Leaders in Responsive Web Development

Web developers are faced with a big challenge: the ever-fragmenting screen size. Users browse the web on hundreds of sizes of screens; from the tiniest smart phones to the largest flat-screen TVs. How do we make sure the sites we create look and function their best in all of these formats? The answer: responsive design. This technique adapts the site's content and layout to fit perfectly with the screen width.

With our first responsive site launched in 2011, we pioneered the technology in Fort Wayne. Though it spread like wildfire, we have the largest and most diverse responsive portfolio in town. Whether your needs are simple or complex, from a small nonprofit's site to a large regional airport hub, we can help. If you want your website to look stunning on any screen, from an iPhone to a Samsung TV, we're your agency.

  • "Nate and his team carefully listen and work hard with clients to understand their specific needs. Not only did they design a professional looking site with all of the functionalities we desired, they advised and guided us on ways to organize and improve our overall web presentation."

Nate Reusser

Owner, Web Designer

Nate Reusser founded Reusser Design back in 1999 as a high school student. What started as a Mac G3 tower in his bedroom at his parents' house has turned into a nine person team in a beautiful office in Roanoke, Indiana.

With a passion for helping people and an unending fascination for technology, Nate's been able to grow his business because it gives him the best of those worlds. He comes from an entrepreneurial family; both parents and grandparents ran their own businesses.

Along with his wife, Julie, and inspired by his three daughters (every day is full of beautiful chaos at his house!), Nate feels fortunate to work with great clients and to see the impact of the work that he's done for them.

When he's not working (but let's face it, when you own your own business, you're always working), he's spending some QT with his daughters, his wife and his family. Sometimes that involves coloring pictures during a fancy tea party, and sometimes that involves hiking through the Grand Canyon — far, far away from the technology that's so ubiquitous in his life.

Julie Reusser

Vice President

Julie Reusser is the Vice-President of Reusser Design, and if we're the land of Oz, she's the woman behind the curtain. She quietly and (seemingly) effortlessly keeps things running smoothly — from HR functions and finances, to operations and even interior design decisions in the office. Without Julie, our developers would be sitting in piles of their own paperwork, typing on computers that aren't plugged in. Anarchy.

Originally from the Valley of the Sun (Phoenix, Arizona), she came to Northeast Indiana to attend Huntington University. That's where she met Nate, and where they began their professional and personal lives together. While this is now her home, she definitely misses the sunny Arizona weather — long cold Hoosier winters are definitely not her thing.

After working in the banking industry for several years, she joined Reusser Design in 2006 and hasn't looked back. But for as much as she does for the company, family is very important to Julie. She spends much of her time with her three daughters to help guide them into intelligent, ethical young women. And, of course, throwing the occasional impromptu dance party.

When Julie finds a little time for herself, she's digging into a good book or playing volleyball.

Nick Johnson

Head of Web & Mobile Development

Nick Johnson, a seasoned developer and all-around interesting guy, heads up mobile and web development initiatives. In that role, he oversees the adherence to best practices, defines and implements modern solutions, and generally improves the way we create our product.

Having worked for some of Fort Wayne’s largest companies and many of its agencies, Nick's strength is being able to see the big picture while still focusing on the details. He is equally at ease architecting and building complex solutions and communicating those solutions to our clients in terms they can understand.

When Nick isn't editing tiny code on a big screen — headphones on and hyper-focused — he is probably still writing code someplace, or thinking about code, or busy fragging n00bs on whatever the new online game is this week.

Oh, and Kent lies.

Kent Pribbernow

Lead Front-end Web & Mobile Developer, PHP Developer

Chock-full of experience in all areas of web design and development, Kent approaches each project with a passion for interactive development. His early background as a web designer included work that was featured in Smashing Magazine and other online publications. He has since made the transition from designer to developer, living and breathing HTML5, CSS3, Javascript and PHP. With his broad skill set in development for responsive web and mobile apps, and an eye for great design, he is a valuable asset to the team.

When he's not writing code, Kent is engaged in a bitter ongoing territorial dispute over desk space with our head of development, Nick Johnson. (Nick steals.)

Jarrod Nix

PHP and Front-end Web Developer

Jarrod Nix is a talented PHP and front-end developer. A classic problem-solver, nothing makes him happier than firing up his Mac, putting on his headphones, diving into code and figuring out problems, efficiently and elegantly.

Besides spending time with his family, Jarrod is an avid video gamer, an enthusiastic LEGO-builder (especially if his four year-old son is helping), and collecting and listening to classic music memorabilia.

Do you have any interesting Beatles collectibles he can take off your hands? Jarrod will be in touch.

Javon Bell

Web Designer & Front-end Developer

Javon Bell is our web designer and front-end web developer. He graduated from IPFW in 2013 with a degree in Graphic Design. He’s the definition of a self-taught man — while he was there, he began to teach himself how to construct semantic front-end code along with learning the principles of web design.

User experience and design is his number one priority when constructing any website. His speciality is creating fluid responsive sites that look fantastic on any screen: from the smallest smart phone to the largest television.

In his free time, Javon relishes spending time with his fiancé Brittany, and reading/watching/playing anything basketball related. Even his two cats are named after b-ball players (Kobe and Charles Barkley). He’s currently accepting challengers on the court.

Any takers?
