What We Do

Virtual Crayon helps Civil Engineering Firms, Organizations, and Small Businesses increase their impact and engagement with story-driven copywriting, websites, landing pages, print media and SEO.

  • Web Design & Development

    In many cases, the website is your First Impression. People judge a company or product within SECONDS of clicking. We help make it a good experience for everyone.

  • Print & Graphic Design

    Identity and branding is so much more than just a logo. Flyers, brochures, posters, business cards, RFPs and SOQs - all collateral materials are part of branding.

  • Content and Copywriting

    Whether it's a brochure or a website, it all starts with content. We help clients come up with great content, headlines, and taglines that communicate your message and values.

  • SEO and Marketing Strategy

    A nice website is not enough to compete, so we offer comprehensive on-page SEO, Social Media strategy, advertising, and other Marketing Strategies.


Featured Work

We are proud to have been involved in so many different projects. From websites, print design, book covers, and posters... the following is a sample of our work.

We worked with ARS Engineers to create a bifold brochure that explained their SUE (Subsurface Utility Engineering) services. We also helped write the copy, including the "We find utilities so you don't find them the hard way" tagline.

Virtual Crayon Designed and Developed the official website of the TSPE Dallas Chapter. We helped them identify their primary and secondary goals and the website focuses on those desired outcomes. We also create monthly meeting flyers and other collateral for the chapter.

Virtual Crayon designed an online resume for an executive looking for a new opportunity. He used it throughout his job search. We'd love to share the link, but we are happy to report he hasn't needed the website for years.

What Sets Us Apart

Our Process

Historically, web developers submit bids and proposals for websites without knowing client needs, objectives, desired outcomes, or what the actual site users expect. Doctors do not prescribe without diagnosing, and neither do we.

Conversations Vs. Presentations

Clients usually want to know three things: can we do the job, will they be able to afford us, and are we a good fit, as we might be working together for a while. We discuss these, the process, and minimum engagement fees in person whenever possible.

Strategy Sessions

Once engaged, we work with the client to establish their goals and needs with a Strategy Session. THEN we can deliver a recommended Strategy and quote. Clients own the plan and can apply it themselves, outsource it to others, or hire us for the work.

Aligned Design

Design begins after the client's challenges have been diagnosed and a strategy has been agreed upon. This insures the project and participants are coninutally aligned as the strategy is frequently reviewed and serves as our roadmap.

Quality Control, SEO & Launch

During the Strategy Session, we defined what Success Looks Like. We've stuck to the Strategy, and now have a finished product. It's almost time to celebrate. But first, we add on-page SEO and run through our quality assurance checklist.

What Others are Saying


We are honored to have so many repeat clients and referrals. Here are a few:
