Based in sunny Ventura, California, we are a multi-talented duo working in the realms of photo, graphic, print, web and audio with a strong focus in brand and web development. Our mission is to build a long-term relationship with our clients and to produce top-notch photography, beautiful design, and functional and smart websites, that reflects our clients style and goals.
First came love, then came Oliver and Michele Productions, then came Willhouse. Our former business O + M is where it all began for us. What started out as a side project of two people in love putting their strengths and passion together three years later turned into a growing and thriving business.
With us, you get the best of both worlds, a designer and developer, creativity and logic, two "better halfs" to style and build your project or business for success.
We understand that your online shop is not just a site, it is a home. We know your small business is not just work, it is your passion. We get it. Our work is our passion and Willhouse is our home. We welcome you in as company and will do our best to make you comfortable and well taken care of.
