Burlington VT Website Designers: Web Design the Vermont Way

Dave Gibson

Udderly Awesome Since 1997

Having run a website development company in Burlington, Vermont since 1997 I’m used to seeing a lot of weird stuff… including the occasional flannel-clad bovine coder. Keep Vermont Weird? Done. 

But what many outside the state (flatlanders) may not know is that Vermont, and Burlington in particular, has been a hotbed of excellent web designers and developers since the beginning. Yes, it can get a bit hipster around here with its share of artisanal grass-fed small batch free-range sustainably sourced gluten free web designers. It can get a bit much. But I’m proud to have been amongst the very first, back 27 years ago when most people didn’t even know what a website was and even before we had non-GMO local-sourced organic craft beer.

With small screens and uber slow dial-up, web designers had to blend creativity with practical programming to build custom websites that were both attractive and usable. With a background in woodworking, I applied a craftsmanship approach to our digital work, bringing the same attention to detail, resourcefulness, and quality that I learned building custom cabinetry. And after 27 years, that commitment to digital craftsmanship hasn’t changed. 

Custom Web Development: It's All in the Details

Now, when we talk about custom development in Burlington VT, we're talking about websites built tailored to each client’s needs from the ground up and with only the best organic bespoke free-range sustainable code possible. 

At Propeller, we approach each project like a master craftsman approaches a piece of fine furniture. We're not interested in churning out cookie-cutter websites. We're here to build digital experiences that are as unique as the Green Mountain State itself.

We can turn your e-commerce dreams into reality, no matter how niche your market might be.

Search Optimization: SEO The Delivers Traffic

Having a great website is one thing, but making sure people can find it? That's where our Vermont-flavored approach to search comes in. We've been in this game since the days when Ask Jeeves was still a thing. (Remember him? No? Just us? Okay then.)
