Meet Us

Midwest Values with Regional Relationships

First, serve.

“Let us serve you” is not a phrase we take lightly. “Hire Artillery” is not a phrase you should either. We’ve worked very hard to get to a place where we can confidently lead our clients down a journey with excellent results. We only ask our clients to work with us and trust us — that leads to a space to let both of us do what we do best. We promise to deliver our very best, every time. It’s the Midwest way.


More Than a Name

Artillery was founded in 2006. During that time, our founder was serving in the United States Marine Corps and was heavily inspired by military principles. Artillery (“A Means of Persuading”) became an idea that led to more. Now the name envelops the core of who we are and what we stand for.

Why We Succeed

You may have noticed we sweat the small stuff, pursue our passions, and value others. We believe “a rising tide floats all boats”. Your success furthers ours. Our #1 goal is your satisfaction in the investment you make with us. Our approach and testimonials may be able to explain this further.

What We Offer

With service at the heart, we craft and protect websites that persuade. We work with big and small and aren’t afraid of timelines and budgets. We have a few tiers of services that may just exceed your expectations. Read a few testimonials, check out our approach, then get in touch with us for more information.

The Midwest Way

We pride ourselves in Midwest values, honor, quality, and honesty. We believe our home (Lincoln, NE) is one of the country’s best kept secrets. We started here and plan to stay. Although we travel often, we are heavily involved in the design, art, and music community here in the Midwest. Come visit us!
