Simple. Useable. Attractive. We create web sites that are visually captivating, use current technologies, are compliant with web standards, meet your brand requirements and are useful to your customers. And, we are unassailably honest. We will never sell you on a solution that does not fit your needs.
We get asked this constantly ... “16toads” was derived from our lucky number and an old nickname. People remember it and, in the end, that’s all that matters.

We are a creative studio that collaborates with other independent designers, programmers and professionals to share projects and ideas. Our "open" collective allows us to use the perfect talent for each job; this results in the best, most cost-effective and purpose-driven visual solutions for the web, multimedia, and print productions - without the burden of excessive overhead costs and convoluted bureaucracy common among large agencies.
While we constantly strive to improve our services, Our philosophy has always remained constant: Remain small, produce exceptional work, and provide superior customer service by maintaining a direct link between our clients and our creative team. 16toads is commited to one thing: Excellence. We will work hard to make your design experience a pleasurable one.
We realize that potential clients have a multitude of choices when it comes to finding the "right" designer or design studio for their project(s). We also understand that value is a balance between price, quality, and service.
There is no shortage of designers who will over-promise in order to land a job, and there are plenty of potential clients who simply do not take their businesses seriously enough to weigh the potential risks of NOT working with a professional. 16toads is not about fancy sales pitches or promising more than we can feasibly deliver. We will work with you to create a custom solution that exceeds your expectations.
We appreciate clients who value their businesses enough to find the best creative partner ... and you can rest assured that, when you work with 16toads, you will be getting our very best.
