Web Design Philosophy

Like what you see? There is a lot more where this came from. We’ve been designing and building websites since 1997 – and we’re not going to stop anytime soon.

Perhaps you need a simple commercial site to sell your product, or a fully Flash-powered dynamo to show your clients that your advertising business means… well, business. We’re here to help. We’ve employed graphic designers, Flash engineers, even graffiti artists all in the pursuit of website perfection.

Startled Marmot’s Got Talent

Startled Marmot LLC was founded by programmers, not media artists. And who wants a website designed by programmers? Not even we did.

So we knew we had to find talented graphic designers immediately – and we did. This goes along with our core belief: find amazing talent and hire them. Let them focus on what they do, and let them do it for you.

Why have a programmer design a website? The answer is simple: don’t.


Startled Marmot can help. We’ve been building websites for over a decade and have watched the technology change – we’ve seen what works and what doesn’t. That means we won’t try to up-sell you on features your site doesn’t need.

Ease of Use – For You

One thing we like to be is enablers. Why pay us to maintain your website if we can build it so you can maintain it yourself? Sure, we’d love to do it for you — don’t get us wrong! However the option should be up to you. Your website will be so easy to update, you won’t need anyone to help.
