It all started with a few awesome coworkers and a casual “what if.”
What if we we can build a company that actually helps people? You know, a business that isn’t here just for the profit and well-balanced books. Having worked for other companies, we know what makes a socially-responsible business, as well as the practices used by many big players in the industry that we find unacceptable. At this note, it feels appropriate to thank our former bosses – brilliant leaders, talented salesmen or tough managers – we’ve learned a lot from your successes and failures.
Don’t get us wrong – as a business, we need to be profitable, but we can achieve this while staying flexible with our contracts, being honest with our clients and generous with our profits. (Check out what we do to help the community.)
The Misfit Philosophy
A misfit is a state of being – being amazingly talented, hungry for knowledge, eager to help and happy with your inner quirkiness that is. We are not anti-social, self-absorbed or pompous in any way. Quite the opposite – all of our misfits are very approachable and friendly. We simply didn’t agree with some of the ways businesses are run these days, so we are fixing this the best way we can. We are walking our talk and being the change we want to see in business. So we decided to create the type of company that we wanted to work for, and the company that you wanted to do business with. Leave all your preconceived notions about what a web design company is at the door. We’re a little different.
All of our misfits are knowledgable and passionate about what they do, whether it’s web design, online marketing, copywriting, social media or this new thing you haven’t heard about yet. We are also a bit of health nuts with green thumbs with a deep respect for the environment. Maybe that’s why we are in a digital business?
We’re also passionate about providing fair and affordable web solutions to small businesses. Here are just some of our policies:
- No budget is too small. We will find a way to provide you with what you need within your price range.
- We will never charge interest on project fees. The only interest charged is on late payments.
- No project is too small. Sometimes you don’t need a lot of work, and a lot of web companies won’t touch your project unless it’s a certain size. Not us 🙂

A Woman-Owned Business
Misfit is run by women and works to support women in as many ways as we can. Some of us are completely self-taught in our trade, others are stay-at-home moms, we support the local Women’s shelter, donate to causes important to women, and are proud to support several local businesses owned by women.
Not that we feel being a woman has any bearing on the quality of our work and our dedication to our cause. We support all small businesses that have a budget and are wanting to succeed. We provide the care, dedication and consideration to provide you with the best possible service, no matter your budget. We have always gone above and beyond for our clients, usually at the our own cost, to make sure they are taken care of.
