Established in 2001
came to be in 2001. I had always done free-lance work (even while in College-as far back as 1989) but the website wasn’t constructed until 2001. My mission is to provide to best looking and coded website that I am capable of creating. I also pride myself on helping people who have been continually frustrated by difficult designers who either didn’t fulfill their obligation or disappeared midway through a project. My mantra; “Feel Lost? Use a web & graphic designer who won’t leave you stranded.”. I am very honest with my clients; I tell them what is possible and what isn’t, up front. I thrive on creating original artwork, logo work or photographing for my clients and putting it all together. I do not outsource my work.
Meet the Business Owner: Steve M.

“Steve McKinnis is a fabulous and creative person. He has great web designing skills as well as good people skills. Many of my patients have complimented my website because they said that it accurately portrays our caring office atmosphere. Steve has gone out his way to help me with powerpoint presentations as well. He is available for last minute help and is more than willing to rearrange his schedule to offer assistance. I have referred several other professionals to Steve for graphic arts and web design. Their positive experiences have paralleled mine. My website is always in the process of being updated. Take a look at Steve’s creation.
“Here it is 2013 and we here at Bollotta Entertainment continue to work with Steve McKinnis. Why, you ask. Simple. Steve gets the job done right the first time, with little to no explanation and without any of the headaches one might expect to experience working with an outside vendor. His attention to detail is extraordinary and he is quick and efficient. For Bollotta, there are no other web designers.”
5 years ago I started working with Steve Mckinnis for my web and graphic services. At that time I had an aol page and a business card that was pretty basic. I knew if my business was going to grow, I needed a new and professional look. Not being an artist I didn’t quite know how I was going to convey that vision. From our first meeting Steve was great!!! He was very easy to work with and made what I had thought was going to be a very difficult process a fun experience. It was so cool to see what I had explained actually coming to life but with so much more then I could have imagined. Steve took my tagline and branded me across the board with my website and business cards. Steve has always been very professional and a huge help when needing something updated or changed. I would say 50 percent of my business tell me they picked me due to look of my site. I always tell them you can have one just as cool and amazing and refer them to call Steve.

“It’s You!” has been the overall positive review for my website created by Steve McKinnis. With only my photographs along with contact information he created a dynamic, multi-functional, distinctive site that not only met my needs but completely reflected who I am as an actor. I have recommended him to many.”
Steve McKinnis is amazing at giving the customers like myself what they want in designing a new website and look for our Splash H2o website, Stevelistens and gave me options that I would not think was possible. the process was fast and he gets it done, with upgrades and can work well with anyone at any level of websign knowledge. I am having him rebuild my next website in keeping up with new looks and features!thanksSteve Mckinnis
give him a call!!!
Steve was highly recommended to me by my friend Jane at ‘Art Takes A Village’ who was thrilled with the site he had created for her. Since I wanted a very layered, highly stylized, French look & feel for my vintage home decor shop, I needed someone who could “get it” & create it from the boxes & files of ideas I had collected over a year’s time. Steve never flinched; he went thru everything I had gathered & then proceeded to miraculously create exactly what I had envisioned. This deserves such high praise as his ability to really listen, understand & then produce with his uber artistic talent, the spot-on vision that the client has, is what sets him apart. The day my site went up, it started receiving rave reviews for its’ ‘Wow’ factor & it perfectly represents my shop: vigenttesantiques.com… I then recommended him to the Ocean Beach Antique District for our group’s website that needed a total re-do & he created one with major impact that has put our district on the map. His photography, design work, creative input & ultimately the ability to pull it all together so brilliantly, is why Steve sets the gold standard for websites.
My highest praise to a phenomenal talent!
“Steve set up a web site, blog, twitter, facebook business page and gave us a real presence on line. We’d been going it for a long time without a web site and decided it was time. Steve told us everything we needed to know, set up our accounts, instructed us on how to tweet, blog and utilize our web presence to the utmost. The look and creativity he brought to the site has given us more attention then we thought possible in a very short amount of time. I highly recommend Steve! If you have been waiting to build a site or are unsure of what you need to do to get started, he’s definitely your guy!”
“I was lucky enough to come across Steve McKinnis and his amazing abilities with not only web design, but his photography, understanding my biz and what style it is, without me giving every detail to him. After we came to an understanding of what I wanted and what it would take a contract was sent and things moved forward fast and my site was done and launched before I knew it. My site now is not only a site that represents me and my biz, but is a site I enjoy and show everyone I can. All I can say is if you not only need but want a site.. He’s your man and easy to work with. Thank you.”
We first contacted Steve McKinnis about a year and a half ago to help us in developing a new web site for the Ocean Beach Antique District. Steve was exactly what we needed. He came to the group and made an impressive presentation, he listened to and met individually with each of four store owners. He developed an incredible site for us, did all the photography and design which resulted in this wonderful visually stunning web site. Through the entire experience Steve was so very accommodating, professional and available. The end result was a web site which successfully represents our entire district as well as meets the needs of the individual stores. Steve has continued to be extremely helpful and always available when we had questions or were looking for modifications. If you’re looking for someone with technical skill and confidence, as well as creativity and artistic talent, then Steve McKinnis is the guy to call. This new web site has been such an incredible boost to our business district and has become a great tool for us to reach out to our customers, don’t know why we hadn’t done it sooner!
