Building Your Web Presence One Page At A Time

Who We Are

Umpqua Web Design is based in Roseburg, Oregon but we have clients outside of Oregon as well. We have been creating affordable, uncluttered websites since 2005.

We work closely with our clients, getting to know them and their business. We determine the most cost effective means to develop a website as we help them convey their message to their audience.

We believe in the KISS principle: keep it simple and straightforward. That means no clutter, nothing flashing on or across the screen, ease of navigation, and breathing room around text.

Why Umpqua?
The Umpqua (UHMP-kwah) River is located on the Pacific Coast of Oregon. The river itself is named for the Umpqua Indians, a band of the Coquille tribe. We love carrying a bit of the local landscape in our business name.

Cheryl Smith, Founder of Umpqua Web Design

Cheryl has always had an aptitude for organizing and streamlining work flows. She has extensive experience in an office setting and working with people.

Cheryl went back to school, having first received a Bachelor’s degree, marrying and raising two sons. She earned an Associate’s Degree in 2005 in Computer Information Systems and began developing websites.

She loves working jigsaw puzzles and solving problems, both useful in the world of web development.

“My greatest gift is my ability to sort through all the things you want to share with your audience and arrange them so that they can easily be found, turning viewers into clients.” ~Cheryl Smith, owner

We Love WordPress

Over the years, clients have asked us if they could maintain their own sites. Before Umpqua Web Design started using WordPress, this wasn’t an easy task. Either the client had to learn HTML and CSS, or we needed to find an after market content management system that was affordable.

Content Management Systems (CMS) make it easy to edit existing pages, including photos and text. WordPress gives this flexibility and more. That’s why we have chosen to make WordPress our CMS of choice.

Why does that matter to you? If you choose to manage your own sites, we can teach you how; if not, we are happy to do the work for you.

Feel free to contact us if you have questions about our services or would like to discuss a project. The initial consultation is always FREE.
