WEB DESIGN

10+ years of experience in the web world and now our primary focus. Design and front-end development for both static (html) and dynamic (content-management system) sites with features such as ecommerce, art portfolios, marketing tools, blogs, calendars, slideshows, and social media integration. The goal is to find and implement solutions that best fit your needs. We can provide custom designs that make your website unique or use existing templates for the styling framework. We create websites that work because the code is clean, the layout is uncluttered, and the aesthetics are contemporary.

WordPress is one of our specialties: configuration, customization, and training.
