Who We Are

TINJ Creative is the collaboration of Matt Staib & Spencer Verdon – we’re a small creative studio operating out of Portland, OR. We work with brands, businesses, and entrepreneurs building websites, identities, and providing quality design work.

Unlike many other freelancers or small creative studios, we do all of our design and development in-house, which allows us to have a level of control over projects that many others don’t.

In addition to this, we are backed by a strong network of talented creatives in many fields – allowing us to take on larger projects with a broader range of needs.

Here are some of the services we offer:

– Branding / Identity
– Print Design
– Website Design
– Development
– Illustration
– Photography
– Video
– Consultation

How We Work

We strive to work with creative, design-led clients whose passion rivals our own, and pride ourselves on creating simple, clear solutions to any design problem.

Working side by side with clients is incredibly important to us. It allows us to constantly give and receive feedback, which we’ve found is the fastest road to a successful project. Collaboration is the heart behind TINJ Creative, and is what pushes our work every day.

Here’s a rough outline of how we work:

– Pre-Project Planning
– Research / Strategy
– Design / Mockups / Drafts
– Revisions / Refinement
– Finishing Touches / Delivery

Why should I hire you?

We have years of experience working with clients both large and small. For us, every project is an opportunity to push ourselves to new levels in order to come up with something brilliant for our clients. To set you apart from everyone else out there and leave you with a functional brand, beautiful collateral, and a great website.

What are your rates?

Pricing often varies depending on the project – typically our rate starts at $75/hr. Projects with tangible deliverables are usually flat rates. We don’t ever want price to interfere with the possibility of working with you. If price is an issue, give us a call or send us an email and we can talk about it. Consultations are free and strongly encouraged.

Will I have a say in the design process?

Please do. Read more here.

Another company says they can build us a website for $600. Why shouldn’t we use them?

A $600 website usually means you are getting no more than an edited Wordpress template. You don’t want to be 'just another Wordpress template'. Let us help you create something unique, memorable, and customized to your exact needs.

How does the Development Process work?

Our development is done entirely in house with the exception of projects that require extensive back-end work. We pride ourselves on clean and concise code. Because of this, a lot of time is spent on pre-development planning and strategy.

Are you looking for people to join your team?

We’re always looking for new opportunities to connect with fun and talented people. If you’d like to meet up with us or even just say hi, shoot us an email or give us a call – we’d love to talk.
