Cantus What?

Cantus Firmus LLC is an Oakland web design and solutions shop serving the web presence needs of non-profits and businesses of all sizes. Whether you need a full-scale ecommerce solution, a redesign of your 5-year-old site to make it more mobile friendly, or you just need a few fixes, you can expect a friendly, creative and practical approach to your problems. As of 2015 we are now also adding mobile app development to our service offerings.

Run by a 18-year+ veteran web developer with experience as an in-house problem solver, a team member at a Top-10 Silicon Valley web/marketing agency and as an independent contractor, Cantus Firmus takes pride in the ability to offer a polished and effective solution for just about any kind of web site problem. We enjoy the process of breaking things down to manageable tasks and helping clients figure out what they need, and we love opportunities to steer folks away from unnecessarily complicated or expensive solutions.
