About Us

For a fifth year in a row Clutch names Modern Signal 202o Top Washington, DC & Baltimore Web Development Company!

At Modern Signal, we don't just win projects, we win clients over. We do not have salespeople on staff or on retainer. We rely on our work product, word of mouth, and referrals to grow our client base -- and most importantly, we keep the clients we win.

Founded in 2001, Modern Signal is a Virginia-based website design and development company with custom solutions for associations, non-profits, foundations and private companies - large and small alike.  Our team provides the complete range of expertise - strategy, information architecture, project management, programming (in and ColdFusion), database development, graphic design and interface development - all working in concert to the benefit of your organization and your technology projects.

With keen attention to your organization's needs, Modern Signal offers custom website designs that streamline operations, increase sales and membership, strengthen marketing efforts, improve customer service, and tackle data management challenges to help you run your organization.

We become long-term partners for our clients; once clients see our work, they begin to see how we can help them in other areas of their business - whether it's wrangling and consolidating various technologies for managing their intranet, streamlining event registration systems, integrating their website with accounting or member management systems, or other hairy technology challenges. We enjoy diving in, unraveling the mysteries, and transforming them into clean, easy-to-use and easy-to-understand website and database systems.

We pride ourselves on our ability to understand our clients' goals, needs and culture, and identify, plan and implement custom technology solutions to meet them. When your organizations' needs can't be shoehorned into an off-the-shelf system, our team of experts can bring your complex business rules and vision together into a successful website project.

What is keeping you up at night? Contact us - we can help.


  • We wouldn’t have gotten where we are today without your support over the years.  Modern Signal has always been a great partner to us.

    - Kirk Gillis, Managing Director at Zoom Tanzania

  • Modern Signal has been a great partner for us for over the past 10 years.  As our business grew and our needs changed, Modern Signal was able to work with us to adjust our website platform in the ever-changing online world.  Their service and response level has been second to none, and we've been never been happier with our relationship with them.

    - Charm City Run

  • Modern Signal understands our business - from future needs to current limitations - so their solutions are always scalable, solid, and service-oriented.

    - National Association of Home Builders

  • Modern Signal worked with us to understand our needs and figure out what solution would work best for us. Our Lighthouse CMS is perfectly suited to our website goals. When we later needed to modify the CMS, they again took the time to understand exactly what was  needed and then built that functionality rather than delivering a cookie cutter solution.   

    - Ecosystem Investment Partners

  • I felt as if my company was their only client. They responded to my needs quickly and efficiently despite short turn around time and intense demands.

    - Teaching Strategies, Inc.

  • I love working with Modern Signal! Their CMS is very easy to use and they are incredibly responsive to questions or challenges I bring them.

    - NALP

  • This was by far the smoothest website redevelopment I have ever experienced. Modern Signal was a wonderful company to work with and we greatly value our working relationship. 

    - National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators

  • Modern Signal has a professional staff that was very responsive to our needs during all phases - scoping, developing, implementing and maintaining - of our project.  We have been pleased with their ability to deliver quality work on time and on budget. If given the opportunity, I would work with them again.

    - The National Center for Safe Routes to School

  • Modern Signal significantly enhanced our site to be more efficient and user-friendly. They provide excellent customer service with timely and cost-effective solutions.

    - Center for Medicare Education
