AI-enhanced web-design-professionals

“Creativity is intelligence having fun.” – Albert Einstein

Even though we can be playful and vibrant, rest assured—we seiously know our stuff.

DuckByte was founded by two web professionals who have worked in the trenches of web design, copywriting, coding, and graphic design for many years, hand-holding entrepreneurs of local and international scope as we developed and upgraded their web presences. As writers, we draw from a background in linguistics, academia, literature, poetry, comedy, improv, brand names, informative/persuasive copy, and UX design. Like an iceberg floating by, the 10% of what you see on this website is supported by years of experience, a broad vision of where web marketing has been, continual alertness to emerging web trends (did we mention AI?), a user and customer-centric philosophy, plus humor, one-to-one engagement, active listening, and a personal commitment to expansion in physical health, emotional intelligence, and consciousness.

Yes, we’ve been busy

Soul Salt Ink & Expedition

DuckByte's one-year anniversary milestone sees launch of  our recent collaboration with the multi-talented Anya Charles. Together, we’ve crafted a professional website that embodies her two distinct business streams: Professional Writing and Travel Agent. Anya's passion and determined savvy have truly inspired us, and it's been an honor to partner with her.

My Commons

Tasked with designing an affordable website for a non-profit, we set long-term goals for a membership platform and short-term objectives to facilitate a quick launch with a small budget. By leveraging AI-generated art, this project showcases our expertise in effective web design and strategic solutions. 



The MOJO Superwalker®

From inception to execution, this project epitomized our commitment to collaboration and creativity. We spearheaded product naming, logo design, AI integration, web development, and more, while embracing the visionary spirit of our clients. Together, we transformed bold ideas into tangible realities, exemplifying our passion for co-creation and innovation. https://mojosuperwalker.com/ 

The Floating Bed Co.

DuckByte's inaugural project involved an extensive site design redo. Upgrading a previous website with nonstandard navigation elements and a need for upgraded visuals to match the quality of the product. In many cases using AI tools for handling text and creating visuals speeded the process and lowered costs. https://floatingbed.com/ 


SportsConscious, a DuckByte initiative in web design and marketing, we are hoping to be a part of the revolution in Name Image Likness (NIL) financing in higher education. Our platform empowers athletes and institutions, focusing on NAIA schools. Currently in prototype stage, we're excited to be a part of reshaping the collegiate sports landscape. https://miu.sportconscious.org/

Kurai Dreams

Introducing Kurai Dreams, a testament to our professional development, fusing inspiration with technology. This DuckByte initiative seamlessly blends storytelling with web design, immersing users in a manga-style experience. Beyond the site, we've self-published both the manga and a full-color book, along with crafting 100 TikTok AI animated videos, showcasing innovation across mediums. https://kuraidreams.com/

Fairfield Tennis

Paul was approached to develop a web presence for a local tennis association and created this site in the Wordpress Elegant Themes ecosystem, adding a calendar widget, videos, AI art galleries, blog posts and match reports. The regional office now plans to market his services throughout the Midwest.


Our Skills

At your service

soft skills and hard skills

The Marriage of Soft and Strong

Potential employers these days want to see resumes that list both soft and hard skills. They don’t want to just know if you have html/css skills or what project management programs you used at your last place of employment, they want to try to peek into what kind of person you are. Are you on-time, are you dependable, are you a good team player? Do you play nice? They want to know a bit about what is under the surface, and they have no choice but to use keywords and database searches to do this. Quite an impersonal way to find the right person.

Wouldn’t it be nice if AI could just write your resume for you (it can) and just go find that job for you with those searches while you brush up on your golf or couch-lounging skills?  Read full post >

From DuckByte Clients

Partnering with Alesia and Paul at DuckByte is always a blend of professionalism,  creative collaboration… and fun.

I couldn’t be happier with the custom website DuckByte developed. They created a seamless, unified platform for my freelance writing and travel agency work. Working with Alesia and Paul was a pleasure—they were professional, timely, and incredibly attentive to every detail. I’m thrilled with the outcome and highly recommend DuckByte!
Anya Charles

Ownner, Soul Salt Ink and Expeditions

Paul & Alesia surpassed my expectations. They went beyond the call of duty on every detail – writing, layout, creativity in addition to what I provided them with, and more. They came in on time (unheard of?),  and the site is practical, beautiful, and already moving up in the rankings. I am really grateful for their service. I am also happy that I will never have to spend my time vetting a web design team again, now that I found a keeper.

John Huff

CEO, The Floating Bed

DuckByte and its people were recommended to us by a trusted source, and we have been delighted to find them not only highly skillful in web design but also deeply engaged in learning about and helping market our product. We are in an early stage of our product’s life cycle while we await a patent, and we plan to partner with DuckByte in our national launch when the time is right.

Paul Stokstad stepped in when we were floundering around… He knows all the details of web design and worked with us to make a website that was light years beyond what we were capable of.

You’ll certainly be hard-pressed to find a multi-talented digital marketing professional with the high level of experience that Paul brings to the table.

Dustin Matos

With Alesia’s expertise, I feel really supported in any new approaches I might want to take in marketing. I am very impressed with help she provides with my website management needs that I don’t have the knowledge or the capability to do.
