Iowa Web Design Blog

We pack years of experience into our Iowa Web Design Blog. We’ve seen quite a bit over the years – both good and not-so-good. We write about a wide variety of things and hopefully you’ll find something of interest here. If you have a topic you’d like to see explored here, please let us know.

We welcome your comments and are always happy to discuss and questions or problems you may have. Thanks for reading!

We Had a Blast On This One

We Had a Blast On This One

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.

Perfect Weather… For Web Design

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.
