Creating web sites for the past ten years has taught me much about web design and also about life. My company takes its name from “Walden Pond” by Henry David Thoreau. Over a hundred years ago he built a small shack next to a pond because he “wished to live deliberately, to front only the essentials facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and now, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived”
For me Walden Pond Design is my “pond”. My teachers are my clients that bring me their exciting projects. I love what I do and it shows in my work. Please take a peek at some of our web designs for CT shoreline businesses.
Thoreau also wrote “most men lead lives of quiet desperation”. This is also true of most web sites, they are desperate attempts to get your attention. At Walden Pond we work hard to create web sites that are alive with information and energy. Our web sites capture the essence of your company and project it in a persuasive and compelling manner. We are a motley crew of web designers, search engine optimizers, graphic artists, programming geeks, writers and photographers that love what we do and it shows in our work. Some of our talent works for high-end Madison avenue shops, but at night slip off the suit and slip on a pair of worn jeans to create magic.
Walden Pond has been a source of inspiration for years. Below is an amazing shot in the on the cover of the NY Times October 22, 2011 Sports Section. The picture ran the width of two pages, it was spectacular.
