Hello. I am Lochie Axon.

HTML5 Developer, Designer and 2D Animator aiming to create interactive projects.

Web Design

I aim for clean, minimalistic and usable layouts and keep myself in the loop for design trends without sacrificing the quality of a users experience.

HTML5 Development

I have a passion for animation and have plenty of hands-on experience with large agencies in creating banners ranging from standard projects to Rich Media for DoubleClick Studio or Sizmek.

Front-end Build

I love making interactive projects, which is why I build websites that look great on any device. Check out below some projects I've worked on.

Made Establishment

MAdE Establishment is a dynamic collection of the best restaurants in Melbourne, including The Press Club, Hellenic Republic, Mama Baba and Gazi. It's headed by a group of forward thinking restaurateurs, including renowned chef George Calombaris.

I worked with Thirst Studios and MAdE to create a suite of simple elegant websites that integrate with an online booking system. Our solution focussed on what users actually need from a restaurant website, and supported MAdE's social media strategy.

Community Hubs

The National Community Hubs Program seeks to improve the language, literacy and learning outcomes of often-isolated migrant parents and their pre-school children. The program was delivered in partnership with the Centre for Community Child Health at The Royal Children’s Hospital and the Murdoch Childrens Research Institute.

I worked with Thirst Studios on this project and our challenge was to design a system that would encourage an audience with low-tech ability, and limited resources to disseminate information and encourage peer-to-peer networking & learning. We combined clever back-end technology with a clean, intuitive interface design that supports users through each step of setting up, managing and developing their community hub.

Jean Hailes - Anxiety

Jean Hailes for Women’s Health is a national not-for-profit organisation that ‘translates’ academic, evidence-based research into positive practical health outcomes for Australian women. In 2013, Jean Hailes approached Thirst to develop a site dedicated to addressing worry, anxiety and anxiety disorders in women of all stages of life, with the view to assisting and promoting good mental health.

I worked with Thirst Studios to create this information-rich site to encourage users to learn about the causes of their anxiety, explore information and find the tools relevant to them, in a ‘safe’ onlne environment. We responded by providing multiple pathways for users to find content – by lifestage or level of anxiety – and coupled this approach with a clean, simple design and clear calls to action, ensuring women can find the help and advice they need when they need it most.

Awkward Skateboards

I spend my spare time designing skateboard graphics and branding for my own company. Having custom boards and clothing printed, mostly for myself but also for whoever else enjoys the style that I like, it is a personal project after all.

If you like my vibe and need graphics for your company you should definitely hit me up


Every so often I like to animate short cartoons, most of the time for challenges given by LoopdeLoop, a monthly animation contest.

My animations have been noted as "cute", "adorable", "playful" and other wonderful things, and you can see for yourself the style that I put into my characters and timing.

Ghost - Interactive music

Ghost is an interactive music piece conceptualized by Andrew Huang.

Ghost was selected by panelists and a public vote as the winner of the American Express Room For Thought program, giving Huang the opportunity to work with Metric singer Emily Haines to develop the piece as an art installation.

My part of this project was to design the interaction, layout and visuals of the projects interactive website.
