Handcrafted Websites for Humans.

Third Hand helps regular folk like yourself create an online presence that shows off your products, your skills, or just your bad-a&$ blog posts. We think your website deserves personal attention from experienced human professionals, and it shouldn't drain your rainy day fund.


We work to provide a range of affordable custom web services for all project sizes and depths.

  • full-service web design & development
  • website maintenance & updates
  • content planning and creation
  • budget-friendly custom themes
  • no-hassle hosting packages
  • web programming services

Don't scare potential customers off with outdated, poor-quality content, a website that doesn't "work", or worse, no website at all! Fix the mistakes that keep people from finding you online. Be sure you're reaching the people who are looking for you - and people who didn't realize how much they needed you. Learn to create, update or maintain the site of your dreams - all by yourself, or with a minimal amount of hand-holding

Educate Yourself

If you're a brave DIYer (guys and gals after our own hearts!), we also offer learning opportunities so you can create, update or maintain the site of your dreams all by yourself, or with a minimal amount of hand-holding.

Whether it's help customizing one of those pesky free templates we mentioned earlier, or uploading new product photos to your woo-commmerce site, learning how to Do It Yourself could potentially save thousands in fees.

We offer private lessons or group workshops, and occasionally write free, easy-to-follow guides, tutorials, and articles.

Third Hand Collaborative, LLC is a tiny company founded in 2017 by me, Noel Cothren. I work with clients and agencies all over the USA from my home office in Albuquerque, New Mexico. For many projects I work on my own, but I've curated a small community of collaborators that back me up when I need it.
