About us

Since 2005 we’ve been providing a full range of web design and other technical and communications services. Our team approach allows us to offer a broad spectrum of custom web and communications solutions at a fraction of the cost of some firms. Together, our team members and partners provide a unique blend of skills and experience that serve the needs of our many diverse clients.

Nicki Snoblin, owner of NextWord, has a strong background in communications, which forms our focus as we build effective websites and other projects for our clients. She guides clients through the content development process, helping them to frame their content concisely and clearly. Nicki handles the graphic design, page layout, navigation, form design and creation, and photo editing. In addition, she has many years of experience in writing, editing, design, and production of print publications.

Other team members and select partners have extensive expertise in information technology, business system architecture, database design, programming languages, graphic design, video production, and information security. This is key to offering our clients cost-effective services.
