Bearded is a design and web development agency that specializes in responsive content-managed websites and custom applications for the modern, multi-device web. Bearded was founded on the belief that great web design requires close collaboration between designers and developers throughout every project. We're committed to helping move the web forward, and incorporating the most successful and future-friendly technologies in our work.
Bearded is located in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Our designs have been featured in HOW Design’s Interactive Annual, on the Communication Arts website, in design exhibitions, as well as numerous web design galleries. Our writing about the web can be found on web design journals like A List Apart and .net magazine, as well as our own Bearded blog.
I would like Bearded to stop making the rest of us look so bad.
