Like the individuals who run them, all businesses are different…that’s why we offer Customized Web Design, tailor made to suit your specific needs, no matter the nature or size of your enterprise. We know how important responsive design is, considering the fact that up to half the users on the internet at any given time are browsing on hand held devices. Our websites respond to the browser or device being used, meaning they reshape/resize themselves, so that the user needn’t.
Not everyone is as web-savvy as they’d perhaps like to be but don’t fret…we are here to guide and support you every step of the way with solid site maintenance, upkeep and support.
We utilize only outstanding Content Management Systems. We work with WordPress, Shopify, Weebly, NationBuilder and more, in order to streamline your digital journey and ensure that your online experience is a stress free one.
Online Marketing is like second nature to us and we are here to share that knowledge with you by assisting you with every aspect of the online promotion of your project through platforms like Shopify, Volusion, WooCommerce & BigCommerce.
We utilize every tool at our disposal to ensure that you are able to efficiently run most or even all of your affairs from one place, online, with minimal stress. That’s why we use Nationbuilder, a COS (Community Organizing System) specifically designed to streamline Political Campaigns, as well as the functioning of Non-profit Organizations.
Why choose neva design

We offer upbeat, Creative Design that’s guaranteed to meet and possibly help to set those trends, keeping you way, way ahead of the pack.
We Are Cost Effective
We understand budget constraints and the need for affordable, effective solutions. We are here to help you make the most of what you have, in business, more often than not, the truly big things begin on no more than a wing and a prayer. You can rely on us for Cost Effective, Budget Friendly yet thoroughly outstanding service.

Whether visitors to your site are using an iPad, a Smartphone or a Windows PC…our designs en-sure that they’ll see the same page every single time, eliminating confusion and maximizing conversions.
With the entire business world online and vying for the front row: Search Engine Optimization is a standard requirement these days! It’s no use having an outstanding site if it doesn’t rank highly enough on search engines to be noticed…that’s basically the equivalent of putting a designer boutique down by the old dock, if you catch our drift! Our sites are fully SEO friendly and we employ only the best SEO practices whilst building your site.

