As a small agency focused on craftsmanship, we have to be experts in more than one area. With us you get a designer, developer plus a small team.
Meet our Team
Abby is an exquisite listener, asks the right questions and can quickly grasp a client’s goals and make recommendations for how to execute and reach or exceed those goals. Abby is a conscientious team leader, a trustworthy client advocate, and a creative visual storyteller (in any medium). Abby is a photoshop master, second to none. She has a strong design eye and knows when something looks good. If you find something you like, her ability to recreate an exact match as a layered photoshop file quickly and with precision, is impressive and useful.
Her world-class technical skills and understanding across many platforms (web, print, video, animated graphics, code, writing) make her a strong leader and team member, whether she’s doing the actual work or evaluating and communicating what is needed. From translating programmer needs for the client to translating client needs for the programmer, Abby knows enough on both sides to be a good translator and problem solver.
Travis is a well-rounded lead developer, a domain and hosting guru and a WordPress authority. Having done photoshop work for Bloomingdale’s, Bon Marché and R.E.I, Travis is an expert in photoshop retouching and image manipulation for print and web. He can translate client requests to functional code with apparent ease. Travis is a domain and hosting expert, is an actual domain registrar and has been hosting websites for over 20 years (started hosting his own website in his own closet in 1994). A social media wizard,
Travis has well over 10K twitter followers and has reaped the benefits (including an invite to google, free swag and some notable twitter followers). Travis has been writing in PHP since before WordPress even existed, and since WordPress came into the picture – he’s upped his game by becoming a WordPress expert, plugin writer, theme developer and master customizer of all things WordPress. You might hear him mention he’s in a private WordPress group that helps vote on ways to improve WordPress; it really does help being in a group with other developers and the wordpress founders; he can (and does) reach out directly to any of the big plugin developers through his group and uses that WP-hivemind to generate solutions to complex challenges.
