The ATD Story
About Anchor Tag Design
ATD is an independent / freelance design studio in NE Portland, Oregon. I provide mobile friendly web design, custom graphics, eCommerce integration, WordPress tutorials, email templates, and related web applications. Other services include layout for print and product photography. Each site is uniquely built by focusing on the needs of your business and its visitors (potential customers).
I take pride in collaborating with clients to realize their vision. Part of building a working relationship is understanding your level of comfort with web technologies. I make an effort to express complicated concepts in a relatable way – person to person – avoiding jargon-heavy language.
Behind the name:
In HTML, an anchor tag is the link element. The point of the work I do is to build connections with your visitors.
…and it has that cool NW maritime vibe.
With a background in photography and years of experience in the print & service industries in Portland, Oregon, I took the leap and founded my own studio. After a decade of running 35mm film in a local theater pub, I returned to school – earning an Associate degree in Web Design & Development at Portland Community College (Panther Pride!). I've worked as a teacher's assistant at a code lab and subcontracted for other web design studios. Every day I'm thankful for my NE Portland home and my community of friends. Sharing my experiences and teaching others is incredibly rewarding. Cheers.
