Who We Are

We're Always Available

One of the recurring comments we hear from perspective clients is that their old web developers were never available. No need to worry about that with us. Seriously, you're never going to be left in the dark. 7pm on a Friday? Don't you worry, we'll answer.

We Treat Your Website Like Our Own

It's easy to tell when a developer has his/her heart in a project and when they're just moving through the motions. We never go through the motions here. We invest our hearts into your company, learning it from the inside out. We would be proud to call your website our own.

We Want You For Life

Once you become our client, you stay our client. With each passing month of working together, we learn more about each other. We learn to work better with each other, to better accomplish your goals. We work hard to keep you happy and we're sure that you'll notice.

We're A Boutique Web Developer

Cincinnati has more than its fair share of web design studios. What it doesn't have are boutique agencies who put substance right up there with style. We're a small group of developers, strategists, and designers, all working as your personal concierge to the web.


Who We Aren't

We Are Not Shy About Ideas

Our company is called Ideas and Pixels for a reason. Although we are primarily a web design company, many of our clients rely on our expertise for general business strategy as well. We've watched dozens of businesses see record years under our guidance.

We're Not Inexperienced

Although we're small, we enjoy a wealth of knowledge on a broad range of topics. We're WordPress experts, server gurus, search engine optimization specialists, and strategy saviors. Just one conversation with us and we'll open you up to the possibilities.

We're Not Too Expensive

When we begin working on a website, our main focus is to generate more business for your company via our improvements. Even considering our stellar caliber of work, we're often modestly less expensive than many of the other web designers we bid against.

We Are Not Going Anywhere

Going into our sixth year of operation, Ideas and Pixels is a Cincinnati staple that is not going anywhere. We love our city and the businesses that call it home. We wouldn't trade our client base for a 1,000 three-ways. Well, maybe we take that one back.

Ideas and Pixels is a full service web design and marketing company. Our journey officially began in early 2010, but our roots go as far back as the late 90’s, when the web was only in its infancy. Allen Gingrich started to notice that websites were becoming much more than simple online text documents. Graphics and design principles were beginning to work their way into the web, and the popularity of sites like eBay and Amazon showed that the web could be extremely lucrative. Using his observations, he began to experiment on the web himself, eventually becoming the lead programmer for a variety of fan sites and web portals. Over time, people that used his work began to ask for his help on other personal projects. A few projects turned into a lot of projects, and it was off to the races.

Fast forward ten years. The work had begun to pile up exponentially, and designing alone was simply not an option anymore, if growth was to continue. Allen then reached out to an old friend who had gone through the same rigors as he had — graphic design education, web training and the like — Matt Valvano. And the rest is history. Over the last three years, Ideas and Pixels has gone from a one man design studio to a four man design firm. The projects keep getting bigger and better, and the community has certainly started to notice. We’ve had the pleasure of working with dozens of great companies over the last three years, and the list keeps growing every year.

What We Do And Why

Consider this our elevator pitch. Chances are, you aren’t fully harnessing the web like you could be — and like you should be. That’s where we come in. We’re a group of guys (and one cool gal intern) with different backgrounds and styles, but one single, unified goal: help businesses take the internet by the horns by getting their websites to generate more leads. More leads means more businesses. More business means happy clients, which makes us just plain jolly.

Our secondary goal is increasing brand exposure by creating brilliantly styled websites for companies in Cincinnati and around the country. We work with our clients to set conversion goals from the very beginning, so you know the return on investment even before a line of code is typed. Social media management is also in our toolkit. We employ tried and true social media strategies that work to strengthen other parts of your digital campaign or local print collateral.

Mostly though, we’re just a collective of people with different skills that mesh in all the right places.
