About

We’re a digital content consultancy and training provider, in business since 2006.  We work with clients around Australia.

Our team

4 Syllables is led by Dey Alexander who has been working in digital for 30 years.

Dey’s first foray into the digital world was in 1989 when she ran a bulletin board system called Euphoria. Her first digital content project was Philosophy in Cyberspace. Published on gopher in 1991, and 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 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, universal design, and plain language.

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