blank creative pdx

It all started over dinner in the fall of 2012. I was with an artist friend who was in need of a website to showcase his work.
I happened to be his tech go-to guy, in my early twenties, with a general knowledge of computers and the internet.
Because of this, he thought I might know how to build a website.

I did not.
But I gave it a try and I succeeded.

Seven years later, and we’re still committed to helping small businesses, nonprofits, and artists create online identities and teaching you how to use what you already have to keep good design cost effective.
