SlickFish Studios, LLC is a creative Maine web design company located on Union Wharf, just steps from Portland, Maine’s working waterfront. Since 2002, our Old Port, Portland loft has inspired the SlickFish team with the sights, sounds, and smells of coastal Maine. SlickFish Studios has designed and developed hundreds of professional, modern and creative websites for clients from all over the globe. We are resolute in our mission to discover the best possible platforms for sharing the stories of our valued clients with the digital world through experienced, smart, sophisticated web design, logo and graphic design.
Gordon Holman is the owner and lead creative at SlickFish Studios. He holds degrees in Visual Arts, and Psychology from Bowdoin College, as well as a Master of Fine Arts in Design and Technology from Parsons School of Design in New York City. When he’s not in the studio, Gordon can be found skiing from East to West, or boating up and down MidCoast Maine, most often, Boothbay Harbor.

[Parsons has been ranked the #1 art and design school in the country and #2 in the world!]

Kevin Batdorf is a Florida native who recently spent the past decade exploring the Asian Pacific. He’s no stranger to beautiful coastlines and can often be found sipping a fresh mango shake while crunching some serious code, keeping things solid and secure behind the scenes.

Ryan Estevez is a graphic design jack-of-all-trades often working on infographics, layout, & brand elements. He is a self-taught artist and freelancer living in CT, but hails from Brooklyn (and his city roots run deep). Ryan also loves coffee, reading, and road trips.

Sarah Holman is our project manager and resident copy generator. She answers email inquiries and keeps tabs on work flow so there are no log jams. She is also a freelance writer, cheese enthusiast, and thrift store devotee. Sarah grew up in rural Maine, surrounded by trees and hills, but living in Portland has made her an ocean-lover as well. She is a BFA graduate of Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York.
