About

Purple Pen Productions is an interactive and creative agency based in Los Angeles, California. Founded in 2009, we’re focused on building beautiful, effective, and affordable websites for small businesses and nonprofits.

We’re small, but mighty. We are well-known in the WordPress community for our speaking, organizing, and writing. We believe in the ideals of the open source community – collaboration, cooperation, and sharing of ideas.

We also believe in community – we are active members in the WordPress and jQuery communities in Southern California. We also helped to organize WordCamp Los Angeles in 2013 and the first annual Website Weekend Los Angeles in 2013.
