two awesome kids in Maroochydore.

Feel free to keep poking around the website, make yourself a cup of tea, and relax. You might like to check out our website design services, see our website portfolio, or read our client testimonials.
