WHO WE WORK WITH
Over the past 12 years we've found our most wildly successful projects have been the direct results of trust-based, respectful, fun relationships with clients.
The clients with whom we're a best match share several unique characteristics. It's very likely you'll be a great fit with us if most of the following characteristics describe you/your company...
- Decisive. You make quick, confident decisions.
- Direct. You don't want the truth sugar-coated, and you don't sugarcoat it yourself..
- Visionary. You see the forest, not just the trees. You don't get mired down in the weeds.
- Organized. You plan ahead, are naturally proactive (instead of reactive), and you like things broken down into chunks. It's even possible checklists make you smile.
- Respectful. You do what you've agreed to do. You don't think it's acceptable to regularly ignore emails or no-show for conference calls.
- Open-minded. You have intellectual humility. You're good at what you do, and respect we're good at what we do. You're looking for guidance and consulting—not a digital mechanic that does whatever you request without questioning whether it's in your best interest.

...AND A NETWORK OF EXPERTS
Though we're a one stop shop for the majority of our clients, there are plenty of things we don't do. That's exactly why, during our 12+ years working in the industry, we've formed strong partnerships and grown our network of talented companies and individuals who specialize in the areas we don't.
From real estate photographers to Drupal developers to Python specialists, we typically know exactly the right people to bring in for a project. and can thus quickly expand our team if and as needed.
And since we're not a fit for everyone, we make sure to point clients in the a better direction when we're not a perfect match.

Working With TimeForCake Is A Pleasure
"The blog's running smoothly, we've added content daily and we're now getting about 1,000 hits a day! (Plus, moving to your hosting has made a big difference with load times.) We are VERY happy with the final product, and extremely pleased with everything.
There seems to be a ton of mediocre web design and web development companies out there, and when you find a really, really good one, you take notice. Working with your company is a pleasure, and when we need more site work (I am sure that we will), we will call you. You all are the best web company that we have ever worked with."
