Why Richard the Brave?

Our standards are high. As a company, we’re very detail-oriented. You could even say we’re picky.

Because this stuff matters to us.

We think standards should be high.

But don’t worry if you don’t know a website from a water buffalo, or a brand standards guide from a banana.

As long as you want someone who cares about what you’re working on, we’ll make a great team.

Website design & development

A professional website is a must-have for any serious business. We specialize in building websites for companies who want to be competitive in the online world.

Websites are complex, but owning a well-performing site doesn’t have to be. Our friendly and responsive approach takes the hassle out of building and maintaining your online address.

Intuitive user interface

Logo design

Your logo gives you a chance to show off the personality of your business. Your logo is your mark – and something to be proud of.

We’ll work with you to discover the best way to present your brand to the world. Through discussion, research, and some gut instinct, we’ll build a mark that leaves the right impression.

Touch interface interaction

Signage & stationery

Well-branded signage and stationery keeps your business visible in the community and top-of-mind with your customers.

Business cards to backlit signs, letterhead to sandwich boards, banners to stickers. We’ll ensure your marketing materials stay on message and on brand.

  • Catherine Walton, RMT

    As a solo RMT working within a larger clinic, Catherine needed a website to replace her old one-pager that would effectively highlight her own unique services and style to clients and clinics alike.
  • Artzi Stuff

    When you visit Artzi Stuff’s downtown Nanaimo gallery and gift store, it’s best to make sure you have the time to really look around. This project included a logo revamp and fully-featured website that’s easy to keep updated.
  • Violet Hair Lounge

    We started with a new logo, and soon after built a brand-new website for this downtown hair salon. Owner Angie has since hired us for numerous signage and print projects on top of the website development work.

  • I don’t know ANYTHING about websites. Is that a problem?

    Not at all.

    We take care of all the jargon-y and technical stuff so you don’t have to.

    And when we do need to bring you up to speed about something technical, we’re well-versed in making the information relatable.

  • How long does it take to build a website?

    6 to 8 weeks is a common, start-to-finish timeline for a website project.

    The scale and complexity of the website will also affect the overall timeline.

    6-8 weeks is typical for a small business website for a local company with a brick-and-mortar presence. The development time for a large online store, on the other hand, would be considerably more.

    At the beginning of your project, we will agree to a series of milestones in order to set clear expectations and keep your project on track.
