About Aquarian Web Studio

Our distributed, US-based, all-female core web team. We do a lot of zoom meetings - don't be surprised if we show up just like this.

Aquarian Web Studio, formerly Petroglyph Creative, is a web-focused tech strategy company supporting authoritative, mission-led brands, orgs, and entrepreneurs with strengthened web and app presences. We develop and support incredible design with modern code frameworks and increasingly important techniques (SEO, accessibility) all while supporting administrative simplicity and ease of use. Aquarian websites have it all.

In other words: we know how to help people with high-performing websites. And we know how to help you get more out of them.

We are Craft CMS Verified Partners and ExpressionEngine Silver Partners, two platforms that we trust with Security, Stability, and Scalability - driving lasting growth strategy. We are one of two companies that have been designated partners for both softwares. When you trust Aquarian to build your website, you can be assured that the software is the best, the totally-beautiful design works for everyone (even administrators!) and the code is masterfully executed. You can also be assured that your priorities are ours and that we can execute what you need in every facet.

Working here

We are aggressive students of stable, improving technologies and new, emerging technologies. We offer flexible schedules, predictable hourly pay, bonuses, friendly camera-optional zoom meetings, and meaningful work that improves our clients' lives as well as our own. Our collective expertise is freely available to one another where questions are asked - we collaborate with each other for skill improvement, thought strategy, and creative expansion. Whether it's an interaction with each other or with the client, we set out to enjoy everything.

Our philosophy encourages contributors to strike a joyful balance between work and life, where each gives back to the other. Many of our clients share this philosophy. Aquarian is a go-to provider to advertising agencies, non-profits, woman-owned businesses, or any mission-driven organization seeking a highly-experienced, collaborative website and social media partner.

And not to brag, but we offer an all-female core web team:

Caroline C. Blaker - Principal, Tech Lead, Art Director

Caroline C. Blaker has been developing websites since 2003 and has “grown up” watching the changing landscape of the internet as it has matured and evolved. Caroline got started developing websites independently in April of 2010 and founded Petroglyph Creative in August, later that year. She handled it all until 2018 when the team started to come on and since then has had the chance to lead in every competency. Today she leads meetings, design and dev decisions, and runs operations. If you catch her on an off-moment, she's probably running around chasing Mehera, 3 or playing Fortnite with Mahlon, 9. Caroline lives in Albuquerque, NM.

Demetria likes to use the term Full Stack Designer to describe what she does. With a degree in Graphic Design she gravitates toward web design and has a passion for UX/UI but still enjoys making the occasional wine label and iconography. After living in the Pacific Northwest for almost a decade, she has finally returned to her roots and is back home in the Southwest, enjoying life with her kiddo and doggo. Now that she is back home, Demetria uses her skills to volunteer on a board in the same neighborhood she grew up in.
