Hi I'm Jon and I am the founder of DesignBy2s which is a web design and development shop that is servicing the Lincoln Nebraska area. I have that rare combination of being both a web developer and a web designer which helps ensure that if we work together your website will not only look great, but perform great as well.

If you are interested in having a website created, your existing site updated or are not sure where to start, I would love to talk with you about your project.
