Made In Iowa

Made In Iowa

We live, work, and play right here in Iowa. We love living here in the heartland of America. We also love learning about Iowa small business and their stories. In fact, it's one of the things we like most. When we take on a new project we spend a fair amount of time on the discovery phase where we learn all about a client's organization and their story.

And Just Like That… It’s June

And Just Like That… It’s June

When we were contacted by the Executive Director of the Aldridge Early Learning Center in East Moline about updating their website, we jumped at the chance to work with them. We had worked with a few nonprofit organizations before but never with a Child Care facility. We asked a lot of questions and took a tour of the facility and then went to work creating their new website. We think it turned out great and we enjoyed the process.

Start The New Year With a New website

Start The New Year With a New website

Some people like the snow - some not so much. Here at Team 218 digital design we think it's perfect for web design. In a way, the winter weather of the last few days seems to bring with it a sense of purpose. It lends itself to some distraction free website design sessions. It's funny how time slips away during these "deep-focus" website development marathons.
