Research Firm SourcingLine Publishes Analysis of Leading Web Designers and Mobile App Developers in Portland and Seattle

This new research is part of a series of reports identifying top web designers, digital agencies, and mobile application developers in major US cities.

WASHINGTON, June 19, 2014 – Today SourcingLine published new research on leading digital design and development firms in the greater Portland and Seattle region.

The Web design category highlights firms focused on Web design, Web development, and/or Ecommerce development. The Portland and Seattle leaders in Web design and development are as follows: Quick Left, FINE, Montana Banana Web Development, Fuse IQ, Copious, Illusio Design, Burnside Digital, Aha Consulting, JV Media Design, and 8ninths.

The Portland and Seattle leaders in mobile app development are as follows: Ratio, Burnside Digital, Developmentnow, Quick Left, Pugetworks, and 8ninths.

"Quick Left has an established reputation of driving business results for their clients," emphasized Joshua Margolin, Senior Analyst at SourcingLine. "This likely stems from a balanced combination of technical expertise and strategic acumen, a rarity among many IT vendors."

Analysts reached out to firms with a proven track record of successful projects for both local clients and leading global brands. Their findings are based on a number of factors including proven experience, positive client reviews, and market presence. Companion directories were also published, which provide buyers with filtering tools to identify service providers that best meet their needs.

“The Pacific Northwest is clearly a hub for talent,” stated Natalie Beach, Analyst at SourcingLine. “There is a nice range of firms here, from those with a knack for helping small to midmarket businesses grow to high-end enterprise solution partners.”

SourcingLine's effort to identify leading design and development companies is ongoing, and the firm encourages companies to apply to participate in future research updates. Upcoming publications will highlight key players in San Francisco, Texas, and Miami.
