Understandably, this is our most frequently asked question and the hardest to answer without more information. Pricing a web site without a basic understanding of one's needs would be like a contractor quoting you the price of a house without giving him or her any information about what's entailed.

In certain cases "out-of-the-box" web sites are an ideal solution for one. If you're looking for a quick, automated, highly templated web site that requires little to no customization then perhaps some of those services are right for you.

Frankly, the biggest stumbling block in the web development process is content. No matter how well-designed, functional or cool a web site is, if there's no "there" there it's time and money not well spent.

Yes, absolutely. A number of our projects come to us with either a graphic design template or designer attached. We play well with others and enjoy collaborative projects. Good design matters to us and we work hard at helping a client realize their visual design goals and dreams whether they're created by us or someone else.
Yes, we do that. Web site add-ons and content mangement system integration are two of our specialities. We've also created full-fledged, robust online communities for organizations that integrate seamlessly into their current web site.
Actually, no. We work from an office between Harvard and Central Squares in Cambridge, Massachusetts. However, we were founded in (and frequent ) a Maine farm house - thus the name.
