OUR STORY

We met each other at a web design Meetup in Portland, Oregon, then we started hanging out as friends, and fell in love very soon after. We decided to turn our mutual love for web design into building a business together, so we became business partners and, luckily, have found that we really enjoy working together. We just celebrated getting married, and couldn't be more excited for what's ahead. Web design brought us together, and now we bring that enthusiasm and passion to your business every day. With us on your team, you can focus on running other aspects of your business while we design and/or repair your website. With nearly two decades in the industry under our belt, we don't waste a lot of time on pre-planning and busy work. We create a plan and then focus entirely on getting the job done – fast. We set the bar high and never cut corners. We believe in executing our work to the level of expertise that we would expect of anyone we were paying to do a job.

We love each other and we love what we do, so life is pretty sweet. We bring that laid back but professional philosophy to our work here at Rove. We have both worked very hard to get to this place in our lives, and we're very grateful for everything we have and work hard to keep achieving goals, not only for ourselves, but for our clients so we can all reach and exceed our own unique version of success.

We believe in clean design that is memorable and unexpected, yet intuitive and familiar.

At ROVE, we're not about reusing the same old, tired, cookie cutter templates that don't allow your business and your brand to truly stand out. We build from a blank canvas, making your business and brand unique and stand out as a trusted authority in the minds of your customers. You can find pre-designed style like that for cheap, but it will never inspire your customers to trust you over your competition. Going with a budget solution will end up feeling more like a burden rather than an asset, because it isn't helping your business grow, which ultimately holds you and your business back from success.

In life, and in business, we don't believe in playing small. We always think outside the box and try new things. When we see the road less traveled – we take it.

We specialize in all types of planning, production, and creation of your business’ web presence. You will feel like our only client when you work with us. We recognize that your website is important to you since it will function as one of the most vital roles to the success of your business, which is why we are always ready to exchange a few emails or pick up the phone and have a chat about your website. We can handle almost any task in-house but, if necessary, we have an expansive network of talented people that we can bring in to work on any project even on short notice. You will never be left high and dry with us on your team.

The internet has created a borderless world in the sense that we can team up and work on your website regardless of our actual locations. So, no matter where you rest your head at night, send us an email and let’s talk about your website. With us on your team, you can focus running other aspects of your business while we set you up with an incredible website that can help you achieve the goals you have set for your business.
