16toads Offers a wide variety of services all centering around web design and development. While you can argue that specialization is the key to success, we will argue that your web site is only as effective as your ability to get people to visit your URL. Therefore, we offer services that compliment your web presence and enhance your brand.
What people see when they land on your URL needs to inspire confidence in your product or services and generate enough curiosity to get them to click around. We design and build stylish (sometimes zany) and highly functional custom interfaces that balance user experience with brand requirements. We build all of our sites using CSS as the foundation and do our utmost to make the final result as accessible as possible while creating a web experience that the end-user will appreciate for it’s ease-of-use.
Need a CMS or shopping cart or hosting? Look no further. We will tailor your redesigned site to your specific needs and help you achieve your online goals. We will take your project from concept to launch - and then provide ongoing maintenance if you need it.
16toads has extensive experience developing content management systems using many of the most popular open source platforms available today. However, after extensive research and numerous implementations, our platform of choice is ExpressionEngine.

16toads Design was started as an illustration studio twelve years ago. We learned quickly how tough the business can be for newcomers and began to absorb every scrap of information we could about graphic design and this new-fangled web thingy. While illustration does not enjoy the popularity it used to in advertising, we have never lost our touch or our love of drawn communication ... Especially when it has a dollop of our signature humor!
From realism to cartoon, from oils and acrylics to pixels, illustration is the heart and soul of 16toads Design.
You only get one chance to make a good first impression, and we’ll wager that bikinis are an inappropriate sales tool for your product or service. A company’s brand image constitutes the whole of its most visible communication; it includes logo, package design, corporate literature, direct mail, email marketing, and web site.
Do you need a logo developed or a complete brand overhaul? We can create ideal offline promotions or an ad campaign to support your new web site.
People may not read any more, but you shouldn’t let that fact prevent you from covering your bases.
