Who We Are

We proudly bring tons of experience to your project. Combined, we have over 20 years of sales and project management, 15 years of custom programming and coding, 30 years of graphic design, plus experience in marketing and social media. Dang, we sound smart! I mean, we are smart and are very confident in the work that we provide. We promise you won't be disappointed. More than once, we have heard, "This is better than I could have imagined!"

Have we mentioned yet that we like to keep things straightforward? Well, we do. Less is more, and easy is better. We also promise never to try to sell you anything that you do not need. We'll lay out your options upfront and ensure you understand what you're getting when choosing us.



We'll walk you through the process of whatever project you need. We'll continually be in contact with you, taking all your wants, needs, and feedback and turning them into reality. We'll do all the heavy lifting. After all, you have a business to run. The project isn't complete until you are satisfied. Your goals are our goals. With Fusion Forward you're not just a number, you are our #1 priority.


We pride ourselves on the fact that our prices are far more affordable than those big city dogs. Don't get us wrong, we love dogs. But why settle for a dog when you could #StandOut with a cow? With us, you'll get the same quality work for a fraction of the price!


We're small. We're local. You're small. You're local. Seems like a match made in heaven, or should we say Iowa! We support local and love those who are like-minded. We absolutely love helping the local businesses and schools #StandOut in a crowd and have a big-time presence.

Meet The Team

Susan Larson

General Manager // Art Director

I am a self-described Cognitive Creative with a few decades (or so) of industry experience. AKA: skilled, qualified, practiced, seasoned, expert, versed, adept. Helping clients understand the “why” we-do-what-we-do while keeping up to speed at the “how” we-do-what-we-do keeps me energized and up for the next challenge.

It may have taken me 20 years and 3 college degrees, but I'm finally here and ready to take your website to the next level! It's never too late to decide what you want to be when you grow up, right?!? I'm crazy detail-oriented so be ensured your site will be sharp. Super sharp! Get me some coffee and chocolate and let's get to work on that site you have been dreaming about!

I've been passionate about technology and discovering how things work since childhood. Now I’m able to bring my work experience from the information technology, manufacturing, and consumer packaged goods industries as I oversee the programming and IT processes in our web projects. Crafting thoughtful solutions for your website conundrums is my jam. peepoHappy
