Award-Winning Design Meets the Functional Website

Softshell Design, LLC. has been in business for over 12 years now. We are located in Palmetto Bay, Florida (south of Miami), and work with businesses across the United States. With over thirty years of combined experience, our ability to refine, redesign and rework your website is unquestionable.

We take the time and effort to evaluate a project’s scope before commencement, which enables us to work together seamlessly. We give you realistic timelines and reliable service. It is the combination of our efforts that will produce a brand new site that both our firms can be proud of.

Geeksharks Collective

Softshell Design has just joined forces with our industry friends to create the Geeksharks collective!

We’re a close-knit team of professionals who frequently collaborate on a multitude of projects. Our skills cover a wide array of tech and design disciplines (stacks), in Europe and the US, for clients of all sizes. If your team is in need of support or advice, chances are high that Geeksharks can deliver.

Strength In Numbers

As business owners ourselves, we love the independence of running small talented teams. We are all very lucky that we’re good at what we do, and doubly lucky to have found some great clients over the years. That said however, it’s a big tech world out there and there is no way any one of us on our own can muster all the skills needed by our clients.

We wound up working together all the time, and from those collaborations came this, Geeksharks. A great way for our teams to present themselves as one.
