Who We Are

We are a Cedar Rapids based Website Design/Development company.

Our owner, James Welbes has been building websites since he was about 15. He learned HTML by looking at the source code of existing websites and reverse engineering them.

We’ve come a long way since the days where HTML ruled the web design world. Today languages like PHP, CSS, and JavaScript are must-haves for even the most basic of websites.

Cedar Rapids Web Design is passionate about the Cedar Rapids/Iowa City area communities, which is why we regularly like to run our Free Website for a Non Profit campaign, where we choose from a pool of Non Profits who register on our site and build a website for them absolutely free! It’s the least we can do to give back to this great community that has done so much for us.

Cedar Rapids Web Design specializes in website design and development, SEO, mobile responsiveness and cross browser compatibility.

James Welbes

Lead Developer

James is a person who does things. Lots of things. But mostly Web Design, and mostly in WordPress, tho he’s been known to dabble in other technologies, including WebFlow, October CMS, and of course good old fashioned code.

James has been building websites since he was about 13 (which was 20 years ago). He’s watched the internet, and it’s technologies grow and evolve from Desktop only to Mobile First.

Whatever you need done, James can do it. And if he can’t, he’ll figure it out.

Devin Green

Lead Designer

Devin loves graphic and web design. Creating interfaces is also one of his passions. With over 11 years experience in graphic design and 7 years experience in web design, his preferred tools of the trade are Adobe Photoshop CC, Adobe Illustrator CC (They go way back), and Webflow (He was using it before it was cool, 😉) With these tools, Devin paints the web how he sees fit. Beautifully.

When he’s not designing beautiful websites, Devin is working tirelessly on his very own clothing line, Style Clothing Co. He also enjoys photography and making music.
