We love making things look good
We’re designers and communicators first. We learn about you, your business, target market and goals, and wildest dreams. Where are you at? Where are you going? How will you get there? Who’s going with you? We use this understanding to design and deliver a visually appealing, easy to navigate website that fits you and your audience. Learn about our website packages.
And building sites that work for our clients
We leverage our experience and proven, powerful tools — the WordPress content management system, Genesis WordPress theme framework, and premium plugins to develop a solid online presence that you or your team can update. See samples of our work.
Our favorite clients are kind, clear, curious, and compassionate. We like happy clients and guarantee your satisfaction.
We believe simple, elegant websites are best
While lots of bells & whistles may be tempting, they can distract from you and your message, and make your site painful to view on a mobile device, update and maintain. You want a site that represents you in the best possible light, but you also want a site that plain works. It looks great when someone browses it from their phone at a coffee shop. It accurately reflects your brand, your images look great and it’s easy-to-read and navigate. These are the kind of sites we design and implement. Check our website features page.

Kind and calm, studio assistant Sophy Johnston has experience working in nonprofits and as a reference librarian. She’s smart and detail oriented. When not working on our client’s websites, you might find her walking the beach in Indianola with her two energetic kids.
We work in a studio in the woods
We’re located in a rural beach community, Indianola, WA, just a short drive and ferry ride from downtown Seattle. The studio is surrounded by a forest of big trees, honeybee hives and a garden filled with native plants. The environment is an inspiration. Of course, there’s also high-speed internet access and a back-up generator.
