About Us

Our Background

Great Ape Web Design Studio is a web design and development company that focuses on building beautiful, responsive websites for small businesses in Chicago. We believe that every company deserves to have a great website, but many small businesses may think the cost to do so is out of their reach. Great Ape is here to change that. We offer custom websites at a price that won't break the bank.

Our Perspective

The internet is a place of expression. While individuals express themselves through blogs and social media, companies portray themselves through websites. A website isn't a separate entity from a company, but the public display of their identity. Some companies do a better job than others at portraying themselves the way they want. Great Ape is here to make sure you can be one of those companies.

Our Clients

We have served clients in a variety of industries, from the medical field to restaurants & bars to a wide variety of small business. Though our clients came from different backgrounds, they all had one thing in common: the need for good design work, reliable coding and flexibility at an affordable price. Some just needed branding, some just needed UX/UI Design, and some needed everyone plus a custom WordPress site. No matter the ask, we were up for the challenge.

Our Platform

We chose WordPress as the platform to build our custom websites in, not for ourselves, but for our clients. The utility and flexibility that a Content Management System like WordPress provides is invaluable to our clients. When we finish coding your custom website, we walk you through a step-by-step process that gives you the power to edit all of your content, images, and pages. You don't need any experience or have to know any coding to make updates to your new site. But if you'd rather have us maintain it, we're always happy to.

“Great Ape more than exceeded my expectations! I was having issues with my old site and was looking for a quick, but quality, fix. I contacted Great Ape and they got to work immediately. They worked hand in hand with me, creating an amazing new logo for my company right away. The website looks fantastic and works just the way I want it to. I couldn't be happier with my experience, and would highly recommend Great Ape!”
