About Us

We are a web communications company with offices in Melbourne and Sydney. We've been working with the web for a long time, some of us from the beginning. Through this experience, we noticed how hard it is to find web companies that specialise in strategy and content – two of the most important elements of a successful and sustainable website. We created Weave Web Communications to fill this gap.

The core team...

Susan Cowan

Director / Strategist

Susan is the director and founder of Weave. She is a content strategist with a background in visual design, IT, communication and business. Susan started her career as a programmer – trying to make technology work better. Realising she was much more interested in making technology easier to use, she moved on to interface design and tech writing. Her epiphany, that content was key to usability, came in the early 2000s. She soon became a content-focused information architect. Tired of working solo, Susan founded Weave in 2009, the same year Kristina Halvorsen published Content Strategy for the Web, and so found a name for this content focus. Weave has been a content strategy business ever since.
