We are a mature, hard working, innovative, and competitive team that likes to take on difficult projects and take care of customers. Our approach to solving problems is creative, yet practical. We aren’t very interested in following others, but we do understand that we have a lot to learn from others. We don’t have a west coast or east coast sort of culture, but we’re pretty sure those folks would appreciate our approach anyway. We aren’t offended when accused of having a “Nebraska” culture. If a team member comes to work wearing flip flops, it’s probably because it is really hot outside, she isn’t meeting with a client that day, and the “boss” is too busy helping another customer to make a big deal out of it. We’re probably just realists that way.

Kelsi is the Operations Manager. She is responsible for creating the wireframes and designs for the websites we create.

In addition to web design Kelsi also does front-end development and client-side coding. Her design skills are also excellent for print projects such as logo design, billboard design, and brochures.
Kelsi likes being able to switch between a variety of tasks. In particular, website mockups and recreating the look of those designs with code. It’s very satisfying.
