About Gecko Designs

Making awesome happen since 1996

Gecko Designs is a full-service marketing, creative, and web development agency headquartered in Missoula, Montana that serves clients across the country. We’re a close-knit staff of 13 employees who love nothing more than tackling complex marketing challenges and creating materials that make our clients stand out from the competition and get tangible results. We’re proud to be a woman-owned, woman-led organization.

Our origin story dates back to 1996, when our founder, Gabe, started building websites on the family computer as a side gig back. Fast forward twenty-six years, and Gabe is still building websites – but he’s not doing it alone, and (thankfully) he’s no longer working on the Intel 486 in his parents’ bedroom.

Five Fun Facts about Gecko Designs

  • The business was named because Gabe had a pet gecko in high school. He doesn’t remember the gecko’s actual name, but he does remember that it was a neat pet!
  • We’ve never met a pickleball court that we didn’t love! (And we’re all secretly jealous of Tim’s serve.)
  • Gecko Designs was selected by Google to represent the State of Montana in their 2017 annual economic impact report.
  • Our Missoula office is located in a historic downtown building that used to be a pharmacy, and still has original detailing and artwork.
  • Gecko Designs has a full-size red fire engine and a robot that makes pancakes.

Gecko was selected through a competitive process to assist Missoula Public Health in our modernization and brand redesign campaign. Their staff have been immensely helpful. They've helped guide our process toward results that are stellar. We presented our updated branding to our board and they loved it--comments were "two thumbs way up", "this is exactly what we needed", and "love it!" We will definitely look forward to working with them in the future.

Gecko Designs quickly identified and efficiently fixed a problem we were having with our website AND pointed out some other items that needed attention. Very professional and congenial. I highly recommend them.

We redesigned a very very old website with Gecko and began the process during coronavirus. Despite those challenges, the team at Gecko was very helpful and flexible. They built us a beautiful website, taking into account all our needs. The project manager Grace, was a pleasure to work with, always available to answer questions, great with communication, and very organized. They went above and beyond to make sure the end product was perfect, even if it meant putting in extra hours, or extending the project longer than anticipated. We really appreciated all they did for us and could not be happier with the results!

We worked with Gecko Designs to completely revamp our website for Northern Rockies Orthopaedics. It took us over 2 years to get everything how we wanted it and all ideas for our physicians incorporated. Grace and the team at Gecko were so accommodating and patient with us. Highly recommend using them for all web design needs!
