We build websites that are easy to customize and easy to maintain. For us and for you.
We have been designing and programming websites since the day we opened our doors back in 2001. Our platform of choice is Drupal, a widely-used open source content management system. Compared to other platforms, we find that Drupal excels in flexibility, customization and editing.
With Drupal, the websites we design are built for the long haul. While many of our website clients have adapted, updated, refreshed or changed content over time, as they ought to, this did not require starting from scratch.
We are able to adapt the structure to specific client needs, and clients love the freedom that comes with the option to edit their own content based on the needs of business day-to-day. For instance, our client, the Wisconsin Academy, is able to manage 90% of their content-rich website on their own, which features a quarterly magazine, conferences, gallery events and more.
What makes Drupal a great choice:
- Easy to edit
- Easy to customize
- Extremely flexible
- Built for the long-haul
- Fast and secure
- Well supported
- Mobile ready
- SEO friendly
Starting with the right platform is only part of the solution when it comes to a complete website project.

A note about SEO…
All of that is great stuff, but with all the information out there, and a great website in hand, how do you get noticed? Simple SEO principals are built into in all of the websites we create for clients. We design with the core principals and functions of good SEO in mind. We are not SEO experts, however, so if escalating your site to the top spot is key to your success, we can recommend an SEO expert in our area and collaborate to meet your goals.
