When you put your best foot forward, customers respond with more respect. So we begin all our sites with a custom design that highlights your company's best features.
We do most of our programming in two technologies — WordPress and Ruby on Rails.
WordPress is best known as the world's leading blogging platform, and we can easily include a blog with any WordPress site we create. At the same time, we can also make your site look like a straight-ahead commercial enterprise by designing a custom home page and avoiding any "bloggy" elements in the site design.
We have also streamlined the process of creating new Ruby on Rails applications through custom auto-generation scripts, enabling us to create fully-working components of basic applications (including e-commerce, membership databases, and large content management systems) in a fraction of the time it would normally take.
The best site in the world won't make you money unless you have a sound strategy for driving customers to the site.
We can optimize your site for better performance in the search engines, and help you coordinate Google AdWords, customized landing pages, social networking opportunities — and whatever else you need to actualize your business plan.

“When I hired Atlas Web Development to rebuild our web site, I was the COO of Figaro Systems, and we were desperately in need of a more professional online presence — and fast.
The site that Atlas created for us was not only a giant upgrade in professionalism, delivered promptly, but also gained us an instant credibility boost with clients around the world — helping us secure some very large international contracts. It was just what we needed, and I highly recommend their services.
If you need a professional web site that is integrated with your marketing, and can afford to have it done right, then you need to contact Atlas Web Development.”
“Joshua Zader and his organization have been key to our business's ability to grow and execute our online strategy. The blend of expertise and creativity we've received have been key to developing unique resources, like our new web site and custom widgets.”
“My experience with Atlas was entirely positive — efficient service, quick and courteous responses to my questions and requests — and a creative design flair.
“Atlas was a delight to work with. They developed a web site that captured the creative essence and excitement of my photography studio.
I continue to receive compliments from prospective clients on a regular basis. I especially enjoy the ease with which my web site is maintained.”
“When my clients began migrating from direct mail and print to online marketing, I looked everywhere for a website designer and webmaster I could recommend with confidence and enthusiasm.
Of all the candidates I considered, Atlas's work impressed me the most. Its sites are consistently attractive and functional, in contrast to so many that are "arty," confusing, and impractical.
Joshua Zader has a knack for making even lengthy and complex content readable, clear, and useable. When we began working together, I was equally impressed by his technical skills, collaborative attitude, and responsiveness.”
“My experience with Atlas Web Development can be summed up in three words: creative, accessible, reliable.
As a novelist, I want visitors to my web site to be immediately struck by its striking aesthetic quality, and when, dissatisfied with my pedestrian-looking site, I signed on with Atlas Web Development, Joshua Zader came up with bold designs, striking colors, and a wonderfully appealing format.
Before Atlas Web Development, my site was over-complicated and time-consuming — for me and for potential buyers of my fiction and non-fiction. Not anymore!
Reliability is the hallmark of the professional — and Atlas Web Development has it in abundance. I have never, in all my years of working with Joshua and Kathy Zader, not been treated with utmost courtesy and complete reliability.”
“Atlas designed a very handsome web site for my company. They worked very fast and seemed to have an instinctive knack for knowing what we needed and created a design that was just right for us. I look forward to working with them again in the future.”
“Atlas Web Development knows how to get the job done, fast, right, and on time. I gave them a list of things I needed my web site to do and they made it happen.
I ended up with a professional-looking web site without all the hassle of trying to do it myself and at a fraction of what other companies wanted to charge.”
“Joshua is a talented designer and created a site that perfectly captured my vision. I believe the quality of the design is a big reason for the success of my site. I highly recommend Atlas Web Development for anyone who wants a first-class web site.”
“As an advertising agency, we are driven by creativity, budgets, and deadlines.
Atlas Web Development has been spot-on, on all three fronts. They have provided us with great web design, within budget, and on time.
We're always pleased to work with Atlas.”
“Joshua Zader is a multi-talented web designer with great vision. He was able to to listen to my ideas and concepts and develop them to fit my budget and within the time frame he promised.
His recommendations were always insightful and based on sound marketing principles. He is a great resource and consultant for any online project.”
“We've been working with Atlas Web Development since 2002. Each year, they update our web site and seasonal product database for us.
They respond quickly to our e-mails, they work efficiently, and we've been very pleased with the results.
I would recommend them enthusiastically to anyone who is in the market for a new web developer.”
“Our entire marketing campaign revolves around our web site now. Atlas Web Development did a great job for us.
It was very important for us to come up with a professional quality site that targeted medical practitioners.
They have not only the technical expertise we were looking for, but also the marketing expertise that was crucial in targeting our audience.”
