Our Core Values
Drive for Excellence
This stems from the US Air Force’s core value of “Excellence in All We Do”. Anything less is unacceptable.
Truth and Honesty
We are a no BS kind of group. We’ll tell it to you straight. There’s no sugar coating or dancing around here.
Passion for Success
In order for us to become successful, we need to help you become successful. It’s a win-win!
Commitment to Service
We will do our best to go above and beyond for you. We want this process as stress free as possible.
We are a U.S. Military Veteran owned website design operation. We hold our team members to the highest standards and will let nothing slide. We carry with us the experience and training we received during our time serving our country so you can count us to keep our word and do what we say we will. If you find that something wrong, we will make it right.
Founder, Business Manager, Lead Web Designer
Don serves as the Lead Web Designer and handles most of the sales questions. If he’s not talking to customers or working on new websites, he’s bouncing new ideas off of Billy (literally…) while trying to improve our customer experience.
Lead SEO Strategist, Developer
Billy is the brains behind the SEO side of the business. When he’s not buried in keywords and search engine analysis, he’s coding custom plugins and yelling at Don for using inline CSS (Seriously Billy, pffft).
About Don Smith Designs LLC – How We Got Started
Going straight into the Air Force out of high school, Don Smith started his adult life working on F-16s around the world. With a natural technical aptitude, he excelled at his duties in avionics systems troubleshooting and repair.
After separating from the Air Force in 2006, he went to work for a civilian aircraft manufacturing company as a Lead Avionics Technician, quickly moving up to a Project Manager position. Unfortunately, the tumultuous aviation industry claimed another victim and Don was laid off after several years of dedicated work. This brought Don and his family to sunny New Mexico, where he began his work in the semiconductor industry.
All the while, he had an entrepreneurial spirit that was burning inside him. He worked many network marketing businesses – and actually still does – all the while learning more information about sales, marketing, and customer service. But, he still wanted something of his own. He wanted the ability to manage his own time after spending so many years being too busy to spend quality time with his family.
Years of learning about programming, stockpiling information, and building websites for friends and local businesses gave him an idea: “Why not turn this into a business?” With a degree in Marketing and a second one in Web Development, it just made sense. Thus, Don Smith Designs LLC was born. Don’s dedication to perfection and customer service gives him an edge when talking to clients. They appreciate his honesty and ability to use his marketing experience to guide them in setting up their websites and beyond.
