Friends of The Web is a small digital agency in Baltimore, Maryland.

We build websites and mobile applications for organizations who are leaders in their fields.


We pride ourselves on working with outstanding partners from a wide range of industries. From type designers and indepdendent retailers to cultural institutions and research labs — we provide design and development services to help our clients realize their goals.

We use design sprints to better understand the problems we’re solving and communicate our client’s ideas.


Our design sprints allow us to test assumptions about a new product or feature without the expense of complete implementation. The resulting prototype can be used for presentations, user testing, or simply internal evaluation before embarking on an extensive project.

We provide ongoing support and maintenance to keep our client’s sites up and to improve them iteratively over time.


We maintain sites for our clients by updating software and dependencies, monitoring usage and bug reports, assisting with customer support, and making technical recommendations for the future.


Our interdisciplinary team works side-by-side every day in our Baltimore offices. We’re generalists with overlapping skill sets, including design, web and iOS development, writing, type design, and podcasting.
