32spokes takes its name from the spokes of a bicycle – individually each slender spoke is part of a whole that makes for a robust, resilient wheel.
We carry that analogy to each website we design. We get to know your customers and your business goals, then we put the strands together to build a strategy that engages your customers and delights you. It is very holistic approach.
There’s a little more to the bicycle theme – owner Robert Dall loves to pedal. And, his first web building contract was with a bike shop, so the name is an homage to that initiation as well.
Who is 32spokes?
After spending 10 years with a camera hanging from his neck working in the news media, Robert Dall found his love of telling a good story to be a doorway into a new career in web design.
Robert has been a professional web designer for 5 years now and has stopped counting the list of WordPress websites he has created on his fingers and toes. He loves drinking amazing coffee, still schleps his camera around and conducts his daily business and personal errands on his trusty bike. He splits his time between the small community of Sechelt, BC and the West Coast metropolis of Vancouver, Canada.
The majority of Robert’s training and experience has come from an exhaustive list of Meetups, WordCamps, but also has a Diploma in Journalism Arts and Certificate in New Media Design & Web Development.
Yin Maung recently joined 32spokes as a project manager for some of our larger jobs. She is a web designer and instructor at Farleigh-Dickinson University in Vancouver.
Yin has 10 years of experience in website development as web consultant and content specialist with both a Bachelor’s degree in Marketing and Master of Arts in Communication and Technology.
List of our Contractors
32spokes has contracted a number of professionals and service provides to provide you with the best workflow to complete your project. Here is the short list of our talented collaborators and service providers:
Blue Moon Publishing
Jools Andrés of provides content creation and copy editing services. She’s paid her dues in the ad agency world and has worked as a journalist, newspaper editor and communications specialist. She is happiest when she’s whittling words.
We also work with Eric Pinfold and his wide-ranging clients on the web. Eric, a project and production manager, is Creative Director at Phitted Design. Oh, and we’re just a little jealous of the treehouse studio he has in Roberts Creek on the Sunshine Coast.
Greg Burnison is a skilled web developer who can see far beyond the surface of things. Whenever we have something that requires a heavy amount of custom code, Greg is our go-to guy. He calls himself the resident code monkey, but we know he’s a lot more than that.
Site5 Web Hosting
We have been fans of Site5 since a client introduced them in 2010. We were so impressed with there level of customer service and speed of there servers we moved our hosting and have never looked back. Ben Welch-bolen and his crack crew of professionals have provided some of the best customer service for hosting that the web has to offer.
We could have hired a bookkeeper to do our accounting, but we hired (100 + and growing) internet/bookkeeping professionals instead. The electronic billing and payment gateway are pretty savvy and many clients have commented on how easy and cool the system is. Based in Toronto, they understand the needs of a Canadian company and let us focus on what we do – making great websites for you!
Since we started using Dropbox, both our clients and contractors love its ease of use and sharing aspects. With our ever-increasing mobile lives it’s great to have our files at the ready wherever we are, whenever we need them.
