Creating distinctive digital experiences since 2011

About Us

About DDCO Digital

Founded in 2011, DDCO Digital, formerly Distinct Design Company, delivers a unique experience not found at any other local agency. We fuse technical, creative, and strategic elements to create a unique brand presence that delivers powerful results for your business. 

We base our recommendations on real-world data and over two decades of direct experience in content design, website development, and digital marketing strategy. We use mobile-first design principles so each piece of digital marketing content (website pages, images, etc.) is viewable as intended on different size mobile devices.

DDCO Digital focuses much of its content design on WordPress, the most popular platform for managing website content. It enables DDCO Digital to create unique designs with a solid user experience. Yet, it is simple enough for business owners to learn to update their websites if they desire.

Meet our Founder & Creative Director

Dave Carlson, the Founder and Creative Director of DDCO Digital, has been in the web design business since 1998. In the beginning, Dave worked for a national footwear retailer and was asked to put together a team to design and create the first e-commerce site for the retailer. It was a significant step for the company, and the site became one of the first e-commerce sites in the footwear industry. 

At this point, Dave knew he had found his calling. Along with his day job, Dave began to do side work for companies creating logos and websites. And, over the years, as the web continued to evolve, so did Dave. He continued to refine his creative and technical skills, staying up-to-date with the latest technology had to offer.

And the passion he started with has only grown. In 2011, Dave founded Distinct Design Company. He didn’t want to open just another web design company when he began. He wanted a web design agency to become a true business partner with clients.

Fast-forward a decade, and our team has successfully weathered the changing times, gaining valuable experience along the way, including navigating the waters of a pandemic that has devastated small businesses across America.

Dave believes it is vital to stay ahead of the curve, learn the newest techniques, and technologies, and keep up with the latest trends. One of the ways he stays up-to-date is his membership with the International Webmasters’ Association.

What The Future Holds

DDCO Digital continues to drive innovation, including looking for new ways to make our clients successful. We build relationships with other agencies to provide a one-of-a-kind experience. No running around to get a specialist! We have team members who are skilled at all aspects of digital marketing, which save you time and money.

In 2020, Distinct Design Company welcomed Kelly Sims, the founder of Sims Marketing Solutions, as an agency partner to assist with digital marketing solutions, effectively making Distinct Design Company a full-service digital marketing agency which is now DDCO Digital.

Kelly brings over two decades of experience in customer experience, market research, digital marketing, business development, and project management for small, medium, and large size corporations (both public and private).

Kelly holds a Bachelor of Science in Geography and Geographic Information Systems from the University of North Texas and a Master of Business Administration (MBA) from Centenary University. She also belongs to many digital marketing associations and is a Professional Certified Marketer (PCM) from the American Marketing Association (AMA).

Sims Marketing Solutions provides SEO, Content Development, Branding, UX Design, Social Media, and many other specialized techniques to reach the right people, with the right message, at the right time. Also, through our partnership, we can create a marketing strategy based on where your business is and where you want to go in the next few years. Think of it as a road map to success.

Client Testimonials

It is a pleasure for me to highly recommend Distinct Design. They are professional, creative, innovative, and comprehensive. Their entire team defines proactiveness and excellence.

Jeff Malone | President/CEO at RxPreferred

I recently hired Dave and his team to recreate my firm’s website. Dave took a small vision I had and turned it into a very responsive and professional website that I constantly receive compliments on from my clients. Dave made the entire process stress free, always kept me updated, and exceeded every deadline along the way. The only regret I have is not hiring Dave and his team 10 years ago.
