Our Commitment to Our Community.
Edge One Media is a Digital Marketing Agency located in the beautiful Pacific Northwest town of Tigard, Oregon a suburb in the Portland Metro Area. Our main focus is on re-defining brands, analyzing where they are and where they strive to be in order to position their brand as a leader in their industry. We do this through solid brand design and language consistency, strategic content strategy, and connection to their target market(s) through Social Media and Ad Channel Management. We are experienced strategists with a unique approach to transforming product and service brands into a more tightly-focused, cohesive presentation.
Our Design and Marketing Portfolio shows some of the many clients we have worked with locally, nationally, and internationally, but what it doesn’t demonstrate is the value our websites and marketing plans have added to their businesses. There are many agencies who can provide you with the same services, but we feel confident that no one will bring you the value we do.
In addition to the value we provide our clients, we also believe strongly in giving back. We offer non profit discounts because our founders have sat on many non profit boards and know the power those dollars saved can have. We give back our time, talent and treasure to many local and national non profits, because we are committed to doing our part in making our community stronger together. We welcome you to join us and learn more about how you can “Give Your Brand a Refreshing Edge” with us.
Our Capabilities include: Branding, Web Design, Web Development, Design, Marketing, Content Strategy, Social Media Management and Implementation, Retargeting, Ad Channel Management, and Analytics.

Meet one half of our fearless leadership team—Nicholas De Salvo, the CEO and founder of Edge One Media!
From his humble beginnings at Portland’s Grout Elementary School where he excelled at naptime and singing the alphabet, Nicholas has since refined those skills into an espresso addiction and a hearty love of musicals. Nicholas is not only Edge One’s founder but also the heart and soul of our Web Design team; he juggles everything from online advertising to website development to podcast creation. As our “Chief Troublemaker,” he likes the office to maintain a healthy balance of working hard and playing hard.
Nicholas is a Portland native who loves playing music and singing, watching TV across genres from professional wrestling to Gilmore Girls, attending Portland Trailblazer games, and spending time with his family.
His fun fact? He’s run 4 marathons but struggles to walk up more than 4 flights of stairs!
Say hello to the other half of our leadership team—Megan De Salvo, our Marketing Director and Creator of Opportunities!
Megan had studied Theater at La Quinta High School before making the trek up to Ashland to attend Southern Oregon University, which is where she met Nicholas—and the rest is history, as they say! Since joining Edge One Media in 2010, she has become the office’s “jack of all trades” by expanding the marketing network, interfacing with clients, managing projects, and so much more.
When Megan isn’t in the office, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends, reading, and watching musicals with Nicholas.
Her fun fact? She is a member of the International Thespian Society and has won awards for her stage acting, directing, and voiceover work!
Say hello to Jake, our Lead Web Designer at Edge One!
Born and raised in Portland, Jake had briefly flown the coop during his undergraduate years at the University of Redlands to study Business Administration and Graphic Design & Photography before he returned to his rightful place in the PNW. As our Lead Web Designer, Jake takes on the bulk of the work on our design team and acts as Nicholas’ right-hand man. His usual responsibilities vary depending on the client, but typically he assists in company branding, web design and development, and meeting with clients.
His favorite activities to do in his free time include doing restaurant and bar crawls, playing basketball and video games, and spending time with his two cats.
His fun fact? Jake had joined Edge One as an intern at 18 years old and is still with us nearly a decade later!
Meet Erica, our Social Media Strategist!
Erica was raised in a small town in Oregon before moving to Washington to study Creative Writing and Women & Gender Studies at Seattle University. Following her graduation, she moved back to Oregon and has lived in the Portland metropolitan area since then. In her role, Erica handles all things social media-related at Edge One. Whether it’s scheduling out social media posts for clients, handling engagement on social platforms, or creating Instagram reels, Erica is the strategist you need for your business.
When she’s not at Edge One, Erica likes to watch her favorite reality TV shows “Survivor” and “Real Housewives” as well as spend time with her fiancée and their three children (cats).
Her fun fact? She is half-Japanese and had attended a Japanese immersion school for 7 years!
Meet one of our Web Designers—Madison!
Madison is from Port Townsend, Washington and is a recent graduate from Evergreen State College where she studied Visual Arts and Web Design. In her role as a Web Designer, she does everything from building and maintaining websites to communicating with clients and even writing newsletters.
She is a recent Portland transplant and has found that she enjoys perusing the local Craiglist listings when she’s not doodling or making crafts. As a woman of duality, she likes watching TV that ranges from her comfort show “New Girl” to her favorite “discomfort” show “Black Mirror”.
Her fun fact? She has a pet snake that she had rescued!
Say hello to Kathryn, our Administrative Assistant at Edge One!

As Edge One’s Administrative Assistant, Kathryn’s day-to-day duties range from scheduling meetings with clients and answering phone calls to managing projects and keeping the office organized.
In her free time, she likes reading and writing, watercolor painting, exploring the outdoors through hikes, and watching her favorite film, “Labyrinth”.

Why Edge One?
We care about everyone we come in contact with. Whether you are new in business, a seasoned business owner, or a non profit in need, we want to set you up for success. We are a family owned and community involved company that always has your success on our mind.
We believe strongly in the power of transparency. Being crystal clear with one another from the start and throughout our time together is best. Sometimes we find the things that you don’t think are important to share with us, are the most valuable pieces of your marketing puzzle.
From our initial consultation on we lead with value above cost. There are plenty of other companies who can create a Marketing Plan, Build a Website, or Design your Brand Assets, but very few provide the value we do. You can see it in our stellar reviews.
