Who We Are
Let's Get better ACquainted
The elevator pitch.
We're SECOND + WEST, a creative web studio specializing in building engaging online experiences for clients around the world through design, development, writing, and marketing. We truly care about client success, and build long-lasting relationships that guide any project from planning to launch to growth.
Who We Work With
We’re a professional, fun team who thrive off passion and care IMMENSELY about what we put out into the world.
We love working with people who are on a mission to create good in the world. Passion fuels what you do, which in turn inspires our work to bring your vision to the masses. We have a sweet spot for food, fashion, fitness, health, beauty, and design brands, from startups to global empires.
DESIGN TEAMS + AGENCIES
You're great at what you do, but need a partner to provide the rest. Collaboration is something we're pretty darn good at. We're available to join in on projects from the discovery phase to development and on-going support. Embed our entire team or just who you need to make some magic happen.
Founder • Technical Director
Danielle is our fearless leader and head web developer. With over 14 years of experience, she's built websites for large media companies, food startups, non-profits, professional athletes, and just about anyone in between. She sweats the small details and loves it when a client cries tears of joy over a launch party Skype meeting. When not in the office, you can find her cheering her daughter on at volleyball, practicing her skills in the kitchen, or fostering rescue pugs. Coffee is a no-no, but herbal and green teas are her jam.
Designer • Developer
Samantha's been fascinated by the web since her parents brought home their first family computer. She's been designing and building websites ever since. As a new mom, she spends her downtime with her little guy, husband, or lost in a game of World of Warcraft. Nerdy, yes, but we love her that way.
Work Hard, Play Hard, Be Nice
As much as we love the work that we do, we're also committed to living fulfilled lives. It keeps our team happy and energized so that when we're knee deep in your project, we're focused and on-point. We strive to build relationships based on mutual respect and honesty, and follow a core set of values on every project.
Communication and transparency can move mountains. We never take on work we can't deliver, and if we make a mistake, we speak up.
Trust is a two-way street and vital to any good relationship. You trust in our expertise when you hire us, and we work hard to keep it.
You don't always get what you pay for. Often times you get more. We don't do average and enjoy the opportunity to overdeliver.
We treat people how we want to be treated, and expect the same in return. No matter what your title, you're a person first and foremost.
