I'm Ian McIlwraith,

And I'm working to make the web a more beautiful place.

I believe in building websites different. Instead of taking months to deliver a lackluster product, I work to exceed expectations by building a custom website within a few short weeks. Not only are my websites built quickly, but they’re also built on some of the fastest web hosting available on the market today.

My Design Philosophy

Featured Website

Lael Homes

Lael Homes provides clients with complete home renovation, interior design, and custom home building services. Their goal with the website was to display their work in a clean, elegant manner that reflects the quality craftsmanship of their work.

Website Design

Website design is a comprehensive process that involves everything from the actual design of the website to the implementation of hosting, domain, and various services.

Each website starts with either a pre-made template or a completely custom design, based entirely on your needs. From there, photos, copy, and graphics are added. Then, the design is tweaked until the site is done — all while you’re giving input on the site during development.

Once it’s done and you give the final go-ahead, the website is pushed live on an existing or new domain name.

Website Maintenance

If website upkeep isn’t your thing, then I am happy to offer monthly website maintenance. This service involves regular software updates, spot edits, and anything else that needs a quick change — billed either hourly or at a fixed rate month-to-month.

I recently worked with Ian to develop a new website for my client. He is a great listener who understood their unique needs. Working with him was seamless. He is detail-oriented, efficient, and the consummate professional. The website Ian designed surpassed all expectations we had, and my clients are absolutely thrilled. I’ve recommended him several times since we started working together and will continue to do so. I have been so impressed with Ian, I have even hired him to do my own websites!

The Torchlighters

Ian McIlwraith did a fantastic job on our recent website redesign and upgrade. He worked directly with us to hear our vision and then create a site that is not only beautiful, but will also help our customers and potential customers connect to our products. Ian is knowledgable, responsive, intuitive, organized and professional, and he gets the job done in a timely manner. We are thrilled with the outcome and commend Ian’s work to others looking for a pain-free website design and implementation experience with excellent results!

About Me

Hello! I'm Ian McIlwraith.

What started with a basic website for a local school almost seven years ago turned into years of building beautiful, responsive websites for businesses of all sizes. I work hard to ensure that expectations are exceeded and that all my clients have a website that will serve them well for years to come.

I believe in doing the right thing every time, for every client. I quote all my projects fairly, taking into account the unique needs of each project. I also believe that if you pay for a product or service, you should own it. Unlike other agencies, I don’t host your website in my name — instead, everything is registered under your name and you have all the tools and knowledge to use those services.

If you want to talk and see if we’d be a good fit for each other, then just give me a call at 336-582-1000.
