Our base of operations is located in Flagstaff Arizona - the oasis in the desert. This beautiful city is right at 7,000 feet above sea level, so we rarely experience the high temperatures known to other regions in Arizona. The annual rain and snowfall ensure that we have plenty of greenery, something you might not expect considering we are surrounded by desert.
We are situated near the base of the majestic San Francisco Peaks, so named in 1629 in honor of Saint Francis of Assisi by Friars who had established a mission at the Hopi village Oraibi, some 65 miles away. This extinct volcano is considered to be of great spiritual energy. Nestled amid the Coconino National Forest, we enjoy the casual lifestyle of a small town. The people here in Flagstaff are truly amazing.
Magi - What's in a Name?
Starting out as a side business in 1998, Web Magi became an official full-time web design business entity in 2003. We did a fair amount of research before settling on a name. The word Magi, pronounced maji, has carried several meanings over the centuries. The one that resonated the most with us was “wise men from the east” - as we are wise in the ways of the web, and hail from eastern NC.
A Multidisciplinary Approach
We take a considerable amount of pride and joy in our work, having successfully carried hundreds of paid client projects from concept, to design, development, production, content recommendation and restructure, to SEO, analytics, marketing, and site launch.
For us, having a dual focus as designer & developer, we naturally take a multidisciplinary approach to solving complex problems. It's about what we've learned lately coupled with broad experiential diversity, know-how, and a knack for finding the right balance between scope and budget for each client. Our objective with every project is to first understand your needs and project goals. We then map out the scope of your project based on budget and timing. This attention to detail ensures that we get the job done right, on time, and within budget.
With a talent for learning, adapting, and refining methods and procedures, we enter into every project with a clear goal and a fresh perspective. We put ourselves 100% into everything that we do. Meaning that whatever we choose to focus our time and energy on, it then becomes a personal statement of who we are.
