BEGINNINGS

A Business Evolution.

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 Impactful People NW.

2015

Jennifer founded Ichor Studios in 2015. Her goal was to create a different business culture by creating a nimble web development firm.

2016

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.

2017

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.

2025

Ichor started with 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.

OUR VALUES

Cultivating Relationships to Better Serve your Business.

Integrity

Ichor believes in doing right by our clients. That means we’ll make recommendations based on your best interests rather than ours.

Creativity

We’re a team of creatives who find inspiration through learning. That’s why we’re always searching for new tricks or the next big idea that will help us deliver big for our clients.

Humility

Nobody knows your business better than you do and recognizing this fact keeps us humble. We approach each new project ready and eager to learn from our clients, so we can provide customized solutions to their pressing needs.

Optimization

Ichor’s focus on optimization allows us to continually refine our processes so we can deliver services in more efficient and affordable ways. We take this same attitude of constant self-reflection into our new projects, so we can help our clients operate more efficiently as well.

Respect

We believe that diversity fosters strength and that’s why our inclusive team welcomes people with different backgrounds, cultures, races, and genders.

OUR COMMUNITY EFFORT

We Believe in Giving Back & Community Service.

Our work revolves around local businesses and non-profits because we believe they’re the lifeblood of any community. We believe in giving back by volunteering & donating to non-profits in the community.

THE ICHOR REFERRAL PROGRAM ®

Happy Clients, Stronger Communities.

When you refer a client that signs with Ichor studios, you’ll receive a $150 credit towards any of our products or services. Or, you can choose to donate that amount to a non-profit of your choice which Ichor will happily match.
