About Mo&By

No, that’s not a stray ampersand. Moby began as a collaboration between a developing designer and a designing developer. Read below to find out more about the two founders, Tim and James.

What do you do for a living?

It’s a simple question with a complex answer. We primarily build things for the web, whether it be mobile, desktop, or “other.” We don’t really like to define what we do, because we’re problem solvers who love a challenge, and the idea is to keep our list of services fluid.

On your desktop

If you’re looking for a more traditional online solution (aka: desktop experience), we’ve got our roots there too. We’ve been building websites and web apps for quite some time, and we love to create fun, user-friendly ones.

Process makes perfect

We have a five-step process that guides us through the project from start to finish. It helps us pinpoint our clients' needs and keeps the project running smoothly. Like butta'.



In the initial phase, we work with you and your team to find out your objectives, challenges, needs, and goals. There’s a lot of talking during this phase, and probably a lot of meetings. We can bring snacks though.


We typically start with a concept review, based on what we uncovered during the discover phase. Once a concept is chosen, we move into design reviews, where we refine the vision and develop your solution.


It ain’t always pretty, but this is where the real magic happens. Your project goes from design comps to actual working sites or prototypes. In the build phase, the pictures turn into tools.


After testing your site/app/demo/whatever, we make sure things are running like a well-oiled machine, then we release it into the world. This is the most exciting phase, as all the hard work comes to fruition and your project comes to completion.


After launch, we like to sit down to relive the memories and go over next steps. Whether it’s scheduling future updates, reviewing content management, or planning next steps, we like to begin and end each project with open dialog with our clients.

The Proof is in the Pudding

We’ve worked with major corporations, small shops, start-ups and agency partners. Our experience spans a range of projects, from mobile sites to games, websites to web applications. Let us know if you're interested in seeing our full portfolio, or check out a sample on Sortfolio.
