I’m Lē Isaac Weaver and I started CircleWebWorks in 1997 to provide web design services for some of my audio engineering clients. For 15 years I did this work part-time, and was delighted to see my client list expand every year. In 2012 I was able to “turn the corner” and make CircleWebWorks my full time job.
As my client list has grown over the years, my skill set has expanded, making it possible for my “one-person shop” to provide the same services as many larger firms and agencies. While I continue to hone the basic skills necessary to create excellent websites (knowledge and practical application of coding standards, internet technology structure, UI—user interface design, social media integration, and SEO—search engine optimization), I am often called upon to integrate my expertise in graphic design, audio engineering, photography, substantive editing, and content creation.
The services I provide each client vary, because each of my clients has unique needs. The largest website I’ve developed now features around 1,900 individual pages and posts, but most of the sites I design and manage are smaller sites. Some clients find a single page (like this one) works very well for them. I work with around 50 clients at any given time. While new site builds or redesigns often have to be scheduled a few months out, I make sure I’m never too busy to do routine update requests and site maintenance tasks for my existing clients promptly.
Please scroll down to view examples of my work. If you like what you see, I hope you’ll get in touch to discuss how we can create a web presence which perfectly serves your unique needs.
You’ve heard people say, “It’s not personal, it’s just business.” But you won’t hear me say that. Your work matters to you, it’s personal. My work matters to me, it’s personal. So I think it’s important to agree, right at the start, that the work we do together is going to be personal.
I don’t advertise. I don’t talk people into working with me. I won’t try to reel you in. You’re probably here because we’ve met or one of my clients recommended me and sent you a link to this site. I’ve intentionally positioned CircleWebWorks as a small web technology firm. My clients appreciate working one-on-one in what is usually a very impersonal sector.
I partner with a select group of clients to help them build and manage an effective and evolving web presence. I don’t compete for jobs, because what I offer is not really best understood as the creation of a product. Instead, I offer an ongoing professional relationship in which I help my partners, people and organizations, to identify and best utilize the possibilities available online. In the course of that work, I usually build websites for my clients. But it’s what comes before and after the website build that often determines whether the financial and time investment in the website will yield a sufficient return or not.
I know almost all other web firms will be more than happy to just listen to your wish-list, submit a bid, and build a site. They may remain available to do updates after the site is done at additional charge, some may offer to perform the routine upkeep and maintenance for a monthly fee, but that’s pretty much the extent of it. You are basically left having to drive the bus of your online presence. I’m just not so sure that works very well, especially for organizations, because there is usually frequent leadership turnover. So that’s why I offer a different kind of service.
Since I invest a lot of my creativity and time in each project, my reward comes not entirely (or even mostly) in the form of money, but it comes in the satisfaction of seeing something work well for people I care about.
My philosophy of keeping it personal isn’t right for every situation. I know that. But if it sounds to you like we might be a good fit, let’s take an hour or two and talk about ways we can leverage available web technology to support and enhance what you are doing in the world.
