Why Choose Watermelon Web Works?

Founded in 2002, Watermelon Web Works has mastered the art of designing websites to look great, and importantly, to drive real return on investment for our clients. We put a high value on listening so that we integrate seamlessly with our client’s cultures and teams. We aim for high quality and transparent communication at the heart of every project.

We’ve designed and built a diverse array of websites, from high-traffic e-commerce platforms serving millions of users to sites tailored to smaller service professionals. While the technical aspects of web projects can be straightforward when planned well, we’ve learned that client frustration often stems not necessarily from low quality of work but instead from misunderstandings and / or breakdown in communication.

With Watermelon Web Works, you can put those concerns to rest. Our two decades of expertise in developing, hosting, migrating, and updating WordPress and Magento sites equip us to handle any challenge and ensure your project’s success. We recognize the crucial role of clear communication and commit to keeping you well-informed and promptly responded to at every phase of your project.
