Web Design is a woman-owned business
Green Web Design is owned by Jessica Franke,
a web designer and online
marketing professional who has been a computer geek
since the day she first laid eyes on one. Her love
affair with computers began in 1985, when she was 8
years old, and received a Commodore 64 for Christmas.
She tossed Barbie and Ken aside without
a second thought, and immediately started learning
to use basic (with a little help from
Commodore Magazine). The rest, as they say, is history...

began Green Web Design as a "nights and weekends" venture
in 1995, while I was going to college for Environmental
Science. However, my love of computers actually
goes back to my childhood.
I was in the gifted student program at my grade school,
where we were lucky enough to take a few classes
each day entirely in the computer lab. As you may
imagine, gaining access to a computer at home when I was 8 years old was a dream come true.
few years later, I began borrowing my
cousin's commodore 128 after he got a much
faster computer. Eventually, I got a secondhand
Apple IIE; after that, a long series of secondhand
IBM and Compaq 286's, 386's, and 486's, bought from
a local college for $25 each, which I learned a lot
from. And later still, my friends taught me how to
build a computer starting from an empty case, and
I began custom building my own PCs from scratch,
for myself and for clients.
Through all of these
years, I also worked other jobs. In my teens and
early 20's, I waitressed. A lot. Later, I worked
in Tech Support for ExecPC in New Berlin, WI. After
that, I worked for as a database analyst for a software
company. And in 2005, I decided to go full time with
Green Web Design.
I have over 24 years of computer-related experience,
and many happy
customers. A large number of my clients are
in the greater Milwaukee and Waukesha areas in Wisconsin,
but I happily accept clients from anywhere in the
of my current clients are as far and wide as New
York, Oregon, New Hampshire, California, and Arizona,
to name a few.
Most of my business comes from word
of mouth and online advertising. I don't advertise
in the phone book, on billboards, or other expensive
mediums. I also don't believe in what I call "intrusive
I don't hire telemarketers, employ cold-calling techniques,
or do any kind of email based advertising.
My main focus, for myself and my customers, is Internet

registering their domain names, choosing
a web hosting plan, SSL certificates, and other

related aspects of design. I perform Keyword
