Our focus has always been (and will always be) on building websites for small businesses and entrepreneurs in the PDX metro.

Portland Web Development

We take pride in finding clean, creative coding solutions to make sure your site looks and works how it's supposed to, all while keeping file sizes small so your site loads as quick as possible. Our developers here at Umbrella Avenue use both tools and custom code to make sure everything from the design phase is translated over to the live site perfectly and in full mobile responsiveness.

In the modern day more than half of all web traffic is on mobile devices. Keeping your site looking great on any number of differently proportioned screens is easy to mess up and make your site look like it was built in a cave with a box of scraps. Another important aspect of mobile development is making sure your site loads nice and quick, even on sometimes spotty cellular internet. We pay special attention to both of these things as we develop your site.

Are you looking for the best Portland web design and development? Good thing we found each other then! We're not only the best web development company in Portland, but the whole PDX metro! Let's prove it by showing you how we do things. Here’s how our development process goes. Once all design revisions are done and approved, we code it into your beautiful baby of a website. It’s as simple as that. Just kidding. Kind of. Our development process isn't quite that simple... for us. It honestly is that simple for you. You won’t have to worry about taking years to learn programming languages and tools, we’ve done that for you. But here are some basics if you're curious.

The main 3 coding languages used to build modern websites are: HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. In many ways, HTML is the backbone of the internet. Actually, relating it to bones is a good analogy. You could also think of it as the skeleton of each website. Just like a literal skeleton, HTML provides the structure for any website. The visible text, photos, buttons and links are some of the main things built out in HTML. But HTML alone is super uggo. CSS solves that problem. In this body analogy it would probably be the skin. Maybe the hair? I dunno, all you need to know is that it makes websites pretty. CSS changes the size of the fonts and photos, rearranges the layout and gives everything some needed color! But looks aren't everything, plenty of attractive people are as dumb as bricks. (but not you, reader, you're very smart and attractive!!) JavaScript is the brains behind a website. Do you like how I transitioned into all of these paragraphs? I am more proud of it than I probably should be. Anyways, JavaScript is a little bit difficult to explain because it can get pretty complicated but know that if something is interactive on a website, it was probably made with JavaScript. For example, our contact form uses lots of JavaScript to make itself fancy. (Actually... we had to write all of it ourselves)

We use all three of these languages to code beautiful and functional websites for both desktop and mobile in a way that only computers and other developers can understand. We also make use of tools when appropriate, which makes us, not only among the best web development companies in Portland, but killer WordPress developers too.
