imagistic is an Internet marketing and Web development services firm located in Westlake Village, California.



In 2008, imagistic was named a 2008 American Business Awards finalist in the categories of overall Web design and software programming and Web design for First 5 LA and Technicolor.

The company was also the winner of the American Business Award for best Intranet site of the year for Sir Speedy Extranet in 2007 and its Web site for the Boston-based School for the Museum of Fine Arts.

In both 2002 and 2004, imagistic won the Webby for its work with Teaching Tolerance. Company co-founder Michael Weiss was quoted on BNET as saying: "The Internet as a means to distribute information is truly remarkable. Unfortunately, not all that information is positive or humanitarian. We are extremely proud to be working with an organization whose mission it is to use the Internet to promote understanding, diversity and acceptance of others."[1]

The firm has also won multiple Web Awards, EMMAs, and Davey Awards.


The company was founded by Kevin Howard Goldberg, Michael Weiss, and Marcelo Ziperovich in 1997, as the Internet boom was beginning its rise.

After operating out of one of the founder's second bedroom for six months, the company obtained office space on Abbot Kinney Boulevard in Venice, California. For eight years, imagistic rose and fell with the Internet boom and bust.

During its boom, Los Angeles Business Journal[2] named imagistic #4 of the top 100 fastest-growing private companies. After the company had reached thirty employees in 2001, the industry fell to pieces. In 2005, after two rounds layoffs and Ziperovich's departure, Goldberg and Weiss relocated the company.[3]

Now located in Westlake Village, California, imagistic maintains partnerships with Web content management companies CrownPeak, Ektron, Microsoft, and PaperThin.

In fall 2008, Kevin Howard Goldberg's book, XML: Visual QuickStart Guide (2nd Edition), will be published by Peachpit Press. The first edition of the book was written by Elizabeth Castro. In January 2010, Kevin authored an article about CodeIgniter (an open source PHP MVC Framework) on the IBM developerworks site[4].

As a frequent judge for the Stevie Awards and speaker at annual seminars held at the Nonprofit Technology Network Conference, Michael Weiss is frequently quoted on the topic of Web development. In 2006, he was quoted in BusinessWeek [5] on the benefits of hiring a Web developer.
