Website Designer Julian LesekHi, My name is Julian Lesek and I am founder of Webafest and I enjoy helping small businesses grow their online presence.

I live in the small city of Devonport, Tasmania and like to create websites that help Tasmanian businesses have an online presence to grow their business. I often write content on my blog to help people understand the different aspects and latest trends of website development. I like to answer peoples questions relating to how they can improve their own website to increase conversions, so ultimately they can improve their revenue.

I got started learning how to develop websites at the TAFE Tasmania College (Devonport Campus), where I earn’t a certificate IV in (Website Design) and a Certificate IV in (Networking). Throughout each course I learn’t about developing a websites front-end through to understanding  how the computer hardware works. By gaining an understanding of the bigger picture of the web development industry, I’m now able to help provide solutions to local businesses. The website development skillset set I bring to the table are HTML 5, CSS3, Javascript and PHP. Each project that I perform follows a logical step-by-step website design process which will produce an outcome for each client. I enjoy sport and fitness and write about running on blog Chaserunners.
