As our name suggests, we’re an incubator of ideas. Inventions, solutions, the big A-ha, often begin as the seed of an idea. Germination starts the journey that can change everything. We’re all over that kind of thinking. It’s what we enjoy doing most.
Originally founded in 2008 by Michael Krol, Germinate has helped companies large and small improve the way they work by creating applications that simplify complex processes. We actually began our first internet venture in 1997. Since then we’ve helped many companies work smarter including the following: Nike, Autodesk, Intel, Adobe, Pacific Foods, and Oregon Reproductive Medicine, just to name a few.
The laser-focus of advertising-design combined with the deep technical knowledge of integrating complex business systems and data visualization, enables us to create technical brilliance. After all, smart, beautiful, intelligent design is just as important as the technical brilliance behind it. It’s not enough for an application to be smart, it needs to be easy to use and apply. That’s where good design comes into play. That’s pretty much what we do on a daily basis.
We've been a trusted resource for clients both big and small for nearly 20 years.
