    One of the things that really sets CreativePickle apart is that they do such a great job of supporting our ongoing design needs. They always cheerfully help out on our ‘small requests’ like keeping the web page current, designing additional ads to suit different publications, making changes to our collateral literature to reflect staff changes, etc. As a result, our look is consistent and professional. We get a lot of compliments on our printed materials as well as our website.

    Working with CreativePickle made me wish they could deliver ALL of our business needs. Their process was immaculate, professional and on-target. They carefully listened and understood our needs in order to deliver a beautiful product on time.

  • Laura Kelso
    DishLit.com creator & writer


    “The first thing I was struck by is the fact that CreativePickle listens. Really listens. They not only want to understand your business, but they care about your dreams and goals as much (and sometimes more) than you do. They bring fresh, creative and razor sharp ideas to the table, all while keeping your perspective in mind. In my experience, their execution consistently exceeded expectations. They are excellent communicators, and all-around fun, lovely people. I cannot recommend CreativePickle highly enough!”

  • Rosemary Wynn

    I highly recommend CreativePickle to anyone looking to create or revamp their business’ website.  Our new site is so creative and fun!  They also did a great job of explaining how to work with the site on our own so that we can update it without having to go through them.  We were very pleased with the outcome of Oat Willies’ new website!

  • Babak Zafarnia

    When we launched our business, we needed a strong site as our storefront and to distinguish us from other PR firms. CreativePickle delivered a blend of traditional and modern communications themes into a site that continues to get rave reviews. We loved our site so much that we’ve referred several of our own clients to them, with consistent success and professionalism at every step of the way.

    CreativePickle has been fantastic! I have worked with many creative firms and they are one of the best I have ever worked with. They not only gave me lots of solid ideas, they kept me on track and helped steer me through the process in a logical, thoughtful, and fun way. I could just keep going….

  • Lindsey Long

    Jen Smith Social

    The team at CreativePickle will knock your socks off!  In my entire career, I have never worked with a web development firm that meets ALL three of my most important criteria from a web company – Creative, Technical and Follows Through.  You get all three with CreativePickle.  They are downright amazing and they definitely Do It Right.

  • Michael Henry

    Henry Patent Law

    CreativePickle has the perfect combination of big-brain creativity, practical wisdom and skilled technical execution. Dorie and her team consistently deliver high quality work product and great advice, on time and on budget. And bonus: they’re fun to work with too.

  • Mary Kay Hyde
    Director of Marketing


    The CreativePickle team was thoughtful, tenacious, engaged, creative and expert.  Their responsiveness and above-and-beyond service levels continued throughout the project, which was complex and involved for a number of reasons. As a result, we now have a site that makes us proud and delivers a great user experience.  The WordPress CMS they helped us transition to is a breeze to navigate and manage, and it makes updating our site as easy as updating your Facebook status.  If you are looking for an agency to design and build a stellar web site, you found the right agency in CreativePickle!

  • Ketan Patel
    Art Director

    AW Media

    The team at CreativePickle was so helpful in re-launching AW Media’s online presence. They were a top-notch resource for the design and development of our media and were equally impressive in their project management abilities. They were able to understand our enormous vision and break it down into manageable pieces for our company to maintain and our readers to enjoy for years to come. We are thrilled with our new family of websites and know it was made possible through CreativePickle’s hard work and dedication to our idea.

  • Andrea Beithon
    Operations Manager


    For every project where we have collaborated (of which there have been several), CreativePickle has been an absolute joy to work with. Not only are they business savvy, straight-forward and professional, but their originality and their passion for the creative process are a breath of fresh air. Another fantastic quality about CreativePickle is their ability to make gorgeous designs that keep the web development perspective in mind.  Our developers leap at the chance to bring CreativePickle’s designs to the world of Drupal!

  • Randall Crowder
    Managing Partner

    TEXO Ventures

    Having worked in the startup community for some time, we have had the pleasure (and displeasure) of working with a variety of web development firms. It’s this experience that allows us to say with the utmost confidence that CreativePickle is our #1 choice and we will never use anyone else if it can be helped…Dorie helped us tell our story in a more compelling manner and easily exceeded our expectations. What we didn’t expect was the enterprise level of professionalism that CreativePickle brings to the table.

  • Mark Whaling

    Austin Concrete Development

    We recently hired Dorie and her extremely talented creative team to do a complete re-branding of our company,  including a new logo design, web site and magazine ads.  The bottom line is that Dorie simply gets it.  She was quick to understand our vision for the brand, and we were smart enough to stay out of her way and let her and her team take it from there. Referrals are the highest compliment that any customer can give, and I’ve recommended CreativePickle to a couple of associates already, with complete confidence that they will have the same experience.

  • Kristin Marcum
    Vice President, Account Management

    Elizabeth Christian PR

    Elizabeth Christian & Associates Public Relations worked with CreativePickle on a complete rebrand for our firm. Their team developed a new logo, website, mobile site, collateral materials and style guide for us. We were pleased with the creative development process and couldn’t be happier with the final products! Creative Pickle’s team is professional, responsive, talented, and of course, creative!

  • Dr. Joanne Gordon
    Naturopathic Physician

    Natural Health Works

    Changing my website designer to CreativePickle has been the best business decision I have made. My website and new logo are now clean and professional, and my clients have increased trust in my work due to my online appearance. CreativePickle’s staff has been flexible with my needs and easy to work with. I would recommend them to anyone who needs a website designer, logo, or marketing materials.

  • Caitlin New
    Director of Company Branding

    Ketner Group PR

    The CreativePickle team is full of extremely talented and artistic people. They knew exactly what we wanted and created a concept that illustrated the fun-loving creative, yet professional, culture of our company. CreativePickle did a complete overhaul of our website design and was able to easily work with our tight deadline—going above and beyond what we expected. We wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone looking for a design team that can take your vision and turn it into a reality better than imagined.

  • Chad Sarno
    Professional Chef & Food Lover


    Working with CreativePickle was a fantastic experience. From the get-go, they helped me iron out how my concept could take shape visually, with custom design. Their patience, professionalism and skill made my site launch a huge success. I have heard nothing but rave reviews of my site, its functionality, and simple, crisp design. They are on task, and meet all deadlines set from the initial meetings together, and persistent to help you do so as well, which was very helpful. Following the completion, the tutorial and step by step videos given on how to manage my own site was a life saver. I highly recommend them!
