About Our Process
The Big Idea.
Passing the smell test.
It’s funny. The same realtor who would never take his clients around in anything but an immaculate Lexus is perfectly happy with a site they built themselves with Dreamweaver. The same attorney whose lobby is a showcase of accolades will let their website be an archaic testament to the design styles of 2009.
While 2009 doesn’t seem too long ago, in terms of technology and design, we’re talking light years.
Pretty websites sell for the same reason pretty everything else sells. Would you trust a business more if they looked successful and appeared to be at least able to put together a nice–looking website? Would you pay more to work with a company that looked like they really have it together?
Nothing succeeds like success.
Our Core Values.
Great design for any budget.
Many website design companies are founded by people who are passionate about design or passionate about programming.
We’re first and foremost passionate about value. Followed closely by design. Then programming. Well, programming is a necessary evil and is going to make us all bald prematurely, even the girls. But as you can see from our work, we’re not half bad at it.
Don’t reinvent the wheel if you don’t have to.
Leverage existing code, design, photos and illustration on behalf of our clients to create great work as efficiently as possible.
Our philosophy, in short, is to start with a quality theme, build your dream site, and not mess it up. That’s not to say we don’t love designing. We’re in business to make great websites at great prices.
Here’s the Story
Of a man named Isaac.
The founder of Seattle Web and Design, Isaac, was once Director of Marketing at a law firm, where, like any business, it was important that the website convey competence and success. When it came time to redesign their site though, all the local web design firms were either too expensive or weren’t offering much in the way of site design. Sound familiar?
Later, Isaac discovered that you can actually build a really nice website pretty affordably by leveraging various resources, and Seattle Web & Design was born. Never again will a perfectly good small or medium business have to settle for a so–so site.
Risk is the enemy.
If you’re shopping for a creative service, you usually don’t know what you’re getting until after you’ve paid for it. Since you don’t pay us anything until after you’ve chosen a template, that’s not really an issue with us. Your site will look a lot like the template.
Also, you don’t make your last payment (usually half of the total) until the work is completed to your satisfaction.
Here’s our guarantee: We guarantee you’ll be surprised at how much site we can build on your budget.
