Why Windward and Web Design?

This New Hampshire web design company is owned and operated by Lauren D. Zike, a graphic designer become web developer. Lauren has been designing and coding websites for over 9 years. She has an in-depth knowledge of web site design, user experience, information architecture, search engine optimization, and several programming languages: HTML, PHP, CSS, ColdFusion, JAVA, jQuery, Flash.

But why the name Windward Web Design? The energy usage for the hosting provided by Windward is 100% offset by wind power credits. For the non-nautical among you, windward is a sailing term, refering to the direction of the wind. The leeward side of a vessel or island may be protected and calm, but the windward ship gains tactical advantage and maneuverability, even if the ride may be rougher. And thrown in for good measure, when Lauren lives atop a windy hill. Eventually, she plans to combine all these factors: responsible web hosting, a sailboat, and her love of the wind, designing beautiful websites as she travels the world's oceans. In the meantime, she'll be ready to meet you on dry land to discuss your next web project.
