Eminent Designs has been serving small and medium-sized businesses in the San Francisco Bay Area for over fifteen years. We have also worked with clients remotely in destinations as far as the Hawaiian islands, Sweden, and Germany so distance is no barrier to business. Our experience proves that no project is too complex or too sophisticated for our abilities (please see Our Work for more information about past projects). We specialize in web design, web development, system integration such as CRM (customer relationship management), content management and SEO (search engine optimization).

Eminent Designs was created by Chris Powell in 2000, who has over fifteen years of experience in web development and design. In addition to Powell, Eminent works with a number of highly skilled web developers, designers and project managers based in the San Francisco Bay Area.
