Who We Are

DAVID HAMILTON

FOUNDER / DESIGNER
David Hamilton never intended to own his own business. A Humboldt native, and an artist by nature - he started taking on design projects after graduating from Humboldt State. After winning a national award for his website for the Humboldt Rose Society, David decided it was time to make it official, starting David Hamilton Design in 2007. The business has since expanded to serve over 100 clients.

KELSEY LARSON

SOCIAL MEDIA / WORDPRESS
Kelsey grew up surrounded by web designers in the heart of the Silicon Valley during the dot com boom. She was coding websites and working on Photoshop projects while still in elementary school. From her earliest roots, she’s been a planner, a dreamer, and a researcher. Kelsey keeps her finger on the pulse of internet and is always updated on the latest plug-ins, algorithms, and social media tools.

ANDY LINDE

WEB DEVELOPER
After growing up in central California, Andy moved up to Eureka for a quick stint in college. Andy has always been fascinated by web development and design, and has been experimenting with code for longer than he would care to admit. Although his time at College of the Redwoods was focused on programming and design, he's still largely self-taught, and is always looking for new ways to expand his skills.

EVAN WISHEROPP

PHOTOGRAPHER
A dedicated outdoorsman, Evan's love of photography began as an attempt to capture the exquisite and isolated landscapes of California. He has since honed his craft as one of the most popular wedding and commercial photographers in Humboldt County, and his business, Evan Wisheropp Photography, has been awarded Best of the North Coast by readers of the Times-Standard three years.

ANNA GILLESPIE

ASSISTANT DESIGNER
Anna brings project and crisis management skills developed over the course of a successful career in the municipal fire service. Her primary function with David Hamilton Design is behind the scenes, and is often referred to as "herding cats". Anna's work is usually logistical and administrative but she is currently expanding her skills to include aspects of website management and design. Anna is a critical thinker, as well as a visual artist in non-digital media.

About our process.

Direct Communication

01 Whether in person, or over the phone - we want to know about your business. We get to know our clients, so that we have a grasp of their branding, current needs, and future plans.

02 We want to know what you like. Send us photographs, screenshots, or links to design that you like. It can be in the same field, or something completely unrelated.

03 We'll send you an early draft of our design for approval. Let us know if it captures the feel of your business. At this step we want to focus of the big picture. Is it capturing the right emotions?

04 We bring you a finished draft. At this point it's time to fine tune. Text edits, photo choices. We work together to make sure your project represents you properly.

The Not-So-Fine Print

01 We exist to serve our clients. At the end of the day, all photos, graphics, and sites we produce belong to you. No need to worry about a designer clinging to the copyright.

02 Our team is based out of Northern California. We work from our homes and meet in coffee shops or over Skype. Need to sit down and chat with us about a project? Shoot us an email.

03 Getting a website from us? The details of our relationship will be spelled out in a contract at the beginning of the process. No fine print. We find that our lives are better when our clients are happy and everyone knows what to expect right from the beginning.

04 Our design is personal. Our shop is small enough that we remember all of our clients. Had us design a business card for you ten years ago? Shoot us a message. We'll remember you.
