About

We’re a small, but busy digital content consultancy and training provider.  Based in northern Victoria, we work with clients around Australia. We’ve been in business since 2006.

Our 'team' of one

4 Syllables is now a one-person, home-based operation (after a ‘tree change’ at the end of 2014).

Dey Alexander

Hire us and you’ll be working with Dey Alexander. Dey has worked on digital projects since 1989 when she ran a bulletin board system called Euphoria. Her first digital content project was Philosophy in Cyberspace. Published on gopher, then on the web in 1993, it was also published in two print editions.

Starting out as a developer, Dey’s focus soon shifted from making websites to making them work well. She eventually led a small user experience design team at Monash University in the early 2000s.

Since 2006, Dey’s work has focused on digital content.  She’s a big fan of simplicity and plain language.

Dey is a co-founder of the Web Accessibility Network for Australian Universities, and a member of the Information Architecture Institute, and the Computer-Human Interaction Special Interest Group.
