About Us

We are creatives, strategists, and data geeks, united by a passion for helping good companies realize their potential.

Understand people

We believe the key to almost everything is understanding people. Our greatest strength and joy as a team is our nearly empathic ability to ‘get’ our clients and their customers. We ask questions, listen, research your industry peers, & study data patterns until we see the world through your eyes.

Develop a strategy

Great design begins with strategy. We apply our understanding to articulate a cohesive narrative that will guide our work together. Establishing a clear vision of where we’re starting from and where we want to go, allows the look and feel of your brand to emerge organically.

Create together

The foundation of our creative process is collaboration with our clients. No one knows your business better than you do, so your ideas are often the best sources of inspiration for our work. Through a partnership of vision, we’ll create work that truly feels as though it was your own.

Measure results

We collect and track data analytics to measure how what we’ve made is working. By measuring results we can continue to refine and adapt, so not only will you experience success today, but you’ll be poised to keep it going.

Who We Are

Zoe Mendell Portland Web Designer
+ Zoe Mendell

I’m the Zoë of ZoePDX. I’m a lover of the perfect words, a true believer in kindness, and an advocate of smart simplicity. My design career started over a decade ago as the in-house creative at a little winery in the Willamette Valley. Very quickly I learned that the intersection of strategic thinking, design and technology is the key to creating an effective brand presence. When not at my desk I’m either out running, in the kitchen with friends, or en route to someplace I’ve never been.

CREATIVE DIRECTOR

Matt Reed Portland SEO Strategist
+ Matt Reed

There’s a lot of talk these days about unicorns, well Matt is one of them. He’s an experienced entrepreneur, an operational strategist, and our SEO guru. Using data driven insights, Matt identifies creative methods to help clients grow, especially when it comes to integrating e-commerce with brick & mortar business. Matt adds rocket fuel to our design work, ensuring we truly help our clients thrive. When he’s not masterminding new ways to make more with less, you’ll find him in his apiary with a camera and his son Henrik.

When she isn’t helping us organize our thoughts, she’s usually at the dance studio or juggling her two boys Logan and Leo.
