Hey there.

Thanks for checking in on Source, a web design and development studio in Austin, Texas. Sorry about the bare bones here – we’d have built a fancier website for ourselves, but we’re saving all the good ideas for you. And besides, we’re just too busy making great sites for our equally great clients. Cobbler’s children and all that.

We’ll have a proper website someday, but if you’d like to postpone it a little longer, we’d be thrilled to have you as one of our great clients. Give us a shout at hello at built by source dot com, and tell us a little bit about what you’re looking for.

We want to help you help your website help you.

At Source, we’re committed to building beautiful, usable websites with a focus on client-managed content. We believe your site should build your business or further your cause, and you should be empowered to easily update it yourself as often as you’d like. Everything is designed and produced with these goals in mind, using open source technologies and modern standards.

We develop robust content management systems from the ground up using our own code, or we can deploy and customize existing solutions like ExpressionEngine. Either way, you get a site that you can maintain through a simple, logical web-based interface.

Not sure what that means? No problem. We’d be happy to explain our services and approach in overwhelming, somnolence-inducing detail (or we can just give you a pretty good short version).

And if you’re a small creative agency who needs an interactive partner, Source is there for you, too. We’re happy to collaborate on your project at any point in the process – from design and interface guidance through complete front and back-end development. We’ll treat it like our own, and hand it back with pixel-perfect sensitivity to your layouts and interaction requirements.

Take a look at a bit of what we’ve done.

You’ll find that we’ve covered quite a bit of ground, including sites for social apps, film companies, geoscientists, architects, interior designers and chiropractors.

We’ve helped foundations and associations, therapy services and realtors.

We’ve also collaborated with our buddies at Helms Workshop to sell craft beer, pizza, local grocers, artisan sausages, casual apparel, sophisticated landscapes and burritos. We even built their own site for them.

Don’t worry if you don’t see your dream site in the mix… we just haven’t created it yet. Drop us a line, and we’ll fix that ASAP.

Source who now?

At its core, Source is David Guillory, an interactive designer and developer with over a decade’s experience spent doodling websites and making them go. Along the way, David has been recognized by the American Advertising Federation, AIGA Austin, the Dallas Society of Visual Communications and the Art Directors Club of Houston, while being published in books and periodicals including Communication Arts, Print and Graphis.

Source is also a trusted group of developers and professional partners specializing in every web-related need under the sun. If your project requires it, we’ll have it covered.

Drop us a line.

Source is located in the stately Hammer & Pixel Compound, 3507 South 1st Street (also home to design wizards and friends of the site, Helms Workshop).

To get a conversation started, just shoot us a note and let us know how we can help. We’d love to hear from you…
