Today, Philsquare has a reputation for great customer service, elegant designs, and robust development.
Founder & Lead Developer
I have always had a passion for writing computer code. Around the age of 12 (1987-ish) I started working with my first computer. I was hooked. Years later I attended the University of Kansas and graduated with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. Immediately after college, I was writing software for a small engineering company. It would be around this time when I started honing my web development and design skills in my spare time. 3 years later I started Philsquare and have since then have gone from building basic WordPress websites to designing complicated web applications and mobile designs.
Director of Marketing
In 8th grade, I decided I wanted to be a Journalist. I eventually attended KU and completed my degree at the William Allen White School of Journalism but made my way to Public Relations. My experience and new media led me to a career in marketing with a focus on managing social media accounts and content. I manage social media accounts and social media content for Philsquare and our clients.
From an early age, my dad’s love for computers sparked my interest in the web. My first success was a PHP website I built in 2003 to showcase flash animations I had made with my friends. It wasn’t until about 2009 that I decided to improve my design skills by earning a degree in graphic design from JCCC. Today, I design everything from logos and digital marketing to responsive websites and fully fledged web applications.
Phil's inherently good design sense works hand in hand with functionality really, really well. ... We really wanted to use a local developer but would have chosen one out of the area if it was best for the store. After talking with several developers, we felt Philsquare was clearly the best choice.Anne Tangeman, Former Web Marketing Manager at Mass Street Music
Working with Philsquare was great. They did an awesome job of understanding our business needs and building a website to meet those goals. We needed a site that was easy to navigate on the front end so that our customers could be inspired and informed to shop with us. We also needed a streamlined backend to update content on a daily, weekly and monthly basis. The Philsquare team met with several different groups of people at The Merc to understand how they needed to manage their web content and built intuitive workflows to meet those demands.Stacie Doyle, Former Marketing Manager at The Merc
