Design philosophy
Navigating a website should be effortless.
We've all had to suffer the frustration of stumbling through a poorly designed website. This experience can feel like trying to walk a maze in the dark.
We strive to merge aesthetic with function because  navigating a website should be as effortless as walking along a thoughtfully designed garden path. There's plenty of beauty along the way, but ultimately the website seamlessly facilitates movement from point A to point B.

Gabe LW

Chapter 1
Gabe Has a Goal 🎯
Growing up with two parents who run small businesses, I’ve always been deeply inspired by individuals who turn their passion into their livelihood. Since we spend most of our waking lives working, I believe doing what we love is a crucial step on the path of happiness. Thus, I made it my goal to find the “Thing” I loved that could be turned into a fulfilling career.
Chapter 2
Gabe Seeks the "Thing" 🤔
As I grew and discovered new interests, I kept my goal in mind. I love fitness, so I started training clients in the gym; I greatly enjoy being outdoors, so I started a fully electric lawn mowing business. While these pursuits were fulfilling, they weren’t “it”.
As I started my final semester of college, I realized that if I allowed myself to be open, what I was seeking would find me.
Chapter 3
Gabe Finds the "Thing" 🎯
Shortly after accepting the “Thing” would find me, I had the opportunity to redesign my dad’s company website as a project for a college course. I loved the process from the first keystroke. The amount of joy and fulfillment I experienced sealed the deal. I had found the “Thing”.
Chapter 4
Gabe Forms a Plan 📝
The plan was simple. Put the necessary work and study into web design until I had the skills to get hired to do what I love.
Chapter 5
Gabe Launches GLW Design 🚀
After thousands of hours of study, practice, and building websites for friends and family, I officially launched GLW Design with the goal of helping small businesses provide their customers with meaningful web experiences.
The End
Happily Ever After... 📖
I’ve shared this story in an effort to demonstrate what this business means to me. My clients are the reason I get to do what I love for a living, and I’m incredibly grateful for their support.
Now that you’ve gotten to know me a little bit, I look forward to learning about you and your business endeavors!
