You deserve to have a web partner in your corner

A Team You Can Rely On

A Solution That Makes An Impact

Your Success is Our Mission

An average agency simply takes direction from a client even if they aren’t an expert in web design and development. This approach often leaves companies with inadequate and underperforming websites that do not meet their objectives. At First + Third we do not start projects with tasks- we start relationships with business objectives. As a team, we design and build best in class websites; investing ourselves in our clients’ goals as if they are our own. Because when our clients succeed, we do too.

A NOTE FROM OUR FOUNDER

How I Got Into This Business & Why I Care So Much About Your Website

I have spent most of the last 15 years working in web development and the one thing I know for sure is that businesses spend a lot of money building websites that just don’t work. They are slow & difficult to navigate, losing a visitor’s interest quickly. This frustrates me because poorly designed sites are making it difficult for businesses to succeed and I know that it doesn’t have to be this way.

In 2003, I set out to bring a different and more hands on approach to business leaders, hoping to partner with them to understand their organizations and how their websites can help them achieve success. In doing so, I formed a fully remote agency to help leaders solve complex problems with well designed and executed websites. It was my goal to provide businesses with a partner that they could rely on to get it done right, a team they could trust to have their best interest in mind, and a solution that would make the most impact on their overall business.

Having had the privilege of working with such incredible organizations as Sheryl Sandberg’s LeanIn.org and Facebook has allowed me to see how much fun it is to take someone’s vision and turn it into reality. And it’s even more rewarding when the deliverable is something that makes such a positive impact.
