Sharp pixels and clean code, est. 2006

51bits is the moniker for the solo design outfit operated by me, Chris Sealey; a Sydney-based 29-year-old graphical user interface designer and front-end developer passionate about technology, health and minimalism as a lifestyle.


I have worked with over 130 startups, agencies, entrepreneurs and indie developers all over the world and am currently leading the design team at Healthshare.

Previously, I led design on Twine, helped establish Anomaly and shipped WillyWeather for iOS, Android and the Web. Among other side-projects, I made Hubbub, Stat and Gridlet. I am an advocate of remote work and distributed teams.

Graphic design, user experience and vanilla front-end technologies (HTML, CSS, JavaScript and SVG) are my main areas of focus. My work is used by millions of people every week and, importantly, I enjoy what I do.

I love meeting new people and solving complex problems with simple design. Get in touch if you would like to work together or just chat over coffee.
