Ruth the co-founder of Blink offers over 25 years of proven national and international experience.

Ruth started her freelance practice in 2000 as Ruth Hayden Design, then co-founded Blink Studio with Edward Trost in 2004.

Blink has worked with some of Australia's largest companies and dynamic small businesses. Over the years we have applied our experience and solved communication problems for clients in a dynamic market. 

Where we work from

Our clients told us that since the GFC they don't want to pay for the beautiful office and glitzy overheads – that all just feels 'too important' now. (We asked them – they told us – we listened).

So we ditched the office (formerly on Latrobe Terrace in Paddington), and custom built a studio next to our home in Bardon.  Find out about who you will work with here


My site was created in a matter of hours and not only do I personally think it looks terrific, but the great feedback I have already received, is a true reflection of their creativity and skill. Their website creation process is simple and their SKYPE training sessions and on-line tutorials are totally self-explanatory. I highly recommend Blink Websites.

__________________________________________________ Blink Websites have been instrumental in not only creating a website that I love, but also helping me create a company brand that has impact. After some false starts elsewhere, I’ve finally found a great team! They are very professional, creative and intuitive. One thing I love about their service, is that they take the time to get to know your business, so they can give you the best advice. You don’t feel like ‘just a number’. I was told about Blink, by a professional who has worked with them often, and who couldn’t say a negative thing about them! You couldn’t get a better reference!

__________________________________________________ From the very first contact with Blink Websites to our final website launch, we found Blink provided an outstanding service and a high level of attention to detail. Every question was answered quickly and they went above and beyond what we asked. The website they designed exceeded our expectations which made our launch extremely exciting. The feedback we have received has been fantastic. I would recommend Blink to any company (large or small) wishing to create or update a website.

__________________________________________________ Ruth Hayden is simply one of the best designers in Brisbane; she has re-branded my business and taken it to a level no other can match. My “business” is so fortunate to have met her. It’s true you get what you pay for, she is worth every penny. Ruth is hands-on. Someone who has guided me in the right direction without being pushy. Through this I learnt that if you are really serious about taking your business to new levels, then listen to her advice and just do it! Unfortunately many of us see this as expensive, but I see it as expensive - if I don’t use her. I am looking forward to a very exciting future.

__________________________________________________ Since commencing our relationship with Blink we have developed a strong waiting list of students for forthcoming years - a situation that previously was a serious challenge. This goal was our primary aim and the impetus to enlist the design and marketing consultancy skills of an agency preferably with branding experience. Thanks to Blink, Mt St Michael’s College now has the foundation for all marketing material to promote itself in the wider community and attract the right students to its services. This message is vital for the sustainability of our business.

__________________________________________________ I just wanted to say a huge thank you to all at Blink for the fantastic work that you produced for RE/MAX Australia. Blink took the global RE/MAX and RE/MAX collection brands and adapted them to work in an Australian market, which has been appreciated by franchisees universally. The standards set by Blink have given excellent market traction in national newspaper advertising as well as consistency across signage and collateral. Overall they have developed recognisable and cohesive brands that place RE/MAX as leaders in the Australian property market.

__________________________________________________ Blink Studio were very easy to deal with, were quick to understand our business and the market we wanted, and had a good grasp on the look and feel we wanted. We quickly had a fresh new design, a sharp look and I feel that, as a result of Blink’s work, we have positioned our business exactly where we wanted. They have created an excellent platform on which to further our marketing and branding activities.

__________________________________________________ In the early stages, Ruth worked with the senior management to describe the nature of the organisation going forward. Using these characteristics as a basis for the design and selection of the key branding identifiers, the challenges included accurately capturing our past and our future. I do not hesitate to recommend Ruth not only as an outstanding designer, but as someone who understands the purpose of design.

__________________________________________________ Blink Websites created a beautiful website for The Production House Events that is both aesthetically pleasing and user friendly. They worked closely with us to establish what our requirements and expectations were and worked hard at interpreting this into an online presence. The team at Blink Websites have a fantastic structure and protocols that allowed for open communication with us to view changes and updates as they were being made in real time. We highly recommend Blink Websites for their professionalism and creativity.

__________________________________________________ From their initial proposal through to delivering the final product Blink has been exceptional. Having worked with graphic design firms for over ten years, it is rare to find one firm who surpasses in all areas. Blink has achieved this.
