Creative team moves to Washougal
A marketing and advertising agency has relocated from southwest Portland to downtown Washougal.
“As a new resident of Washougal, I wanted to live and work in the same community,” said Heather Jordan, principal and creative director of D. Studio 21, Inc.
The visual communications agency creates brand promotions for fortune 500 companies and local start-ups.
“I help companies and organizations authentically communicate their brand message to build loyal communities — otherwise known as a consumer base,” Jordan said. “Common values and needs bring people together. I facilitate this natural attraction through my strategic use of visual design.”
Clients include food industries and education, health, fitness, non-profit and advocacy organizations.
Design services include brand consultation and promotional campaign strategy, print design of stationery and communication materials, brochures and direct mail, packaging and promotional posters and banners.
Digital marketing services include building websites and developing social media and HTML email campaigns.
Jordan and her creative team were recently involved in all phases of design and development for the downtown Washougal brand identity and website www.downtownwashougal.com. It was a collaborative effort with Lone Wolf Development and other companies.
The D. Studio 21 team includes Lead Design Strategist William Matheny, Design Strategist Jung Ie Han and Interactive Design Engineer Jennifer White. The agency is affiliated with other designers, companies and creative resources.
It is located at 1887 Main, Ste. 201.
“We love this space and the natural light,” Jordan said.
The studio includes a working area with a standing desk, “to keep the creative juices flowing,” according to Jordan.
She has a bachelor’s degree in fine arts from Ohio Wesleyan University. While in college, Jordan participated in the New York Arts Program. She worked in Manhattan as a design intern for Bergdorf Goodman.
She is a former collegiate volleyball player. After graduating from Ohio Wesleyan, Jordan coached high school volleyball for eight years. She coached girls junior varsity and assisted the varsity team at Silverton High School, in her hometown of Silverton, Ore.
