Nick Cates had designed websites for the sports performance industry when he took a chance making website design template software. His website templates allowed people without coding knowledge to create beautiful websites, later flourishing into a +$2M software company. For over a decade, Nick Cates Design was the market leader for high-quality website templates.
The Nick Cates Design customer base spanned internationally, serving a wide range of industries. Requests poured in from business owners around the world wanting custom websites made personally by Nick. Each client website provided a fresh and exciting challenge, but the work was exhaustive. Custom websites were built for a small group of clients while Nick continued to design and sell template software.
With 10 years of established UI/UX experience Nick started designing for large web app projects. These complex, multi-month long contracts ranged from e-commerce, SAAS tools, to adventure booking. This work involved investment based partnerships instead of one-time large payment projects. These partnerships were a sustainable win-win for providing ongoing web design services, and later would serve as the foundation of Falcon Design.
Nick was managing website software sales and support, custom client websites, and large scale app projects – an intense workload. Mid 2020, Falcon Design was created as the premier solution for business websites, while the long-time software company was sold, giving Nick complete focus to Falcon Design. Today, Falcon designs and manages websites for industry leaders across the nation, with strong client partnerships that continue to grow.
