Our Glinda the Good Witch
Although Erin doesn’t flit about the office in a pink ballgown and tiara, she is well-known for her bubbly yet steady presence, the perfect guide for any website endeavor. Founder of Ruby Slipper Designs, Erin is known for creative collaboration, thoughtful planning, and a dedication to growing businesses.
She loves the energy that comes from watching an idea come to fruition… polished designs, clean code, the masterful execution of strategy. It’s exhilarating to launch a site and watch the business grow because of our plan.
Erin has owned Ruby Slipper website design and web development company in Oregon since 2002. Prior to that, she spent several years at Girvin Strategic Branding and Design in Seattle, at VR-1 video game company in Boulder Colorado, and at Quark desktop publishing in Denver.
Originally from Colorado, Erin has been living in the Pacific Northwest since 2000.
Our Tin (Wo)Man
Our graphic designer, Ashley is the embodiment of heart. And really, that’s where her parallel to the Tin Man begins and ends, because obviously, she’s not a woman made of metal. Although she is cleverly wearing a lovely shade of steel gray…
Ashley’s joy is effusive and talents immense, she is a graphic designer and letterpress printer with a passion for helping businesses develop and build their brand.
Bringing concepts to life creatively and visually is what makes her tick, and if you let her letterpress your design onto some beautiful paper, well, she’ll basically be in heaven.
If she isn’t going to town on a new logo or design layout, you’ll probably find her drinking a local beer (or coffee) while simultaneously attempting to keep her two sons from wrestling each other, or planning her family’s next getaway somewhere in the beautiful Pacific Northwest.
Our Man Behind the Curtain
Our talented programmer Dana runs Happy Dog Web Hosting. Happy Dog started out as a small web design firm in 2002 and built a ton of great sites, only to see them suffer from poorly performing hosting. That’s when Dana decided to branch into the hosting business so his websites would perform at the highest level possible.
Dana also offers custom programming, specializing in WordPress theme customization and custom plugins. His favorite challenge is writing code that allows WordPress to do something it was never intended to do. Dana’s programming magic has infused nearly all Ruby Slipper sites, to everyone’s great benefit.
Away from the office, Dana is a passionate trail runner and sampler of fine IPAs from the many excellent breweries in Missoula, Montana.
