How We Can Help

Web Design & Development

From simple starter sites to Ecommerce applications, we design websites for businesses large and small in Marin County and beyond.

Website Maintenance

Keeping your website maintained and up-to-date can be a daunting task for the average business owner. Let us do the heavy lifting so you don't have to.

Website Hosting

Your web host is your home online. Don't settle for anything less than the best: Managed WordPress Hosting with WPEngine.

Mobile Friendly Web Design

Is Your Business' Website Mobile-Friendly?

If visitors have to "pinch" and "zoom" to view your website on a smartphone or tablet, it isn't. And if it isn't mobile-friendly you're likely losing valuable traffic to competitors who do have a mobile-friendly website. Perhaps you're okay with that. If not, it's time to knock the dust off that desktop-only website and go mobile.

Some of Our Clients

Words of Praise From Happy Clients

Marin Web Design Client Shaun Ralston

"As Regional Marketing Manager at Sutter Health, a $6 billion health care organization in Northern California, I've worked with First Light Web Design on several key initiatives. Our Sonoma County Baby project, was developed -- from inception -- with Shane Barnes under tight deadlines and weekly reporting.  Shane was professional, prompt and fun. For those seeking top notch web design, reasonable pricing, spot-on timing and regular deliverables, I'd highly recommend First Light."

"Shane Barnes at First Light Web Design is a pleasure to work with. He is helping me update my website for mobile devices. Who knew there were so many details?!! I'm an estate planning lawyer in Southern Marin, and Shane has been the perfect combination of patient and proactive, helping me to move forward with this project. He's also very adept at explaining the technical details and the online security issues. If you need a top-notch professional to create or update your website, I'd recommend Shane in a heartbeat."
