Tributary is a Portland-based boutique branding and design agency specializing in purpose-driven design. We work with underrepresented entrepreneurs to create meaningful branding, thoughtful packaging, and impactful websites that connect with their audiences.

A tributary is a river that flows into a larger body of water. A small stream traveling, collaborating, and connecting with larger streams and vessels felt like the perfect analogy for Founder Marielle Baloghs branding process and relationship with her valued clients.

We are dedicated practitioners of our client-centric approach. Our team is passionate about partnering with problem solvers, disrupters, and tastemakers who are leading businesses that fill a gap in an underserved market.

We were motivated by our forward-thinking clients to create work that engages their target audiences with intentionality. Impactful, memorable design is more than just trends and aesthetics; it's about nurturing lasting relationships with consumers that withstand the test of time. That's why we work closely with our clients to develop creative strategies that feel like approachable, collaborative pathways to a bigger picture, just like a tributary.
