Our Story

Founded nearly two decades ago by Joshua Eberly, a proud alumnus of Western Colorado University, Run Sleep Design began its journey at the dawn of the web development era. Joshua, graduating in 2003 with a vision and a passion for the emerging digital landscape, quickly mastered the foundational languages of the web, such as CSS and HTML. Recognizing the need for dynamic, database-driven websites, he expanded his expertise to include PHP and MYSQL, setting the stage for a career at the forefront of web development.

Our Evolution

Over the years, Joshua’s initial focus on custom PHP, HTML, CSS, and MYSQL has evolved. In the early years between 2008 and 2009, he embraced WordPress, appreciating its user-friendly CMS capabilities that significantly benefit our clients—especially those keen to manage their content actively. Run Sleep Design specializes in creating flexible, dynamic websites that empower our clients, whether they prefer to handle updates themselves or leave maintenance to our expert team.
