Our Agency

Helping purpose-driven organizations and public agencies thrive


Dowitcher Designs is an award-winning integrated marketing agency providing strategic marketing, creative, and technology solutions from southern California offices to clients worldwide.

Our Story

Dowitcher Designs, Inc. was established by Amber Wallace and Jill Kingdon in Santa Barbara, California in 2006. Our clients include public agencies, large national and international non-profits, and socially responsible businesses.

Our team has a combined 95+ years in the marketing, web and communications industries, with both solid educational foundations and practical, real-world experience. Our experience spans branding strategy, teaching, web and graphic design, programming, marketing, search engine optimization, social media, usability and more. We find solutions best suited for each client, and can use the latest technology to provide the best possible foundation for success.

Dowitcher Designs is accredited by the Better Business Bureau with a score of “A+”.

Our Philosophy

Dowitcher’s culture celebrates diversity, equity, and inclusion and the agency is proud to be a certified LGBT business enterprise (LGBTBE), a woman-owned business enterprise (WBE), and a woman-owned small business (WoSB).

Dowitcher is a proud advocate for the environment. The name of the company is inspired by the owners’ love of nature—particularly California’s beaches and shorebirds.

We have built strong relationships throughout the community, and our team provides services to and volunteers with a number of local non-profits. We provide a non-profit discount, and enjoy participating in the growth and witnessing the success of organizations that help our communities.

We value open communication, both with our clients and our team. We can work with clients through any step of our process, including Strategy, Design, Development, Marketing, and Analysis. If we cannot help you, we are happy to refer you to someone who can. We value building long-lasting, mutually beneficial relationships with our clients. Learn more about our process.
