Big Bear Websites
Big Bear Websites is a division of Big Bear Software. We are a Web Design, Branding and Development agency dedicated to helping businesses be the best they can be by creating unique, responsive websites for companies that are just starting to those with an established presence.
Whether you have a vision or have no idea what you need, we work closely with you to build a brand, website or web application that you will be proud to show your customers and employees. We have local designers and developers that work closely together to bring together design and programming modern best practices to create a website that will be great for years to come.
We hear over and over again that there is a lack of trust and responsiveness with web developers. We pride ourselves on the maintainability of our software and our processes, so that whether you are a brand new client or someone we haven't heard from in five years, we listen, respond & deliver.

Michale Jegen - VP Development at Energy Navigator Inc.
Working with big bear has been great. They have been able to figure out the details of complex projects quickly and with minimal direction. Responsiveness to questions or changes has exceeded expectations. Short time-frames have not posed a problem. I have no trouble recommending big bear to anyone who is looking for a qualified, competent development team.
Margaux Myers - Value Navigator Product Manager at Energy Navigator Inc.
Big Bear is always a pleasure to work with! We are always surprised by the amount of quality work that they are able to complete during each software sprint. We trust big bear to complete our most complex and sensitive projects on time and on budget. They provide excellent value for money, are easy to deal with, and communications are exceptional. We have been working with Big Bear for 10 years without any problems.

The initial meeting introduces you to the design, development and management team. We get to know each other and set goals for the project. This meeting helps us understand your needs and desires. We work to understand your business and help you understand the design and development process.
We listen to what your favorite websites are, what style you are looking for and gather information about your existing branding and design assets. By the end of this meeting we understand what you need and start the creative process.Read more
The Drawing Board
After we have our first initial meeting, we go straight to the drawing board with what was talked about and outlined, by this we mean: colour schemes, website examples (positive and negative), initial logo concepts, initial homepage concepts and more.
You will be working along-side with our in-house designer to create the perfect visual representation for your company/brand. We have numerous design revision stages which allows our clients to try different looks and feels when it comes to logos, website design, and web-forms.
Our goal is to provide you designs that exceed your expectations from the Initial Meeting.Read more
The Programming Process
We will provide updates to you as the site is progressing so you can see your Website come to life. Our developers are experts in not just responsive design, but responsive communication.Read more
