About Us

 

FlagstaffOur 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 business entity in 2003. We did a fair amount of research before settling on a name. The word Magi, pronounced maji, with a soft “g” and a long “i”, has carried several meanings over the centuries. The one that resonated the most with us in the beginning is “wise men from the east” - as we are wise in the ways of the web, and started out in eastern NC. It is important to note that as we've grown, so too has our workforce, which is made up of both male and female professionals - each working their own magic to fulfill our client's needs.


A Distributed Team


Web Magi is comprised of a distributed team of highly skilled professionals in the fields of website, mobile app, and game design, development, marketing, management, and sales & business development. Team members are activated per project based on the skills and workforce required to complete the project on time and within budget. This allows us to be incredibly agile; scaling our workforce up or down as needed to accommodate each project.

As a distributed team, our process is not just about taking a multidisciplinary approach to solving complex problems, it's also about what we've learned lately coupled with broad experiential diversity, know-how, and a knack for finding the right balance between all of these for each client. What we do is not a stagnate process that can be labeled and laid claim to. It is a movement; a flow that you either become integrated with or eventually slip out of. Eighteen years and hundreds of paid projects later, Web Magi is still in the flow.

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.
