Who We Are

A little about why we're so special!

The Design Core is a web design & development studio located in the beautiful hill country of Austin, TX. We specialize in creating engaging & effective websites while focusing on quality & customer service. We keep our clients happy & develop long term relationships by practicing open communication, partnership & collaborative expertise.

We are detail oriented, good listeners & are quick to respond to our client's needs. Planning, communication & hard work make up the foundation of everything we do.

We collaborate with other independent designers, programmers & professionals which allows us to use the perfect talent for each job. This results in the best, most cost-effective solutions for our clients without the excessive overhead costs & convoluted processes common among large agencies.

And in addition to servicing our own clientele, we also work with other design/development companies, studios & agencies, acting as an outsourced collaborative partner. Contact us to find out how we can work together to expand your company's offerings.

Our Difference

We are small & like it that way. It gives us the opportunity to know our clients better & serve you with a more personal touch. Plus, it minimizes project management time so we can spend more time actually working on your project.

Our Mission

Our mission is simple, deliver great looking & effective websites, & deliver them on time & within budget. We listen to our client's needs & exceed their expectations. We have also been known to under-promise & over-deliver!

Owner & Operator

Danny Handler

A University of North Texas School of Music graduate turned web designer/developer, Danny brings a distinct combination of creativity and logic to every client engagement. With over 15 years of experience in interactive media, Danny has built a company around the simple truth that having an engaging and effective website is critical to any company’’s success.

I needed a website built exactly the way I imagined and Danny from The Design Core managed to incorporate all of my ideas into a website that looks great and functions flawlessly. The Design Core was really on top of the game with their well-organized design & development process and by offering useful implementations such as content management solutions and mobile-friendly website versions. It was not surprising that many of the compliments that I received on my website were from other web designers...
