We’re Studio 164a –
a small creative studio offering big value to your business.

At Studio 164a, we have two distinct areas of focus:

We help our clients make their big ideas a reality through logo, brand identity and website design.

We create high quality WordPress software. Our most recent creation is Charitable, a powerful fundraising plugin.


“Wes’ friendliness and professionalism during his work on our company’s re-branding made the whole experience simple and easy. His clear communication and collaborative approach also meant we could have plenty of input in the creative process. The end result was a beautiful website, complete with a new logo, and matching email signature, signage, Word and Powerpoint templates that perfectly reflect our business’ character and needs.”

— David Reside, Project Development, Cassinia


Logo & Brand Identity Design

Whether you’re just getting started or an established business in need of a refresh, we can develop a brand identity that represents what you’re all about and – most importantly – stands out amongst your competitors.

A brand identity project may include: Logo, Colour palette, Typography, Imagery, Pattern design, Social media graphics, Email newsletter, Stationery, Apparel, and more.

Website Design & Development

We design beautiful, easy to use, responsive websites. Our designs are driven by our clients’ goals, with a focus on usability and clear communication.

We’re proud members of the WordPress community, and we use WordPress exclusively for our website projects.



Charitable: A fundraising plugin for non-profits.

We built Charitable because we were tired of seeing non-profits use hosted fundraising platforms that charge hefty fees and strip them of the ability to brand and control their donation pages.

So we created and launched Charitable in 2015 as a feature-rich, affordable WordPress alternative. With Charitable, we won’t charge you any transaction fees for the donations you receive, and you can use the core Charitable plugin for free, forever. We support Charitable’s development through extension purchases, which add extra features.

Four years on, we still actively develop and support Charitable, which is trusted by over 10,000 non-profits all over the world.

Our story is of two guys born in the tropical South Pacific in the 80s, who became friends in Australia in the 90s, lived in a ramshackle share house in the 2000s and finally started Studio 164a in 2014.

Since then we have been helping startups, small businesses, community groups and non-profits – in Australia and around the world – to bring their ideas to life.
