About Us


Bearded is a web design and development agency located in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. We create responsive websites and applications that do more than incorporate future-friendly technologies – we help move the web forward.

Our clients are true partners in the design process. Whatever your organization does, we can help you do more of it.

Bearded has won many awards, including two HOW Interactive Design Awards, and has been nominated for Net Magazine's 2014 Agency of the Year award. Committed to collaboration, the Bearded team speaks at national conferences and writes for leading publications like A List Apart and .net magazine, as well as our own Bearded blog.

We wanted a company with responsive design experience to help guide our transition to meet the growing number of mobile visitors to our sites. With their expertise Bearded flattened the learning curve, provided great solutions and invaluable ongoing support.
