Meet FlameHeart

I'm Joseph Weaver, a creative powerhouse in San Francisco with over a decade of experience. I design and develop websites, graphics, and other media for a living, and work as a tutor helping others learn to do the same.

In my spare time I manage a multi-platform international gaming clan and organize a local EDM meetup community. I love electronic and rock music, digital and classical art, reading and writing great stories, and helping people.

With my FlameHeart project, I run a full-service design shop that delivers complete web solutions, as well as creating branding and identity. I take pride in delivering high quality work, my rates are *actually* affordable, and I work around the clock to give my customers everything they need to succeed online.

  • Compatibility & Compliance »

    Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Safari, IE7+

    I get it. In today's world, it's necessary to have a good web experience from virtually everywhere, whether you're running the latest Chrome build, browsing the web on your iPad while waiting to be seated at your favorite restaurant, or if you're at Grandma's house trying to help her pay bills online with her 386 dinosaur. I understand how frustrating it is to have to sacrifice form for function in some of those old browsers, but with us, your site will look and work great everywhere, from every device. Guaranteed.

  • Website Design »

    I've been building websites for a long time.

  • Branding & Identity »

    Sometimes it's just that time. The time to start over, create something fresh, and reinvent your brand.

    Identity /ih-den-ti-tee/ Whatever makes an entity definable and recognizable, in terms of possessing a set of qualities or characteristics that distinguish it from other entities.

    In short what does your company mean to your clients? Is it merely a brand name? When they think of you, do they think things like "more stylish than competitors", "inexpensive, yet quality!", "great customer service", "they offer something that nobody else does" or other positive feelings? If not, you may have a ways to go towards establishing your company's identity. While it is true that a part of identity is your brand (your actual logo itself), the entire concept is much grander than that. Either way, whether you need to create an entire new identity for your company, or whether you just need a pretty logo; a memorable, stylish icon that you can stamp on your letterhead; come to us, and we can put you on the right track!    Create your identity with us

  • Mobile & App Development »

    Everybody's in a hurry these days, and needs to be able to access anything from anywhere.

  • Graphic/Flash Design »

    Need your website to stand out? In this day and age of competitors selling, selling, selling: nobody likes to be sold anything any more! And this is a huge problem, because when people turn off their receptivity to listening to advice about your good product, it hurts your sales! But knowing when and how to implement the right kind (and the right amount) of eye candy is imperative to keeping your customer's attention longer than the all of the other websites simultaneously vying for their attention.    Yes, my company needs this

  • Expert Consulting »

I can help you make the right decisions to propel your business forward. And with 30 minutes of FREE consulting up front (regardless of whether you decide to use my services or not), there's really no reason not to just drop me a quick note!

  • Search Engine Optimization »

    Beating everyone else to the top of the pile is a tall order these days. That's why we're ready and waiting to help you increase your search engine ranking. We will help you choose the right keywords, work with you to define your site's main goal(s), re-work areas of your sitemap to ensure that it's easily and intuitively navigable (both by users and by search engine spiders), and determining which of your competitors you can most easily overcome in terms of becoming more relevant to search engine results, and teach you how to increase linkbacks from other websites. Give us a call or drop us a line today! Reach for the stars!

  • Affordable Rates »

    Not everyone who needs a website is an international corporation with a huge web budget. That's why I make quality websites at rates that are affordable even to the little guys. Because everyone started small, and everyone deserves a chance! So feel free to contact me for a quote, and we'll have an honest discussion.

Alright, I'm convinced »

A thankful heart is a happy heart

Some days I don't know what I would do without my family and friends. I'm so thankful for everyone I've been given. Today is a good day. Enjoyed playing our yearly pickup Thanksgiving football game, enjoyed my family and friends, enjoyed some awesome food, and now I'm gonna relax all night :)

Sometimes working within a template just won't cut it, so I routinely engineer custom solutions for my clientele and build them to spec from the ground up. Because here at FlameHeart, what you need is what you get!
