A decade ago, one of our first clients asked us to build them a website. We took their request at face value and built them a beautiful, effective, well-constructed site.

Only later did we discover that they hadn't planned to do any marketing for the site. In the end, the site was great... but almost no one visited, for lack of marketing.

Since then we've changed our process

We still build high-quality websites, but only after doing strategy first. This process helps our clients get results that are better than what they originally expected.

If you want an unthinking implementer, we're not for you.

But if you want to collaborate with a technical partner dedicated to understanding your organization and your business goals, we'd love to see if there's a fit.

Let's do this!

Our Dedicated Team Will Make Your Vision a Reality.

Owner / Senior Developer

John is a Zend Certified Engineer who has a passion for writing well designed code and has contributed to the Joomla project as an extension developer, Joomla Community Magazine author, user group team leader, and a bug squasher. Prior to becoming a programming nerd, John served as a Sergeant in the Marine Corps infantry. He integrates the lessons he learned in the service about getting things done with his expert development knowledge to craft high quality solutions for Blue Bridge's clients. In his spare time he's likely reading sci-fi, doing pull-ups, geeking out on business, or hiking in the rain.



Web Developer

Nicky grew up in Rockford, Illinois, where in 1999 he built his first website, learning the basics from a couple books. His fascination with computers and compulsive need to sketch eventually led him to central Florida to study Computer Animation at Full Sail University. After several years of creating visual FX for different projects, including a feature length documentary, he gravitated back toward web development. He is always excited to expand his knowledge of PHP programming and on the lookout for creative solutions. In his off hours, Nicky can be found in Woodlawn Park playing ragball (when that Portland sun is out) or enjoying listening to You Made it Weird with a cup of coffee and pipe tobacco (when it's not.)
