Custom websites and web applications that tell your story, showcase your unique talents, and provide the tools that you need.

Web & Web Application Design

For over twenty years, the RICHARD|HAY DESIGN team have been immersed in web technologies, developing literally hundreds of websites and web-based applications. From the artist looking for an online portfolio to showcase her wares, to a company trying to unite their billing and client management functions under a unified interface, to web-based magazines and subscription management tools, we have the demonstrated experience necessary to tackle most projects. What unites all of these projects, though, is a commitment to the individual--a commitment to work with you, to learn from you, and to use the tools at our disposal to create the website or web-based application that tells your story.

The sites below provide a small sampling of the hundreds of projects that have originated from RICHARD|HAY DESIGN.

Janacek Investment

Real Estate Portfolio

Janacek Investment Inc., a Wisconsin-based commercial and residential management and realty firm, needed a complete redesign of their property sites. The new series of sites (,,, and link all of the properties under a single, responsive style, while allowing each to be properly and individually showcased. RICHARD|HAY DESIGN also provided drone-based aerial and professional commercial photography for this project.


Jason Bowen

Artist Portfolio

Michigan-based actor Jason Bowen needed a custom, heavily visual website to showcase his portfolio and invite contact from potential employers. The resulting jQuery-enhanced site features full screen graphics, multiple slideshows, and easy navigation. The site is also fully responsive, adjusting to the desktop, laptop or mobile device being used by the visitor. We've done similar projects for Chicago-based stage director Andrew Park and Indiana-based visual artist Dick Hay.


Twenty Six Design

Unified Sales & Marketing

Orlando-based design and management firm Twenty Six Design LLC. turned to us to redesign all of their product websites, including for their flagship WCONLINE® product. The new sites are clearly unified under a stylebook that we developed, while allowing each product to maintain its own brand. The sites are also fully and highly responsive. Other sites within this project include CENTERED|SERVICE and AGENCY|EDU.


Stephen Langenthal

Realtor Sales

New York-based realtor Stephen Langenthal needed a custom, story-focused site in order to drive potential customers to his real estate firm. Focusing on his narratives, the site tells the story of his first-hand knowledge of the city while providing him with an economical web presence. We've done similar projects for Indiana-based writer Brian Boyce and Chicago-based actor Elliott Fredland.

Quest Theatre Ensemble

Non-Profit Theater

Wanting to move away from an existing and aging Flash-based website, Chicago's Quest Ensemble hired us to create a visually intensive and easily updated website that represented them with the same quality as their shows exhibit, while providing an interface for quick updates and Paypal payments. We've done similar projects for the Milwaukee-based Firefly Urban Grill and Gracious Events.
