Anchor Tag Design’s Services
I’ve been providing a variety of web development and graphic design services from my studio in the Alberta Arts District of NE Portland, Oregon. It’s been exciting to work with an array of clients – from non-profit boards to industrial HVAC engineers, clothing & jewelry designers to bars & cafés, technology service providers, even a Buddhist monastery.

Web Design & Development
Welcome to the intersection of Art and Science! Taking an abstract concept for a site from a simple pencil sketch to seeing it live and in use online is super satisfying. Whether your goal is eventual self-service/maintenance of your site or an ongoing ATD maintenance contract, I’ll help you navigate the technology to realize your vision with custom tutorials as needed.
Close to a third of all the sites on the web are running on WordPress. (That’s about 64 million sites and counting.) This is an open-source, infinitely customizable web publishing platform (or Content Management Service (CMS)). And it’s cross-device friendly – make your site shine on any screen! I’m proud to be involved in the global WP dev community.
People absorb ideas more rapidly through pictures than words. Communicate the message behind your brand to visitors and clients visually. A custom, sharp logo expresses insight about your business. Fonts, color, and logos (AKA a style guide) will keep your messaging consistent online and off.
I can help you understand and leverage Google’s development tools (with measurable metrics) to maximize the impact of your site. Reports point to solutions for fixing slow loading times, technical errors, etc. And we can track how your visitors use your site. It’s quantifiable!

Odds & Ends and a Few Other Things…
