A Message from our founder:
My friends thought I was crazy to create a digital marketing agency focused only on Camas and Washougal. I couldn’t disagree more! I believe in the unbounded potential of our community and believe that by working together, we will create a future of local opportunity and prosperity.
How we work: Grow creates solutions based on your actual business needs, not the whims of a designer. And instead of leaving you ‘high-and-dry’ when your website goes live, we continue to support your business. We’re in this for the long term.
Most agencies sell. We serve. We serve you, your business, and the community at large. We’re dedicated to helping our local economy grow.

Ideas that Guide Us
Perfect is the enemy of done.
It’s momentum that matters. Move swiftly and with plenty of passion. Don’t waste time obsessing over the little things that likely won’t matter in the end. Get your product to market as fast as possible and adopt a strategy of constant, incremental improvement. The best way to know what to do is by doing it.
Small is the new big.
In the new economy, small companies can have the upper hand. Use the best parts of being small to your advantage. Small means the founder is close to the customer and to the decisions that matter. Decisions can be made quickly. It means being scrappy instead of spending your way out of a problem. Being small gives you the flexibility to change the business model when the market changes. And most importantly, being small means you can tell the truth and be authentic.
We work with partners, not customers.
The traditional design agency model is to pitch the largest project possible, sell the customer solutions they may not need, crank the project out as quickly as possible, and then walk away… on to the next client. It’s a business built on “churn and burn.”
We don’t work like this.
We’re here to create a meaningful impact in the local economy. We create solutions that deliver on your actual business needs and we’re in for the long haul. Most of our new business comes from referrals, from introductions by our partners.
“Small town” doesn’t mean small time.
The Camas–Washougal area might be small, but we see BIG potential. Our community is full of thinkers, builders, creators, dreamers, small and large entrepreneurs, and professionals of every kind. The market size is here. A talented workforce lives here. This is a great place to start and run a business.
