About black&hue

black&hue provides small businesses, creative professionals, and non-profits with a plan and creative solutions to build their brand and engage their audience.

Whether you are an established business, a motivated non-profit, or someone who's just starting out with a new venture, we care about you, and will look out for your best interests. Many of our clients return to us again and again because we don’t just build websites, we build relationships that they can count on.

For each type of design project we are engaged in, we provide a clear outline of our process, timeline, and expectations. Having a successful plan is key to client/designer communications, which then leads to successful end products and positive relationships. Let's get started on a project together! 

What We Believe In

Word of Mouth

We've built our client list mostly through word of mouth, the highest compliment we can receive! 

Building Trust

Helping our clients trust us with their success is the most valuable aspect of what we do, period. 

Staying in Touch

Keeping in touch with our clients after their project ended has helped us build lasting relationships.
