Nice to meet you!
I’m Shawn, a 15-year creative professional and award-winning web designer. I’ve worked hand-in-hand as a marketing consultant, creative director, and designer with major Fortune 100 and Fortune 500 companies… but between you and me, I’ve always had a big heart for the underdog.
In 2012, I made the decision to put my skills and experience to work for the greater good. We packed up shop, set up a small office, and set out to change the world for growing small business owners.
Since then, our team has grown… but our intent has remained the same, and our values have only grown more focused and dedicated.
We believe in your ability to succeed. That is our North Star.
Here’s how we make it happen.
We believe in paying it forward. Quid pro quo is for douchebags, and we don’t keep score. If someone needs help, we help.
We believe in being 100% authentic. We don’t ask people to change who they are, and we don’t hide who we are. Whatever makes you different, hold it up to a megaphone. Use it.
We believe Mondays are sacred ground. If you can learn to love challenges and lean into the hard times, you can do anything.
We believe it’s okay to be quirky. Our team includes all kinds of brains – techies, artists, night owls, bookish research nerds, hyper-organized task slingers, and a window-writing savant or two. Sometimes genius comes with quirks, and we celebrate that.
We believe in the bold elegance of simplicity. Too many “designers” get caught in the trap of adding more. We believe in including what is necessary to accomplish your goal, making it strong, and cutting away everything else. Distractions are trash. Our work performs.
We believe nothing should ever be half-assed. We never, never settle. We’re not successful unless our clients are, so we make sure that our work commands the attention you deserve.
We believe in laughing at ourselves. We also believe in checking egos at the door, apologizing when necessary, and calling each other out if we’re being an asshole. We’re the first to take responsibility of any situation, because it gives us the power to make it right.
We believe in fearless, straightforward communication. People come to us because they value our experience and ability to take them where they can’t go alone. We cut to the core of everything we say and do – politely and with compassion, but without even a hint of bullshit.
We believe that passion and integrity are things you can’t teach. There are no classes in How to Give a Damn. You either care or you don’t… and those who do deserve to win, underdogs included.
We believe in following a strict FBNA policy. (Free beer, no assholes.)
We believe that the numbers are the oracle. Design without data is mere decoration, and it’s not going to get you anywhere. We’re problem-solving doctors, not fancy photoshop monkeys.
We believe that data without interpretation is for cowards. It’s one thing to collect data, but it’s even more essential to be able to distill actionable direction from measured results. We go out on that limb and give you the low-down.
We believe that information without execution is useless. Too many people hide behind the excuse of learning. Invest in yourself, jump off the damn cliff, and we’ll help you build your wings on the way down.
We believe every client is our most important. Project costs and budgets are solely a logistical matter, and they have zero bearing on how we treat our clients. If you’re one of ours, you’re our top priority.
Teamwork makes the dream work.
You want to know our secret to success? We invest in our people. We trust our people. We find the best brains, the ones that are experts in their respective areas, and then we get out of their way.
No one person can be great at everything, which is why hiring a team like ours beats a single freelancer every single time.
A web design company’s work is only as good as its people. These are some of ours.

Tired of trying it
You’re not alone. We’ve taken hundreds of people from where you are *right now* to the next level in their success (and beyond). If you’re ready to stop the struggle and call in the troops, we’d love to jump on a quick call to see if we’re a great fit.
