Our Brand Journey
Ichor founder, Jennifer Qian, has an eye for technology. Her master’s degree in economics led her to become a self-taught web developer. Believing that invested people can make a difference, Jennifer values community, actively volunteers, and encourages her team to get involved. Jennifer is a member of the Vancouver Chamber of Commerce Membership Committee and serves on the executive board for West Columbia Gorge Humane Society.
Jennifer founded Ichor Studios in 2015. Her goal was to create a different business culture by creating a nimble web development firm.
In 2016, Ichor pivoted to focus primarily on local businesses in and around the Portland, Oregon area. As a creative digital agency, Ichor’s focus was to serve the community by providing web development and branding services to small businesses and non-profits.
In January of 2017, Ichor crossed the river into Vancouver, Washington and began to expand its work beyond website development. Jennifer saw a need among her clients for qualified SEO and social media management services. In response, she invested time so she and her team could learn the skills necessary to help clients improve their conversion rates.
Ichor started with a small team of developers and designers, but Jennifer likes to think big. By 2025, Jennifer plans to expand Ichor’s services abroad, starting a series of studios who share Ichor’s values and passion for design.
