Why a Boutique Web Design Firm May Be Right for You

December 9, 2013 | Posted in B2B and tagged


There’s no denying it, the time has come. You have outgrown your current website – it no longer adequately reflects who you are, what you do, or the image you want your company to project. Perhaps it never did. You’re ready to take the next step, to invest in a new design that will refresh or even rebrand your business. There is only one decision left to make:

Which web design firm is right for you?

You may be wondering if it’s time to step up to a big design company, particularly if you feel your previous website was subpar or was designed on a shoestring. However, it may surprise you to learn that your needs would almost certainly be better met by choosing a smaller, boutique design firm like Somethumb.

Here’s why.

You are not a cookie

There are no cookie-cutter solutions here, no longstanding workflow protocol that must be adhered to. As a small firm, we have flexibility that larger companies simply don’t have. We can design a website that is tailor-made for you, adapting to a wide variety of situations and industries, from law firms to non-profit organizations. Free from bureaucracies and red tape, we can implement changes on the fly without incident and make executive decisions without big staff meetings because, well, we’re the executives!

You’ve got our number

Larger firms often have teams so vast it’s unlikely you’ll speak to more than one or two of them. One key advantage of a small firm like Somethumb is accessibility – you will be able to reach and and speak to the very people working on your project. We communicate with you regularly to ensure that we fully understand your needs; with direct contact we ensure nothing is lost in translation as we work to turn your vision into reality.

Bigger isn’t always better

There are some very practical reasons why a small firm has the advantage over a big company.

Expense. For one thing, we don’t have the huge overhead costs of a larger firm, which means those costs are not being passed on to you. It also means we can afford to be selective in our work. We never take on more projects than we can comfortably handle, which means you will never be lost in the shuffle.

Hands on. A small firm has the luxury of taking the time know your project inside and out. We can advise you on getting the best value for your money based on your objectives, develop a custom design that accomplishes those goals, and we will keep you apprised of its progress every step of the way.

Passion and pride. Our small firm is comprised of talented, passionate people who collaborate freely and stay connected while giving our all to each and every project. Each team member takes great pride in the outcome of every project we take on, and we are committed to building our reputation for designing beautiful, effective websites that thrill our clients.

Business decisions are never easy, especially when it’s your business. However, we hope we’ve made this particular decision just a bit easier by showing that you’re not limited to choosing between a budget template design or a big design firm – there is a very appealing middle ground to consider. And we think you’ll find a boutique web design firm to be just right.
