Eickhof Creative Shop specializes in branding, strategy, copywriting, and design. We’re based in the Portland Metro Area, working locally and remotely. The shop has been around for over a decade, and it’s a 100% woman-owned small business. We like dog people.

Meet the team.

Trust comes from knowing we have your best interests at heart – not because we said "trust us." Let's get to know each other better. We’ll start.


Julie Eickhof

Brand Mechanic

With a solid background in copywriting and editing and a sharp eye for design, Julie loves when all the little parts of a brand come together in a big way. She enjoys a good challenge, from creating positive change within established organizations, to leveling the playing field for scrappy small-business owners. Her extensive education includes etymology homework at age five, a Bachelor's in Linguistics from UC Davis, and professional copywriting and design studies at Miami Ad School. In her free time, she enjoys riding her motorcycles, MacGyvering things, and camping with Jake.



Jacob (JAke) T. Pup, esq.

Director, Human Resources

Since joining the Shop in 2014, Jake has been instrumental in creating a culture of productivity and job satisfaction. With a strong commitment to employee wellness, Jake has had a paw in developing many innovative programs, including the stress-management series You Need Pup Snuggles and the health-and-fitness initiative Done in 60 Seconds: Seriously, Take One Minute and Throw That Ball. He's a vocal advocate of #AdoptDontShop and dedicates his free time to educating other species about the amazing abilities of rescue dogs – and the benefits of napping.



Julie is a pretty good all-around nerd, who doesn’t need to specialize.

For a word nerd, you seem pretty good with the picture‑y bits.
