ANGIE HERRERA

Portland, OR

I'm convinced my life calling was web design. The fact that my fútbol skills and bad knees aren't quite up to pro level probably plays some role too.

I started in this industry in Europe – Spain, to be exact. After college, that is. Then it was back home to my beloved Portland (RCTID!) where I had an almost-two-year stint at a local company's graphic design department. I was the number two gal there... out of two. Until I realized it was time to move on.

The economy sucked then too. So I took a chance and started my Portland-based web design company, 420 Creative. I gave myself 6 months to get it rockin'. It's now been over 10 years.
