A History of Kilpatrick Design


Kilpatrick Design was founded in Winston-Salem North Carolina in January of 2006 by Megan Kilpatrick. Megan's focus on customer service was as valuable as her education and experience as a graphic designer. The commitment to service and quality paid off, and the Kilpatrick Design client base grew steadily through referrals.

Later that year, Matthew Moen started working with Megan on digitial projects, bringing technical expertise from building enterprise software for Fortune 100 companies. Matt was attracted to Kilpatrick Design by the agility and results oriented work of a small agency. 

Late in 2006, Kilpatrick Design produced its first website using an open source content management system.

2007 Drupal

The developer-experience of the first website CMS we implemented for a client was terrible, so Matt spent the next 12 months researching platforms, setting up test sites and tinkering with them, building a custom platform, and ultimately landing on Drupal as our primary content management system. 

2008 Incorporated

Matt became a partner at Kilpatrick Design in 2008 when the business changed from a sole proprietorship to an S-Corp.

2010 First Hires

First full-time employee hire, Derek Adams, to help keep up with the increasing demand for web design and development services. 

2012 Downtown Winston-Salem Office

The team continued to grow and in 2012 Kilpatrick Design transitioned from virtual offices to an elegant, historic 3000 sq ft space on Trade Street in downtown Winston-Salem

2014 Heading to Denver

In December of 2014, Kilpatrick Design's partners decided the best path for growth would be to expand in larger markets — for the opportunities in business development as well as talent recruitment. They selected Denver because it's among the fastest growing cities in the US, and it has a thriving tech community. (Also, the weather is amazing.)

2015 Western HQ

In June of 2015, Kilpatrick Design opened a Denver office in the LoDo neighborhood.

The Winston-Salem office remained headquarters, and Kilpatrick Design continued hiring in both locations. 

2016 Alloy

In August of 2016, the company revealed a new name and image — Alloy Design + Development. The Denver crew moved to a larger office space in Denver's historic Five Points neighborhood, shortly after adding an office in downtown Raleigh
