Web Architecture
& Design
"Now and then we had a hope that
if we lived and were good,
God would permit us to be pirates."

-Mark Twain

We make savvy websites for interesting companies or people.

Once upon a time we quit our jobs and signed up with Pyrates for 30 pieces of eight. We bought cutlasses, hired a parrot and stormed the 7 Seas in search of plunder... Uh.. no.. Wait. That's not right.

We love our jobs.

The truth is we quit our lame, crappy jobs and started building websites to pay the rent. Now, 6 years later, we operate as a Web Architecture Firm. We take the jobs that interest us, working with people who inspire us, and love every minute of it!

What do you mean by 'Web Architects' - Aren't you just web designers?

Web designers are pretentious snobs who spend all day in their mothers' basements making pretty pretty pictures. Plus, they smell funny. Web architects are manly men who aren't happy unless they're doing 4 different jobs at once while simultaneously charting a course between enemy vessels and making rude remarks about the questionable parentage of British Admiralty. Also, we smell great. Seriously. Ask anyone. Well, okay... Maybe not anyone..

We also do Drupal.

"Drupal? Wasn't s/he a drag queen in the nineties?" Uh.. No. Drupal is a web platform that enables you to maintain and update your web site with minimal assistance from a web professional. Thousands of sites are currently running on the Drupal platform as you read this now. Not every site is a good fit for a content management system like Drupal. We'd be happy to discuss it with you.

Are we expensive?

Yes. We require our clients to shower us in rubies and provide tap dancing Komodo Dragons to set the mood while we sip premium rum and code your website. However: We realize that sometimes interesting people have to work within interesting budgets, and we strive to work around billing obstacles wherever possible. We are especially passionate about helping great people escape the corporate rat race and start their own businesses. We are open to discussing special terms for the right company or person. Our standard rates are forty five dollars an hour for design work, and eighty five dollars an hour for work that requires coding.

We'd show you our work, but then we'd have to kill you.

But seriously - Our customers' brands are their own unique identities, and as such it would be rude to kiss and tell. Plus, they would sue us for violating our nondisclosure agreements. It's our intention that this site stand as an example of the kind of work we're capable of. That said, we're more than happy to show you our work in person. Give us a call at 757-412-5642 or contact us to set up a viewing and free initial consultation about your site.

We'd put more for you to read here, but really - This should be enough for you to decide whether you'd like to chat with us, and we know you're very busy. If you have the time and would like to read more, please consider visiting our blog.

If you like what you see, then give us a call or contact us to parley. We look forward to discussing your project!
