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

If you're a private client, you're frustrated with how the site should be built, how it will look, and what's going to be on it. If you're a web or marketing agency, you're pulling your hair out with how to manage projects, staff, or contractors, aside from actually trying to understand if they're doing it right. Most clients and agencies don't have the expertise to make these decisions, and it becomes a guessing game on what the right decision actually looks like.

Instead, focus on what you do best.

(We will, too.)

But your're not just another 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 professional services to private clients and agencies in need of project management and WordPress development services here in Oregon and abroad that share those values with us.

What others have to say.

  • 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.

  • 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!

Small businesses and web agencies are at risk

Small businesses making less than 500k per year, and integrated web agencies that offer marketing and web development services, are routinely exploited.  Shoddy “developers” and “designers” are hired without best practices in place, and agencies without in-house development and project management expertise are routinely fooled by so-called “professionals”. Corners are cut and band-aids are applied, and it destroys your project’s sustainability and growth potential. This is one of the many ways that clients and agencies are taken advantage of, and we cover this and more!
