Go Headless Without Losing Your Head

Headless is about using the best tools for the job when one-size-fits-all solutions like Shopify templates, Wordpress or page builders are no longer enough.

We help businesses move to Headless Commerce and Headless CMS using leading technologies like Next.js, Sanity.io and Shopify to create beautiful and blazing-fast websites, unlocking limitless possibilities while allowing you to keep the best parts of the tools you already use and love.

Elevate Your Website with Cutting-Edge Technologies

As businesses grow and evolve, so do their needs. Out-of-the-box solutions like Shopify templates or Wordpress may no longer suffice. This is where Headless comes in, offering the scalability and flexibility to take your website or eCommerce store to the next level. At Howl Studio, we don't believe in being a jack of all trades. Instead, we focus on mastering a select few technologies and tools, ensuring we deliver the best in what we do. These are the frameworks, technologies, and tools we specialize in:

What we do

We are deeply passionate about web development and design, with a particular focus on Headless Commerce and Headless CMS.

We consider ourselves an extension of your team, collaborating to create the best possible website for your business. Don't have a design team? No problem! We're more than happy to provide our design expertise. Already have a development team but need some additional support? We're ready to assist. Our ultimate goal is to support your growth by leveraging the skills and technologies we excel in.

No templates, no page-builders, no shortcuts. Just beautiful, blazing-fast websites that are crafted line-by-line and built to scale and grow with you.

Web Development

We craft websites using cutting-edge technologies and frameworks. With a focus on Headless Commerce and CMS, we leverage the power of Next.js, Shopify, and Sanity.io to bring your vision to life.

UX/UI Design

We believe in creating designs that are not just visually appealing, but also intuitive and super-fast. Our team collaborates with yours to ensure an optimal user experience for your customers no matter what device they use.

Data Analytics & Business Intelligence

Understanding your customers and their interaction with your website is crucial. We assist in building your own Data Warehouse and Consumer Data Platform (CDP), enabling you to make data-driven decisions and provide a personalised experience to your customers.

Core Web Vitals

We obsess over performance so you don't have to. We'll ensure your website is optimised for Core Web Vitals, improving your SEO and providing a better user experience for your customers.

Technical SEO

We deliver all the technical SEO tasks out-of-the-box on all our projects so you can stand out on search engines and grow your organic channel.


We've run complex businesses with many moving parts so we know a thing or two about automating and scaling business processes. From marketing, to operations to sales automation, we can help you streamline your operations and increase efficiency.

Why work with us

Hi, I'm Rod Dutra, the founder of Howl Studio. We're a boutique web design and development agency based in the beautiful Noosa Hinterland, on the Sunshine Coast of Queensland, Australia. We work with scale-up businesses from all corners of the globe.

With a background as a seasoned entrepreneur and former Chief Technology & Product Officer of a Fintech Startup for the past 8 years, I've combined my expertise with a passion for design, user experiences and creativity to create Howl Studio. What sets us apart from larger agencies is the unique opportunity we offer our clients to work directly with a senior and business-minded developer - that's me!

In addition to my expertise, I also collaborate with a network of talented design partners as well as others with highly specialised skills that our clients may need. This allows us to bring a diverse range of skills and perspectives to our clients' projects, ensuring they get the very best results.

Everything we build is entirely yours, but we're not just about bringing your vision to life. We can also manage the end-to-end lifecycle of your website and/or ecommerce store, providing ongoing support to help your online presence grow and evolve. Think of us as an extension of your team, working alongside you to achieve your goals and take your business to the next level.
