What We've Done

TerraBella Flowers & Mercantile specializes in European garden-style designs, using an assortment of local, organic, and sustainably grown flowers and is based in the Greenwood neighborhood of Seattle, Washington. A longtime customer, we have seen the highs and lows of this site.

Ply Interactive came to Freelock for assistance theming the Crossfit Games site, because of our Drupal expertise and the tight schedule for the project. This site was built from the ground up in Drupal 7, with integration to another application that stores the actual results. Ply did the design and CSS, while relying on us to generate the appropriate HTML for this extremely detailed theme.

World Vision Chinese site

World Vision decided to partner with Freelock in September of 2015 for their Chinese and Korean websites. Headquartered in Federal Way, Washington – this was a perfect fit! We took plenty of time discussing the pain points their product owners were having with the sites, then building out an appropriate retainer plan to provide support services.

Housing Action Fund.org

The Washington Low Income Housing Alliance Action Fund first talked to us about building a new site last October, but they were not ready to proceed. This summer they were finally ready, and used our Base Business Site plan to get a site built and launched quickly.

Nia is a sensory-based movement practice that draws from martial arts, dance arts and healing arts. Freelock built a website that facilitates and supports the community through membership, training, classes, and merchandising.

RadioFrame Networks came to Freelock in late 2008 for a web development project aimed at bringing their existing corporate static site content into the Joomla CMS. We worked with their existing design and web marketing strategy provided by The Garrigan Lyman Group which included implementing the design, setting up the content structure, and hosting the site as well as a development version of the site.

Max Dale's Steak House is a popular restaurant a few dozen miles up the road in Mt. Vernon, Washington. Skagit Media Marketing led the design effort, and partnered with us to deliver the first of our new Basic Business Sites.

World Class Hunting hired Freelock to launch their website with membership levels, recurring payments, contests and advertising options.

Sample checklist

We solve problems.

Lots of our business comes from people who have been unable to get the job done elsewhere.

The challenge with any web project is usually budget -- getting a polished, usable product to match a specific design can take far more budget than people expect. Our approach to addressing this concern is breaking down projects into Sprints, each sprint a focused group of tasks with a defined budget, starting with the things that will deliver the most business value as early as possible.

And then when the first sprint is done, we've delivered something of business value, we plan out the next one.

The launch of a new web site is the start of the project, not the end. You don't stop marketing when you've opened a new store -- marketing is an ongoing activity to keep the world aware you exist.

And even if a site is purely for internal use, organizations change and evolve over time. Most of our clients work with us on a monthly retainer basis, setting aside budget for steady work towards the current business goals.

Sample TCO

When you work with Freelock, you're not just getting a passive subcontractor. We bring opinions to the table. You hire us because we have decades of experience in a variety of industries, and knowledge of things that work and things that don't.

We partner with our customers to find the best solutions to help them succeed. And we're not shy about advocating some approaches over others, or pushing back when we think you're heading down a dead end.

We're not the cheapest shop out there, but with us you're getting more than just a developer -- you're getting a partner who can steer you clear of technology pitfalls, suggest possible new revenue streams or marketing outlets or workflow improvements -- we  deliver strategic value to your business along with our technical solutions.

  1. What a pleasure to work with Freelock in launching our family website for the West Seattle community. John and Jill were vital to our success. We quickly saw that Drupal could handle our scope of requirements and thrilled to find that many of our wish list features were doable with such a capable staff. Communication and support are out of this world impressive with the Freelock team and set the standard for the industry. On time and in budget. Freelock is the clear choice.
