Back in the ’90s, Matthew Farnell discovered HTML coding and the world of web pages. Fascinated, Matthew began developing his skills by taking on volunteer web site projects. By his senior year in high school, he took first place in a state wide web development contest sponsored by OSPI and DNR.
Farnell Web Design was founded in 2000, just after Matthew graduated. Even back in those early days, Matthew’s purpose was to provide quality work and honest, friendly services. The internet continues to change and we enjoy keeping up with the latest technologies, but our purpose is still the same. Over the years we have created dozens of web sites, ranging from simple one-page brochures to database applications and WordPress managed sites.
Farnell Web Design is committed to your success. Your web page is often your first impression, and can make or break a reputation, transaction, or business. Farnell Web Design specializes in helping individuals and businesses develop their professional web site presence. We build web sites that stress quality, simplicity, and usability. We would love to work with you to create you unique online strategy.
