About Cloud Nine

Since launching in 2014 we've built a small team of creatives and techies driven by design and fueled by coffee.  

We were crazy enough to start a small business, just like you

In 2014 we had this crazy idea to start a small tech-focused business to help other small businesses gain an edge of their larger competitors.  With over 15+ years in the IT industry, we launched Cloud Nine Communications, a small company looking to offer both IT and Design services.  We took our IT background and used it to build out a high-end web hosting infrastructure and used our design skills to begin developing websites for local businesses.  As we grew, we added print design, digital marketing, and more to our service offering, filling in the needs of our growing client base and changed our name to Cloud Nine Web Design, LLC.

There's a divide between the marketing available to large corporations and small businesses.  Although there are many options for small businesses to choose from, none of them ever really feel like they're designed to fit your business.  Just another cookie-cutter website or marketing tactic.

We're changing the game up, by giving 'small businesses' the opportunity to have the tools they need to grow and utilize the Internet without the burden of overpriced services designed to target their bigger competitors, or settling for a 'one product fits all' solution.


Hi, I'm Ed Ellingham 👋


I'm Ed Ellingham and I'm the owner of Cloud Nine Web Design, LLC. out of Morris, IL.  I've always had a passion for technology and design, and love that I'm able to marry those two every day while helping small businesses thrive and grow.  The Internet is such a powerful tool and most small business owners simply don't know where to start.  I love solving problems and coming up with creative solutions.  Every small business is unique, and their needs match that.  We tailor everything unique to your brand, workflow, and goals.

If you'd like to chat and pick my brain or see how we can help you grow your business through the power of the web, hit me up, I'd be happy to chat.
