We love creating things that make both you and your customers smile.
Icon Creative Works, a division of Metaleater Media Inc., is a small web design and development studio based in Cloverdale, British Columbia, about 40 minutes from Vancouver. We've been building beautiful, accessible websites for businesses and individuals like you since 1999.
The Personal Touch
You won't find any corporate mumbo jumbo here. We stay small so we can give each project our personal attention and maintain great long-term relationships with our clients. It's just one of the reasons why you'll enjoy working with us. Oh, and when you contact us, you'll actually speak to a real human being, not a machine. How's that for 21st century technology?
Do It Right, First Time and Every Time
We put 110% into everything we do and we care about doing a great job from start to finish. Whether it's building a new website or improving an existing one, we're not happy until your project meets its full potential.
We Treat Clients as Partners
Our job is to help you best achieve your business goals, but we can't do it alone. We believe teamwork always achieves the best results. That's why when you become a client you become our partner too. We keep you involved every step of the way, because it's paramount to your project's success.

How We Work
First we get things rolling by talking about your project. We'll ask you important questions about your needs, goals, target audience, and project expectations to move forward. Grab our Project Worksheet to get a head start.
Planning is essential. We conduct business analysis, audience research and idea generation techniques to help us gain valuable insights into your project. Then we work with you to develop a clear content strategy, set the guidelines, requirements and scope for the entire project, and define roles of all involved.
This is where ideas take shape. We create design sketches, wireframes, and flowcharts on paper for website prototyping, usability testing and information architecture. This allows us to fix any problems and pick out new or missed opportunities before production begins, ensuring a fantastic finished product.
Time to open our creative toolbox. We build your site with lean code and flexible pixels, so you'll see exactly how it will look and function right in the browser. Rest assured, when we're done your site will have been routinely tested for a happy, robust life.
After all that awesome teamwork, your site goes live worldwide. We'll make sure your site is ready for the big time, equipped with all the appropriate tools and ingredients to live long and prosper. High-fives included.
