Okay, okay. So it’s not a real word. Technically, incognito is an unpaired word, which has no root that stands on its own. So we made one. It defines who we are and what we do.

Being a cog in a machine may carry negative connotations, but it’s those moving parts that make things work. We’re taking cog back by owning our technical prowess and our love for crafting innovation.

We are unashamedly geeky and proud of our passion.

While it may seem obvious, too many firms forget the reason why they’re in business. We make what the client needs. We make what people need. And we never overlook the fact that design is meant to solve problems and make life easier for the people who use it.

People ignore design that ignores people.

We wouldn’t be much use if we only made pretty designs without a purpose. We’re a full-stack design shop: Research, concept, design, and execution. That being said, we’re also a bit old-fashioned. We rely on paper sketches and hand-typed code because we love our craft and we know the importance of having total control of our tools.

Started from the bottom; now we’re here.

Cogneedo has only existed in its current form since 2013. Since then, we have worked with many small businesses around the country, spreading our love of multimedia to the masses.

We adhere to HTML5 standards and take a modular approach to our designs and code. Our projects are constructed from a kit of parts based on our clients’ brands and objectives.

We design and curate a comprehensive and cohesive website experience, from admin backend to public-facing frontend, from social media outreach to converting visitors to customers. We don’t overlook the important stuff.

I know the price of success: dedication, hard work, and an unremitting devotion to the things you want to see happen.
Frank Lloyd Wright

We do work that we’re proud of, plain and simple. Our design and development team will work closely with your business to achieve something you can be proud of too.

We are inherently geeky.

We’ve been tinkerers since birth. We tear things apart and rebuild them from the ground up. We love to learn and solve problems and develop an intimate understanding of the inner workings of what we do. We’ve always loved making things, and our medium of choice is pixels and code.

When the Web was new, we learned how to add our voices to this new communication platform with wonder and amazement. Hypertext was magic. Learning to code was incredibly empowering.

When the Internet first came, I thought it was just the beacon of freedom. People could communicate with anyone, anywhere, and nobody could stop it.
Steve Wozniak

From the early days of the Web, to the birth of CSS, to the glory days of Web 2.0, we’ve been there. And we’ve built it. Our tools have changed over the years, but we’ve always held onto our love of learning and creating something new.

HTML5 and responsive web design are the latest tools of the trade. Combined with extensive database-driven content and Javascript programming, we can design and construct pretty much anything. All we need is you.

Good things come from small businesses.

The great thing about being a two-person team is that it allows us to do things on our own terms and be passionate in our own way.

Those who say ‘it’s not personal, it’s just business’ are lying. All business is personal, and the best business is very personal.
