About Us

Gecko Designs is a graphic design and marketing firm located in Missoula, Montana and established in 1996.

We work closely with marketing teams on projects in a variety of media. We produce mind-blowing websites, creative logos, billboards and magazine ads, email and direct-mail campaigns, online feedback and registration systems, invitations, posters, banners, stickers, brochures, sales sheets, case studies, white papers, postcards, folders, business cards and trade show displays to name a few. We create custom graphs to illustrate complex data and help our clients develop attractive PowerPoint presentations that allow them market their products and services.

We design and maintain websites and the graphics, logos, and icons that appear online and in software. We’re involved with all aspects of branding and have helped develop new identities as well as modernize current clients.

That’s not all! We also spend time teaching marketing professionals how to design and manage websites of their own. Have a look at our Adobe Dreamweaver training courses.

Meet our team

Our experienced team of designers, developers, and project managers at Gecko Designs are here to work for you! Check out our staff page to meet the team behind Gecko Designs.

We’re there when you need us, and we work extremely hard to please each and every one of our clients.

We set ourselves apart from our competitors by responding to client projects extremely quickly and are accustomed to last-minute turn-arounds when our clients need us in a pinch. We familiarize ourselves with our clients’ styles and image and operate like an in-house design department without the expense of benefits or full time employment.

But I’m not even close to Missoula!

And that’s okay! We always enjoy the opportunity to meet face-to-face with our clients but in reality, we only meet with about 20% of them. Most of our clients are in other states and we speak to them by phone, sometimes even every day!

We utilize screen sharing software which allows us to show clients our computer screens or allow clients to show theirs to us during conference calls. The result is almost the same as meeting in-person and if you’ve never experienced online collaboration like this, it’s pretty darn cool!

Heard any Geico-Gecko jokes?

Yes, we’ve heard them all, but our Gecko came first!

Geico didn’t introduce their scrawny insurance-peddling gecko until the year 2000, 4 years after Gecko Designs was founded.

Why we do what we do:
It’s about facilitating success

We actually take pride in seeing our client projects become successful. If we were to launch a beautiful website that never performed for our client, we’d consider that a failure. Part of what makes us happy is seeing our work work well for you! That’s the whole point! See why we care if your business succeeds or fails.

A short story about the big picture

Not long ago, a client came to us with a neat idea. They wanted us to create an interactive game that we could place on their homepage. After looking at their website’s Google Analytics reports, we saw that their site was only getting a few dozen visitors each day. Should we build the game they asked for or should we focus on getting more visitors to their site first? We recommended that instead of creating a game for their homepage that we put their budget to work generating more website traffic and that’s just what we did! What’s the point of having a cool webpage if nobody sees it?

Gabe started Gecko Designs in 1996.  As owner, he oversees every project we undertake and works hard to make sure our clients have a fantastic experience.  Gabe makes himself available 7 days a week and insists that good communication is an essential part of the successful projects Gecko Designs prides itself in.

Working with the team at Gecko Designs has been fantastic! I worked closely with Ali to create a new meetings website and she was so patient with all the changes to copy and took the time to walk me through the back-end of Word Press. I am confidently making changes on own but know that any request will be done quickly. The team was even very responsive over a weekend to meet a deadline. Highly, highly recommend!

Gecko's team does great work. We had a fairly complex request with a variety of stakeholder interests at play. Their team listened carefully and responded thoughtfully to our needs throughout the process! We were very pleased with the process and thrilled with the final product they provided.

The website that was built for us does not work on all browsers. Specifically, the product configurator, the most important part of the website, produces an error on older browsers. Very disappointed and frustrated.

Gecko brings an immense amount of talent and expertise to any project, adding value and saving us time at every step of the process. We've been blown away by their balance of creative capability (across strategy, ideation, design and execution) with impeccable execution, on time and on budget every time. Can't recommend them highly enough.

Gecko Designs had us at the lead phrase on their home page: "If you're tired of flakey freelancers and want to work with a team of professional, reliable experts, you've come to the right place!" We were at that point developing our site that we needed to step up to a professional team with a demonstrated portfolio of blue-chip sites, and the expertise to help bring our crazy ideas to fruition. We're looking forward to The Missoula Underground being a vital part of the Northwestern Montana scene, and the first step was picking up the phone and having a conversation with Gabe. Don't hesitate to hire their team, they are ACES at web design and development. Thanks, Gecko!
