We’d rather be someone’s shot of whiskey instead of everyone’s cup of tea.
Your business is unique, so your brand and website should be too. But with so many platforms and options on the web today, which is right for you? We specialize in partnering with brick-and-mortar service-based small businesses just like you who have been in business for years, building up a client base, establishing a credible quality reputation, and making a living, one client at a time. But now, you find yourself falling behind younger brands who have begun to take over the market simply by having a stronger online presence.
It’s our goal to make you look as professional online as you are in person, balancing the local competition, and helping you establish your leadership in your local market.
Together, we create a complete team. You with your industry experience and understanding of your client’s needs, and us with our blend of design, development, and digital marketing expertise.
Our clients range from custom home contractors in the Rockies of Colorado, financial advisors in the Bay Area of San Francisco, and a brand portrait photographer based on the island of Oahu, to high-end real-estate brokers in Florida and a jewelry designer who calls the tip of Maine home. While we may work with clients from all areas of industry and all over the map, one thing stays the same – our commitment to creating unique brand experiences, online or off, that fit your business and meet your client’s needs.
We may reside in the Rockies, but we work with small businesses all over the world.
Behind the name
So much more than just a drink order
While it might seem like the perfect beverage order, our name actually has absolutely nothing to do with drinks. As the lead designer, I (Julie Harris) deal with color psychology, utilizing the power of textures, tones, and colors to create a visual narrative and define a brand’s identity (I also have red hair so it does have a bit of a double meaning). Steve Harris, our lead developer, came from a career as an Army Medic where his formal job title was 68W (“Whiskey”). While now in a dramatically different professional role, Steve utilizes many of the skills he learned during his time in the service: communication, education, teamwork, and attention to detail. Hence – Whiskey & Red.
We do things differently
We don’t believe in keeping the “keys to the kingdom”. This is your business and it should feel like it. Every design decision is made with you in mind and the end goal of providing you with a platform that you can manage, maintain, and expand upon on your own, without a full-time technical support team. While we love to extend our working relationships with our clients post-project, we make education a priority every step of the way so that you can successfully run your online business with or without our continued assistance. But don’t worry. We’ll never leave you hanging and as long as you want us around, we’ll be there.

“We could not be happier with the work that they did for us. Julie is so organized and efficient. She laid out everything that was going to happen and made the process incredibly manageable for us. Steve came up with great solutions for how to structure the website and make it user-friendly for both us and our clients.
