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.
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?
