About Us

Clever Concepts was born in 1998, which - in case you were wondering - makes it one of the oldest web development companies in the Central Coast. Founded by Dennis Clevenger, Clever Concepts provides a wide range of web services, from web design to custom programming, database development to colocation and web site hosting.

Unlike your average web shop, Clevenger and crew hand-code each web project, a process that creates an intimacy between the programmer and the programmed, and highlights the difference between taking a craftsman's approach and simply using technology to get the job done.

Sexy as this may be, it's only one selling point for Clever Concepts, where each client takes an active role in their own project. This often involves a custom administration utility that allows our clients to update content on their own. For clients who prefer keeping their fingers out of the mix, our web team provides same-day turnaround in virtually all instances.

Which isn't to say that there aren't things Clever Concepts doesn't dabble in. Interested in hosting a web site? If you're looking for a Windows server, you're looking in the wrong place: Clever Concepts works exclusively with Unix-based platforms, a fact we take pride in.

Clever Concepts thrives on word-of-mouth, building almost its entire client base through grass roots communication. Advertising - beyond a listing in the phone book - just isn't necessary when you focus on delivering results for your clients. They like the work we do, and it shows: Clever Concepts has the experience and the client list to back it up. It's web design as cult favorite - we won't come looking for you, but when you find us, we'll take good care of you.

Dennis Clevenger started Clever Concepts because he has a genuine passion for working with interesting people and helping them build an effective, results-delivering web presence for their business.

All of which, you know, makes Clever Concepts every bit the local expert in web sites - getting the job done with a handshake and a knowing smile.
