A Word From Our Founder

Twenty years ago, in our rustic design studio, a college friend introduced us to a quaint but profound technology called the “world wide web.”

A lot has changed since then. Bandwidth has exploded — commerce has moved to the web — and mobile and tablet devices have become ubiquitous. As the web has evolved, one thing remains constant: good information design is what makes data accessible and useful. Design is what makes the web work. We look forward to collaborating with you.

Josh Woodlander, Founder 1stWave Interactive

Josh has over 140 website development projects to his credit including Snapfish, Match.com, CinemaNow, and KKR Financial. PC Data ranked his interface design for HP's Snapfish.com (with over 85 million users worldwide) number one in its class for site usability and customer satisfaction. He has 20+ years of experience with branding, interface design, and UX engineering.
