Vernal is about crafting beautiful web sites and campaigns that help make our world a better place. Our philosophy is that web projects should be accessible, simple, and above all, elegant.


For the time being we are a cobbler with worn out shoes. We'll work on fleshing out our own site when the time comes. In the meantime you should check out our work. It speaks for itself. If you like what we do get in touch to see how we can change the world together.

Congressional Hunger Center

A WordPress backend for another solid Freerange design. The largest technical feat was the development of a datatables-powered document manager for instantly searching through their enormous library. There is also some pretty nice mapping involved.
