About Us


Somewhere betwixt the noble art of creation and the immortal idea of party exists a sunny enclave where a couple goats bathe in the glory of an existentially minuscule life. Physically HQ’d in Portland within the GREAT state of Oregon, Design By Goats is a two person design shop using their unique talents and backgrounds to fashion fresh ideas, sharp design, and happy clients across multiple mediums. We brand companies and create websites. We design posters, graphics, logos, shirts, and cards. We produce short films and take professional photos. We craft wood prints, stationary and envelopes. AND WE HAVE FUN DOING IT. No matter where you are, we probably want to work with you.

Goat Enthusiest, Co-Owner, Designer

Kailee is a very small and bright person (literally and figuratively, respectively). Her degree in Graphic Design saw her design with bold strokes and not take prisoners – unless it is regarding text in which she is very careful. She thrives on contrast and trying new things. She hails from Alaska, “The Great Land,” but always keeps a heater by her desk. Besides design, Kailee gets her creative fix as a dancer in SubRosa Dance Collective and has a background in both ballet and gymnastics. In fact, she teaches dance and gymnastics locally. She also loves to fish, play poker, and pan for gold. And she loves goats. -Duke

Dreams: Design chocolate packaging & sit court side at a blazer game.

Grand Emperor, Designer, & Photographer

Duke is the ‘idea man’ genius (seriously). If you want an awesomely unique creation, contact this guy. His ideas seem out of this world but somehow he forms them into glorious works of art. Duke has a Bachelor of Architecture from U of O, which means you can find him kicked back, wearing a 90’s Duck sweatshirt with a brew in hand during every football game (sometimes he even watches the games twice). He’s also a mean (by mean I mean really nice but really good) musician. He often creates his own music or co-creates in his bandShadow Strategy Task Force. Duke also has read just about everything Tolkien has ever written and could possibly beat Tolkien himself at Lord of the Rings trivia. -Kailee

Bucket list: Romance novel cover art, un-readable death metal band logo, anything for Dame Dolla

What makes us the GOAT(s)?

› We’re small. Boutique. Reliable. One on one service. So much of the process is communication and you’re our priority.

› We agonize over tailoring our costs to make them fair.

› Something about fun. 

› Always thinking beyond the expected because lurking behind every project is a problem that needs to be solved - the trick is to identify it and create the BEST possible solution.

› We’ve earned the work we have. 99% of our work has come through word of mouth, and we’ve built a client base by hard work, trust, and good design!
