Our History

Doug Ward, Founder & Principal of WatersWard, has been developing web sites for over 15 years. A few years into his career he read a book called, “Don’t Make Me Think,” and it changed everything. Very simply, the book is about how to develop websites that are that are easy to use. At the time (and maybe even still) the web was flooded with overly complex websites that were hard to use, hard to like, and not very successful.
