About us

UncommonSense Web Solutions consists of Dick DeRyk and associates, and provides practical and affordable solutions for businesses, not-for-profit organizations, institutions, and charitable organizations.

The business -- originally UncommonSense Web Solutions -- started

in 1999 and concentrated primarily on web site development.

While Dick's background and original areas of expertise were writing

and print design, used extensively in his first career as journalist and

newspaper editor/owner, his business experience goes far beyond


Now, after more than four decades as an owner and operator of

small businesses as varied as quick-service and full-service restaurants, retail clothing sales, commercial property management, desktop publishing, speech and report writing, and web design, he has expanded UncommonSense to offer additional services to small and medium size businesses, and organizations.

The emphasis is always on excellence. Graphic designs are clear and attractive. Writing is literate and straight-forward. Web sites are easy to navigate and in keeping with the client's corporate identity, whether those sites are high-tech database-driven sites, or smaller sites that provides an excellent web presence at a lower cost.

Other web-related services include the design and creation of banner ads, embedding videos in web sites, and adding live Facebook and Twitter feeds to sites.

Also provided are bookkeeping services, assistance with business plans and strategic planning, board governance workshops and training, and preparation and implementation of marketing plans.

Fees are more-than-competitive. A price is provided once there is agreement on the nature and scope of the work, and that's what you pay. There will not be any surprises.
