WYATT | LANE is an Augusta, GA-area boutique web design and development company that has been crafting custom websites for a small but diverse group of clients since 2001.
As a small company, we are able to focus on direct relationships with our clients, and we pride ourselves on applying a high level of attentiveness, creativity, and service to every project we undertake. Our focus is on helping clients define their online strategy and give them all the tools they need to get there in the best possible way.
Our clients range from private individuals and small businesses to non-profits, rural broadband providers, electric utilities, and mid-sized companies of all stripes. Our first web client was The South Carolina Affiliate of the Library of Congress Center for the Book, who hired us in back 2001 to revamp their website. In the wake of 2005’s hurricane Katrina, the Loyola University Small Business Development Center, in conjunction with The Louisiana Small Business Development Center (LSBDC), pegged us to work with locally-owned, independent New Orleans small enterprises – many of which had lost their brick and mortar businesses – to [re]start, grow and succeed, and that focus has carried through in much of our subsequent work.
Scott Wyatt is our Co-founder and Senior Web Producer, so he is responsible for conceptualizing and executing designs, continually elevating the design aesthetic on all programs – while maintaining alignment with client brands – and collaborating closely with client-side marketing teams to translate corporate positioning and strategy into compelling online creative.
Scott began making websites in the 1990s and got his professional start in 2000 as the web producer for Semaphore Inc., a full-service Columbia, South Carolina advertising and marketing firm focusing on not-for-profit organizations.
Scott holds a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Texas, Austin, College of Communication, and took courses at the School of Visual Arts and Parsons School of Art and Design while learning the ropes working in almost every department for Grey Advertising and its subsidiaries in New York.
Bruce Lane is our Co-founder & Thinker, serving as a project manager, editor, and copywriter, among other things. He is particularly adept at creating "big picture" plans and paying attention to even the most minute details.
After a long stint at Grey Advertising in New York City, Bruce began a new career in non-profit programming and event management, serving as both the Literary Arts Director for three South Carolina arts agencies and Director of the South Carolina Book Festival. He turned the fledgling two-year-old festival from a small event taking place during one weekend annually into one of the top book festivals in the country. He has been developing websites alongside Scott Wyatt since 2003.
Bruce earned his Bachelor's degree in Media Arts from the University of South Carolina.
FUN FACT: Wyatt and Lane are Southern food aficionados who co-authored "New York's 50 Best Places to Eat Southern: Where to Find Hoppin' John, Grits, Barbecue, and Fried Everything" (City & Company) and were early members of the Southern Foodways Alliance. They were eager to dive into e-commerce in the late '90s and co-founded a website selling down-home food staples and cookbooks to homesick Southerners, earning the attention of a number of big media outlets back in the day.
