Who We Are
We are a small business, owned and operated by Adrian Hoppel, a professional web designer and deveoper who has been custom-building commercial websites since 2002.
Our team is made up of a group of highly skilled professionals, and the way we work is maybe a little different than traditional web design studios in glossy, glassy, high-rise offices. We are a distributed team, working from co-working locations and private offices all over the place. We use the latest technology to collaborate, and meet at really cool coffee shops when we need to.
We keep our overhead costs low and our carbon footprint small. We are nimble, efficient, and deliver results — just like our websites.
We are passionate about design and technology, about being socially, ethically, and environmentally aware in everything we do, and about the seemingly rare art of building something right the first time and standing behind our work. Many people we work with are local to Philadelphia, although we have satisfied clients throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, Europe, Africa, Asia, South America, and Australia. There are no borders on the internet.
You Pay What You Think is Fair for Your Website
Web design here is handled differently than most other places. It’s crucial that your website works, that it delivers results, and that it does not quickly become obsolete. And it is vital that you pay a fair price for it.
Here the latest technologies, like CSS grid, are integrated with rock-solid platforms like WordPress and Genesis, to make sure your website is secure, stable, and cutting-edge. The final design of your website is hand-coded to explicitly tell your story. And the latest color and typography theories, combined with the current design trends and best practices, as well as accessibility and privacy guidelines, are the DNA of every project.
And pricing is controlled by you.
First, you’ll receive a detailed proposal with a timeline and a range of costs for your website. And then we will collaborate with you until we end up with a website you love. We will build it using the latest and best platforms available. Finally, you’ll pay us any amount within that range you feel is fair.
If you have a website project you need help with, we’d love to hear from you.
