About PDG & Associates
PDG & Associates was founded by Paul Gurney in 1996 in Portland, Maine (USA). Seeing the advantages to nimble, lean organizations, he assembled a core, expert team of designers and programmers to produce creative, effective websites for companies throughout New England.

For many years PDG has worked closely with Dietz Associates, Yes! Marketing Group, and other agile firms to provide a complete range of services to special Maine and New Hampshire businesses and organizations. In 2013 he co-founded a new web services firm which specializes in advanced html5 web applications.

During the past decade of business, PDG has serviced ad agencies, large and small corporations, hotels, photographers, graphic designers, nonprofits, hospitals and more. Our earliest clients were large Maine advertising agencies; this gave us valuable experience from the outset in thinking big about the business of design and identity, without sacrificing efficiency and the personal touch. It's been a great time for all of us, and we look forward to years of creative technology applications!

About the team
As principal of PDG & Associates, Paul Gurney's specialties include strategic business analysis, technology issues, usability and user interface design, content management design, and creative thinking. An important aspect of web application development is website architecture, and Paul's architectural studies at Georgia Tech (Atlanta, Georgia) revealed and honed a special mindset needed for creating great websites.

The point everyone is missing is that in Technoland, nothing ever replaces anything. E-book readers won’t replace books. The iPhone won’t replace e-book readers. Everything just splinters. They will all thrive, serving their respective audiences.
