We are Paul and Maria Grenwood, a husband and wife website-building duo. We have been running our own web design and development business since 2011 and have enjoyed working with many small to mid-sized businesses and nonprofit organizations.
In 2017 the travel bug hit us hard and we sold our house in Bellingham Washington to build out a home on wheels and hit the road! We are taking full advantage of our ability to work remotely, taking in new inspirations and pouring it into our design.
We each hold a BFA in Graphic Design from the University of Minnesota Duluth. In fact, that’s where we met! After college we worked for the top marketing agency in Duluth and have now been running our own small business for the past seven years. We have taken what we’ve learned from our decade of experience and created a process for designing and building websites which is efficient and organized, making a custom web presence affordable for small businesses. Most importantly, we have a passion for creativity and we love our evolving craft.
Your website is one of the most important tools your business has – it guides visitors through the unique story of your business and conveys your most important messages. It has to be a leading source of current information and we understand all this could leave a person’s head spinning. Well, we’re kinda experts at this and can help walk you through the process of building a website that puts your best foot forward.
We work with businesses of all sizes and across many industries including travel, healthcare, technology, food, apparel, publishing, arts, festivals and more. Given our lifestlye and interests we are especially excited to talk to those in the outdoor industry but we really enjoy the variety of working with all business types.
We have always been a fan of road trips and we are so stoked to be living VanLife full-time. This lifestyle has helped us rediscover the deep well of creativity within us through the freedom the open road brings as well as through the awe that comes with discovering new landscapes.

Paul and Maria are truly a joy to work with. As artists, they have an incredible ability to see the beauty that surrounds us, and translate it into fresh, purposeful and functional designs. As business owners, they are extremely responsive, intuitive and patient and invite their clients to play an active role in the creative process.
The Grenwoods captured visually and functionally what we had envisioned for our website. They listened to what we had to say and they worked hard to provide us with the finished product we needed.
The Grenwoods are a good value for all the services they provide, and in the quality of the work they do. We are pleased with the end product. Their customer service was phenomenal. I value being able to talk to a live person. They were reachable and hands-on throughout the whole process and continue to be so.
The Grenwoods came from a referral. I had never met them. But when I looked at their website I thought, “Wow, they have good taste!”. Then I spoke with Paul and thought, “What a cool guy!”. So I entrusted them with pretty much the future of my company by hiring them to design my website, and wow it was cool! People love the site, as do I. Not only would I hire them again but I’d hire them and pay them more. They’re worth it. You just can’t substitute for taste.
I’ve had just a wonderful experience working with The Grenwoods. Do yourself a favor. Hire them. They’ll make you look good.

I hired The Grenwoods to build and design my personal website. Their work is high quality and reasonably priced. They seemed to intuitively know the look that I was aiming for, and they were responsive when I had follow-up questions about my site. I would highly recommend that you work with them.
