Crafting websites that'll capture your audience.

Ahoy! I’m David Zupec, web designer and WordPress developer at the helm of Sailors & Mermaids. I create things so others can succeed. Forward thinking, strategic and innovative; ​I thrive on identifying unique opportunities and approaches when building websites. I have a dedication and perseverance to consistently give it my all to help brands thrive, grow and make a global impact. I do my best work for people who are trying to execute something exceptional and who values the services I offer.

Sailors & Mermaids is based out of Michigan, but I work with clients throughout the world via Skype and email. Learn more about Sailors & Mermaids and lets discuss how I can help you!

A quick note: My new site design was finally launched this August! It's still a work in progress and will be fully responsive for mobile and tablets this Winter.
