HOW IT ALL STARTED
Randy Word owned an e-commerce business in the late 1990's, and originally hired a web design company to build the website. This company made big promises, but did not deliver on them. After becoming frustrated with this process, in 1999 Randy decided to learn how to build the website himself (with the help of Andrew Kent and Anna Pengelly). It ended up being a much bigger project than originally expected, but the end product was a beautiful 250 page web site with a full shopping cart database and many exciting graphical innovations that are still considered cutting edge today.
Amazed at how difficult it was to find reliable web design companies that provided personal, friendly service, Randy started Word Web Design to serve and meet the needs of small businesses and professionals.
THE PEOPLE WHO MAKE IT HAPPEN
|Randy Word - CEO & Web Designer/Programmer
Randy has over 20 years of experience in small business accounting, serving as CFO for four small businesses during his career. He also has over 15 years of experience in website design and business marketing and branding.

Randy's hobbies include Bicycle Road Racing (he has won several Oregon State Championship medals), and racing Karts with his eldest son (WordRacing.com).
"My goal at WORD Web Design is to put myself in the shoes of our customer's clients (or patients) and provide the online interface that best meets their needs. In addition to building the brand, it's our responsibility to make websites and online forms user-friendly".
