Gabe Ripley

Director of Creative Services

Time with company: 6 yrs 5 mos

The turn of the millennium was both the end of the world and the start of Gabe’s career which began with Coldwater Creek where he would spend the better part of 14 years. His tenure brought with it much growth and a variety of job titles, from Production Designer, to Web Designer, to UI/UX Designer and Developer. The experience would shape many aspects of his professional life and introduce him to people that would go on to influence the next chapter of his journey.

The summer of 2014 brought about the collapse of Coldwater Creek, but also the aforementioned next chapter. In June of the same year Gabe accepted the Director of Creative Services position at JEBCommerce. During his time with the company he’s been Designer, Developer, Marketing Coordinator, Brand Police™, part-time IT support, and, most recently, the creator of the Conversion Rate Audit service.

When not at his desk helping make the web a better place, Gabe enjoys 3D modeling and printing, wood working and turning, gaming of any kind, building and collecting mechanical keyboards, and helping coordinate the local WordPress meetup.

Shortened URLs, we've all seen them, those cute but mysterious tiny URLs that start with bit.ly, goo.gl, ow.ly, or for those who've been around a while, tinyurl.com. For some time, the best (perhaps only) way to squeeze an address down to a few scant characters was to use a…
