The View

17th Avenue is web design for creatives. For small-time bloggers. For big-time bloggers. For photographers. For business owners. For one-woman shows. For late-night-working-while-half-asleep side hustlers. We get you, because we’ve been there. We understand what it takes to run a blog and business. So get back to writing, blogging, photographing, selling, and being you. We’ll take care of the rest so you can keep on doing what you love.

The Plan

We want you to fall in love with your blog design. We want you to smile every time you see it. We want your heart to skip a beat or two. Whether you choose a fabulous premade template and customize it with your vision or allow us to craft your design from scratch, we want to make you excited about your blog and proud of who you are. Your design is the first impression, so let’s make it a memorable one.

Our Story

Based out of Portland, Oregon, we breathe coastal air and dig the hipster vibe. Big cities inspire us with their bold colors, modern aesthetic, and upbeat energy – and you’ll find our design style epitomizes these characteristics. 17th Avenue was born in early 2012 and we’ve had a blast watching it grow. We absolutely love working with clients around the world, offering custom design and Blogger & WordPress themes to bring their design dreams to life.

Meet Kate

Ever since I was a kid I’ve been drawn to art and design. At 4, I would sit at my Grandma’s kitchen table with my tongue out painting on canvas (yes, there are pictures) or molding playdoh into intricate shapes. My passion for all things artistic has carried me into the best career ever: designing and developing pretty websites for creative entrepreneurs. When I’m not busy designing, you’ll find me walking my French Bulldog, Olive, or exploring Portland.

+ The Team

We have two amazing assistants, Allie and Caroline. They’re wonderful ladies and will assist in answering many of your support questions!
