Portland is known for many things—great coffee, great music, and just the right amount of quirk. While these might be just a few of the things that might readily come to mind when thinking of our fair city, did you know that we’re also a tech and design hub, lovingly dubbed the “silicon forest”? Within our forested borders, we host some of the most famous technology brands in the world.
With the growing emphasis on good design and the increasing complexity of an ever-evolving (and demanding) web, it’s important to partner with a team that understands the importance of tech and design and how those can benefit your customers and your brand.
As individuals, we’re a group of designers who want to create beautiful, meaningful things. Our team has collectively worked on hundreds of design projects over the course of our careers, partnering with some of the biggest (and smallest) companies doing business today. We are interested in plumbing the depths of design—working with like minded design professionals and organizations to deeply explore this amazing, wonderful field we’re part of.
As a company, we pride ourselves on building collaborative partnerships with those we work with because, honestly, if we can do good work for you then we can do that same type of work for other people you know and slowly we can spread meaningful design everywhere. Too utopian? Perhaps, but we aspire to inspire and we want you along for the ride.
Meaningful web design and interactive design is becoming more complex every day. As technology becomes more diverse our sites and products need to do more and do it well. Failure to do so means people can’t find you or they dread using your site or app. A visually attractive, competent website that considers its audience is essential.
Your brand is your promise of assured quality to those you engage in business with. A cohesive identity is a one of the best tools a brand can utilize to set them apart from their competition. Professional design is an investment that informs your clients you’re serious. It will take you further than a piece of clipart on a business card ever could.
Digital marketing is about getting found. You’ve got the website, you’ve got the identity, but you need people to know who you are. Dedicated marketing efforts like social media posting & campaigns, search engine optimization (SEO), and search engine marketing (SEM) are cornerstones that promote findability and increase business.
