Web Design Done Right.
Whether you’re an artist, entrepreneur, or small to medium-sized business, your website serves as the primary opportunity to make a positive and lasting impression. Getting it right is essential.
Capabilities We Provide Your Business
RAW Design Lab is a small boutique firm serving the tristate area and specializing in white-glove services for website development, graphic design, logos, and short-form videos.
Under the leadership of Douglass Ridgeway, RAW design lab offers services in 3 areas to provide his clients with a one-stop customer experience:
Douglass started building hand-coded HTML websites in 2001. He still codes in HTML, CSS, JS, and PHP but he also uses the Divi builder for WordPress websites and utilizes his coding knowledge to truly customize his clients’ websites. The other platform he enjoys is Wix for its full complement of client management capabilities directly in the dashboard.
Douglass got his masters in Communication Design from Pratt Institute in 2009. He is an award-winning designer who loves stylistic consistency across multi-channel campaigns, being pixel-perfect, and on-brand. Satisfaction guaranteed.
Since 2020, when covid created a deep need for virtual connections, Douglass has helped art organizations and nonprofits create virtual experiences for their constituents; from running tech on Zoom exhibitions to creating animated videos and virtual presentations.
