Leadership and Our Team

We have a pretty simple recipe for cooking up a great staff:

  • One-third strategists
  • One-third digital marketers
  • One-third web designers

Can we brag a little? This is a top-notch in-house group of design and technology professionals. We all share a passion for creating functional and useful web sites and applications.

Our staff is locally based in Shorewood, Wisconsin. Our office space supports a great deal of activity. Each week developers meet with a group of their peers and review code for their projects. Designers share ideas and the latest in web design techniques. We also have numerous events for clients including supplemental training, learn @ lunch sessions and user group meetings.
