What We Do

While we love creating websites from design to implementation, our specialty is front-end design & development. We have a track record of implementing large-scale front-end architecture and design updates for high profile websites with complex and heavy content needs. The quality of our code is exceptional, our sites are lightweight and fast, and we build our sites to be scalable so that our client’s investment will continue to pay off as technology changes over time.

How We Work

Through our innovative design and development methods, you are constantly kept in the loop of the project lifecycle. We create and communicate in an iterative process to ensure every aspect of your website is to your liking. The idea of the “big reveal” at the end of a project’s timeline isn’t something we think makes for a great product. In order to achieve the best possible end product, we believe the client should be involved every step of the way.


Who We Are

Southleft began as the freelance business of owner and Lead Web Designer, TJ Pitre. TJ has over 10 years of experience in the web design and development industry gained through his work with design agencies and in-house digital teams. Within the past five years, TJ’s skillset in navigating web projects of all sizes combined with his wife Katie’s business management experience has led to the growth of Southleft into a full-fledged boutique agency.

Southleft has a specialized focus on designing and developing websites that are custom tailored to the client’s specific web needs. We value the relationships we have with each of our clients and maintain a close, friendly interaction throughout the course of a project and beyond. If all of this sounds like the right fit for your project, feel free to contact us so we can begin a conversation.
