Traverse City Web Design's Story

Michigan's Premier Web Design Company

The Traverse City Web Design story started in 2001 when Ray Weigel IV left corporate web design and television production and began creating websites for artists & performers in New York City’s bustling theater and jazz scene.

“We were lucky to start with clients like Birdland Jazz Club, Jim Caruso, Billy Stritch, Avenue Q, The American Songbook Project and other entertainers, talent agencies & production companies.  We still work with some of those original clients today. ” – Ray Weigel, Founder & Creative Director

Eventually, Ray and family made the decision to move closer to their Michigan roots and brought his web design skills to Traverse City, Michigan in 2003 to form Traverse City Web Design, LLC.
