Fullblast Creative is a Portland based design firm with Todd at the helm. He teams up with a developer {Alec} when he’s designing websites and with a writer {Dave} when a project calls for brand story, naming or taglines/headlines. He works locally with Portland & Seattle clients and remotely with clients as far as Switzerland. Clients range from the food and beverage industry [wineries, breweries, chocolate companies, restaurants] to high tech startups. Together we’ve helped launch new businesses, revitalize existing brands, package/repackage products, name companies and tell their stories. We’ve met numerous challenges along the way: increase revenue, connect/reconnect with a core audience, streamline a product line, increase demand for products and sell products online to name a few.

Fullblast Creative began with Todd and his computer in a studio at the corner of Prince and Mulberry in Manhattan.  Four years later he completed a cross country move and landed in Portland. He worked out of Old Town for five years and moved to the Olympic Mills building, a platinum rated LEED building, where he continues to create inspired design solutions.
