There are as many choices to make about your website as there are stars in the night sky.

You're either struggling with site design and which platform you should use, or your're pulling your hair out with what to do with an existing site that's older than dirt. You're not a designer, but an ad for an online tool claims you can build the whole thing yourself in just a few hours.

Instead, focus on what you do best.

(We will, too.)

Consultant, developer, and your best ally.

Your're not just a client

IronGlove Studio cares about your needs, the vision you hold for your project, and the success of your business and its clients. Projects aren't just about clean code, creativity, and commitment. They're also about transparency and walking with integrity in the development community. We offer our services to those here in Oregon and abroad that share those same values with us.

What others have to say.


  • Working with Derek was nothing but great! He’s very knowledgeable with web development and online presence as a whole that he makes sure your website stands out. After brainstorming the idea for my website he was able to not only come thru with the proposed project but recommended ways to maximize it. If you’re looking to get a website started or even revamp your existing website, I highly recommend you get in touch with Derek!

  • Derek is a rockstar web developer. We've worked together on several projects where the initial site build was a tangled rats nest. Every time, Derek has been able to step into the project, get oriented as fast as humanly possible, and be producing results on the build. He's streamlined sites with us, refined WooCommerce, and parsed through some burly PHP that would make most developers head's spin. If you have a web project on deck, Derek can help you make sure it's clean and fast from the front end of your site down through all the backend details on your web server. I'm very much looking forward to working with Derek on future projects.

  • My website is amazing! It was made with all the components I wanted and some I didn’t know to ask for. My page is bright, appealing, and easy to update. Exactly what I asked for! Derek is open to suggestions from his clients as he builds, and he thinks ahead, staying in close communication for the entire time my website was being developed. The result is a website tailored exactly to my needs. And it’s beautiful! Never going to anyone else.

  • Separate from Derek's inherent technical skills, his work is process oriented, prompt and thoughtfully executed. As a project partner, I especially appreciate the way he structures key project milestones that speak to my client's most critical objectives. He is able to work efficiently while offering a great deal of transparency throughout each project phase. Derek's work is tailored to each client's needs with their best interests in mind every step of the way. I look forward to partnering with Derek again.

Small business owner's are at risk

Web design ads are all over the net, and social media, with some paid for by those who have little experience, or the popular "design your own website" tool that's super cheap.  They want your money and they know you're desperate enough to give it to them.  They're counting on it, because you just don't know how this industry works.  It's called exploitation.
