About Navajo Custom Web Design

Navajo Customs Web Design was founded by owner Tisha Shurley back in 1999. While attending the University of Arizona (U of A), Tisha developed her web designing skills by making websites for several U of A departments. Not utilizing any programs, she has developed the art of designing a website by writing HTML/CSS code. Her main inspiration for designing websites was inspired by watching her grandmother weave Navajo rugs. Taking the idea and modernizing this process, she designs or weaves websites.
