Who is This Jake Anyway?

Aside from our jaunty name, we are known for our innovative, integrated approach to digital marketing. We are a group of strategists, artists and engineers working together to deliver creative solutions that build business.

Visit Our Studio

Our studio is located at 3214 O Street, NW, just blocks from Georgetown University. Like our design aesthetic, we prefer modern interiors -– clean, bright and functional. Large whiteboards for brainstorming, a dedicated conference area for client meetings and a private backyard garden ensure that our team has enough creative space to come up with inspired ideas.

Jake’s expertise is WordPress, which is the world’s most widely used publishing platform in the world today. In fact, at last count in February 2014, it powered more than 74.6 million websites and 19% of the top 1 million visited sites in the world!

No. While WordPress originally began in 2003 as a blogging platform (ancient history in the web design world), it has since evolved into a full development platform that has limitless possibilities for functionality and design.
