About Us


We built our first website in 1998 and have been steadily keeping pace with the many changes and technical advances of the Internet ever since. E. Crane Web Design Studio’s principal, Katherine Barnes, began designing and developing interactive media in the early 80’s and has managed a wide range of projects for clients such as Federal Express, Northwest Airlines, and Polaroid.

Phil Wallingford, founder of E. Crane Computing, has over 30 years of experience as a programmer, program designer, and program manager.

Our Philosophy

We believe that dialog and a collaborative relationship are at the heart of every project, from beginning to end. Whether you choose to be highly involved or just want us to take over and make it happen for you is entirely your choice. We are always well-organized, taking time to properly define the scope of work, and carefully planning the visitor’s experience, in order to deliver a website that exceeds both client and visitor expectations. Being well-organized guarantees success and promotes good relationships.

We also believe that web development can be affordable. We use open source content management systems and software platforms to give our clients both cost savings and flexibility. We are a small company with low overhead. We work smartly, creatively, and efficiently to give our clients top quality sites at lower cost.


Your website needs to build a relationship between you and your clients, customers, or membership. And E. Crane needs to build a relationship with you, our client. Because we are a small web design studio, we actively maintain a close relationship with all our clients. We are always proactive in your behalf and pleased to advise should you have any questions.
