Common Media

We are a team of curious learners building custom WordPress and Drupal products from a studio in western Massachusetts.

We make websites for humans.

What We Do

Understanding

Each project begins with a deep listening session. We need to learn about what your team does and how your website works (or doesn’t) toward your goals.

Design

Our design practice is human-centered, focused on asking and answering the right questions: What does your site need to do that it’s not doing now?

Technology

We write code that is sturdy, durable and flexible enough to grow with a client’s evolving needs. Each site is an ongoing collaboration; our work doesn’t end after launch.  

Support and maintenance

Our core offering is a long-term partnership. We provide monthly maintenance and support to keep a site healthy, secure and sustainable.

People

We bring the broad spectrum of our experience to each project.

Community

We believe our best work is done in partnership with others. We have a robust community of collaborators and friends, locally and across the Northeast.

Partners include

CommunicateHealth

CommunicateHealth works on some of the most critical public health projects of our time, translating national priorities into functional, beautiful digital tools. Over the last decade Common Media has partnered with them on several projects, bringing our technical practice to their expertise in health literacy and design.

Greenspace Co-Work

Greenspace has reimagined and revitalized properties in downtown Greenfield to support a growing community of tech and creative workers. In 2019 Common Media partnered with them to build out a new collaborative workspace on Main Street, where our studio is located. We’re proud to work alongside them and to be in a cohort of other Greenspace members, working together to foster a resilient local economy.

JB Analytics

We built a partnership with the brilliant team at JB to provide our clients with an expert level of knowledge about SEO and site data. JB provides practical insights about search and analytics that informs our development work and gives clients a richer set of directives to achieve their site goals.

Kind words

“I can honestly say that it’s a delight to partner with Common Media. I have worked as a marketing and communications director for over twenty years, and know a good deal of what I need and want in a web development and design team. CM brings it all, plus new and creative ideas that improve our site.

They see both the big picture and the details, are highly professional and are just the nicest people, as well.”
