Ready for impact?
When your audience needs your help, they go to your website.
We make sure it's ready.
Website project overwhelm is real
You’ve been doing some serious research and have all the checklists and ideas, do’s, don’ts, must haves, never haves, the lingo, above-the-folds, landing pages, funnels, icons and social proofs and now your head is literally spinning!
And don’t even get us started on those “best practices.” Sigh
We feel you, it’s time to make that happen.

“You ramp up our projects to what I could have never envisioned! …you helped me build new strategies…you exceed the expectations…”
~Lynn Hand, Executive Director, FEC
we solve your problems
We’ve been doing this a long time (shout out to our founder, Amanda Ross, who built her first website in 2001 and started this company in 2013). If any of this sounds like you, we can help:
It's time to claim your rightful place in the digital world – with a web agency that truly knows the difference.
I don't even know what to say... I'm crying right now!
“…brilliant, highly responsive, amazingly creative and innovative in (their) approach to design, functionality and brand.”
~Grace Churchill, Founder, LeadersOutloud
Here's how it works...
Our process, honed since 2013, eliminates those worries by ensuring we “get” you before we create.
We gather information to fully comprehend your needs—not just a surface-level understanding, but a holistic view of your goals, audience, brand, and the impact you want to make.
Why does it matter?
Because without knowing where you want to go, who you serve, and why, we can’t create a space that speaks to them and helps you achieve your vision.
"Design that forgets people, gets forgotten."
Sure, we could whip up a pretty website that you feel somewhat content with, but we want to BLOW YOUR FREAKING SOCKS OFF!
We want to create a space that embodies you and speaks to your audience, compelling them to take action. We weave visuals and stories to help you make the impact you’re striving for.
But first things first—before we start designing, we research, gather, plan, strategize, understand, and devour your organization like a scrumptious breakfast. Only then can we move forward and create something that TRULY works.
Our 6-step process takes 8-24 weeks, depending on your project size:
CUSTOM PROPOSAL & AGREEMENT
We'll develop a tailored web design proposal within 72-hrs (M-F). Upon signing the agreement, we'll schedule your project.
CONTENT STRATEGY & MESSAGING
We'll create a content and messaging plan to engage your audience, ensuring your website effectively conveys your brand's story.
PROJECT SETUP & WIREFRAMING
After setting up your project space with branding elements, we'll design visual layouts for all main pages and establish consistent branding.
DEVELOPMENT & QUALITY ASSURANCE
With a solid foundation in place, we'll bring your vision to life. And, we'll perform quality assurance to ensure a smooth user experience.
LAUNCH, TRAINING & SUPPORT
After launch your website on your domain we always provide 30 days of support for minor changes and adjustments as needed.
Love the look and feel. Love it!
“…amazing web designer…smooth and easy. Thanks for creating my amazing new website! I absolutely love it!”
~Leslie Quinsay, Author
Our website design projects aren’t run of the mill. We look at all aspects of your organization goals, brand, and audience to create a space that “works” for you.
Here’s a few of the things we look at for all projects:
Some wicked-good clients:
Learning Management System & Membership
Problem: Live educational events that the Family Education Centre (FEC) held were generating a very low turnout, their LMS wasn’t working, and their website had no brand voice. Their capacity was maxed out. Their website had multiple errors. They were frustrated with technology partners and were scared to trust anyone.
Solution: Trust was built through open, honest discussions and by doing what we said we were going to do – every time. We moved them to be fully online with 20+ engaging online courses integrated into a learning management system with member levels, digital resources (podcast, tip-sheet downloads, and more), detailed reporting plus updated branding and messaging.
Outcome: The FEC made a 68% bigger impact with substantial gains in capacity and future scalability.
ONLINE KNOWLEDGE RESOURCES & CRITICAL FORMS
Problem: Heart House Hospice (HHH) had online resources in too many places; it was confusing and hard to find the right tool. Paperwork was also being handled multiple times in an inefficient manner. They felt “messy” and overloaded.
Solution: A new knowledge-sharing website was developed that allows users to easily find the right resources, quickly. Crucial intake forms with sensitive information were rebuilt digitally to create a secure and efficient process for the user to submit critical details and for the HHH team to access it in their system quickly.
Outcome: The team LOVE having their forms integrated perfectly with their process flow and the capacity it has given HHH to redirect them to other responsibilities. Users are finding what they need without confusion and are coming back again and again.
Oh...We love being "extra"!
The sky is the limit
We have no idea why “being extra” became such a bad thing, cause we’re all about it! We believe that every project is a precious shiny gem that need different treatments to make it radiate in all its glory.
