The story behind Smitten

We’ve spent over twenty years creating our ideal studio

After 17 years of leadership and producing award-winning work for the biggest names in advertising, Shawn Hardy founded Smitten Labs in 2015 to work with more people and products with heart. He brought together a team of creatives who live for close connections with clients, projects, and each other – and who love what they do.

We are a multi-disciplinary, independent design consultancy. When you work with us, you will work directly with a team of designers, writers and developers hand-picked for your project. Our work ranges from digital experiences, traditional creative, and digital marketing. Take a look at our work and our process to see if we could be the right fit for you.

Website Design & Development

Websites are our bread and butter. Our custom process leads to sites that are not only beautiful and strategic, but help your organization thrive.

Strategy:
We dive into your audience and your needs to arrive at a sitemap, user flows, messaging, and key wireframes. The creative direction, design, and copywriting is then built to match.

Build:
We build your fully responsive website with an easy to use content management system (CMS). Before launching we QA test your new site, and archive your old one.

Management:
We train you and your team to manage the site post-launch. We can also lead you through maintenance and iterative updates so that the site can grow and evolve with you.
