We don't just build websites — we build relationships.
Imagine having a trusted partner who took the time get to know you, to understand your business, and wants to help you reach your goals — someone you could depend on to be there to offer their expertise, look out for you and your best interests, answer all of your questions, make your business look fantastic, not nickel-and-dime you, and give you peace of mind. Say hello to JVM.
We're not just another
web design company.
A few words from our Creative Director, Sherry Holub...
The year was 1995 and I'd just graduated from UCLA with a degree in art. 22-year-old me didn't know what else to do with a degree in art and a background in photography other than keep freelancing like I had been, or just go ahead and form a new company. I went for the latter, and JVM was born.
Diving right in and doing business with real clients and real projects gave me the type of experience you just can't get from school, and it didn't take long for me to realize that being creative and making something look great doesn't automatically get results for your clients.
Luckily for me (and my clients), I quickly discovered the missing pieces. Design needs to have a purpose. Who is the audience? What are the goals of the project? What action should the design be facilitating in the audience? After combining marketing principles with design, things got a lot busier. I started to build a great team of people and as the technology evolved, so did we.
It goes without saying that when you work with JVM, we guarantee you'll get a modern and technically sound website delivered, but our true value is that we become your trusted partner. We truly care about you, your business, and your success. We've got your back. The additional services and long-time support we provide combined with knowledge, expertise, and results, are added bonuses.
Also on top of that, we eliminate stress and worry for our small business and non-profit organization clients. Once people work with us, they want to hold on to us! Many of our clients have been with us for 5 or more years, and the very first client we ever built a website for (way back in 1995) is still a client today.
So, let's talk. No pressure. Let's just sort out how we can alleviate your worries and help you reach your goals.

Sherry was featured on the Rebelpreneur podcast with Ralph Brogden in September of 2019.

Creative Director, Wizard of Design, Magic Maker: Sherry Holub
Ever since I won a Halloween poster contest at the age of 8 with black crayon shavings and cotton balls, everyone knew I was destined to use my creative brain in a career capacity. A self-proclaimed introvert with the ability to make things happen, I now have over 20 years of experience helping businesses get real results with handcrafted design and personalized service. I'm an advocate for education, a member of prestigious design organizations, won awards, and been invited to judge design competitions. In addition to art and design, I have a heavy background in photography and love writing.
I'm also a friend to all cats and rabbits, love sci-fi, and originally wanted to be an archaeologist. When not working, you'll find me doing things like getting outdoors, practicing Qi Gong, snowboarding, camping, collecting rocks, and either driving around in my Jeep Wrangler or cruising in my restored, 1970 Camaro.
