ABOUT US

We’re a team of seasoned creatives working to help good companies make the world better.

Real is Better

We believe in being real, it’s the heartbeat of compelling communication. The essential truths that drive your organization are your gold, we mine these to create authentic work that helps your business thrive.

Beauty with Brains

Design is most effective when it’s both beautiful and intelligent. That’s why we do our homework – using data science, asking questions, and doing comparative research – before we let loose with our creativity.

Understanding is Key

We’re driven by a genuine desire to help companies doing good things, do them better. Because we care, we’ve developed an almost empathic ability to understand people and their business. This is our secret sauce, and the key to effective work you’ll love.

Measurable Results

We do more than make pretty things, we develop creative systems that produce measurable growth for our clients. In fact that more than half of our clients have doubled their business since working with us.

Zoe Mendell Portland Web Designer

Zoë Mendell

CREATIVE DIRECTOR

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. I partner with clients to bring ideas to life, integrating purpose with aesthetic sensibility. When not at my desk I’m either out running, in the kitchen with friends, or en route to someplace I’ve never been.

Matt Reed

SEO & E-COMMERCE GURU

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.
