Creekside Collaborative meets the needs of small businesses and non-profits seeking a one-stop-shop for their WordPress site needs.
I vs WE
In coming up with the wording for this site, the question of “I” vs “We” wording was a difficult one to answer. Working from the Creekside Building in Bellingham, Washington, Andrea Gabriel is the owner and primary point of contact. However, the Collaborative includes a wider network of independent creative professionals, whose skills may be drawn upon as needed: a videographer, photographer, illustrator, writer, and project manager. By sharing our ideas and often our workspace, we are able to collaborate on solutions for our clients, and also provide a single point of contact for multi-faceted projects such as web design with branding and video components.

Andrea’s work is nothing short of first-rate! The Earshot Jazz website was terribly obsolete. We were looking for a designer to help us bring it into the 21st century, not only aesthetically but also interactively. Andrea brought great ideas to the table, while listening to what we were looking for and being receptive to our requests. We are a very hands-on organization, and she took the time to make sure we were on board every step of the way. Our new website, with Andrea’s work, is exactly what we were hoping for: user-friendly, comprehensive, responsive – and, it looks good! With her skill set, professionalism, understanding of her clients, and friendliness, Earshot highly recommends Andrea Gabriel as web designer.Karen Caropepe
Creekside took the VERY basic WordPress website I’d designed and created a gorgeous, functional masterpiece. I’m proud to refer potential clients to my site because it represents exactly who I am and what my business is about. And even beyond the website itself, Andrea has taught me (in terms I can understand) the skills I need to post my blogs and interact with customers using the tools she’s put in place. My whole life has become simpler, and my clientele has expanded exponentially!Cami Ostman

I love my new website. Andrea thoroughly explored my needs, preferences and requirements and designed an authentic representation of my practice on-line. Her creative eye and technical savvy created a beautiful website. I immediately received positive feedback from my new online presence and most importantly, a steady stream of new clients. I highly recommend Andrea to anyone wanting to create a website that will get noticed.Stephanie Hardwick
