Collaborative

Eggs + Rice is your one-stop shop for all your communication needs. Our team of experienced creative professionals work closely with you to help you realize your communication goals in word and image.

Flexible

At Eggs + Rice, we understand the importance of scalability. In addition to our core team of creatives, we maintain a reserve force to handle those big projects that just can’t wait. For instance, we played an important role in the Google NEXT event. We met the demand and produced more than 200 high-profile projects in a few short weeks. But our flexibility goes far beyond being able to handle big jobs. We know how vital it is that your project turn out just the way you want. That’s why we assign you your own personal art director to act as your main point of contact. Our cloud-based, Google-integrated management system means your project will go fast and smooth, and you’ll get regular updates on its progress.

Fun

We love what we do and it shows. Our team of creative pros have the talent, skills, and creative chops to produce the kind of work that gets people to sit up and take notice.

The story of
eggs + rice

How we came to be

A few years ago, Brittney was heading up a creative team for a marquee high-tech client at a small design studio in Seattle. When the agency decided to focus on a different kind of business, Britt branched out and created her own company. Eggs + Rice was born. During the ensuing years, hard work and an undying love of good design has earned Eggs + Rice a place of prominence among the strongest creative shops in the region.

Eggs + Rice Team

Why the name?

Our company name is inspired by our CEO’s first date with Marty, now Brittney’s husband. Being starving artists, and lacking the funds for a proper meal, they made eggs and rice for dinner. Indeed, for Brittney it was a humble beginning, but the audaciousness of it served as a landmark.  It took a decade, but through hard work, perseverance, and a loving dedication to good design, Eggs + Rice was founded and has since grown into a thriving company serving a wide client base within and outside Google.

Our team

Experience counts, and when you work with the creative team at Eggs + Rice that’s exactly what you get. Everyone here has at least a couple of decades of designing under their belt so we know what it takes to make your story sing, no ifs ands or buts. We’ve all done prize-winning work with the big shiny accounts, but that doesn’t mean we’re all about awards and accolades. From the humblest data sheet to a full-blown product launch, we apply the same high standards to everything we touch.
