Designing and engineering smart digital solutions for today’s business leaders

Our mission at Crowd Favorite is to enhance everyone's digital experience by providing business leaders with innovative and versatile solutions. We take that mission seriously, and strive to accomplish it better each day.

Crowd Favorite was formed in 2014 by three best-of-breed digital firms

VeloMedia

Client-centered account management

Founded in 2007, VeloMedia specialized in running mission-critical digital projects for enterprise and Fortune 500 companies. The company was known for its ability to provide stability, process, infrastructure, and account management appropriate for high-profile projects where failure wasn’t an option.

Forty

User experience design

Opened in 2003, Forty existed to create remarkable digital experiences that solved problems for users through human-centered design. In the years that followed, the firm became known for its ability to expertly craft brands and experiences that resonated with customers.

Crowd Favorite

The original WordPress agency

Also established in 2007, Crowd Favorite was the very first digital agency focused primarily on the WordPress platform. Through years of experience working on enterprise-grade digital problems, Crowd Favorite set the bar for world-class web engineering, systems integration, and heavily customized content management.

We’ve built a company that’s exceptional in the areas of design, technology, and project management.

That’s an unusual accomplishment, and we’re proud of having pulled it off.