Maria is fantastic, a pleasure to work with, skilled, responsive and worth every penny. I highly recommend hiring her for your coding and website needs.
Neva Design is a top quality web design firm with high standards that understands what the customer wants. Maria, the owner, is a good listener and easily grasped the ideas of what I had in mind for our company's website. She was quick to offer suggestions that made sense when things did not fit.
Technically, Neva Design is proficient and organized. I highly recommend their services and will continue to use them in the future.
Neva Design has created two Web sites for us – one for each of our two companies. The experience was great! We met with their designer briefly to explain what we wanted, and they worked their magic.
Neva Design was in constant communication with us, sending us "snapshots" of their progress. The final products look awesome! The Web sites are professional and simple to navigate. We get LOTS of compliments.
We realize that the internet often provides our customers with first impression of our company, and we are proud to direct everyone to our Web sites!
Our website is really "rollin" now thanks to Neva Design. We realized that our website needed an overhaul. We "winced" at the idea of the mountain of work that it would need to redesign our site.
Neva Design worked with us to bring our vision to life. Their experience and creativity took our project to a new level. Their drive for completion and the best possible finished product kept us on task and focused. Neva Design reminded us of what needed to be done and kept patience with us through our different ideas, and working with us to keep the information content updated, relevant and fresh!
We would strongly recommend Neva design for any Tech, Website, and/or Branding needs that you may have. You will be impressed and relieved by their relevant approach to your business or project. Also, Neva Design helped us with our You tube, Facebook, and Twitter Accounts.
Neva Design completely overhauled my old website into a clean, professional and fresh site — on an extremely tight deadline. The staff at Neva Design met with me personally to discuss my vision, were open to changes and suggestions along the way and I'm thrilled with the final result. I recommend Neva Design to all authors, blogger and small businesses.
Neva Design's good design sense and fast turnaround made setting up a website hassle-free and immediately worthwhile. Neva Design is a pleasure to work with and I'd happily recommend them.
The dental office of Doctor's Werrin, Gruendel & Boles have wanted to upgrade the companies website but could not find the right person. We tried several programmers who promissed everything and produced half. Our consultant found Neva Design and it has been a very memorable and rewarding upgrade experience. Neva Design has been prompt, professional and has delivered the upgrade on time. We look forward in working with Neva Design for future additions.
At CCAP we are very pleased with the work of Neva Design. After a lengthy search process to find a suitable designer to lead our redesign we finally found Maria Stankevich and Neva Design. Maria worked very closely with our staff to design a very professional site that was tailored exactly in the way we wanted to fit our needs. She communicated well, was highly efficient and dependable and offered us a very affordable rate. I am happy to recommend her work!
Neva Design did an excellent job building a multi-faceted web site that provides comprehensive resources to families of children with special needs. The finished web site is attractive, easy to navigate, and responsive to users' needs.
Neva Design created a sleek, informative, and engaging website for my book. Maria is not only talented, but also a pleasure to work with. She responded creatively and quickly to the project's many demands. I highly recommend Neva Design.
I wanted to take a moment and write how Extremely HAPPY I am with Neva Design and the work done for Royal Grandeur's website! Our website looks amazing!
I appreciate Maria meeting me in person to better understand what I wanted instead of a phone call! I liked how she was able to take my simple ideas "or lack there of" and create something amazing out of practically nothing! It's almost like she is an artist with a blank canvas and afterwards create a masterpiece!
Maria was easy to get in touch with when I had a question or wanted something changed. She gave suggestions on design features that would work better for SEO's! Finally she was able to keep me posted on the progress and was able to complete our site before our target date! In general, Neva Design ROCKS!!!!
It was my second attempt at creating a website that represented my salon. Maria was my web designer this time and the process went very smoothly and the outcome is great. Maria is very creative and with just a few meetings and emails, we worked together and Maria created a beautiful website. I am very pleased and extremely satisfied. Not very often do I work with someone as professional and talented.
I just wanted to express my deep gratitude and appreciation for the always accurate and beautiful work that Maria has provided for me as the Director of Information Services at Abbott Research Group Inc. I have had the pleasure of working with Maria on web development and design jobs, asking for her expertise and guidance for more than a year and she has always given me the feeling that my needs were urgent to her. Her knowledge is vast and she offers the best approach to solving any problem. She is very fast, extremely honest and I trust that her work has taken into account the multitude of variables that the end user should not have to worry about. I heartily recommend Maria and Neva Design as a premier Web developer!!!!
I highly recommend Maria at Neva Design. From initial design to final launch of my website, I was pleased with her extraordinary ability and the final product. Especially impressive was Maria's speed, accuracy and responsiveness. I felt like she became a part of my business, taking pride in the work that she created for me. She is a gem to work with! Thank you, Maria!
I wanted to thank Maria for her work on designing and constructing the Carve Skis website. Your insights, design skills, and availability represent the hallmarks of a true professional. Thank you for leading us in the right direction in both the design of the site as well as the logo design. We look forward to working with you in the future as we enhance the site. We definitely recommend your firm.
Take Care and best wishes for continued success!
There are 3 elements needed for the firm that will produce a great website: The ability to determine and understand what the customer wants - and needs. Second: possessing a great, original sense of design. Finally, having the technical skills needed to properly execute the product. Maria excels in all aspects! She took our outdated glitch ridden website and completely redesigned the appearance and content, then implemented it perfectly. We have had nothing but praise for our site since, and we could not have been happier with the process. Thank you so very much, Maria!!!
Finding Maria has been the best thing for me and my business. I had contacted several people because I didn't know where to go. Maria got right back to me, while the other designers took days. Maria still gets right back to me. She also gets the tasks she promises to do in a very timely manner.
I had previously designed my own site for my small business but it can be extremely daunting when you only know a little bit about graphics and web design. I even have an art background and I would rather spend my time growing my business with great customer service and listing our products (photographing, writing copy) than worrying about whether my site looks right or professional. Maria took my ideas and made them happen. I am so proud of my site now and have so many compliments from my customers on the ease of use and the beauty of the site. Very happy!
Thank you for designing Clean Combustion & Energy’s website. When I first started this I had no idea as to the exact layout that I really wanted. Maria's willingness to get right to it with her creativity and patience ultimately paid off with a fresh new responsive website. It looks great! I appreciate all of Maria's help with this and would not hesitate to refer a new customer to her.
AMAZING creativity, problem solving and patience.
I’ve been working with Maria for three years now and have always been able to rely on her for development of multiple websites. Whether it was small updates or a new website, she has always gotten the work done quickly. She is always very responsive to my requests and I have full confidence that she can/will get the job done. I take pride in my work and I found that Maria was equally concerned about my projects as well. I highly recommend Maria for website development. She is extremely professional and takes her work very seriously.
Excellent experience. Great disposition, great willingness, always available, excellent commitment to meet our deadlines. Thanks, María!
Neva Design gave me a great experience in creating and developing a web site that fits my business needs. The professionals at Neva Design are easy to work with and pay attention to detail. I will use Neva Design for all my Web design needs.
Impressive web designs contains information and messaging about a company but equally important is how easy and creative the site must be to invite the targeted audience. Our company , like many others, feels very confident on the content of a site. However, we needed a creative web designer to express our message and allow the viewer to easily explore the site. The collaborative work that we accomplished with Neva Design did exactly as we planned. They worked to not only to please our needs but also offered solutions to many of challenges.
Working with a web designer can either be a chore or it can be fun. I am pleased to reflect that it was a joy watching , planning and working with a designer that not only listens but also offers solutions.
Neva Design demonstrated a wonderful initiative and a positive attitude toward accomplishing the needs for a full-fledged website. Designers at Neva Design are very knowledgeable on website technology and also provides excellent back up support when needed. I would refer Neva Designs to anyone that has the need for website services.
