About the Firm

Rick Whittington Consulting is a website design, development and marketing strategy firm located in Richmond, Virginia. From innovative design and development to strategic online marketing, we work with companies and organizations to plan and create effective, productive websites.

Because each individual client’s goals and needs are different, we listen, we research, design and build highly-functional websites to suit every situation.

Much of our work deals with economic development organizations (EDOs), and our work has been recognized by the International Economic Development Council (IEDC) and the Southern Economic Development Council (SEDC).  Our work has also been featured on the Communication Arts website, which selects websites from around the globe that effectively communicate a message through art and design.

We strive for quality in all work that we do, and that translates to tangible, measurable business results for every client.
