From our customers:

  • Richard’s Rainwater

    “It’s so nice to get compliments – and I mean lots of compliments – on the website and print work that Cold Shower Design has designed for us. What’s even better is the increase in business that their webmastery has generated. But best of all, they are so fun to work with.”

  • Triple Mint Real Estate

    “Working with Trent and Justin was a real pleasure. They understood just what feel we wanted to convey with the website and designed a site we love. And we continue to get compliments on the site 6 years after it was built. Their follow up on questions and a few additions we have made over the years has been great. I highly recommend Cold Shower Design.”

  • AllClear ID

    “When AllClear ID went searching for a Web Development team to help with the ongoing management and support of its consumer and corporate website, we evaluated a number of firms. However none of them had the level of web design and web development experience we needed with the exception of Cold Shower Design. They were able to convert our existing website over to a Content Management System while also provide much needed support with our new site layout and design. It’s been smooth sailing since launch and we are confidently moving forward knowing that we’ve chosen the right partner to support and maintain our website.”

We are Cold Shower Design – Austin web design and web development specialists based in East Austin, Texas. We offer custom website design, custom website development, website hosting, logo design and graphic design. We enjoy our work and like the people that we work with. Our clients, near and far, favor our clean and organized designs and custom solutions. Our websites are based on open-source development, which allows for scalability.

At Cold Shower Design, we have been creating web sites since 2006.  Over all of these years, we have learned that the best approach is to front-load the web design project with thorough conversation about your web design goals and paths we may take to reach those goals.  This extensive conversation gives us the opportunity to get to know each other, explore what you like and don’t like in the web design world, and share a mental image of what Coldshower Design will aim to create before we ever put pen to paper.

We base most of our web development projects on open-source Content Management Systems (CMSes) such as WordPress, Joomla, Concrete5, and Drupal. These products are great and get us most of what we need for the nuts and bolts of how your website will work. However, it is usually the case that some of the most critical functions of a website are unique to your business and require custom programming.

We have extensive experience custom coding websites in a LAMP environment (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) and even more valuable than our coding ability is our ability to listen to your business needs and translate those needs into web-based solutions.

We look forward to hearing from you and discussing your next web site project!
