We're kind of like a matchmaker – In the business of building "perfect match" websites.
We don't believe in cookie-cutter solutions. Each business situation is unique, so we tailor each website solution based on the specific needs of each client.
Located in historic, downtown Newburyport, MA, Sonora DesignWorks was founded in 1993 by Jim Somers and his wife, Heidi. Initially launched as a marketing and graphics firm, the small agency evolved quickly to specialize in website design and development when the Internet became a mainstream marketing channel.
The Sonora name was inspired by a somewhat unintentional side trip that the Somers family took through the Sonora Pass in California while trying to find a shortcut back to their hotel. The "adventure" that followed – unknown territory, nearly empty gas tank, setting sun, curious animals coming out of the wilds – seemed a fitting analogy to starting a new business.
