About Gecko Designs

Making awesome happen since 1996

When our founder, Gabe, started building websites on the family computer as a side gig back in the 1990s, no one thought it would last. 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.

Today, 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 14 full-time 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.

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!
  • Gecko Designs operated from a dorm room at The University of Oregon while Gabe was in college.
  • 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.

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!
