Agency: Parliament Front-end Developer: Eric Van Holtz Back-end Developer: Alex Van Holtz

Parliament is a design agency located in PDX.

They target specific industries they've defined as: Things with Wheels, Hook & Bullet, The Great Outdoors, and Surf. They can really do it all.

Parliament has a beautiful collection of photography assets and the website does a really nice job showcasing that content, especially in their Journal posts.

Pre-designed and developed content modules give the website a ton of flexibility. They all have available layout, theme, and style options too.

There are behind the scenes features like custom landing pages that are used to target potential clients. Also, an entire job applicant management system where you can rate each candidate, write notes, and have easy access to their infomation.


The Parliament website is filled with beautiful hi-res photography, content blocks, and excellent typography.

Eric is that rare developer who respects the integrity of a given design, yet knows the best way to enhance user experience and systematize a site’s structure.

He actively contributes to brainstorms and elevates every project he’s involved with.

Online Store

We used Craft Commerce to power the shop which gave us the flexibility to completely customize the experience.

Product Detail

Featuring a big bold buy button with built in functionality to display a close up product shot on hover with size and color availability.

The team wrote up some ridiculous product descriptions and is reason enough to hit that buy button.

Custom shopping UI

Beautiful product shots, add to cart animation, and dark themed cart.

Parliament has a strong grip on their brand identity and know exactly who they are.

The website is packed full of features – the fully customizable pages and content, fullscreen navigation and weighted CTAs, targeted landing pages, a custom store, and the applicant management system.

They've been known to host happy hours to anyone who wants to hang. Definitely stop by and say hi to these rad dudes if you're in the area.
