read: why you should hire us
We love making. We love designing. We love developing. Oh, and we love each other.
We're a design and development team that's head-over-heels enamored with what we do. What does this mean to you? It means that every minute detail of your finished product will be tended to. We take pride in being pixel perfect.
Do you have a dream you want to realize? How about a website that needs some tender lovin'? Perhaps your business identity needs a makeover? Hire us, we'll make your business more beautiful and your vision a reality. Most importantly, we'll have fun doing it.
All Bedd websites and print work are 100% original and designed from scratch. We don't believe in templates.
We want you to be happy with the design. This means we welcome input and critique from you during the design process. We will sit down with you and discuss your vision before we begin and you'll be asked for approval at key points. Your finished product will be something you'll be proud to have been a part in the creation of.
A bit about Becky
Born in San Diego, she up and moved to San Francisco 7 years ago on whimsical search for a more creative existence. Formally educated in interior design, she later discovered she preferred print design, web design, and jewelry design. Making pretty things makes her most happy and she spends most of her time doing just that.
Every single website needs a developer. Nothing can run without the development. What we strive for at Bedd is to never make you notice the development. We want it to be a seamless integration of the design and yourself. The biggest compliment somebody can give us is to go to a site and never even notice that they're using it. When there is that familiarity and knowing how to do everything without even trying, then we have succeeded.
